DALLAS – Military shoppers clipped out and cashed in more than $1.5 million in coupons and promotions last year at Army and Air Force Exchanges worldwide.

Exchange shoppers literally “cleaned up” on one of the most successful promotions – a $2 off coupon for Tide, Gain or Cheer detergents.

“More than 66,000 shoppers took advantage of that one offer,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “As a result, Exchange shoppers saved more than $132,000 from just that promotion.”

In 2013, the Exchange is providing a variety of exclusive savings through the mail and online. Exchange shoppers in the continental United States can text Exchange to 95613 for additional savings delivered to their mobile devices.

Shoppers who “like” the Exchange on www.facebook.com/aafes.bx.px enjoy coupon offers, participate in exciting contests and join an online community of current and former military members.

Customers can also log on to www.shopmyexchange.com and check the Savings Center to see what “Super Daily Specials,” “Weekly Promotions” and “Advertised Specials” are available.
