"We wanted to recognize and reward those who serve our country by helping them make their money worth more, especially given the difficult economic conditions," said Julie Loeger, senior vice president of brand and product management at Discover Financial Services. "With this program, military families will be able to stretch their dollars on necessities that matter most right now, like gas and groceries."
The program will include more than 175 military bases nationwide, many more bases overseas, and includes everyday purchases like gas, groceries, lodging, telecommunications and other categories of merchants found on-base. Cardmembers can learn more at Discover.com/military.
