Exchange doubles gas savings Oct. 9-11 for MILITARY STAR® cardholders

Army & Air Force Exchange Service

DALLAS — To celebrate the launch of the MILITARY STAR® rewards program, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is pumping up gas savings by doubling the discount for MILITARY STAR® cardholders.
From Oct. 9 to Oct. 11, drivers fueling up with a MILITARY STAR® card at AAFES gas stations will receive 10 cents off per gallon instead of the everyday five-cents-per-gallon discount.
“The extra savings are a part of the Exchange’s launch of its new MILITARY STAR® rewards program,” said Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, the Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “The rewards program — and extra fuel discounts such as this one — help the Exchange give back to Soldiers, Airmen and their families.”
When drivers use their MILITARY STAR® card at the pump, they’ll earn points as part of the new rewards program, which launched Oct.1. Cardholders earn two points for every $1 spent in Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy exchange stores, and wherever else the MILITARY STAR® card is accepted. For every 2,000 points earned, shoppers will automatically receive a $20 Exchange rewards card.
Every day, shoppers can reap the benefits of paying with their MILITARY STAR® card. Besides the typical discount of five cents per gallon on all gas purchases, cardholders enjoy a 10 percent discount on all Exchange food court purchases year-round and free standard shipping at shopmyexchange.com.
For information about the features and benefits of the MILITARY STAR® card, shoppers can visit www.myecp.com.
