AAFES Delivers Valuable Learning Experience to Students Who “Make the Grade”

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is extending a host of straight “A” savings to military students who are demonstrating above-average academic achievement. As part of AAFES’ “You Made the Grade” effort, students who maintain a “B” average are eligible to receive a variety of complimentary exchange offers for every qualifying report card they bring home.

The current “You Made the Grade” booklet includes coupons for a free Burger King Hamburger Kids meal, complimentary admission for two to the nearest Reel Time movie theater and a free magazine from the local BookMark. In addition to money saving offers, the booklet also contains an entry form for a quarterly savings bond drawing in which three winners are randomly awarded savings bonds of $2,000, $3,000 or $5,000.

“‘You Made the Grade’ offers a practical learning experience for AAFES’ youngest shoppers,” said AAFES’ Commander Brig. Gen. Keith Thurgood. “The coupons and the sweepstakes are tangible examples of how it pays to be smart and work hard in school.”

To receive the AAFES “You Made the Grade” booklet, students simply present a valid military ID card and proof of an overall “B” or better average to their local BX/PX.

Students may receive one coupon package for every qualifying report card, but may enter the savings bond drawing only once per calendar quarter. Military families can contact their local AAFES Main Store Manager or General Manager for more information.
