Exchange partners with commissary on gift card sales

Beginning June 22, authorized Exchange shoppers will be able to purchase commissary gift cards in select Exchanges.

DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service and the Defense Commissary Agency have joined forces to sell the other’s gift cards in their stores.

Starting June 22, commissary gift cards from $5 to $300 will be available at select Exchanges for purchase. In addition, Exchange gift cards from $5 to $1,500 will be available at commissaries.

Gift cards must still be redeemed at their respective agency or online.

“The Exchange and commissary are working together for the good of the military community, bringing convenience and value to all who serve,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “Both retailers are all-in to support our Warfighters and their families.”

The joint effort showcases the strength of military resale, said Army Command Sgt. Maj. Tomeka N. O’Neal, DeCA’s senior enlisted advisor to the agency director.

“This initiative is another example of the military resale community partnering to offer our customers the best that the installation has to offer for commissary and Exchange shopping,” O’Neal said. “Collaborative efforts such as this reinforce the value of the installation as the No. 1 destination to best serve our service members and their families.”
