DALLAS – In honor of Veterans Day, Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers can save an extra 5 percent when using their MILITARY STAR card from Nov. 6 through Nov. 8 at Army and Air Force Exchange locations and online at shopmyexchange.com.

Besides the extra savings, MILITARY STAR cardholders earn 2 points for every $1 spent. For every 2,000 points earned, shoppers automatically receive a $20 MILITARY STAR rewards card. (Items purchased on the 0 percent interest military clothing line of credit are not eligible for reward points.)
