MISAWA AIR FORCE BASE – MILITARY STAR® is making sure the holiday season is extra merry and bright for 40 lucky military shoppers.

From Nov. 1 to Dec. 31, every time Misawa shoppers use their MILITARY STAR cards to make purchases, they will automatically receive an entry into the worldwide fifth annual Your Holiday Bill Is On Us! Sweepstakes. Five grand-prize winners will have their MILITARY STAR card balances paid in full. (Winners whose balances do not meet the minimum prize of $2,500 will receive a statement credit for the difference.) Ten second-place winners will receive statement credits of $1,000, while 25 third-place winners will receive statement credits of $500.

“It’s a real treat for the Exchange to get to reward deserving military members and their families,” said General Manager Kristine Cowley. “We want to show our appreciation for our heroes during the holidays and every day, and we’re hoping a Misawa Air Force Base Airmen will be among the 40 winners.”

Each transaction counts as one entry with no limit on the number of entries. Shoppers have a chance to enter everywhere MILITARY STAR is accepted, including Army & Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard exchanges;;;; Exchange concessionaires and commissaries. Winners will be announced on or about Jan. 30. No purchase necessary to win. For official rules and alternate method of entry, visit

Last year’s grand-prize winners included a retired Navy Chief Petty Officer whose prize paid off an $8,100 MILITARY STAR balance that had been used for family expenses during the holidays and an Army First Lieutenant whose winning purchase was made at the commissary and paid off a $5,200 bill.

MILITARY STAR is administered by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service. Other benefits of the card include:

• Two rewards points per dollar on purchases and a $20 rewards card after 2,000 points earned.
• The lowest flat-rate APR (12.24 percent) among store cards—rate is offered to all cardholders.
• No annual, late or over-limit fees.
• 10 percent discount on first day’s purchases for new MILITARY STAR accounts.
• Reduced interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible customers.
