MILITARY STAR Rewards Add Up for Minot AFB Shoppers
The MILITARY STAR® card sets Minot Air Force Base shoppers up for savings—and rewards.
Cardmembers earn unlimited 2% in rewards on purchases when they use MILITARY STAR. Every time shoppers reach 2,000 points, they automatically receive a $20 digital reward.

In 2022, shoppers worldwide earned $36 million in rewards, which can be used anywhere an Exchange gift card is accepted. The rewards program is part of the $435 million annual benefit MILITARY STAR provided to the military community worldwide through exclusive offers and benefits.
Other benefits of the card include:

  • 5 cents off every gallon of gas at Exchange fuel locations.
  • 10% off at participating Exchange restaurants.
  • 10% off all first-day purchases for new cardmembers.
  • Free shipping on all ShopMyExchange.com and MyNavyExchange.com orders.
  • The lowest flat-rate APR among store cards—rate is offered to all cardmembers upon account approval.
  • No annual, late or over-limit fees.
  • Reduced-interest deployment plan with no payments required for eligible cardmembers.
    “The MILITARY STAR rewards program allows Minot AFB shoppers to get more for their money,” said Minot BX General Manager Kyle Omler. “This is especially important at a time when many in the military community are looking to make their dollars go further.”
    Rewards are earned everywhere the card is accepted, including at commissaries and Armed Forces Recreation Centers, as well as all military exchanges, ShopMyExchange.com, MyNavyExchange.com and ShopCGX.com. Rewards exclude the Military Clothing Plan.
    Shoppers who use MILITARY STAR and shop the Minot AFB Exchange not only save but give back, as 100% of Exchange earnings are reinvested in the military communities it serves.
