Effective Veterans Day, Nov. 11, honorably discharged veterans of all branches of the United States Armed Forces are welcome to shop online at the Post Exchange. In the past, the physical and online Post and Base Exchanges were only accessible to active duty military and select categories of veterans. The Exchanges are a volume buyer, so goods are sold at very competitive prices.
This online shopping benefit for veterans is tax-free shopping and includes free standard shipping to United States zip codes for any purchase over $49. This shopping benefit also brings access to the exclusive military credit and financing options with the Military Star Card.
Get started by verifying your eligibility at: https://www.shopmyexchange.com/veterans. The website includes additional information about the program, frequently asked questions, and eligibility. It also provides instructions in case your record wasn’t found in the database.
“My Marine Corps veteran cousin volunteered to check this out for me back in June,” said retired Army Colonel Junker. “His eligibility came through in two days and they put him in the ‘test’ group. He had no issues shopping immediately, and continues to enjoy the selection of hunting and fishing gear.”
