Exchange rewards good grades

Hard-working students deserve recognition, so the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is rewarding military students in grades 1-12 who maintain a “B” or better average with the “You Made the Grade” program.

“We love it when military students excel,” said the Davis-Monthan Exchange General Manager Cathy J. Ely, “so it’s natural to encourage and reward great grades.”

For the past thirteen years, this program has rewarded schoolchildren around the world with a “You Made the Grade” coupon booklet listing a multitude of free products and discounted offers. The 2013 version includes a free Burger King Hamburger kid’s meal, Subway 6-inch combo, $2 off any new release CD or DVD at Power Zone and a complimentary haircut, among other great prizes. In addition, qualifying students can register for a drawing to win a $2,000, $1,500 or $500 Exchange gift card.

Students can receive a “You Made the Grade” booklet by simply presenting a valid military ID and proof of an overall “B” average at the Davis-Monthan Exchange at the manager’s office. Those eligible may receive one coupon booklet and submit one drawing entry each qualifying report card.
