Meet APOD

An exclusive membership program saving defence and veteran families time and money for over 7 years.

APOD stands for Australian Partners of Defence - it is who we are, who we do business with and who we do it for, represented in the tri-service colours on our logo.

Run by veteran families, for veteran families.

APOD is an Australian owned and operated organisation founded by veteran families, for veteran families.

Since 2012, we have been working with businesses of all sizes to deliver exclusive offers to serving Australian Defence Force personnel, reservists, allied forces, veterans and their immediate family members.

We understand the sacrifices made in the name of service and have been committed for over 7 years to creating the bridge between businesses and the Australian defence community for those organisations that want to say thank you for your service.

APOD’s mission is to make providing benefits and recognition to our members simple and rewarding for businesses and to provide our members with easy access to local and national discount offers across all industries, not just travel and leisure.

Recognising those who serve.

APOD exists to recognise those who serve. We understand that when one person serves, their whole family serves.

If you are a current or former defence member, reservist, veteran, allied military personnel or an immediate family member, we recognise the unique nature of your sacrifice in service to your country and welcome you to join APOD, which was created exclusively for you.

Partnered with Department of Veterans’ Affairs

In partnership with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA), we are now able to extend membership access to all Veteran Cardholders, through a DVA subscription to APOD.

This means that you receive free access to thousands of offers through the APOD program whilst DVA continues to provide this benefit to all Veteran Cardholders.

Enjoy all of the benefits of being an APOD member, including savings on everyday shopping, accommodation, experiences, gift cards and special offers.

Two easy ways for Veteran Cardholders to sign up:

1. New DVA Cardholders can sign up through MyService. Simply tick the box to subscribe to APOD when applying for your new Veteran Card. You’ll get an email from us with instructions to verify your email address and create a password so you can log in to the APOD website.

2. Existing DVA Cardholders can sign up through the APOD website. You will need to have your Veteran Card ready to provide your DVA File Number and name exactly as it appears on your card to automatically authenticate your free APOD access.

Becoming a member is easy.

APOD gives you access to discounts that are exclusively for you. Join in minutes, it’s easy!

Your APOD membership comes with some great features, like our digital store cards that are valid at over 50 participating national retailers, our virtual membership card and our new mobile website, which pinpoints all of the participating retailers in your area so that you get the maximum value from your APOD membership.

Searching for and using offers couldn’t be easier. Simply search online at APOD.com.au or via our mobile app. And the best part is that you can use the discounts again and again, to add up to real savings!
