FORT RUCKER, Ala. (June 5, 2014) -- Military students can turn good grades into rewards with the AAFES You Made the Grade program.
From first graders to high school seniors, pupils who maintain a B average or higher are eligible for the program that recognizes academic excellence.
The You Made the Grade program rewards military students with a coupon booklet filled with free offers and discounts, including a free regular six-inch Subway sandwich and a Burger King Tendergrill chicken sandwich. Those who make the grade will also score Snack Avenue coupons for a free 16-ounce drink, a complimentary hot dog and more.
Other offers include $5 off a $25 iTunes gift card, as well as discounts on clothing and shoes, among others. Students with a B average or better can also enter the You Made the Grade semiannual sweepstakes to receive gift cards worth $2,000, $1,500 or $500.
“The Fort Rucker Exchange is proud to reward military students who make it their mission to do well in school,” said Lorenzo Salgado, Fort Rucker Exchange general manager.
“Service members’ children face unique challenges inside and outside the classroom,” he said, noting MilitaryFamily.org reports that most military children will attend nine different schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. “The Fort Rucker Exchange recognizes these students’ challenges and they deserve to be rewarded.”
Students, including those who are home schooled, can receive a You Made the Grade coupon booklet by presenting a valid military ID and proof of an overall B average at the Fort Rucker Exchange at the main exchange customer service section. Eligible students can pick up one coupon booklet for each qualifying report card.
Entries for the gift card sweepstakes drawing can be submitted twice a year, with drawings typically held in June and December.
Students and guardians can visit the Fort Rucker Exchange for more information about the You Made the Grade program.
