KMC Exchange and commissary shoppers can get more bang for their buck by opening a new MILITARY STAR® card account.
From Oct. 10 to 24, service members and their families who apply and are approved for a new MILITARY STAR card will save 15 percent on all first-day purchases instead of the 10 percent discount regularly offered. The discount will appear as a credit on the first monthly billing statement.
“The MILITARY STAR card is a benefit the military community has earned,” said KMCC Store Manager, Sandra Reed. “The cardholder-friendly terms and everyday discounts help save money year-round.”
New MILITARY STAR accountholders will receive the discount on purchases at all military exchanges and commissaries.
Cardholders receive two points for every dollar spent with MILITARY STAR and automatically earn a 20 dollar rewards card every 2,000 points. In 2018, shoppers earned 34.6 million dollars in MILITARY STAR rewards cards.
Other benefits of the MILITARY STAR card include:
- The lowest flat-rate APR (11.99 percent) among store cards-rate is offered to all cardholders upon account approval.
- No annual, late or over-limit fees.
- Reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible customers.
The MILITARY STAR program generated 471 million dollars in value for cardholders in 2018 through savings, discounts, financing offers and cardholder-friendly terms and conditions.
The MILITARY STAR card is administered by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and is accepted at all military exchanges and commissaries.
