Once the app is downloaded, shoppers can scroll through for coupons and contest information. Touching the “Promotions” button brings up a list of special Exchange savings. The “BE FIT” button gives shoppers access to workouts and healthy recipes to keep them motivated to achieve their fitness goals. 

To access more digital content, including videos, product information and shopping lists, shoppers can touch the “Scan” button and hover over select images in Exchange specialty catalogs and on in-store signs. A colorful Extra label identifies what pages and signs are tied to digital content.

For Valentine’s Day, Easter and other celebrations throughout the year, customers can tap the app for recipes and other specialized content to enhance their shopping experience. 

“This app brings a whole new dimension to connecting with the Exchange,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “With the Extra app, shoppers receive latest savings anywhere, any time on their smartphones.” 

To find the app, shoppers should search for “Exchange Extra” on the App Store or Google Play.
