Getting Military Discounts & Deals in Stores and Restaurants

couple shopping

Our Veterans Advantage Members report that they have the advantage of using their VetRewards Card ID to securely redeem military discounts as a valid military ID, without having to have a government-issued military ID or using their sensitive military documents, such as the DD214. offers hundreds of top retailers and leading travel providers that publically advertise their military discounts redeemed with the VetRewards Card. However, some establishments are known to offer military discounts or special freebies with only some kind of valid military ID. Unlike Veterans Advantage's military discounts, these are not generally advertised offers. Also, some chains leave this to the franchise owner's discretion. So deals can vary from location to location. And, unlike Veterans Advantage discounts, they may not be available every day. You need to ask!

Military & Veterans Life

Cover Story: How & Why WeSalute Was Founded 25 Years Ago

WeSalute founders Scott and Lin Higgins have spent a lifetime in the military community, from Scott’s combat service in Vietnam and the service of Lin’s father in WWII, to serving families and veterans through the creation of memorials and parades as part of charitable and government initiatives. It was this lifetime of service that led them to establish WeSalute, originally founded as Veterans Advantage, and to continue giving back.
