“PCS’ing can mean a lot of upheaval for members of the military community,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange’s online PCS Headquarters helps make the move a little smoother by putting everything you need in one place.”

At PCS Headquarters, service members and their families can:

  • Shop for all they need to set up their new homes, including gadgets, bedding, kitchenware and more.
  • Find information on setting up TV, phone and internet.
  • Receive special savings on PODS storage.

The Exchange is also offering MILITARY STAR Operation PCS Benefit Cards to help with the expenses of moving. Service members who show their PCS orders at the Exchange customer service desk from June 1 to Aug. 8 can receive a card, which gives them savings of $10 on every $100 purchase made with MILITARY STAR at the Exchange. The PCS Benefit Card is valid for 90 days, including, and can be used again and again to save.
