|Commissary Rewards Card available now at McCoy [ back to top ]|
|The Fort McCoy Commissary, building 1537, is
among the first to use the new Commissary Rewards Card.
The card now is available in the Fort McCoy Commissary to authorized commissary patrons, and it is being tested in select commissaries worldwide. The card’s rollout to all commissaries comes later this fall.
After picking up a Commissary Rewards Card, patrons can register cards online from a link on the commissary website. Digital coupons then can be downloaded on the spot to the card and redeemed in the commissary.
The free card allows customers to reduce the number of paper coupons they clip and carry — saving them time and money. New offers typically will be posted online every two to three weeks.
Visit the commissary website at https://www.commissaries.com/rewards/index.cfm or call the Fort McCoy Commissary at 608-388-3542 for more information.

|Exchange Shuttle Program increases selection [ back to top ]|
|The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is
delivering increased selection, savings and service with its Shuttle
To ensure military Families living and working near Fort McCoy enjoy the same selection as those at Scott Air Force Base, for example, merchandise can be shuttled in based on specific customer requests.
Everything from furniture to tactical gear can be transferred through the program, meaning shoppers everywhere are guaranteed the largest-possible selection of competitively-priced goods.
“If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask a manager if it can be brought in from another location,” said the Exchange’s General Manager, Steve Ard. “If another nearby Exchange stocks it, chances are we’ll be able to get it to the closest Exchange.”
To use the program, shoppers can go to any Exchange Customer Service area and ask to speak to a manager. After recording the request and checking availability, shoppers will be advised of a projected arrival date.
The Shuttle Program is a free service at all Exchanges, Troop Stores and Expresses around the world.
