Ace Hardware

While they don’t do a very good job of promoting it, Ace Hardware does in fact offer a military discount.

OMK actually reached out to them directly, and they informed us that most locations offer a 10% off discount.

Home Depot

While we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from visitors, apparently Home Depot offers a 10% off discount to active duty military.

Unfortunately, they don’t do a very good job of explaining the exact terms and conditions of the military discount anywhere on their website.

Lowe’s Home Improvement

Lowe’s offers a 10% off discount to all active duty members of the military, as well as their family members.

They allow you to redeem the discount both in stores, and on their website. Some of the restrictions include the discount not being available to anything other than an honorable discharge, and it can’t be stacked with other offers or coupons.

Lumber Liquidators

Lumber Liquidators gives back to military members by providing a 5% discount on all regularly-priced orders.

This is a smaller discount compared to what is often offered by retailers, but it can still make a big impact on the amount of money you pay for hardwood flooring.

Menards

Even though Menards doesn’t offer a military discount, there are plenty of other ways to save money. They include things like rebates, 11% off everything events, their BIG card, Ray’s list, and Price match policy.

Entertainment / Theme Parks

Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens has a few different military discounts, which vary by location and by military status.

The many deals make it possible for any military member, past or present, to receive free or low-priced admission tickets.

The main Busch Gardens military discount comes from the Waves of Freedom program.

This deal gives current military members free admission to the parks, at both the Williamsburg location and the Tampa location.

Carowinds

Carowinds offers a daily military discount, a deal on season tickets, and an annual military appreciation event.

The military discount ticket is available online for only $39.99.

They also offer a discount on season passes, allowing you to purchase a military gold pass for only $83.

Cedar Point 

Nicknamed the “Roller Coaster Capital Of The World”, Cedar Point is actually one of the oldest amusement parks in the world.

They also offer a military discount and military appreciation days.

The daily discount entitles you to $30 off your admission ticket.

Military Appreciation Days are even better, offering free admission to both members of the military and veterans.

Dollywood

Dollywood offers 30% off of a daily admission ticket for their military discount. This deal is only available for tickets bought in person at the gate.

Disneyland

Disneyland offers a wide variety of military discounts on hotels, tickets, and more.

The company explains that if service members purchase their 3 or 4-Day Park Hopper tickets before December 2019 they will receive admission for three days at just $178.

The pass is $198 for four days of admission.

The Disney military discount is available only to eligible service members or their spouses (but not both parties).

Disney World

Disney World offers 2 main discounts for military:

  1. Disney Armed Forces Salute, and
  2. A Regular Military Discount

The Armed Forces Salute deal brings admission prices down to just over half of their typical cost.

The Disney Armed Forces Salute discount is available for 4 or 5 day ticket passes, and the price of a 4 day ticket is $241 plus tax.

The “regular” military discount is nowhere near as good as the Armed Forces Salute, but it will still entitle you to a savings of 4% – 8% of the total ticket price.

Great Wolf Lodge

The indoor water park / hotel offers a 30% discount on select rooms, during available dates.

You can also receive the discount if you are work as a Firefighter, EMS, Law Enforcement Officer, 911 dispatcher, or correctional officer.

To use the discount, you must use the code HEROES when making your reservation as well as be present when checking in.

Hershey Park

Hershey Park offers a Military Discount every day as well as a Military Appreciation weekend in May.

The every day Military Discount offers $20 off of an adult (ages 9-54) single-day admission or $4 off of a child/senior (ages 3-8 and 55+) single-day admission.

The discount can actually be used for up to 8 admissions!

Kings Dominion

The Kings Dominion amusement park offers four separate ways for past and present military members and their families to save on admission price.

They include the regular military discount ticket, special event tickets, the Military Gold Pass, and annual Military Appreciation Events.

Knott’s Berry Farm

Knott’s Berry Farm gives back to military members through two separate deals, their Military Tribute Days and the daily military discount.

