DALLAS — Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers don’t have to be top-tier college athletes to have a shot at a slam dunk this spring.

From now until April 7, authorized shoppers can enter to win a $500 Exchange gift card as part of the NCAA March Madness 2016 Unilever Sweepstakes. Thirty lucky winners will be chosen by random drawing on or about April 11.

“We know many Soldiers, Airmen and Military family members are all fired up for this year’s bracket,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “That’s why we thought we’d add a little bit of excitement to the proceedings for our military shoppers. Our customers are heroes – why not offer them a little something extra to make March Madness all the more rewarding?”

Authorized shoppers 18 and older may enter at www.shopmyexchange.com/sweepstakes. No purchase is necessary.
