The Edwards AFB Exchange Express Gas Station.

As military shoppers load up their students’ backpacks with pencils, notebooks and other back-to-school gear, MILITARY STAR card users can fill up on savings at pumps at the†Edwards Express location.

From Aug. 8 to Aug. 10, the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange is doubling the everyday 5-cents-per-gallon gas discount MILITARY STAR cardholders receive when fueling up. On those three days, drivers paying for gas with their MILITARY STAR card will receive 10 cents off per gallon.

“With back-to-school season in full swing, the MILITARY STAR gas discount gives military shoppers another reason to see how the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange makes the grade,” said Sales & Merchandise Manager Holly Elliott. “The extra savings at the pump are just the beginning of the value shoppers will find at the Edwards Air Force Base Exchange.”

No matter the season, shoppers can reap the benefits of paying with their MILITARY STAR card. Besides the everyday discount of 5 cents per gallon on all gas purchases, cardholders enjoy a 10 percent discount on all Edwards Air Force Base Exchange food court purchases year-round.

For information about the features and benefits of the MILITARY STAR card, shoppers can visit www.shopmyexchange.com/ExchangeCredit.