Legoland

Legoland is a chain of amusement parks and resorts designed around the popular building brick toy.

They are internationally based, but their United States locations offer a military discount.

The exact discount available will vary by base.

For an example, the Camp Pendleton base’s Ticket and Travel Office provides a discount of close to 30% on Legoland tickets.

Medieval Times

Medieval Times gives back to the military by providing discounted tickets for those who serve, those who have served in the past, and their family members. 

Discounted tickets are available online through a site called ID.me, or through your local base’s Ticket and Travel office.

San Diego Zoo

The San Diego Zoo offers a very general military discount, and there are a few different ways to get a deal on admission to this attraction.

The San Diego Zoo offers free admission for active military members.

This free admission can be used on any day of the year, including holidays and weekends.

SeaWorld 

The official Seaworld military discount is called “Waves of Honor”, and honors active-duty military and veterans alike with free tickets to the theme park.

You can take advantage of the deal by signing up with ID.me, and redeeming your free tickets online.

Additionally, Seaworld offers reduced price tickets via your local Ticket and Travel office.

The discount is not nearly as good as their Waves of Honor program, but at least it’s something!

Six Flags Theme Parks

Six Flags offers some steep military discounts for our men and women in uniform at nearly all of their locations.

You can save anywhere from 20% – 40% if you’re currently serving in the military.

Ticketmaster

Ticketmaster does not have a simple percentage-off discount to give to military members, unfortunately.

However, they have come up with a few creative ways to give back to military members throughout the years.

Universal Studios

Universal Studios is proud to support the U.S. Military.

Discounted admission to the park is available both at your local MWR/ITT, or at the gate.

The amount of savings depends on where you purchase the tickets.

Hotel Military Discounts

Best Western

Military members, both past and present, can save on the cost of their hotel rooms at most Best Western locations.

The discount is not a set amount of money off of each hotel room.

It’s a percentage that varies depending on location and date of reservation.

Hilton Hotels

Hilton hotels offer a 10% discount for military families and individuals alike.

When you make your reservation online, you may have to use a special promo code – PGMFR1 or MFR – when making your reservation online.

Alternatively, you can simply show your military ID at check-in.

Holiday Inn

Owned by a company called IHG, Holiday Inn also offers a military discount.

With that said, it’s a bit complicated to describe in a 50 word blurb.

Marriott

Marriott offers a discount for government and Military personnel.

The discount varies widely depending on the date, the hotel location and the room availability.

OMK checked several room rates and found a savings between 10% and 40%.

If there are multiple hotels owned by Marriott in the area you are wanting to stay, it is best to check all of them to find the best discount.

Sandals Resorts

Sandals offers 10% off to all military members, both past and present.

This deal stands out from other military promotions, since the 10% can be added on top of other promotions offered by the company. 

Restaurants

OMK got in touch with 138 of the largest restaurant chains in the US to find out if they have a military discount.

Applebee’s

Applebee’s gives back to military members through a variety of deals, both daily and throughout the year.

They offer both a daily 10% discount, as well as a free meal on Veterans day.  All you need to do is show your military ID when you go to pay the bill, and your waiter or waitress will have a manage apply the discount.

Buffalo Wild Wings

Buffalo Wild Wings has stores that are owned by their corporation, and stores that are individually owned and run.

Because of this, they cannot have an across-the-board military discount.

However, many if not most of the Buffalo Wild Wings locations offer military discounts.

This deal typically gives military members, both past and present, 10% off their meal.

Chick-fil-A

Although there are a few different ways to save with Chick-fil-A, a Military Discount is not one that is advertised on their website or social media accounts.

However, each Chick-fil-A is independently owned and discounts are up to the owner of the location.

Several sources have noted that participating locations offer a 10% off military discount.

Select locations also offer a Military Appreciation Day every year. 

Chipotle

While they don’t offer a daily military discount, Chipotle offers a buy-one-get-one free offer on Veterans day.

