MISAWA AB – Military shoppers can start the new year with savings, thanks to MILITARY STAR®.

From Jan. 12 through 26, Misawa shoppers who are approved for and use a new MILITARY STAR account will receive 15% off all purchases made on the first day instead of the regular 10% discount.

“MILITARY STAR can help the military community save and stick to their budgets with this special savings opportunity—in addition to the everyday deals and discounts that come with the card,” Misawa BX General Manager Michickia Carter. “Signing up for MILITARY STAR is a simple way to get greater value for your dollar.”

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 Army & Air Force Exchange Service fuel locations, 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.) All cardholders, regardless of credit score, receive the same low APR and no annual, late or over-limit fees. Active-duty military members are also eligible for additional benefits such as a 0%-interest Military Clothing plan for qualifying uniform basics and a reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments.

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 when shopping the Exchange online.

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
