Yokota Air Base – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is helping first-time MILITARY STAR® cardholders at Yokota save a little extra on their back-to-school bill this year.

From Aug. 13 to 27, MILITARY STAR card shoppers will receive 15% off all their first-day’s purchases instead of the typical 10% discount. The 15% discount will appear as a credit on the first monthly billing statement.

“Signing up for a new MILITARY STAR account is already a great way to save money—even more so during this back-to-school season,” said Yokota Exchange General Manager Julia Woods. “We hope offering this extra discount will show shoppers just how much the MILITARY STAR card can help their family save.”

All MILITARY STAR customers are automatically enrolled in the MILITARY STAR Rewards Program. They are eligible to earn 2% back in rewards points on qualifying purchases at all military exchanges, DeCA and other participating locations. After every 2,000 points, customers receive a $20 rewards card.