Often picking a weeknight leading up to this National Holiday, Chipotle extends their generous offer for military members and their spouses as a prelude in recognition of those that sacrifice the most in defense of this country.

Denny’s

Denny’s does not have a chain-wide military discount, but a majority of their locations provide a deal to those who serve.

Many Denny’s locations also offer a free meal on Veteran’s Day.

Golden Corral

Unfortunately, Golden Corral does not offer a discount off of their regular prices for everyday meals.

They do, however, have another way to give back to military members.

Every year, Golden Corral hosts a Military Appreciation Dinner.

During this dinner, military members eat for free. 

IHOP

In observance of Veteran’s Day, November 11th, IHOP offers a “free” breakfast to all members of the military active or retired.

IHOP also offers continual discounts of up to 20% daily on all iHop breakfast and menu items, depending on location, in appreciation for their efforts and their protection of this country.

Olive Garden

While Olive Garden doesn’t offer a daily military discount, they do have a Veterans Day promotion.

It’s limited to participating locations, but it will entitle you to a free entree and 10% off the bill for your entire party.

Additionally, OMK found other ways you can save at Olive Garden.

Outback Steakhouse

Outback Steakhouse has partnered with Operation Homefront to provide a Heroes Discount.

The discount is for 10% off of your entire check, and can be redeemed by active and retired military personnel, police officers, firefighters, and EMT’s.

Papa John’s

It was a bit unclear as to whether or not Papa John’s actually offers a military discount.  Some users reported that they do, but when we tried the coupon codes out ourselves, they didn’t work.

With that said, there are other ways to save at the pizza chain.

Pizza Hut

I often wondered if they had a discount for the military. But when OMK inquired about this, I was told that Pizza Hut does not have any sort of military discount.

With that said, there are other ways to save at the pizza chain.

Red Lobster

Red Lobster offers all active duty service members a 10% discount off their total bill every day of the week.

The discount program used to be called Military Monday, but a representative from Red lobster confirmed with me that it’s available everyday.

Red Robin

Red Robin unfortunately does not offer a military discount that gives a steady percentage off every day like many other restaurants across the country do.

They do, however, provide various coupons and deals to military members throughout the year through their Red Robin Loyalty Program.

Starbucks

While Starbucks doesn’t actually offer a military discount at this time, there are other ways you can save.

Texas Roadhouse

Texas Roadhouse is a steak restaurant that is focused around providing good food and an overall good time to their guests.

They give back to military members in a variety of ways, one of which is through a generous military discount.

Military members get 10% off their final bill every single time they eat at the restaurant.

The chain also gives back by providing free meals to military members and veterans on Veteran’s day each year.

On average, they give away over 240,000 free meals to veterans and active military members through this deal.

Computer & Electronics

Apple

Apple offers a 10% off discount to members of the military, as well as special government rates and an online store dedicated to US Government employees.

This store is exclusive to employees of the US Govt., and the savings they provide are unreal.

In addition, Veterans and Military pricing is afforded to not only current and veteran members of the US Military, National Guard, and Reserves, but also immediate family members.

Of course, there are a few restrictions as well.

Avast 

While Avast doesn’t actually offer up a military discount, they do have affiliations with Deal and coupon sites that can help you save some money.

Best Buy

OMK spoke directly with our local Best Buy, and they informed me that they have not had an official military discount available for several years.

This is supported by a forum post I came across on the official Best Buy website, which stated the same. 

With that said, there are other ways to save.

Dell

Dell offers a great military discount which can help you save anywhere from 10% – 30% depending on what you order.

For example, Dell PC’s, tablets, and electronics typically have a 10% discount.

On the other hand, select Dell products can offer as much as a 30% savings.

Dell also has an exclusive military store similar to Apples.  You can confirm your eligibility with their partner Veterans Advantage, and once you’re in they will hook you up big time!

Gamestop

Unfortunately, Gamestop does not offer a daily military discount.

However, we decided to include it on this page because they support military families.

