Military Discount Guide

While there is no way to ever give our military service men and women the thanks they truly deserve, hundreds of retailers and service providers across the United States are doing their part to show their gratitude. These companies offer discounts to active, reserve, retired, and veteran members of the military and their families to show their appreciation.

These discounts can make life a bit easier for military members, veterans, and their families, not just on Veteran's Day and the Fourth of July but throughout the year, whether you want to take your family on a much-deserved vacation or you need new prescription eyeglasses.

In most cases, stores offer discounts for military members at the owner's discretion and these discounts are usually not advertised. It's important to call ahead and ask if they offer a military discount in your area and keep your military ID on you so you can get the recognition you deserve.
