Friday Funday! Exchange Weekly Online Giveaways Celebrate Military Community

Free fridays giveawaysDALLAS – The best day of the week is even better with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s Free Friday giveaways.

Each Friday at Facebook.com/ShopMyExchange, the Department of Defense retailer gives away a popular product. Last year, authorized Exchange shoppers won more than $29,000 in prizes including patio sets, tool chests, robotic vacuums and mattresses.

Among the 2020 winners was Air Force Capt. Andrew Hamilton and his wife, Natalie, who won a Weber grill last summer.

“I commented on the post, but you never really expect to win,” said Hamilton, who is assigned to Fairchild Air Force Base. “Our old grill was failing and needed to be replaced, so I was extremely happy we won a new one. We use it all the time.”

Giveaways so far in 2021 amount to more than $9,000 and include a Husqvarna riding lawn mower, air fryers, gardening packages, cookware, bedding and more.

“Free Fridays are a fun way to connect with our shoppers and contribute to the value the Exchange is so honored to provide,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “The military community makes so many sacrifices, and it’s always a pleasure for the Exchange to salute our heroes with special prizes.”

To enter, authorized Exchange shoppers 18 years and older can comment on the Free Friday posts at Facebook.com/ShopMyExchange. Comments made by 11:59 p.m. Central on the same day will be entered into the weekly drawing.
