DALLAS – Diners can spend a little more on Mom by dining and saving at an Army & Air Force Exchange Service restaurant this Mother’s Day as food orders made with a MILITARY STAR® Card on May 12 will be discounted 20 percent.

“According to retail estimates, the average shopper will spend more than $150 on Mother’s Day,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “The Exchange is offering an opportunity to shave a little bit off the bottom line, and, instead of the usual 10 percent off diners enjoy every day when using their MILITARY STAR® Card, for this special day those savings will be doubled.”

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 Army and Air Force gas stations. In addition to the everyday savings, steeper discounts are offered periodically throughout the year.
