Veteran & Military Discounts: 80+ Places Where Heroes Get (Almost) What They Deserve

(Updated 10/08/14)

On the heels of Memorial Day, I figured it was time to research which retail stores, restaurants, entertainment spots, and travel services offer a discount to veterans and active military personnel. Why this list is relatively small is kinda a head scratcher for me. You’d think darn everybody would offer a discount of some type for those who keep us save, and more importantly, free. I will definitely keep adding to this list as I find new discounts for veterans and active duty military. I hope that you find this list to be a useful and money saving resource.

    I know you mean well, but it takes away from your good intentions when your photo is an incorrectly fold U.S. flag. Most active military and veterans and most of their dependents will cringe when they see that photo.

    [Reply]

    Kyle Reply:

    Hi Cat, that is interesting you say that because the flag in the picture was given to me by the U.S. Army after my Grandfather (a vet from WWII) passed away ten years ago.

    [Reply]

    Cat Reply:

    Wow, that’s amazing a flag should never be folded with the stripes showing – we have several from the military in our home and they are all folded with just stars showing. If you Google how to fold an American flag all they show are flags with just stars showing – here is a good website explaining the folding of the American flag: http://www.usflag.org/foldflag.html

    [Reply]

    Kyle Reply:

    Interesting, only thing I can think is that maybe the flag was from the funeral home rather than the Army. I was curious and looked closely at the case and there is no visual signs of where it came from.

    Cat Reply:

    Well, good luck with your list. You are doing a great thing making this list. I wish you the best with it.

    John N (USAF ret) Reply:

    Interesting discussion. The proper way to fold a flag FOR PRESENTATION is with blue field and stars showing; yes each fold has specific meaning.

    The proper way to DISPLAY a flag is “respectfully & with honor”.

    Kyle Reply:

    Flag has been refolded correctly and new picture has been added to this article. Thanks for the heads up everyone!

    I personally think Lowes in Butler, PA should be removed. I easily spend a couple grand at home improvement stores annually and the Butler store decided if you’re no longer active the manager won’t honor the discount. It might seem petty to some as I seldom will ask for a discount personally. Being told it isn’t honored when all the other Lowes and Home Depot still honor your time served. I understand the logistics of it but it’s still insulting. I want to say, I served 13 years while your manager was probably pushing buggies for Lowes. Needless to say, I don’t shop at the Butler Lowes anymore.

    Thank you for this list. I am now sending a letter to every one of these entities explaining to them that by giving discounts to U.S. military they are also supporting and encouraging the attacks, invasions and occupations of several sovereign countries around the world, countries that have NOT attacked us. By doing this they are WARMONGERS, not PEACE SEEKERS.

    Lowes info not accurate. They will only give discount to ACTIVE OR RETIRED military anytime. For rest of veterans they only give a discount on Vets day, 4th of July and Memorial Day.
    Please correct posting.

    JUST SOME FRIENDLY INFORMATION:

    I am a 10% disabled Navy Veteran and receive VA disability pay monthly and receive medical care with the VA, so I have a Medical VA ID Card. This makes me a VA Recipient. I received a 10% discount last week when I purchased a Hepa Air Purifier for my home in Louisville, Ky from Lowe’s.

    I COPIED THE BELOW INFO FROM LOWE’S WEBSITE JUST NOW. IF YOU READ IT CAREFULLY YOU WILL BE MORE INFORMED CONCERNING WHO GETS DISCOUNTS, HOW MUCH OF A DISCOUNT AND WHEN.

    Lowe’s established the 10% Military Discount to support the men and women who are currently serving our country in the Armed Services1 and to honor Retired Veterans and “VA Recipients”.2 This 10% discount is also extended to the immediate family3 of those who are currently serving, Retired Veterans, or “VA Recipients.”

    To qualify for the “Everyday 10% Military Discount,” you must:

    Be currently serving in, or retired from, a qualifying branch of the Armed Services, or be the immediate family member of someone who is and have a valid military ID Card.

    Or:

    ********”Be a veteran who “receives VA benefits and have a valid Veteran Identification Card (VIC).”******

    We honor all Veterans on three specific holidays: Memorial Day, 4th of July and Veterans Day. During these three holiday weekends,******* we extend the discount to “all veterans” who served honorably and who present a valid Form DD214 or other proof of service. The Lowe’s Military Discount is extended to the Veteran community on these three holidays only.

    The Military Discount must be used on personal purchases only and cannot be used for Lowe’s.com purchases, previous sales, or the purchase of gift cards or services including product installations. It cannot be combined with the Lowe’s Price Guarantee, or promotions such as “Spend and Get,” “New Mover,” “Project Starter,” “Your Choice,” or discounts such as Quote Support Program (QSP) quotes.

    1 Armed Services — US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Marine Corps, US Coast Guard, or the National Guard and who are in active, reserve, or retired status.
    2 Retired Veterans *****and VA Recipients***** — Veterans who have retired after 20 years of service *******and/or those who receive VA Benefits********
    3 Immediate Family — Spouses and/or dependent children (up to 18 years old.)

    Hi Kyle

    My business is photography, specializing in weddings and portraits in eastern NC. With so many military families in this area, it is an honor to be able to offer all active duty personnel 10% off on all photo sessions.

    This is all really nice. Great for active military, military retirees and those who get VA benefits. But a big bloc of those vets left out are those who served an enlistment and got out. Like me, I served in the USAF from 1960 to 1964. Got an honorable discharge and went home to college and a job. Does not look like we are included…….

    Culver’s Family Restaurant chain offers generally a 10% discount. Depending on the cashier, you may get 15%. I’ve received both many times, just depends who is working. One manager said 10%, another said 15%.
