    Military Star CARd is a joke. DO NOT GET THIS CARD….. GET ANY CARD BUT THIS ONE!!!!!!!! This is the biggest rip off you will ever sign up for. The interest rate is horrible and only goes up constantly. Somehow I went from only purchasing 3500 in actual buys but now with interest am paying 4,454.78. I haven’t purchased anything in. Months and the interest is constantly doubling itself. Don’t get me started on how my payments went from $ 60 per month to $109 and now $249 a month. Don’t get me started on the magnitude of hoops you have to walk through to cancel the card and even after cancelling somehow my balance goes up instead of down no matter how much I pay monthly. Biggest mistake of my life. I absolutely regret getting this card. Plus AFFES actually charge way over what you can get for prices online or elsewhere. Even the commissary is questionable. There are some deals sometime but mostly it’s a huge sham. Also it is a “Federal CARd”. So you have ZERO protection against garnishment…. if you are a veteran on disability you will be garnished if you don’t pay on time. This is the worst misappropriation of money out of America’s military who already don’t get paid enough. It’s disgusting. My acct is closed and I can’t wait to pay this bullshit off.
