FORT LEE, Va. — Commissary patrons have plenty of opportunities for extra savings with February promotions focusing on heart health awareness, the Super Bowl, the Winter Olympics, Valentine’s Day and more.

“February is a busy month for patrons who want to maximize their commissary benefit,” said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency’s sales director. “With all the big sporting events, and of course, Valentine’s Day, we have targeted promotions to help extend patron savings even farther.”

Russ also encouraged patrons to check out www.commissaries.com for a treasure trove of recipes. The website offers access to the “Savings Center” for a sales flyer with current sales pricing and the “Thinking Outside the Box” section, which offers quick solutions for dietitian-approved and economical meal options. The Savings Center also has links to the Commissary Rewards Card, and information on featured promotional items, commissary store brands, links to coupons and more.

“With February being Heart Health Month, our patrons can also use their commissary benefit to choose a better lifestyle by using our Nutrition Guide shelf sign program with color-coded labels that depict key nutrient attributes including low sodium, low fat, whole grain, no added sugar, good source of fiber and organic,” she said.

February’s sales promotions are made possible through the commissary’s collaboration with its industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for promotional programs. Also, the Exclusive Savings link, www.commissaries.com/partners.cfm, has more coupons, specials, promotions, sales and healthy recipes.

Patrons are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:
