military star cardsArmy & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

To better serve military families, the Exchange Credit Program’s MILITARY STAR® card will soon offer an updated rewards program along with a new look and enhanced card security features.

Launching in October, all MILITARY STAR® cardholders will earn 2 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.

The updated MILITARY STAR® card, which will arrive in cardholders’ mailboxes in mid-September, will have enhanced features to protect service members and their families from becoming victims of fraud. A security code on the back will provide extra protection when shopping online. The card will also include expiration and “member since” dates on the front.

The new MILITARY STAR® card reflects a patriotic look that includes an image of the Statue of Liberty and branch of service seal, something customers voiced as important in focus groups.

Though its look is changing, the MILITARY STAR® card’s benefits will continue, including:

*             Competitive interest rate of 10.24 percent—an industry-leading interest rate.

*             No annual, late or over-limit fees.

*             10 percent off first-day purchases.

*             10 percent off Exchange food court purchases.

*             5-cents-per-gallon savings at Exchange gas stations.

*             Free standard shipping at

In addition to advantages for customers, the entire military community benefits when shoppers use a MILITARY STAR® card.
