About the Card
The Military Star credit card program offers affordable and responsible credit solutions to the military community. The Army & Air Force Exchange Service operates the Military Star program on behalf of the military resale community. The Military Star Card is offered by the Exchange Credit Program.
The Military Star Card does not charge merchant fees to the military resale community, saving the exchanges more than $28 million in costly merchant and bank fees in 2020. Not charging merchant fees allows the Exchange to contribute additional funds to critical military Quality-of-Life programs, such as Child, Youth and School Services; Armed Forces Recreation Centers; and other programs to support troops and their families.
About the Exchange: Since 1895, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (Exchange) has gone where Soldiers, Airmen and their families go to improve the quality of their lives by providing valued goods and services at exclusive military pricing. The Exchange is the 56th-largest retailer in the United States. Its earnings provided $2.4 billion in dividends to support military morale, welfare and recreation programs over the last 10 years. The Exchange is a non-appropriated fund entity of the Department of Defense and is directed by a Board of Directors.
