75+ Veterans Day Freebies & Discounts

Each year retailers and restaurants across the country offer Veterans Day freebies and discounts to show their appreciation to servicemen and women past and present. This year the holiday falls on Saturday, Nov. 11, but many merchants have offers spread throughout the weekend. To help you track down the best deals, we've compiled this list of 75 freebies and discounts for Veterans Day 2017. Most require proof of military service with one of the following options:

Proof of Military Service
As proof of military service, you can usually present a Uniform Service ID card, Uniform Services Retired ID card, current “Leave and Earnings” statement, a DD214, photograph in uniform, wear your uniform, or such veterans’ organization cards as American Legion or VFW.

Participating Outlets
Many of these companies are franchises, meaning not every location will participate. If you have questions, call ahead to verify they’re offering the deal we’ve listed and the times they're offering it.
