EVENTS >> 7-11-08

Free cash rewards

This summer, Air Force Clubs are partnering with Chase Bank to launch an enhanced cash-back, Military Free Cash Rewards Program. Additionally, new club membership applicants can choose between a MasterCard with the enhanced rewards program or a limited-use proprietary credit card without rewards. These new card options will be featured on new Air Force Club membership applications. “This is an exciting new opportunity,” said Aysha King, manager of Hangar 1080. “Airmen are excited to hear about the enhanced Free Cash Rewards Program. One of the first things that comes to mind is to use it to pay for everyday needs and earn rewards to offset increasing costs. To showcase the new benefits, Air Force Clubs is inviting all non-members to signup free with no dues payment for six months. Hangar 1080 will kick off the event at its monthly membership breakfast on Tuesday from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. The Military Free Cash Rewards Program offers members two points per dollar on card purchases made on base in Services activities, commissaries and the Base Exchange outlets. This includes all on base gasoline purchases beginning in July. Off-base card usage earns one point per dollar spent. Additionally, each new applicant has a chance to win from $5 to $100 instantly just for signing up. For more information on this club membership initiative, stop by Hangar 1080, call 987-5555, or call the Air Force Food and Beverage Division at 800-443-4834.
