Before you go....

  • Check the fine print, and call the participating organization to be sure the offer is available at the time you plan on arriving.
  • Let the host, cashier, attendant or other relevant employee know up front that you want the discount or deal.
  • “Free” isn’t always completely free. A free meal doesn’t always come with a drink, for instance. Be prepared to pay for extras (and to tip). Most restaurants require patrons to dine in if they want the deal.
  • Call ahead to local establishments to be sure they are aware of, and are participating in, national chain programs. Confirm availability and what type of ID is required.
  • Not all offers apply to veterans of all stripes. Be sure you are eligible and you have the appropriate ID/paperwork.
  • Not all discounts apply to the entire party. Be sure you’re clear whether family members or guests are covered in the discount.
  • Always check with your local installation’s tickets and tours office before making plans for travel and visiting local attractions. They work with local and national companies to offer discounts on a variety of hotels and attractions, and many of these deals are available only through that installation office.
