I never saw this coming, might be a big win for online big ticket items. (no sales tax)

Honorably discharged veterans could be able to shop online at military exchange websites as early as Veterans Day, barring any objections from Congress.
The change in Defense Department policy would open up online exchange shopping privileges to about 18 million more people. It won't apply to shopping at brick-and-mortar exchange stores.

Ive had my log in for a month now, been price comparing them. Some things are less, some are not. Suppose its like anything else. I haven't placed an order yet, Prime still wins.

10 years in and I rarely ever shop from there. The prices are higher than wal mart/Target/most anywhere else, why anyone goes there, I don't know.

Yeah, I didn't really shop there when I live on a base. I'm not going out of my way to do it now. My Grandparents on the other hand only shop at a commissary and MCX/NEX/PX/BX

I swear the old people do it just so they have something to do. It's the big adventure for the day for them. Getting in the way, leaving the cart smack dab in the middle of the isle, and aimlessly wandering around.

tobacco and alcohol were less expensive for years but it seems like even that has lost it's competitive advantage at the exchange.

Can you buy Alcohol on base without a valid active military or retiree ID? I’m a vet and last time I was told you needed either of the above to buy alcohol at the class 6?

I swear Haole had posted this earlier also:confused:

They travel a lot so they stay at RV parks on the bases wear they go, my Grandpas favorites are PI and San Diego so he can watch the recruits graduate. I guess thats what you get when you were on the Drill Field for 8 years.

It's a good deal on some items. I generally only buy electronics and computers. Traditionally, the exchange isn't as cheap as local stores. Free shipping on orders over $49.
