Yokota Air Base – Spring is almost here, and savings are blooming at the Yokota BX. Airmen and military shoppers who open and use a new MILITARY STAR® account from March 11 to 25 will receive 15% off on all first-day purchases, instead of the regular 10%. The discount will appear as a credit on the first monthly billing statement.

Cardholders earn 2% in rewards points on their MILITARY STAR purchases—including at the commissary and Exchange mall vendors—and receive a $20 rewards card every 2,000 points. Rewards exclude Military Clothing.

Other benefits of the MILITARY STAR card include:

  • Free shipping on all and orders.
  • 5 cents off every gallon of fuel at Exchange fuel locations.
  • 10% off all Exchange restaurant purchases.
  • The lowest flat-rate APR (10.24%) among store cards—rate is offered to all cardholders upon account approval.
  • No annual, late or over-limit fees.
  • Reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible customers.

“It matters where you shop, and it matters what payment you use,” Yokota Exchange General Manager Julia Woods. “Shopping the Yokota BX puts money back into the community, and using the MILITARY STAR card helps shoppers save money too.”

100% of Exchange earnings are reinvested in the military community, including through funding for critical on-installation quality-of-life programs. When shoppers use the MILITARY STAR card, the Exchange also saves on transaction fees—savings that add up to millions of dollars a year—which allows the Exchange to better support Warfighters and their families.

New accountholders will receive the 15% discount on all first-day purchases at military exchanges and commissaries, as well as online at, and All honorably discharged Veterans who have confirmed their eligibility to shop at can use their MILITARY STAR card shopping the Exchange online. Veterans with a service-connected disability are eligible to shop in stores. For more information, Veterans can visit

The MILITARY STAR card is administered by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service and is accepted at all military exchanges and commissaries. For more information, visit
