NOVEMBER 10, 2020 – The Exchange Credit Program is making the holidays brighter for military shoppers by picking up the tab on their MILITARY STAR® cards with the seventh annual Your Holiday Bill Is On Us sweepstakes.
Through Dec. 31, shoppers will be automatically entered into the sweepstakes every time they use their MILITARY STAR card. Five grand-prize winners will have their entire MILITARY STAR card balance paid in full up to $8,200. Ten additional shoppers will win $1,000 statement credits, and 25 more will receive $500 statement credits.
Winners whose balances do not meet the minimum prize of $2,500 will receive a statement credit for the difference.
“The Exchange Credit Program wants to show our appreciation for our heroes during the holidays and every day,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s senior enlisted advisor. “One purchase with a MILITARY STAR card could go a long way toward paying your holiday gifts this year.”
Authorized shoppers will be entered into the sweepstakes every time they use their MILITARY STAR card at any military exchange, commissary, ShopMyExchange.com, myNavyExchange.com, ShopCGX.com, Armed Forced Recreation Centers or Exchange mall vendor.
Honorably discharged Veterans who have verified their eligibility to shop the Exchange online are eligible to win, too. Veterans can find out more on the Exchange’s community Hub page at https://bit.ly/Vets4Life. Veterans with service-connected disabilities can participate, too, as they mark their first holiday shopping season with in-store privileges.
MILITARY STAR has paid nearly $250,000 in holiday bills since 2014. The Army & Air Force Exchange Service administers the MILITARY STAR card.
Winners will be announced through a drawing on or about Jan. 30. No purchase is necessary to win. For rules and an alternate method of entry, visit MyECP.com/CustomerAds/Page/Exchange.