The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit foundation that helps veterans find high quality jobs through raising awareness of the value that veterans provide and supporting groups that help veterans find jobs.

Additionally, OMK found a few other ways for you to save a few bucks on your next Gamestop order.

Garmin

Though Garmin does not have a direct discount for military members, they are a Brand Partner with GovX.

This means that military members can still get exclusive deals on Garmin products.

GoPro

While they don’t offer a specific military discount on their official website, GoPro offers discounts on select items via GovX.

Those items include things like HERO7 Black and White cameras, Sports kits, travel kits, and adventure kits, and changes all the time.

They also allow first responders like firefighters, police officers, and EMT’s to redeem the discount as well.

HP

HP has a background of working with the United States Military, and they continue to give back to service members through a military discount.

HP offers members of the military access to their employee discount program.

While not specifically a military discount in the traditional sense of the word, you’ll save as much as 35%.

Lenovo

The Lenovo military discount entitles you to a savings of 7% off your order, both via ID.me and / or with an APO or FPO.

While this might not sound like a lot, you have to consider that many of their products are in the $100’s or $1,000’s in retail pricing.

The savings can really add up!

Microsoft Office

Microsoft offers a military discount for their flagship Office 365 Home Military Edition product.

The discount will save you $30, and you can claim it both online, and in a nearby Microsoft store.

You can also find the military discount available on ShopMyExchange.com, an online version of a military PX.

NewEgg

NewEgg offers 1 year of free premier for active duty members of the military. 

Though it only lasts for a year, a NewEgg Premier membership offers many more perks that outweigh the perk of having a few dollars knocked off your final price.

They include things like expedited shipping, exclusive deals and sales not available to anyone else, no restocking fees, and much more.

Samsung

Samsung offers up to a 30% savings with their military discount. You have to register with their site to redeem it, but it’s pretty straightforward.

All you need is an official military email address that ends in .mil (for example: army.mil, usmc.mil, etc.,) and you’ll get access to their exclusive offer.

There are some restrictions with the military discount, including purchase maximums and certain category restrictions.

Staples

Staples doesn’t offer a military discount at this time, but you can save with their rewards program, special deals, and their price match program.

American Airlines

American Airlines offers a 5% military discount on airfare, as well as deals on checked bags and other perks.

Delta Airlines goes above and beyond with their military discount, offering reduced airfare rates AND free baggage checks.

The Delta military discount does not define an exact percentage of savings on a flight.

Additionally, like the other airlines, they also offer a baggage waiver.

Southwest Airlines

Like most other US airlines, Southwest Airlines offers a military discount. 

Southwest Airlines is comparable to many other major airlines in the United States.

There is a military discount, however, unlike other industries that offer one the amount of savings is not fixed.

So instead of Southwest telling you that they will give you 5% off your next flight you need to contact them directly and inquire about a military discount.

Spirit Airlines

Spirit Airlines does not give a discount to those who serve on fares, because they aim to provide low prices to all of their customers.

They do, however, give back to military members with a few other generous deals.

Car / Truck Rental 

uhaul military discount
The U-Haul military discount. Image: Flickr.com

OMK did the research, and learned of some great car rental military discounts that are available to both active duty, as well as retired.

Alamo Rent a Car

Alamo Rent a Car is proud to support the U.S. Military with a couple of different options. The military discount depends on if you are traveling on official orders or for leisure.

There are 2 ways to redeem it: discount on official government travel, and a discount on military travel for leisure.

Avis Rental Cars

Military personnel can save on their next Avis car rental through Veterans Advantage.

The offer is available to active duty military, National Guard, Reservists, veterans, and eligible family members.

Avis says that you can save up to 25% off your next rental when you book through Veterans Advantage.

Budget

Budget car rentals offers up to a 25% discount.  However, unlike many of the other discounts on this page, you have to redeem the discount through a program called Veterans Advantage.

The benefits of signing up for Veterans Advantage is that you can claim a TON of other military discounts.

Enterprise Rent A Car

Like most (if not all) of the other major car rental companies in the US, Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a military discount as well.

