Most veterans are well aware of the many discounts that are offered to them on Veterans Day as well as Memorial Day.

There are sometimes special discounts offered on Independence Day as well, but what many veterans may not know is that there are special discounts offered to them all year long.

There are usually restrictions, so you must read the fine print to know if you qualify.

Lowe’s all year round discount

As most people already know, Lowe’s is one of the top home improvement stores in the United States. In addition, they offer a 10 percent discount to all active military members, retired veterans and veterans who are receiving Veterans Administration benefits. All other veterans can receive discounts only on Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Independence Day.

AC Lens discount

AC Lens offers a ten percent discount to retired veterans by using the online coupon code MILITARY. You can also order by phone. A current, valid military identification is required to get this discount.

Anna’s Linens

This chain offers a wide range of bedding and other items to make your home more comfortable and attractive. They offer a 10 percent discount to all retired veterans or active duty personnel. You need only show your military identification to receive the discount at any story. If there is no store near you, they also offer the discount for online purchases, but you must first call customer service to get your online discount code.

Hotels

Hilton hotels offer military discounts in all of their participating hotels throughout the world. The discount is granted when military identification is shown during the check-in period. All veterans should call in advance to make sure the particular Hilton hotel participates in this discount program.

Disneyland and Disney World

Retired veterans, meaning those with 20 years or more of service, can get special discounts for tickets to either Disneyland in Anaheim, California or Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The offer runs from September to September and is usually renewed each year. There are certain block-out dates that limit the days the tickets can be used. These days are usually weekends and holidays. The discounts are very attractive, and if you are near either park, it may be worth a visit.

Universal Studios Hollywood

Retired veterans can purchase tickets at substantially reduced prices, and these discounts can be taken advantage of online or at the studio box office. There are some restrictions, check the website for more details.

Costco

This is a wholesale store that is great for those with families. If you are a veteran they offer a membership with over $50 in savings. This is a one-time discount for becoming a new member, but the offer is available to veterans all year.

Restaurants

Hard Rock Café offers a year round 15 percent discount to any military personnel presenting a military I.D. card. This also includes retired veterans.

KOA campgrounds

For those veterans who love to travel in recreational vehicles, you will be happy to know that KOA campgrounds offer discounts from five to 15 percent to veterans. The discounts will vary from one location to another, so you should call in advance.

Car Insurance

Geico offers a 15 percent discount on insurance premiums to veterans. As a discount insurance company they already have low rates, but once you figure in a veteran discount, you may find that they offer the best deal. Geico also offers discounted policies for a motorcycle, RV and boats. In addition, you can use a veteran discount for a property insurance policy.

Always keep in mind that America does not forget the service of those who have given their time to protect this nation, and there are many discounts available. The above list only scratches the surface, but is a good starting point to discovering the appreciation that awaits veterans of the United States military.
