APOD is a service provided exclusively for members of the defence community. By clicking continue, you are confirming that you are eligible to become an APOD member and that you, or a direct family member, are in some way connected to the Defence community.
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.
How it all started.
A few years ago, two Australian Defence Force wives whose husbands were deployed, found that amongst the myriad of discount
programs available, there was nothing exclusively for military personnel and their families. With the belief that serving
your country should have its rewards, they set out to change this for the Australian Defence community.
A year later, Australian Partners of Defence (APOD) was launched. Since then, APOD has grown into the largest Defence discount
program in Australia, with over 25,000 members and 10,000 discounts sourced in 6 years of operation.
Importantly, we’re not here to make money off members. In addition to being self funded, a portion of every membership fee
is donated to our partner charities Mates4Mates and Legacy to help support Defence families in need. Any profits made by
APOD are used to improve the program to provide greater benefit to our members.
‘ Our aim
was to provide a service to the Defence community which we saw was not provided anywhere else. ’
What is the APOD Difference?
Exclusive Discounts for the Australian Defence Force Community.
As the only discount membership program in Australia to be offered exclusively to the Defence community, our focus is on securing
deals that recognise the great contribution the Defence community has made to our country.
We have worked hard to negotiate hundreds of discounts on behalf of all members which we have listed in one easy to find location
on our site to save you the time and stress of having to haggle your own discounts every time.
