      Cool! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Sara

    It’s nice to see Starbucks and B&B considering Military Spouses as well. We often forget about the spouse at home who is working a full time job, taking care of the house, and raising the kids alone. This is especially challenging in civilian communities. Cheers to our Veterans and their loved ones, who play a crucial role in keeping our Nation safe.

    • Jamie

      Totally agree! Military wife x8 years. Military life is hard on families so it’s so nice to be recognized.

  7. Kcmiami88

    Every year I go shopping with my hubby on Veterans Day at publix and use the 10% off. It’s awesome! Also usually Home Depot and lowes give 10% as well.

  8. Mrs Mike

    Happy a few are cosidering the spouses too. We support those who go to war and make many sacrifices too .

    • ambership

    Here are some Veterans Day deals that I know of: Veterans get a free haircut or card to use later, & paying customers get a free haircut card to give to a Vet in their life at Great Clips. Sheetz Free 6″ turkey sub , fountain drink and a $7 car wash. Primanti’s is offering a free sandwich. Chili’s is offering a free meal from a selection. Meineke free basic oil change. Denny’s free grand slam breakfast from 5 am to noon. Panera bread 1 free you pick 2. You can call ahead to find out if your local places are offering them. This is all I know, but maybe it can help.

    Thanks for posting all of these offers. My dad, husband and brother-in-law are all veterans of three different branches and it is so nice for them to be appreciated on this special day. Your post and these awesome places helps me get a chance to tell them all thanks for all they do and have done for our family!
