Lululemon popularized athleisure wear more than any other brand. With their comfy clothes for people of all shapes and sizes, they have a wide market that they need to cater to.

If you regularly go to the gym, are in any sports, or just make it a point to incorporate exercise into your life, you have probably shopped at Lululemon more than once.

With all sorts of clothing such as skirts, pants, shirts, swimsuits and even bodysuits, Lululemon is bound to have something for everyone.

And if you’re a woman or man with a military background, you may be wondering if Lululemon offers a military discount.

A quick search on Google shows that Lululemon does, in fact, offer a discount; the discount knocks 15% off the subtotal.

How to claim the discount

All that’s needed is a proper government ID to prove you’re either active duty military, a military spouse, or an active first responder, and you’ll be able to claim the discount.

This means that a valid ID should be shown to the cashier of a Lululemon store before you pay.

Showing a valid ID is really the only way to determine your status in person.

Lululemon doesn’t accept any other forms of paperwork or identification to validate a person’s military status.

Who can claim the discount?

The best part is that the discount applies not only to those with a military background but also to first responders and spouses of those in the military.

This means that active firefighters, police officers, EMTs, paramedics, and correctional officers can all claim the discount.

Spouses of first responders can’t claim the discount, however.

This discount applies to all of North America, meaning shoppers in the United States, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean can all claim the discount.

Spouses and dependents of active duty and active reserve military personnel that live in the same household can claim the discount.

The discount is non-transferable, however. This means that you can only use the discount for things you purchase for yourself.

What’s a valid ID look like?

Something like these (if you’re active duty military)

Further information on the discount

Lululemon has an entire page on its website dedicated to answering questions about its military discount.

This webpage covers a few basic questions on the discount, including how much is knocked off the price, who can claim the discount, and more.

It’s worth looking at before your next visit to a Lululemon store so that you can have any questions answered as well as formulate any other questions you’d like to ask an associate.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the discount be used online?

It’s now possible to use the Lululemon military discount online. All you need to do is register an account.

You’ll be able to verify your military status using the SheerID system once you have a Lululemon account. 

To use your discount at the store, you’ll need to show your ID upon checkout after asking the store associate for your 15 percent off.

What is excluded from the discount?

The Lululemon military discount covers everything in the store, including markdowns.

It isn’t applicable for purchases from the “Lululemon Like New” website or when purchasing gift cards. You also cannot use the discount for items you’re gifting or reselling to others. Your 15% off also can’t be combined with other coupons or with gift cards.

Can the discount be stacked?

Meaning, can the discount be used in conjunction with other discounts?

Lululemon’s page on the military discount says the savings apply to sales, but not to other promotions or when using a gift card. 

Lots of stores that usually don’t allow discounts to be combined will make an exception for those using the military discount. 

You can always ask at the counter when checking out since that policy isn’t really clear — but be prepared to hear no.

Be sure to do the math in your head beforehand to determine which discount is the better discount, so you can quickly decide whether or not you’re going to claim the military discount during your purchase.

Can I claim the discount if I’m retired?

Fortunately, Lululemon’s page on the military discount says the discount applies to veteran and retired military personnel, too. 

It’s worth noting that many stores and chains across the country do extend the military discount to those who are retired or are otherwise no longer on active duty.

Can divorced spouses claim the discount?

It’s safe to say no, former spouses of those eligible for the discount can’t claim it for themselves.

What if I’ve been dishonorably discharged?

Again, Lululemon isn’t clear about this part, but it’s always worth an ask.

Since the discount requires verification of your military service through SheerID, it’s likely the discount won’t apply to you.

It’s also worth noting that Lululemon seems a bit strict about who can claim the discount; the spouses of first responders already can’t claim the discount, nor can the children, parents, or extended family of non-active duty military men and women.

It’s probably safe to assume that anyone who doesn’t qualify for a veteran’s ID won’t be able to claim the discount.

Although Lululemon can be a tad strict in who can claim the discount, it’s good to know that they offer a discount at all.

Offering the discount to first responders and military spouses and dependents is also very nice, as not many stores extend the discount to non-military servicepeople.

It’s important to remember that you’ll need to register online for a Lululemon account to get the discount either online or in the store. 

Shoppers should also bear in mind that Lululemon is still a bit unclear on whether or not dishonorably discharged vets can claim the discount, as well as whether or not the discount can be combined with other discounts.

Anyone shopping at Lululemon and planning on claiming the discount should be sure to register online for a store account before checking out at the store.

  1. Went to Lululemon, was going to buy leggings for my 12 year old daughter and they said I could not get the military discount because they were for her, that we could only buy item that my husband and myself would be wearing. Sort of a bummer since she has born plenty of the brunts of her dads deployments 😕

    1. That is awful. What kind of program is that! Of course it should be acceptable for the young daughter of an active duty military person to use the discount when her mother is buying! I hope it was just an error in that particular store. We don’t need generous discounts that are basically not usable!! I also read that you can buy a gift with the discount as well, as long as you are buying!

  2. I can answer two questions.

    1. Yes you can stack the discount. I just went in and got a bunch of the stuff from the discount rack and they then applied the 25%

    2. I’m not active duty, I am retired and my CFOne veterans card is accepted. As long as you have an issued veterans card you will get the discount.
