Veterans and Exchange Usage

US Veterans Exchange usage will soon be available. You need to verify first though. Here is the site for all U. S. Veterans

Just prepare to be underwhelmed, by the pricing. If the item costs enough, you will save the tax and that is about it. Amazon is still cheaper in many cases.

It's a nice benefit. I've actually had access for several months now. I had done the Vet-Verify in the late spring when they put it up and a couple weeks later they emailed me and gave me early access as a pilot program.

As Madmaxmutt said, the regular prices are more than I expected. However, we bought quite a few items that were on sale/clearance and the prices were very good. significantly cheaper than Amazon for lots of them and I checked.

They also tend to run clearance and special sales all the time, so there are good deals to be had.

Has anyone verified thus is a reliable website? They are requesting a lot of Info that I would not want to get in the wrong hands.

I have no idea why aafes changed their website, but www.aafes.com goes directly to shopmyexchange.com

It really depends on the product. And the promotion.

For example, on shopmyexchange.com, today and tomorrow, they are giving an extra 30% off on most clearance prices. Some .22LR ammo, normally 8.99 for 100, is clearanced for 4.97. 30% off makes it less than $3.50 or less than 3.5 cents per round!

Vets should ignore the negativity and check it out. They will find some really good deals. This is a spectacular benefit.

Full disclosure: I sell guns for the Exchange.

I can. I work for AAFES. The Vet Verify site has to make sure that only Vets get through.

They are getting away from the AAFES brand name. It is still technically their ďcorporateĒ name, but the stores are now known by the simpler and more identifiable ďExchangeĒ. Iíd bet that exchange.com was already taken.

The Exchange sent me an email with the link. I was already verified a long time ago.
When AAFES and NAVEX combined they did the renaming if I recall correctly.

The Navy Exchange is a separate entity.
