Military Discounts



How Many Stores and Restaurants Offer Military or Veteran Discounts?

Literally hundreds.

A few years ago I started a comprehensive list of stores and restaurants that currently offer a military discount that would be a great place to start your search for discounts you might take advantage of.

Be sure to check my list OFTEN as I’m always adding new retailers to it, so let me know if you know of any places that I might be missing.

At most stores, YES, the spouse of the service member or vet can also use the military discount.
