DALLAS – Military shoppers can enter to win a popular prize provided by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service in the retailer’s Free Friday giveaway program.

Authorized military shoppers who comment on the Exchange’s Free Friday Facebook post each Friday at Facebook.com/shopmyexchange have a chance to win trending products including cookware, cutlery, furniture and more.

“Service members and their families sacrifice so much day in and out to serve our country,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “The Exchange looks forward to giving away more popular products this year.”

The Free Friday program received more than 34,000 entries from shoppers in 2022, giving away more than $80,000 in prizes to the military community since 2017. Free Friday winners took home more than $14,800 in prizes last year including air fryers, gardening packages, cookware, bedding and more.

Authorized shoppers 18 and older, including honorably discharged and disabled Veterans, and Department of Defense and Coast Guard civilians and retirees are eligible to enter. Comments made on a Free Friday Facebook post by 11:59 p.m. Central on the day of the post will be entered into the weekly drawing.

In Hawaii, authorized patrons have four Exchanges they can shop at:

  • Hickam
  • Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe (not an AAFES facility)
  • Navy Exchange (not an AAFES facility)
  • Schofield Barracks
