MILITARY STAR increases Military Clothing Plan’s credit limit

The Military Clothing Plan is a special line of zero-interest credit for uniform purchases available to all active duty Soldiers, Airmen and Marines, as well as Guard and Reserve members. The limit increase, the first of its kind since 1979, will also extend the plan’s payment duration from eight to 12 months.

“Raising the Military Clothing Plan’s credit limit strengthens the MILITARY STAR card’s ability to help service members responsibly build credit while giving them greater flexibility to pay for their required uniforms,” said Wright-Patterson Exchange General Manager Jermaine Wilson. “The MILITARY STAR card offers this benefit as a service to the Services, reflecting the Exchange Credit Program’s commitment to ensuring the readiness and resiliency of Warfighters across the globe.”

Approximately 474,000 Soldiers, Airmen and Marines worldwide have a MILITARY STAR clothing line of credit. Purchases that qualify for the Military Clothing Plan include:

· Defense Logistics and Troop Support (DLAT)-procured issue military clothing items and footwear;

· DLAT organizational clothing and individual equipment items;

· The Army Green Service Uniform, which is procured directly by the Exchange;

· Exchange commercial uniform clothing, undergarments, insignia and footwear to be worn with the uniform.

Soldiers, Airmen and Marines qualify for the Military Clothing Plan. Sailors and Coast Guard members are offered a promotional 0% plan for uniform purchases under the MILITARY STAR card’s standard retail credit line.

The MILITARY STAR card is accepted at all military exchanges and commissaries. For more information, visit MyECP.com.

Exchange launching 12 weeks of savings for holiday shopping

Military shoppers looking to get a head start on holiday shopping while avoiding crowds can turn to the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s 12 Weeks of Savings.

From Sept. 4 through Nov. 25, shoppers will find Black Friday prices in-store and on ShopMyExchange.com on electronics, clothing, jewelry, sporting goods and more. New deals and specials will roll out each Friday for 12 weeks.

The 12 Weeks of Savings campaign moves up the traditional holiday shopping period, launching Sept. 4 and running through Black Friday weekend. Shoppers can enjoy weekly Black Friday prices in store and online without having to wait until November and can also avoid traditional holiday shopping crowds by taking advantage of buy online, pick up in store and curbside pickup contactless options.

“The Exchange understands this holiday shopping will look different during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Wilson. “Airmen and military shoppers expect the value the Exchange is known to provide as well as safe, secure, sanitized environments.”

Military shoppers can find these weekly deals by picking up the sales flier at their local Exchange or by visiting ShopMyExchange.com and clicking on Weekly Ad.

Veterans using their Exchange benefit can take advantage of 12 Weeks of Savings, too. The 2020 holiday shopping season will mark the first for in-person shopping for Veterans with service-connected disabilities.
