Some of us (me!) don't like to ask and very rarely do places advertise it. I know there are great deals out there - discounts, special military rates at amusement parks/special events, and what-not.
What places do you know that offer military discounts? Please include whether this is only on certain dates, %age amount, etc. Did you take a trip that was really "Military Friendly?" Share the info! We can all use it!
(Remember to always have your ID on you and it never hurts to ask (even though I am always hesitant to do so myself). Many hotels have a discounted "government/military" rate but if you call they often have a special "active duty military" rate. Most amusement parks offer a generous discount so check their website or call to find out in advance. Nearly all airlines offer a military rate but you have to call to book. They also often have one or two seats reserved at this rate on each flight so if a flight is booked online there just may be a seat available. Doesn't hurt to call and ask right?)
I hope this can help you and keep that ID handy!
For all you coupon clippers and deal-searchers out there:
You know I LOVE Money Saving Mom but I also found a coupon site that focuses on military-related savings! Please check her out - she's a military spouse as well trying to help out other military spouses. Can't go wrong there! Her site is Military Wives Saving.
Check 'em out and save some more money! If you know of great sites like these that can help military spouses post them and I'll check them out.
