There is a brand new benefit starting up for all, yes, ALL, honorable discharged veterans. Starting November 11, 2017, they will all be eligible to shop online at military exchanges.
One huge benefit of this is that it is essentially tax-free shopping.
If they can offer free shipping and store-pickup, it could be a way to compete with amazon, and help our vets with a small, but generous perk.
However, you should also know that this is only online. If you are not now eligible to shop in person, you still cannot do that.
You can probably immediately verify your eligibility online at https://www.vetverify.org/ If you are a rather recent armed forces member, you might not be in that system yet.
There are four online exchanges you will be able to shop at:
We hope this little benefit will be useful and helpful to our veterans and their families.
