Veterans Day Discounts for Nov 11th

veterans day discountsEvery Nov. 11, restaurants and retailers say “thank you” to veterans by offering them free meals and other goodies via Veterans Day Discounts. And, each year, it’s quite a long list. All the offers below have been verified by our team. We’ll be adding to the list as more businesses confirm their Veterans Day discounts.

This year (2017), as a vet or active service member, you can enjoy drinks, meals, appetizers, desserts, special services and more at your favorite spots without paying a dime. To take advantage of these exclusive offers, grab your military I.D. and visit one of the food joints, coffee shops and stores listed below this Veterans Day.

while most of these offers are available only on or around November 11, you can enjoy military discounts from retailers and restaurants year-round, you just have to ask.

Be sure to call your local restaurant or business to see if they’re participating. Your nearest franchise may not participate, so be sure to check with your local chain. It is also important to know what documentation or proof of service is required!

Other Military discounts that you may qualify for

Other than Veterans Day Discounts you can find Military discounts vary greatly in quality, but 10% off is common. If you’re on active duty, a veteran, or a retiree, most car manufacturers offer a discount of $500 or more; however, you’ll be limited to select (often new) models. Travel deals are also common, but typically vague. Many hotels offer discounted rates that are based on government per diem rates, which may or may not be the best deal you can find.

No matter where you’re shopping or what you’re shopping for, be sure to ask about a military discount before you buy. Even retailers who aren’t on this list may offer military discounts.

About the Author:

Hi, I am Gregory Beckman, as the main owner of Military Hunting and Fishing let me tell you a little bit more about myself. I am currently an active duty member in the United States Coast Guard. I have been privileged to traveling the world. My experiences have shaped the way that I see the world and my memories will stick with me for a lifetime.

Although I may not live in the country, the country lives in me. Traveling the world I have had the chance to experience the wonders of nature in many different places, meeting many different people and tasting wild game that the normal person would not get to experience. Although these experiences have kept me away from home, it has instilled a deep passion of hunting and fishing in my blood.

Thank you for joining our site, and I look forward to interacting and sharing stories of our hunting adventures.

Gregory A. Beckman
