To show gratitude to veterans and active-duty members of the armed forces (and their families), many retailers offer special discounts to active and former military personnel, veterans, families of the Armed Forces, and first-responders.
By presenting a military ID or filling out an application online, eligible shoppers can save up to 50% on everything from new tech to insurance.
To make it easier to navigate, we’ve rounded up a list of stores offering military discounts year-round and on Memorial Day, below. And though there are a good amount listed, it’s always a good practice to ask at any store you’re shopping at since many don’t advertise, or in case they require in-person verification.
