If you have access to a commissary and your a Walgreens shopper, I have some AWESOME news for you! Traci recently received word that the commissary will accept Walgreens Register Rewards as coupons!!!!! This is HUGE, and I mean HUGE news! I do not currently shop at the commissary just because it is so far away, but if they are going to take Register Reward you better believe I will be whopping there! Here is the e-mail that Traci received:
Thank you for bringing the coupons from Walgreens to our attention…the coupons you presented to us CAN be used at the commissary. We can accept manufacturer coupons, however the coupon cannot state that it has limited use in a certain store. For example, the coupons that you gave us stated \”redeemable at Walgreens\”, these coupons will be accepted because it does not state that it is ONLY redeemable at Walgreens.
Thank you again for making this a learning experience for all of here at Fort Carson. We appreciate your patience for allowing us to look further into the situation.
The details in the above e-mail were confirmed by Ms. Danna Eldgridge, head of Customer Service for DECA. This great news as it should apply to all commissaries and it should also apply to all catalinas since they are all technically manufacturer coupons. Just as long as the catalina does not state that it can only be used a a specific store, you should be good to go.
Important: As with all things like this, I doubt it has been communicated down the each of the individual commissaries, so I suggest calling ahead and speaking with the store or customer service manager, so they can have time to check with Ms. Eldgridge if they have any questions. That way, you don’t waist your time shopping only to get denied at the register.
