AAFES Rings in the New School Year with ‘You Made the Grade’

DALLAS -- The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is moving military students who excel in the classroom to the head of the class with its "You Made the Grade" program.

Now in its eighth year, the education rewards initiative recognizes students who maintain a "B" average or better with a booklet chock full of complimentary prizes for every qualifying report card.

AAFES' "You Made the Grade" booklet includes coupons for a variety of free offers such as admission for two to a Reel Time Theater, a Burger King Hamburger Kid's meal, a magazine of the student's choice and even a slice of pizza along with a medium drink. Each booklet also contains an entry form for a quarterly drawing in which three winners are randomly awarded savings bonds in $2,000, $3,000 or $5,000 denominations.

"'You Made the Grade' is a great vehicle for recognizing military students who excel, oftentimes through adversities that the average student does not face such as a deployed parent or frequent moves," said AAFES public affairs officer Maj. Edwina Walton.

To receive the AAFES "You Made the Grade" booklet, students must present a valid military ID card and proof of an overall "B" or better average to their local BX/PX. Students may receive one coupon package for every qualifying report card, but may enter the savings bond drawing only once per calendar year. Military families can contact their local AAFES main store manager or general manager for more information.
