America’s Retail Chains Thank Veterans
With Discounts & Freebies

Many retail chains throughout America offer special discounts and freebies to Veterans in honor of Veterans Day.  Listed below are 36 such opportunities.

Keep in mind the following considerations:

1) Proof of Military Service
Most restaurants and companies require some form of military identification. This might include everything from showing up in uniform to showing some form of military ID. Other proof-of-service accepted by most outlets include a Veterans Organization Card (VFW, American Legion, etc.) DD214 discharge papers, Current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) or a photo of you in uniform.

2) Participating Outlets
