Every Veterans Day, many businesses provide special deals for active military or veterans. This usually means restaurants offering free meals for those who have served our country, but there are also plenty of retailers that provide discounts on products like home appliances, tech, gear, apparel, and more.

Whether you shop online or in stores, these companies generally require that you confirm your eligibility with some form of military or veteran ID to get a promo code and discount at checkout.
