Military Discounts Really Add Up

I am so appreciative when a company offers a military discount.  If only I could remember to ask for them consistently, I would save a lot of money.  I do pretty well at asking for discounts on big stuff, like amusement park tickets, but I’m terrible at asking as smaller businesses.  I’ve seriously considered putting a post-it note on my computer screen and another one on my wallet, and I probably should.

This great post at CincHouse talks about the value of military discounts, and I couldn’t agree more.  Getting in the habit of searching for military discounts can help to stretch your paycheck just a little further.

    Here is a great list of military discounts at Wright Patterson AFB:

    The site has discounts for most military installations out there.

  • I was actually in the Atlanta airport last week buying a coffee at Starbucks when the lady behind the counter saw my military ID in my wallet when I was paying and gave me a $1 military discount on $7 worth of coffee.

  • Dan and Hank, thanks for your contributions. No one person could ever know about all the discounts out there, and it is only through sharing that we can learn.
