MISAWA AB – For most shoppers, having their credit card bill paid in full would probably be the top of their holiday wish list, and MILITARY STAR® is making those wishes come true with its 8th annual Your Holiday Bill Is on Us sweepstakes.

Every time Misawa Exchange shoppers use their MILITARY STAR card from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31, they will automatically earn an entry into the sweepstakes. Five grand-prize winners worldwide will have their entire MILITARY STAR card balance paid in full through a statement credit. (Grand-prize 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 $1,000 statement credits and 25 third-place winners will receive $500 statement credits.

“MILITARY STAR serves the Misawa community every day, and the holidays are a special time to celebrate and thank our heroes,” said Misawa Exchange General Manager Michickia Carter. “Shopping for the holidays with MILITARY STAR could mean winning a big gift for yourself. The more you use your MILITARY STAR card, the more chances you have to win.”

MILITARY STAR has paid nearly $300,000 in holiday bills since the sweepstakes began in 2014.

Authorized shoppers can use their MILITARY STAR card at any military exchange, commissary,,,, Armed Forced Recreation Centers, Exchange mall vendor and more.

Honorably discharged Veterans who have verified their eligibility to shop the Exchange online are eligible to win, as well. Veterans can find more information on their online shopping benefit here.
