Camp Foster, Okinawa – Camp Foster Main Store Marines and military shoppers can start the new year with extra savings. Shoppers who sign up and use a new MILITARY STAR® account Jan. 15 through 28 will save 15% on first-day purchases instead of the 10% discount regularly offered. The discount will appear as a credit on the first monthly billing statement.

“As many military families are looking to stick to their new year budgets, the extra MILITARY STAR savings help shoppers get the best value for their dollar,” said Camp Foster Main Store Sales Area Manager Coley Soderlund. “The MILITARY STAR card is one more way the Exchange helps the Camp Foster community save.”

Cardholders earn 2% in rewards points on their MILITARY STAR purchases—including at the commissary and Exchange mall vendors—and receive a $20 rewards card every 2,000 points

Other benefits of the MILITARY STAR card include:

  • Free shipping on all and orders.
  • 5 cents off every gallon of fuel at Exchange fuel locations.
  • 10% off all Exchange restaurant purchases.
  • The lowest flat-rate APR (10.24%) among store cards—rate is offered to all cardholders upon account approval.

  • Reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible customers.

New accountholders will receive the 15% discount on all first-day purchases at military exchanges and commissaries, as well as online at, and

“All Exchange earnings go back to the community,” Soderlund said. “So when Marines, Veterans, retirees and families shop the Exchange, they’re not only saving on everyday purchases, they’re also giving back.”
