Mil Exchange online shopping opening to vets

Post by randy » Sat Jun 24, 2017 8:02 pm

From a VFW e-mail: https://www.vfw.org/actioncorpsweekly#OnlineExchange
Online Exchange Shopping Eligibility to Expand: Beginning Veterans Day 2017, almost 13 million honorably discharged veterans will be permitted to shop online at all four military exchanges, but you have to first register with VetVerify.org, which will use Defense Manpower Data Center records to verify eligibility. On Veterans Day, eligible veterans will be able to shop online by logging on to the Army and Air Force Exchange Service, Navy Exchange, Marine Corps Exchange, and Coast Guard Exchange websites at, respectively, shopmyexchange.com, mynavyexchange.com, mymcx.com and shopcgx.com. Military exchange shopping is tax-free, plus your patronage helps to return more than $300 million annually to support on-base morale, welfare and recreation programs. Verify your eligibility. https://www.vetverify.org/
Thought this would be interesting for those of us that didn't retire. If nothing else will make a nice comparison against other sources.

Thanks Randy.

Know some people who did their hitch and got out, this might be a good thing for some of them (especially those hard-headed SOBs that won't go to the VA about a service-connected disability).

Thank you!!!!

And if anyone tries the verify program, and it doesn't work, try it again on Monday, when there are humans involved. If that doesn't work let me know.

Went ahead and tried registering. Just waiting on verification now.

I'll probably register. This may well turn out to be a valuable source of price comparisons, if nothing else. Thanks for posting this, Randy.
