Maximize military community support with MILITARY STAR

When Wright-Patterson Exchange shoppers use their MILITARY STAR card, the benefit goes far beyond their own wallets.

Cardholders earn rewards points and enjoy everyday discounts on food and fuel, but also help make the Wright Patterson community stronger. When shoppers use MILITARY STAR, the Wright Patterson BX avoids costly bank transaction fees – savings that totaled $141,927 in 2021.

Worldwide, using MILITARY STAR saved Exchanges more than $20 million last year. The savings increase Exchange earnings, 100% of which are re-invested in military communities through support of critical quality-of-life programs and capital improvements.

In the last 10 years, the Exchange has contributed $3.5 billion to military quality-of-life programs, which serve military members and their families.

“Using MILITARY STAR has a positive ripple effect,” said Shaw. “Just like shopping at the Exchange, it’s a way to save money and strengthen the Wright Patterson community at the same time.”

The MILITARY STAR card, available exclusively to service members, retirees, Veterans, military dependents and Department of Defense civilians, is accepted at all Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Navy Exchange Service Command, Marine Corps Exchange, Coast Guard Exchange and Defense Commissary Agency stores. Combined, these organizations saved $30.8 million in transaction fees with MILITARY STAR in 2021.
