We’re big fans of The Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) and their deals, and not to mention their year-round free shipping and no sales tax. Although we’re not authorized to shop there, my retired ex-military Uncle almost exclusively shops at Shop My Exchange. And when it comes to Black Friday, you can really score some great finds.
Our AAFES Black Friday sale predictions for 2018:
While we don’t yet have the official details on what will be offered for 2018, we do expect to see some similar bargains as we saw last year. That includes specials on everything from TV’s to clothes. They typically run a different set of deals on Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and the Saturday afterwards (know as “Small Business Saturday”). We usually get their ads leaked in to us well in advance so you should have plenty of time to prepare for the bis sale.
You can scroll down the page to take a look at last year’s flyer to get an idea of what’s likely to come (be sure to follow the page links at the bottom of the page). As we always do, the moment the circulars are available we will post the full scan, sale start and end times, and everything else you’ll need to know right here on Blacker Friday.
Until then, be sure to checkout the pre-holiday sale happening now at shopmyexchange.com. Just remember that only active-duty military, reserve, National Guard, select U.S. civilian Department of Defense/State employees, and their retirees will be able to shop at AAFES. If you’re a new customer to their Exchange Online Mall, then they will need to validate your eligibility through the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS). You’ll only need to do it once, then you’ll be all setup and ready to go.
