Exchange gift cards personalize care packages for every member of the family

DALLAS, Texas — According to a recent National Retail Federation survey, six in 10 shoppers polled said they’d like to receive gift cards this holiday season, the most in the survey’s history. Whether in Afghanistan or Alaska, servicemembers also appreciate the value of a gift card during the holidays. Fortunately, Americans wishing to send support always hit the mark when sending an Army & Air Force Exchange Service gift card.

“By sending an Exchange gift card, troops are empowered to choose items that make their life easier wherever they are called to serve,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “Whether it’s tacos, televisions or even just a tank of gas, Exchange gift cards personalize troop support.”

While only authorized military shoppers can redeem Exchange gift cards, any American can send one by simply calling 800-527-2345 or logging on to www.shopmyexchange.com and clicking “Support Your Troops” and then the “Gift and Calling Cards” icon.

From there, Exchange gift cards, ranging in values from $10 to $500, can be addressed to a specific Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Marine or sent to “any service member” through the Fisher House Foundation, Air Force Aid Society, Warrior and Family Support Center or Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
