From March 18-24, Exchange Shoppers Can Save 15 Percent on First-Day Purchases With A MILITARY STAR Card

DALLAS – Military shoppers can “think spring” with an extra discount on first-day purchases with a new MILITARY STAR card at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service.

Shoppers who use a new card for the first time from March 18 to March 24 will receive a 15 percent discount on all purchases instead of the standard 10 percent discount that is regularly offered.

The discount is valid in-store at Army and Air Force Exchange Service, Marine Corps and Coast Guard facilities and online at shopmyexchange.com and can be combined with other promotions. The discount will appear as a credit on shoppers’ billing statements.

Each time cardholders make a purchase with their MILITARY STAR card, they earn points as part of a rewards program. Cardholders earn 2 points for every $1 spent in Exchange stores, food courts, mall vendors and on shopmyexchange.com. Shoppers automatically receive a $20 Exchange rewards card for every 2,000 points earned. The card can be redeemed anywhere Exchange gift cards are accepted. 

Other benefits of the card include:

  • Competitive interest rate of 10.49 percent—an industry-leading interest rate.
  • No annual, late or over-limit fees.
  • 10 percent off Exchange food court purchases.
  • 5-cents-per-gallon savings at Exchange gas stations.
  • Free standard shipping at shopyexchange.com.

To apply for a MILITARY STAR card, authorized shoppers can visit their local Exchange or log on to www.myecp.com.
