Why our members love us


“I absolutely love my APOD membership. A fantasticly extensive range of discounts for the Defence community and some wonderful, exclusive competitions available to members. I recently was lucky enough to win a double pass to Color Run through APOD which gave my sister and I a wonderful day together.”

Emilia B Ex RAAFPerth


“APOD, not only offers the 'Best' discount site but it also recognises the sacrifice made by our veterans and their families.”

David C ArmySydney


“Our family recently needed new tyres for the car. I managed to shop around and negotiate the best price which I was pretty pleased with. I then remembered I could use my APOD membership and saved a further $70. This more than re-payed for my membership. Thanks APOD for such a great program, and for putting money back into our families pocket!!”
