Army & Air Force Exchange Service Corporate Communications
8/26/2008 - EIELSON AIR FORCE BASE, Alaska -- Army & Air Force Exchange Service gas stations at Eielson AFB are taking Airmen and their Families farther now that the pumps have been programmed to reflect a discount of three cents a gallon for drivers who pay with a MILITARY STAR Card.
"Anytime a customer uses a bank-issued debit or credit card, the retailer pays a portion of the transaction to a third-party financial institution," said the BX's General Manager Anna Vanhoveln. "Because the MILITARY STAR Card is administered by the Exchange Credit Program, AAFES is not subject to the additional fees incurred through other 'pay at the pump' options. As a result, we're able to pass savings on to authorized exchange shoppers."
The three-cent-a-gallon MILITARY STAR Card discount is currently being applied to transactions at the Eielson Car Care Center, Building 2219.
The MILITARY STAR Card is accepted at all AAFES, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Exchange activities, as well as the Exchange Catalog and the Exchange Online store at www.aafes.com.
Authorized exchange shoppers can learn more about the MILITARY STARSM Card by visiting the BX at 2518 Central Ave or logging on to www.aafes.com and clicking the MILITARY STAR Card icon.
