The Military Star Card is an “all services” card issued by the Army and Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) and is accepted at all service exchanges as well as catalog and online purchases. The Military Start Card provides many of the same benefits of a traditional credit card. It boasts no annual fee, a low interest rate and a 25-day grace period before being charged a finance charge. Those interested in applying for a Military Star card can do so online or by visiting the customer service area of a military exchange store such as AAFES. Qualified applicants include active duty, retired or reserve members, and employees of the Federal Department of Defense working on installations outside the US, as well as Veterans with 100 percent disability. Officials of the State Department working outside the United States also qualify along with dependents of any of these categories.To access Military Star Card customer service, phone numbers and support information, card holders can visit the Military Exchange website at http://www.milexch.com/.
