By AAFES release on December 9, 2009

DALLAS - Prices inside BXs and PXs will be dropping faster than the temperature outdoors this December as "early bird" shoppers will be rewarded with a flurry of discounts during two limited special events from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

"For just two hours on Sat., Dec. 19 and Thurs., Dec. 24, exchanges will offer exclusive ‘early bird' discounts," said the Army & Air Force Exchange Service's Senior Enlisted Advisor CMSgt. Jeffry Helm. "These reduced prices will, of course, be in addition to the exceptional value exchanges offer every day." 

Specials during the two-hour event scheduled for the 19th will include 75 percent off all Foster Grant sunglasses, 50 percent of all Goody Hair Accessories as well as a variety of furniture discounts ranging from $50 to $250.

Shoppers who wait until the day before Christmas to finish marking everyone off their lists will be rewarded the morning of the 24th with offers ranging from 40 percent off Oshkosh brand children's clothing to 25 percent off all in-stock IPod accessories and Bluetooth headsets.

BXs and PXs will distribute two pages of coupons for each "early bird" event beginning Dec. 12 and Dec. 17. Discounts reflected on the handouts provided from the 12th on will be honored from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Sat., Dec. 19 while coupons passed after the 17th will be accepted Thurs., Dec. 24.
