    The Instructions to Appointees provides the following guidance: "Students should bring discretionary money of approximately $275 plus any anticipated travel funds. This will allow students to purchase items needed prior to the first payday on 1 August 2017. These will include miscellaneous items such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, ironing board, etc.".

    As Hodge indicated, this $275 could be cash or a credit/debit card.

    Thank you so much for this thread; it's super helpful. I had to cancel my credit and debit card 5 days before basic because I thought I lost it (found it in a parking lot). Had USAA send both to my P.O. Box. Just hoping that cadres will let me receive mail from USAA within the first week.
