More Veteran’s Day Discounts
As is tradition, every year businesses pay tribute to military service members and veterans on Veterans Day by offering discounts on their products or services.
Not all franchises participate in their corporate programs, so before you get your heart set on something you see below, make sure to call your local shop to verify their participation. And speaking of verification, make sure you bring proof of your military service: a VA Universal Access Card, Military I.D., Veterans Service Organization Card (VFW, AmVets, DAV, FRA, American Legion or MOAA), or discharge papers.
