Veterans Day Freebies & Discounts – The Ultimate List

With Veterans Day around the corner, we wanted everyone to know about the great discounts and freebies available in your community. We have compiled a list of restaurants, parks, retailers, and more that will be offering Veterans, Service Members, and their families freebies and deals on services and goods.

Remember: Always check with the establishment in your area, not all locations on these lists are participating. You will also want to ensure you have proof of your service (Military ID, Drivers Licence with Veterans Designation, DD214, a photo ID in uniform, wearing your uniform, or some other proof of service). Finally, always ask your server/cashier/attendant for the discount, don’t assume they know about the discount or freebie… plus, you know what they say about assuming… ūüėČ

We have compiled the lists according to type of establishment. Click on the link and you will be able to view the PDF in your browser then opt to print or save the list by clicking the appropriate icon on the bottom right. Have fun, enjoy, and thank you for your service!
