Veterans Day 2016 falls on Friday November 11, with the entire week being full of deals and discounts. Some places have decided to extend Veterans Day deals to the entire week of the holiday, while other places have decided just to make the deals for Friday since that is actually Veterans Day.
If you are a Veteran you might not know about all of the cool deals and discounts you can get in honor of you signing up to fight for this country. You can get nice freebies, such as free meals or desserts and you also can get discounts on some of the biggest brands and items around. We thought it would be a good idea to put out a retail and services list of all the freebies, deals, and discounts that are happening this year for Veterans Day. You will find many of these deals are nationwide, but some deals are from more regional businesses.
Typically if you want to get in on one of these deals, you will just have to bring your military identification with you, so make sure you have that handy before going out on Veterans Day to score some cool deals. Here is our comprehensive list of Veterans Day retail and service deals for 2016, and this list will be updated as more information and deals become available.
