Exchange Doubles Savings on Gas Dec. 18-20 for MILITARY STAR Card Users

DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is keeping military shoppers’ wallets from running on empty this holiday season by doubling the discount MILITARY STAR® cardholders receive on fuel.  

From Dec. 18 through Dec. 20, drivers fueling up with a MILITARY STAR card at Army and Air Force gas stations will receive 10 cents off per gallon instead of the everyday 5-cents-per-gallon discount.

“With the last weekend of holiday shopping approaching, we’re giving military shoppers an extra reason to come on base or post and see what the Exchange has in store,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The extra savings at the pump are all part of the value authorized shoppers find at the Exchange.”  

After fueling up, shoppers who stop into the Express and make an additional purchase with their MILITARY STAR card will be treated to a free coffee or fountain drink. 

When drivers use their MILITARY STAR card at the pump, they’ll earn points as part of the new rewards program, which launched this fall. Cardholders earn 2 points for every $1 spent in Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy exchange stores, and wherever else the MILITARY STAR card is accepted. For every 2,000 points earned, shoppers will automatically receive a $20 rewards card.

Every day, shoppers can reap the benefits of paying with their MILITARY STAR card. Besides the typical discount of 5 cents per gallon on all gas purchases, cardholders enjoy a 10 percent discount on all Exchange food court purchases year-round and free standard shipping at shopmyexchange.com.
