AFA Members Eligible to Save Up to 40 Percent and More on Premium Brands, from Outdoor and Action Sports Equipment and On-Duty Tactical Gear, to Jewelry and Apparel for the Family
April 2, 2012
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Air Force Association and the AFA Veteran Benefits Association are committed to the education, advocacy and support of the total Air Force family and to honor Airmen and our Air Force Heritage. As part of this commitment, AFAVBA offers privileged member benefits, now including private access to GovX.com. The controlled access ecommerce site is the first and only online shopping destination dedicated to providing military and government personnel and their families with the opportunity to purchase premium lifestyle products, as well as on-duty tactical gear, directly from manufacturers at prices well below retail.
“As a membership-based association, we are committed to seeking out opportunities that best serve the needs of the many men and women who support us,” said Mike Dunn, President and CEO of AFA. “Our involvement with GovX.com helps illustrate that commitment as it provides our membership with this new service that allows them to purchase the very best products at a great price.”
GovX.com offers premium brands and products, such as action sports and outdoor equipment, apparel, on-duty tactical gear, electronics, jewelry, shoes and accessories, home décor and much more, all with substantial savings of 40 percent and more. GovX.com is accessible only to military and other government-qualified members, not the general public. AFAVBA members will receive automatic activation to access GovX.com by visiting www.GovX.com/afa . From there, members can activate their free GovX account and begin shopping on GovX.com for everyday premium brands and products, not closeouts or discontinued items.
GovX.com carefully selects manufacturer-partners that deliver high quality and unique products that members will enjoy. SPY, Callaway, Alpinestars, OluKai, London Bridge Trading Company and Sector 9 are among the nearly 50 premium brands that GovX.com has partnered with to provide privileged savings to AFAVBA members. The GovX.com member verification process ensures that brand partners are able to offer special discounts not otherwise viewable or accessible to the general public.
Built to thank and honor those who serve, GovX.com donates a portion of its proceeds from purchases made by AFAVBA members back to the association in further support of the Air Force family.
“GovX.com is designed to give back and help Air Force Association families by giving them a privileged shopping benefit, allowing them to purchase a broad range of popular, specially selected premium merchandise, conveniently and at significant savings,” said Anthony Farwell, president and a founder of GovX, Inc. “We work closely with our manufacturer-partners who believe in this privileged service and deliver their products directly to our members.”
AFA is led by volunteer leaders at the national, state and local levels, representing more than 230 chapters throughout the country. Every AFAVBA member has access to GovX.com military discounts through www.afavba.org or by visiting www.GovX.com/afa.
