Dallas -- With the busy, and expensive, holiday shopping season just around the corner, Army & Air Force Exchange Service gas stations worldwide are helping to make sure that the fill up doesn't empty the wallet.
In addition to the five cents a gallon discount that Military StarSM Card holders already enjoy every time they fuel up, steeper discounts are being offered three times before the New Year.
On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, military shoppers using their Military StarSM Card can take advantage of 11 cents off per gallon of fuel. From Nov. 30 - Dec. 4 as well as Dec. 28 - Jan. 1, the savings soar to 20 cents per gallon for those purchasing with their Military StarSM Card.
"These discounts couldn't come at a better time," said AAFES' Chief Operating Officer Mike Howard. "Because the Military StarSM Card is an exchange product, it provides unique opportunities to deliver unprecedented savings opportunities like these to authorized drivers."
The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is a joint command and is directed by a Board of Directors which is responsible to the Secretaries of the Army and the Air Force through the Service Chiefs of Staff. AAFES has the dual mission of providing authorized patrons with articles of merchandise and services and generating non-appropriated fund earnings as a supplemental source of funding for military Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs.
