Money-saving online shopping for veterans

Are you an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force or Coast Guard? If so, you’re eligible to shop online and save money—for the rest of your life.

The Exchange, the Department of Defense’s (DoD) oldest and largest military retailer, wants all honorably discharged veterans to know they have this lifelong online military exchange shopping privilege. Those eligible also include honorably discharged veterans of the Air Force Reserve, Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve and National Guard.

Check your eligibility, then start saving with these exclusive budget-stretching benefits:

  • Tax-free shopping
  • Military-exclusive discounts and pricing
  • Military-only credit options
  • Free shipping on orders over $49 or any amount when you use the MILITARY STAR™ card 

Approved veterans can shop the online exchanges, including, with tax-free buying power that applies to everything from clothing to electronics–and more. 

The DoD announced this money-saving veterans benefit in January 2017 and it became effective on November 11, 2017. However, millions of veterans still don’t know they are eligible. (Note: This benefit can be used online with any of the military exchanges, but does not grant installation access.)

Low-cost life insurance for veterans

Many military veterans—active duty, transitioning, honorably discharged and retired veterans—don’t know they are eligible to apply for affordable life insurance from USBA.

This military life insurance protects your loved ones while you’re in the service and after you separate. Remember, your SGLI runs out 120 days after you leave the service.
