Introducing the Military STAR Card

Marine Corps Exchange encourages and promotes the responsible use of credit and building credit wisely. The Military Star Card is tailored to active duty, reserve, retired-service members and their family's credit needs. At forward deployed locations it has proven to be invaluable to military members in making purchases at the tactical field exchanges and temporary exchange facilities, because of the acceptance and controls. That's why there is no other credit source available to service members and their families today that can provide the level of support that the Military Star Card provides. To learn more, visit their website or chat online with a sales representative today.

Tobacco Policy Update

Tobacco Policy Update

Effective on 1 August 2020, the minimum age to purchase tobacco products and for the sale or furnishing of tobacco products, including electronic smoking devices, smokeless tobacco, cigars, and cigarettes changes from 18 to 21 years of age. It is unlawful for any retailer to sell tobacco products, including cigarettes, cigars, and e-cigarettes, to any person younger than 21 years of age in our CONUS locations and Hawaii. This applies to retail outlets on DoD installations and facilities within the United States and its territories and possessions, and on U.S. Naval vessels at a U.S. port.

When selling tobacco products, all MCCS locations must check a patron’s identification if his or her age is not known to be over 18, and if the patron appears to be under 30 years of age. All MCCS locations must implement this policy in support of federal law, and prepare associates to comply with the revised minimum age requirement.
