100 cardholders worldwide share $30,000 in sweepstakes

Living a Be Fit lifestyle is its own reward for Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Airmen, but a bonus never hurts.

Military Star’s “Ignite Your Workout” sweepstakes will reward 100 lucky military shoppers worldwide with a $300 exchange gift card each. Shoppers automatically earn an entry with two purchases at their local commissary plus two purchases at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service with their Military Star® card from June 1 through 30.

The Exchange has been partnering with the Defense Commissary Agency to highlight better-for-you choices as part of the Exchange’s Be Fit program to encourage readiness and resiliency in Airmen and their families. The “Ignite Your Workout “sweepstakes is the latest initiative to promote awareness of the healthy living program.

Participating operations include the Army & Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard exchanges;;;; exchange concessionaires and the commissary. Winners will be announced on or about July 31. Official rules are available now at
