My pleasure Shannon. I was happily surprised to see the article. Sales tax in Jersey is near 7%, plus free shipping over $49. Sure beats a kick in the pants.

Vets can get tax-free online shopping for life

By Suzette Parmley STAFF WRITER
true

Louis Zayon served in the Navy, stationed in Norfolk, Va., from 1972 to 1976, before he was honorably discharged.
This Veterans Day, on Saturday, will offer him and about 18.5 million veterans worldwide and their families a little something special: tax-free online shopping for life with AAFES, an acronym for Army and Air Force Exchange Service — the primary shopping center at U.S. military installations.
Until now, only those on active duty, in the National Guard, the Reserves, retirees, and those who were 100 percent disabled could shop online with AAFES.
“It’s appreciated,” said Zayon, 62, who lives in Northeast Philly. “I won’t have to pay the 6 percent sales tax in Pennsylvania, and the additional 2 percent sales tax when I make a purchase within the city of Philadelphia. It saves money, and every little thing counts.”
There were about 900,000 veterans in Pennsylvania

and 393,000 in New Jersey who would be impacted by the change. Veterans can visit ShopMyExchange.com to verify eligibility and begin shopping tax-free online on Veterans Day.
Zayon is among 71,000 veterans in the Philadelphia area who are eligible for the tax-free online shopping benefit. His wife, Melissa, will also be eligible under his name.
“The prices are competitive with Amazon and other retail stores,”
