The commissary will give you cash back or gift certificates/vouchers if you have overage. I have accumulated as much as $2k in gift certs before using overage from special orders. It is in their store policy that they have to give you back any overage. On a side note wal-mart also recently updated their policy to say the customer can receive cash back for overage.

Where does it say that about overage? I have been combing all over to find out what they do with overage if you go neg?

I e-mailed DECA and here was their response. I now keep the below referenced Operating Instruction on my coupon binder.

Dear Ms. Johnson,

Thank you for contacting us through the Defense Commissary Agency's web site
to address your concern regarding applying the overage from your coupons to
your remaining groceries.

Without actually seeing your coupons and the items you presented for purchase,
I cannot unequivocally tell you if the your commissary should or should not
have accepted them.

In general, if the value of the coupon exceeds the cost of the item, customers
are to be given the full face value of the coupon. DeCA Directive 40-6,
paragraph 7-4n states, "Valid coupons will be entered at the value stated on
the coupons. If the value of the coupon exceeds the cost of the product, the
customer will be given the full value of the coupon." An exception to this is
if a coupon states that the value is up to, but not to exceed a certain dollar
amount and provides a space for the cashier to write in the cost price of the
item. The customer will be given credit for only the actual price of the
product.

Also, some manufacturers have included verbiage on the terms of their coupons
to the effect of no cash back if coupon exceeds the retail price of the item.
Because we must comply with the manufacturers' terms and conditions, in these
instances, the coupon would be processed for the cost of the item with no
overage applied to the remainder of the order or cash back. The terms
specified on each coupon must be individually evaluated when presented for
redemption and can only be accepted in accordance with the terms stipulated on
the coupon.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to address your concern. We encourage
you to continue taking advantage of your commissary benefit and the 30 percent
plus savings. If you need assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to
contact the Store Director of your local commissary. They can personally
assist you in the resolution of your commissary issues.

Sincerely,

Rey Andres

my commissary has only been entering in the amount of the product if the coupon is over the price of the product. An example if I buy something that is 4.00 but I have a coupon for $5/1 for that item the cashier manually enters $4.00 for my coupon.
On my next trip to the store I will be sure to watch for this again and correct the error. WOW

Well now you know! :-) Carry the DECA policy and eduate them! Of course, sometimes they adjust the price when we aren't watching the register, but I guess we just have to pay better attention! (I unfortunately notice when I get home...)
