Veterans Day is on Friday November 11, which means there are many great deals to be had both online and in stores. When it comes to Veterans Day deals, a lot of places offer either freebies or deep discounts if you are military. Whether you are an active duty military member or you are retired and a veteran, you can find many great freebies and deals throughout Veterans Day. What is even better is that some deals even run through the entire week or weekend of Veterans Day.
While we already told you about the retail deals and the restaurant deals, we thought it would be a good idea to give you all of the deals in one place. A mega deals list if you will which combines all of the deals and freebies found for Veterans Day in one place.
It is a good thing to remember as well that some of these deals will require proof of service in order for you to get them, so make sure you carry your military ID card with you or other proof of your service with you.
All of these deals are for military personnel only, unless stated otherwise, meaning you have to be active duty, retired or a veteran to get all of these deals. Also, all of these deals are on Veterans Day unless otherwise specified in the post.
