Navy Exchange Service Command’s (NEXCOM) Navy Lodge Program boasts 39 facilities worldwide. Their mission is to provide military guests on permanent change of station (PCS) orders with a necessary quality-of-life benefit. In line with that mission, the Navy Lodge Program is offering families a chance to save on their stay. This year marks the 11th year in a row that the Navy Lodge Program will provide PCS guests with a PCS discount scratch-off card.

Moving creates additional costs on military families, so the scratch-off card promotion puts money back in the pockets of those service members, especially during the Navy’s peak PCS season. The scratch-off card can be used at any Navy Lodge throughout the member’s PCS move.

Navy Lodge family suites offer guests oversized rooms with living and dining areas, fully equipped kitchen, updated rooms with free Wi-Fi, breakfast, and a weekly manager’s reception. Many locations also feature guest laundry facilities, children’s outside play area, and workout room. Also, since military families include those furry loved ones, dogs up to 70 pounds and cats can stay at many Navy Lodges when traveling with their owner.

Navy Lodge scratch-off cards are available on base at the personnel support detachment, housing office, household goods and personal property office, as well as the local NEX Customer Service desk. As an added convenience, guests can call 800-628-9466 to have a card mailed to them. The scratch-off card is redeemable for a stay up to 20 days and at any Navy Lodge within the continental United States.
