Save time, money dining with Exchange on Salad Wednesdays

Army & Air Force Exchange Service

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is giving the military community an exclusive opportunity to save more while eating better on Salad Wednesdays.

Wright-Patterson Exchange shoppers, including Department of Defense civilians and retirees, can maintain a BE FIT lifestyle every Wednesday at Charley’s Philly Steaks and Burger King Exchange restaurants. Diners save $2 when purchasing any salad priced $4 or more. MILITARY STAR cardholders can stack the savings to receive an additional 10% off their salad purchase when using their card.

“Living the BE FIT way starts with a rock salad foundation,” said Wright-Patterson BX General Manager Adam Shaw. “Salad Wednesdays are another way the Exchange shows its commitment to nourishing Airmen and their families with better-for-you options.”
