Exchange Taking a Bite out of Dining Bill April 15

RELEASE DATE: April 9, 2013

DALLAS – Military shoppers basking in the relief of completing their taxes can also find many happy returns in the food court on April 15 as those using a MILITARY STAR® Card will receive 20 percent off their entire food order.

“After filing taxes, a good meal in the food court is a just reward,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “Diners who reach for a MILITARY STAR® Card at an Exchange direct-operated restaurant get 10 percent off their bill every day. But, for this special occasion, we’re doubling the savings.”

In addition to getting more for less at the food court, MILITARY STAR® Card holders receive exclusive savings at the pump with a five cents a gallon discount every time they fuel up at the Express. On top of the everyday savings, steeper discounts are offered periodically throughout the year.
