If you buy in bulk at military commissaries, you should check out the Defense Commissary Agency’s new limits on how many items customers can buy.

Commissaries will no longer accept orders or issue refunds for “unreasonable quantities of items,” DECA announced on its Facebook page 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.

In other changes, commissaries will 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 announcement says.

The new policy is meant to stop customers from buying items for resale and “excessive monetary refunds,” according to the announcement, which does not say when these changes start. DECA is working on providing customers with more information about the change, a DECA spokesman said on Thursday morning.
