Being raised in a military family I have seen & felt firsthand the hardships that military families endure. It is of GREAT pleasure to say, THANK YOU for your service!! I want to mark this special day by presenting to you a list of Veterans Day Discounts & Freebies you can enjoy.
Each year businesses honor Veterans and Servicemembers by offering Veteran’s Day discounts on goods, services, and dining. Please make sure you bring your Military ID with you. Also, make sure you pay attention to the dates listed below. There are some offers that are occurring after veterans’ day.
Veterans Day meals started as a tradition shortly after September 11, 2001 as a way to directly support, honor, and say “thanks” to America’s military veterans
Wondering about Year-Round Military Discounts? You can check out this comprehensive list.
Expect Veterans Day discount changes
Just because that restaurant you love is still offering a Veterans Day discount this year, it may not be safe to assume it’s the same discount offered in years past. Pay attention to the details. Not all franchise locations participate in their national chain’s Veterans Day programs — be sure contact your nearest establishment to make sure they are participating.
How to Get Veterans Day Free Meals Deals
A few things to remember before you head out to grab your free meals and discount offers.
- You will need a form of Military ID
May not be valid for spouses or dependents
- Not all locations participate
- This isn’t a right or a privilege, but a gesture of thanks
Please remember to tip
