The commissary has been receiving mixed reviews lately in the military community. Everything from bare shelves overseas to complaints about short lifespans on produce brought from the commissary has been a topic of discussion.


Even still the commissary is a staple of military life. It’s one of the main benefits of being in the military and despite the upping of prices on or near pay day, shopping there still tends to be considerably cheaper.

What you may not know is that there are a lot of non DOD commissary deals sites out there, and quite a few savings resources via the commissary itself to help you get the best bang for your buck.


This site is open to all members of the military and shares useful information about shopping at the commissary which includes, contest , giveaways , coupons and much more. It has recently been revamped and updated with a blog that has great articles on military life.
