Camp Zama – Camp Zama Soldiers and military shoppers looking to save at military exchanges and commissaries can receive an additional 15% savings when they open and use a new MILITARY STAR® account.

The discount applies to all purchases made the first day and is in place of the regular 10% discount for new cardholders. The savings will appear as a credit on the first monthly billing statement.

Cardholders earn 2% in rewards points on their MILITARY STAR purchases—including at commissaries—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 gas 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.

“Military shoppers are looking for ways to save,” said Camp Zama Exchange General Manager Eileen Al-Sayed. “MILITARY STAR helps shoppers not only with this limited-time discount, but with everyday savings on food, fuel and more.”

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

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
