One of the worst parts of leaving the military is the loss of benefits and perks you receive as a result of service. If you haven’t fully retired perks, like the commissary and PX in addition to the major ones like free healthcare go away.

Luckily there is a bright lining because honorably discharged vets can now shop at AAFES aka the PX utilizing a new lifetime benefit extended to them by the DOD on Nov 11, 2017. This benefit is open to Vets from all branches. And with the holidays around the corner there is no better timing.

Perks of shopping online include:

  • No Tax
  • Profits benefit currently serving Military
  • Worldwide Shopping
  • Shop online anytime
  • Exclusive Military Pricing

Unfortunately this benefit does not extend to brick and mortar PX’s. Read why here.

Either way this is a great perk considering there are so many deals on there on basics like diapers and household goods.
