Pssst! I already posted about educational freebies for Veterans’ Day, if you are interested in that, too.
Veterans’ Day, which is always celebrated on November 11, falls on Wednesday this year. Numerous businesses will offer freebies to veterans on the 11th.
Pay attention to the offer details. Some offers are not valid on the 11th, but may be valid on an earlier (or later) date. I quickly skimmed the site and I saw offers that were only valid on the 9th (or 10th, etc.). Also, offers may have a time limit (such as Noon to 3:00 pm) on their set date.
Some offers are available across several dates. So, if the 11th gets booked up, you can still enjoy some freebies on another day.
Take note of what is actually being offered for free. For instance, many restaurants require veterans to choose their freebie from a fixed member. Most of the offers (if not all) are for active duty military members as well as veterans, so military retirement is not required to be considered a veteran.
A few offers are extended to dependents. Here are a couple of examples:
Active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans, and their direct dependents receive free Colonial Williamsburg admission for Veterans Day weekend (November 6–11).
Active duty service members, veterans and their family get an 11% discount on qualifying purchases on November 11.
Military.com has an extensive list of offers, so I found it unnecessary to search for and compile a bunch of links. Just visit Military.com/VeteransDay for a comprehensive list.
