DALLAS – As temperatures heat up this summer, the discounts inside direct operated Army and Air Force Exchange Service restaurants are getting cooler for Military Star TM Card holders.

From July 5 to Sept. 21, every food or drink order made with a Military Star TM Card will be discounted by 20 percent – a full 79 days of savings.

“With all of the other great discounts and contests available to Exchange customers, this is truly shaping up to be a summer of savings,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “The Military StarTM Card already provides its members with many year-round discounts, so promotions like these are just another added perk and ‘thank you’ for shoppers’ service and sacrifice.”

Military StarTM Card users are also entitled to a year-round five-cent discount on Express fuel purchases. For information on the Military Star TM Card, visit www.shopmyexchange.com.
