How to Benefit from a Military STAR Credit Card

Posted:

Many credit cards can be high-interest traps that cajole you with introductory offers, encourage you to spend beyond the credit limit, and leave you with compounding high interest balances. But one credit card earns a Military Star.

Because not all credit cards are without merit. When you are in the military, you have access to the most highly acclaimed option in credit cards.

The Military Star Card is a stellar credit card choice, issued by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES).

If you qualify, your Military Star Card offers you many credit advantages, all of which you in the military deserve. The Military Star Card has no annual fee, a low interest rate, and it offers a 25-day grace period before assessing a finance charge to your balances. It truly is a STAR among credit card choices.

WHERE CAN I USE MY MILITARY STAR CARD?

Your Military Star card is primarily designed to be used at base or post exchanges and AAFES-owned stores, such as Base Exchange (BX), Post Exchange (PX), Navy Exchange (NEX) and Marine Corps Exchange (MCX) stores. Military Star cards may also be used to purchase items from AAFES.com.

That means you get military credit at every Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Army Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and Navy exchange. Exchanges usually carry a wide range of products, from furniture to electronics and more. Purchasing items at a base or post exchange is an excellent way to buy on credit, and save money, as there is no sales tax on those purchases.

PURCHASE MILITARY CLOTHING ON MILITARY STAR CREDIT

Military clothing can be a budget-breaker. Getting the right uniform with patches and tailoring for a variety of military events can add up to hundreds of dollars per uniform. Your Military Star Card is accepted at on-base clothing shops, which are run as a part of the exchange. This can help spread the cost of uniforms over time, with low interest and no fees.

ONLINE EXCHANGE PURCHASES ARE EASY WITH YOUR MILITARY STAR

Your Military STAR Card can be used to make purchases from the online exchange located at shop.aafes.com, and serves all branches of active military. It's easy to register for online access, and then begin making purchases using your Military STAR Card.

USING MILITARY STAR REWARDS FOR OFF BASE PURCHASES

The Military Star Rewards MasterCard was introduced in 2008 and lets military families expand their purchasing power by using their Star cards off base, at any retailers who accept traditional MasterCards. Find out at your exchange about availability and eligibility of a Military Star Rewards Card and expand your purchasing power and low interest credit benefits on purchases off-base, too.
