AAFES purchases on-line for Vets

Military Exchange (PX, BX, NAVEX) shopping  benefits were traditionally limited to active duty, retired military and a few Federal Health officials.

Last year the Army/Air Force Exchange System (AAFES) expanded the eligibility, for on-line shopping only,  to include any US military veteran with an honorable discharge from the service.

These benefits include tax-free purchases and free shipping for most purchases over $49.99.

Signing up for these benefits is relatively easy.
