Hill Air Force Base — According to a recent National Retail Federation survey, gift cards will be the most requested gift this year with 62 percent preferring a gift card over any other item. For Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, their gift card of choice is the one that can be redeemed at military exchanges from Okinawa to Oklahoma.
The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is making it easy for any American to send their support with an Exchange gift card that service members can use for electronics, snacks or a good book.
“An Exchange gift card empowers troops to choose items that make their lives easier wherever they are called to serve,” said the Hill AFB Exchange’s Mark Downs. “The needs of an Airman here at Hill AFB are different from the Airman in Afghanistan. An Exchange gift card allows service members to get exactly what they need to make the holidays brighter.”
While only authorized military shoppers can redeem Exchange gift cards, anyone can send one by simply calling 800-527-2345 or logging on to www.shopmyexchange.com and clicking “Purchase Gift and Phone Cards” at the bottom of the page.
From there, Exchange gift cards, ranging in values from $10 to $500, can be addressed to a specific Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Marine or sent to “any service member” through the Fisher House Foundation, Air Force Aid Society, Warrior and Family Support Center or Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. The gift cards can be redeemed at Exchanges in all 50 states and more than 30 countries.
