I’m all for any kind of app that offers savings. I really am digging that places we shop on base are getting with the times and offering savings that we can obtain through our phones and online. DECA as you know launched their Rewards Card app which allows you to access coupons to use on the card, as well as other commissary related info.

AAFES is now joining in with their release of the “Exchange Extra App”. The new app will PX shoppers to access quite a few features.

Personally I downloaded the app and deleted it right away as I am not sure of it’s purpose. It has what could be some really useful features but when you tap on them nothing pops up. There are quite a few ads for contest and recipes but nothing showing what’s new. Things that would be great would be including a mobile version of the AAFES flyer and even more coupons. However I’ve shared below what the app is SUPPOSED to do. One reader just pointed out this app has no privacy policy or terms of service so if that matters to you then you may not want to download until some updates are made.

“Once the app is downloaded, shoppers can scroll through for coupons and contest information. Touching the “Promotions” button brings up a list of special Exchange savings. The “BE FIT” button gives shoppers access to workouts and healthy recipes to keep them motivated to achieve their fitness goals.

 To access more digital content, including videos, product information and shopping lists, shoppers can touch the “Scan” button and hover over select images in Exchange specialty catalogs and on in-store signs. A colorful Extra label identifies what pages and signs are tied to digital content.

 For Valentine’s Day, Easter and other celebrations throughout the year, customers can tap the app for recipes and other specialized content to enhance their shopping experience.

 “This app brings a whole new dimension to connecting with the Exchange,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate, Exchange senior enlisted advisor. “With the Extra app, shoppers receive latest savings anywhere, any time on their smartphones.”   

To find the app, shoppers should search for “Exchange Extra” on the App Store or Google Play.
