A refreshed website may help commissary-eligible shoppers enjoy convenience to go along with their savings.
Shop.commissaries.com makes it easier for shoppers to find savings and utilize the commissary’s Click2GO curbside pickup service. The new look “will have a positive outcome on your time management and your budget,” said Sgt. Maj. Michael R. Saucedo, USMC, senior enlisted advisor to the director of the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), in a Sept. 27 press release announcing the change.
Shoppers can select their store to access weekly sales flyers, see prices, and more.
The move is designed to bring the commissaries more in line with web platforms operated by private sector grocery stores. Information that had been featured on the old DeCA homepage – press releases, safety recalls, corporate data – can be found at this link.
The new site also promotes DeCA’s Click2Go mobile app (Google Play | Apple App Store) and highlights expanded eligibility for the commissaries, part of a benefits expansion included in the FY 2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) expanding shopping privileges to:
- All veterans with VA-documented service-connected disabilities
- Designated primary caregivers (under VA's Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers)
- All Purple Heart recipients and former prisoners of war
