Seems like every year around the same time I am infected by the 'finding the discount'-bug. Lori, you too, right? Well, I might have taken the 'addiction' a step further....
I had high standards:
"I shall find all the FREE Veterans Discounts" - But I found that there are so many variations of discounts and I really found that best for me would be to list them all. So I started: The other difficulty was giving credit to where I found the discounts, noticing that there were lots of website listing the very same discounts...Best solution: going to find my own. Basically everyday before Veterans Day I am adding the fantastic and the NOT-SO great discount, since any little bit helps and in this economy even a small discount is better than none.
Lots of business have ongoing discounts make sure you ask! Even if they do not have one advertised. without further ado here is my list as of 11/5 (go to militarydutystations-blog.com to get the actual and growing list)
