Schofield Barracks Commissary ID Scanning

The rollout of commissary ID scanning was scheduled to begin at the Schofield Barracks commissary December 02, 2013; however it has been indefinitely postponed due to system difficulties. Once it is rolled out, this process will be similar to what you’re already used to at the door to verify your eligibility to shop at the commissary. Except now, at check-out your ID card will be scanned at the register, in addition to your photo being confirmed with your identity. If you do self check-out the attendant will have to verify your photo matches your identity.

The information collected and managed by the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) includes card ID number, rank, military status, branch of service, age, household size, and ZIP codes of residence and duty station, in addition to a record of what products/items were purchased. Your name, address and phone number are not collected. This information will be used to generate demographic and sales data across a broad field (not on an individual basis) to better understand what items and in what quantities are in demand at the commissary. For more information, refer to the blog on Military ID Scanning at Commissaries to Commence.

The rollout date will vary by commissary so you will need to ask at your commissary when the scanning will begin. Most commissaries will post signs 1-2 weeks prior to the system going into effect.
