Although May (for Military Appreciation Month) and November (for Veterans Day) are full of advertising about military discounts and freebies, lots of such deals are available 365 days a year.
As a veteran, my best advice when it comes to navigating military discounts is always to ask. While some businesses tout military and veteran discounts as a way to attract customers, the lack of a posted discount doesn’t mean there isn’t one.
Mom-and-pop stores and locally owned businesses might offer an unadvertised military discount or be willing to apply a discount on the spot, if asked. If you don’t ask, you don’t receive.
