DALLAS – Military shoppers should place their ShopMyExchange.com orders early to ensure arrival in time for the holidays.

Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians, retirees, military families, Veterans, Department of Defense civilians and other authorized Army & Air Force Exchange Service shoppers have through Dec. 16 for regular ground shipments through the U.S. Postal Service to be delivered to continental U.S. addresses by Dec. 25.

Military shoppers making last-minute purchases can choose two-day shipping from FedEx through Dec. 21 or overnight shipping through Dec. 22.
