MILITARY ONLY...including Veterans!

The Exchange (AAFES) has Sony PlayStation VR The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim VR Bundle on sale for $249. Shipping is free.

https://www.shopmyexchange.com/so...le/8753338

This is the best price I've seen posted here for this bundle.

EDIT: They also have the Sony PlayStation VR DOOM VFR Bundle [shopmyexchange.com] for $199. Not the lowest I've seen here but not a bad price, either.

Related question... I see some of these AAFES deals being posted as "military only" (like this one), while others are posted as "military/vets" (a lot more were posted this way around Black Friday, IIRC).

Are all of these deals actually for "military/vets," but some just don't get posted that way?

Are are some of these AAFES deals really "military only," while others deals may be open to military *and* vets?

An example of the military/vets:

It's the same thing, military or vets, you just need either or to make an account and get verified on aafes site, recently they made it available to veterans

This is eligible for military and veterans that have registered. Some out there still aren't aware that veterans (non active duty, non reserves, non retirees) can now register and shop at AAFES.

Yep. Vets *are* military...just prior military. Same with Retirees, although Retiree status has much more benefits, as it should.

I've gone ahead and updated the OP to better reflect that, thanks. Hopefully it helps some out.

You shouldn't have to, but some people just really love to try to argue semantics just because it makes them feel good.
Veterans are prior military and, unless you royally farked up or your shit isn't on record, you will have access this.

To be fair, non retired vets have been left out of a lot. It was only within the last year or so that Lowes let regular vets get the military discount. Plus they're not great about explaining a lot of the minor benefits to people who don't retire.

As a vet, if I see "military discount" my assumption is that it's NOT for vets. Especially because many of these kinds of deals will ask for military ID, so I think it's fair to specify. Great that AAFES let's us shop there now!

Thanks for everyone's comments and help in clearing this up for me.

I usually keep an ear to the rail when I know friends are looking for things, and I passed along an AAFES deal I saw about six months ago to a veteran friend who really needed it, but he passed because he didn't realize he could buy from AAFES/SME now that he's out (8 years USMC, and then did a couple years contracting after that).

Same with my father-in-law, who left the Army's JAG Corps after 16 or 17 years in but didn't actually retire.

It'll be nice to be able to tell them, and actually know what I'm talking about... not just "I think" or "I'm pretty sure." Smilie

And apologies to the OP for side-tracking the discussion.

It's not about arguing semantics, though. Many "military" benefits out there are only valid for active duty/reserves/retirees, often requiring an ID. This means veterans who served, but did not retire, are ineligible for those particular offers/benefits. So when a deal pops up regarding AAFES (or anywhere else that may allow veterans to purchase), it's important to provide the correct info so everyone who is eligible can partake.

No apology necessary Smilie I think it's added value to the deal post, and the discussion as a whole.
