First of all, thank you to all the veterans and their families for your service to our country. I hope this list is a resource for you in your everyday needs. You deserve it!
Remember to bring a valid military ID and it is important to realize that discounts may vary by location, so call ahead to verify. Also, some of these discounts work online as well through a third-party military ID verification. Consequently, if redeeming online, you’ll want to have a digital copy of your ID (like a photo) or another military identification document ready. It can take five to twenty minutes to verify your military status online.
Deals that are for active-duty only are highlighted in green. Otherwise, deals are for both active and retired veterans!
Locations vary, but most offer 10% off to veterans and their families.
Home Depot offers 10% off storewide and online for military personnel and their immediate family members! This deal is good year-round! This is one of the best deals we found. The deal does have a $5,000 maximum, but even that would be $500 off!
Lowe’s gives 10% off to ALL military members and their immediate family! The military discount is valid in-store and works on purchases up to $5,000!

To sign up, you will need to verify your military service. Then you will receive a membership card which will make you eligible for the 10% military discount.

However, to get the Nike military discount online you must submit a document showing proof of military affiliation.

However, in-store you only have to show your military ID.

First of all, I found that there are several discounts out there for military weddings. But, due to a large number of articles to research, I have not written an article on military weddings yet.