You can expect to get a 5% discount on your car rental if you’re active-duty military, a military retiree, or a veteran.

With that said, because Enterprise is a franchise, it’s up to the specific location as to whether or not the discount is available.

You can also save more by signing up for Veterans Advantage, as well as redeem special perks and discounts.

Hertz

If you’re a government / federal employee, you might want to check out Hertz’s military discount. They offer some of the best govt. rates you will find for car rentals in the US.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you exactly how much you will save with Hertz by receiving the military discount yet you will earn some form of savings.

Penske Truck Rentals

Penske offers a Military Discount of 10% off of truck rentals.

To use the discount enter the code MILITARY when booking your rental.

You must bring a Military ID or proof of Veteran status when you pickup your rental to retrieve the discount.

Uhaul

Uhaul offers a 10% – 15% military discount, but it’s not so cut and dry.

Officially, they don’t advertise a military discount anywhere in their company literature, or on their official site.

With that said, some existing customers claim that when you give them a call they may apply a discount to your final bill once you notify them that you are active duty or retired military.

Apparently, online and phone sales agents for Uhaul have the flexibility to add a 10% – 15% off discount.

Clothing Military Discounts

Adidas

Unfortunately, Adidas does not offer a military discount.

However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to save some $.

Finish Line

According to several sources, Finish Line offers a 10% off military discount to active duty military and their families. However, it’s only available at certain locations.

Like many of the other discounts on this page, there are some restrictions.

Lululemon

Lululemon offers, wait for it, a 25% military discount to our men and women in uniform.

Michael’s offers 15% off your entire purchase for military members, every day.

Nike

Nike offers a 10% discount to eligible military personnel, spouses, and dependents. The savings apply to active duty military, veterans, retired personnel, and reservists. 

Old Navy / GAP

There’s a lot of misinformation online about the Old Navy / Gap military discount, so OMK reached out to their PR department directly to get a straight answer. 

According to them, both Old Navy and The GAP offer a 10% off discount to active, retired, and reserve US military personnel and family members.

Of course, a valid military ID is required to redeem the discount.

Target

Home & Garden Military Discounts

macys military discount

Ashley Furniture

While Ashley Furniture doesn’t offer a specific military discount, they DO have several other ways to save.

They include things like their “spin the wheel” discount offer, which will give you a one-time 10$ off coupon.

Additionally, they offer online deals, hot buys, and Veterans Day / Memorial Day sales.

Bealls

The clothing and accessory shop is another in a long line of retail stores that offer military discounts.

At Bealls, you can expect to save 15% on your in-store purchase.  It’s a bit unclear as to whether or not the discount can be applied online, however.

Like the others listed on this page, they also have a wide variety of coupons and promo codes available.

Ikea

When searching for a Military Discount, unfortunately Ikea came up short.

Even though Ikea does not currently offer a Military Discount, they still offer different discounts and promotions.

Kirklands

Note: We’re talking about the home décor store, NOT the Costco Kirklands.  Click Here to read about the Costco military discount.

Kirklands home décor offers a 10% off military discount to qualified active duty military, as well as retired veterans.

This discount can be used in conjunction with other discounts, which is a nice bonus; so those claiming the discount won’t have to worry about choosing between one discount or the other.

Kohl’s

Recently Kohl’s introduced a Military Discount of 15% that can be used on Mondays, in-store only.

Kohl’s offers the discount to active military, veterans, retirees and immediate family members.

Macy’s

Macy’s offers a 10% off military discount, with a few restrictions.

Unfortunately, the discount is apparently only offered on the first Tuesday of every month.

With that said, unlike many other discounts, you actually CAN combine the military discount with other discounts.

Overstock

In addition to their already superb deals, Overstock offers military members and their families a great military discount.

However, it’s not an actual discount in the traditional sense of the word.

You won’t exactly save a certain % on a purchase, unlike many of the other discounts on this page.

Sam’s Club
