As summer draws near, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is making it easy for shoppers to reel in a wide selection of prizes with the MILITARY STAR Ultimate Outdoor Sweepstakes.

Between April 1 and May 1, shoppers will be automatically entered in the sweepstakes each time they use their MILITARY STAR card at any Exchange facility, including main stores, Expresses and Class Six locations, or at www.shopmyexchange.com.

One grand-prize winner will receive the Ultimate Camping Experience, valued at $2,049. The prize includes a Coleman camping package featuring an Evanston eight-person tent, two queen double-high air beds, an NXT 100 grill and a $1,500 Exchange gift card. The second-place winner will take home the Ultimate Backyard Makeover, which is worth $1,099 and includes a Courtyard Creations Brunspark patio set along with a $500 Exchange gift card.

Fifteen third-place winners will receive the Ultimate Fishing/Survival Experience, which includes a Ready 2 Fish package that comes with a rod, reel, tackle and an extra-large three-tray tackle box. A Gerber Bear Grylls paracord fixed-blade knife and a $100 Exchange gift card are also included.

“These prize packages will make it easy for the winners to spend some quality time in the great outdoors this summer,” said Exchange Chief of Staff Col. Tom Ockenfels. “Entering couldn’t be easier. All it takes is a swipe of a MILITARY STAR card.”

Winners will be announced on or about June 16.
