MISAWA AB – Smart shoppers can get savvy savings during the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s 12 Weeks of Black Friday Deals by signing up and using a new MILITARY STAR® card to receive 15% off all first-day purchases.

From Oct. 11 through Oct. 27, members of the Misawa community who are approved for and use a new MILITARY STAR account will receive the higher discount instead of the regular 10% discount.

The extra savings come amid the Exchange’s three-month holiday sales event, which offers the latest electronics, clothing, jewelry, sporting goods and more at Black Friday prices in-store and at New, military-exclusive deals and specials are being released every Friday through Nov. 23 at midnight Central time. Deals and sneak peeks will be posted at

In addition to the 15% off first-day purchases, MILITARY STAR offers exclusive cardholder savings, such as 5 cents off every gallon of gas at Gas Station, 10% off at participating Exchange restaurants and free shipping on online orders.

Cardholders also earn unlimited 2% rewards on all purchases at exchanges, commissaries and online. Rewards exclude Military Clothing line of credit.

“Misawa service members and families can stack the savings at the Exchange and enjoy multiple discounts,” said Misawa BX General Manager Michickia Carter. “Savings like the MILITARY STAR new cardholder discount and the 12 Weeks of Black Friday Deals help take the stress out of holiday shopping.”

The 15% discount applies to purchases made everywhere the MILITARY STAR card is accepted, including all exchanges, commissaries and online at, and Department of Defense civilians and retirees are eligible to apply for a card. All honorably discharged Veterans who have confirmed their eligibility to shop at can use their MILITARY STAR card discount shopping the Exchange online.

Other benefits of the MILITARY STAR card include:

  • One low APR for all cardholders, regardless of credit score.
  • No annual, late or over-limit fees.
  • 0%-interest Military Clothing plan for qualifying uniform basics.
  • Reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible customers.

The first-day discount is dependent upon the application being approved and will be applied as a credit on the first monthly billing statement. For more information, visit
