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.
