For the items I get, it usually is cheaper at the commissary. Thats not the same for everyone. I dont coupon or shop sales.

I shop weekly. I find it quite a bit cheaper then the stores in my area. I do think there may be better prices somewhere else, but I don't want to drive all over to find them.

I go major shopping every two weeks.  I go to the commissary once in a blue moon.

I'm not so sure that it's cheaper, but it's literally right across the street from where I work so... that's where I go. lol

I find it cheaper compared to Walmart and other chain stores. It's about 30 min from me so I go once a month if that...

Our Walmart is always out of the things I buy. We get reward points towards gas at one grocery store. If I am up on base, I will shop at the commissary.

I don't go to the commissary as often as I used to.  We live about 15-20 minutes from it and I can get just as good prices (for the most part) at Walmart Market and Sam's Club...plus I'm a bulk shopper, so I buy most things at Sams Club.

Commissary we go usually for meats, dumplings, korean things and soy sauce in a gallon tin.

Everything else I tend to get cheaper at aldis, or Wal-Mart.. even publix.

we live nowhere near a commissary, so I don't shop there regularly like I did at our last bases. But I shop at Wal-Mart and Aldi.
