If you buy in bulk at commissaries you’ll want to pay attention to some new rules from the Defense Commissary Agency.

Commissaries will no longer accept orders or issue refunds for “unreasonable quantities of items.”

The will also no longer allow multiple or split transactions for orders with coupon “overage,” and commissaries will report you if they suspect you are buying too many items.

The new rules were posted on the DCA’s Facebook page on Wednesday.

“In general, quantities could be considered unreasonable when they exceed 3 cases or 36 units; this could include frequent or multiple orders/transactions in an attempt to stay below this threshold,” the announcement says.

It does not say when the new rules will start.

    This is just crazy. I have a large family so of course we buy in bulk. I have 5 small children and would prefer to not go to the grocery store every week. They really want to put military families on welfare. A shame.
