Every veteran or service member has been faced with whether or not they want to ask for the military discount at select retailers and restaurants. Maybe it’s painless at a famously patriotic stop like Lowes or Home Depot, or maybe it’s less advertised and more awkward.
Do you go for it? Do you ask for the discount? It can’t hurt, right?
As you may imagine if you’ve been following Terminal Lance for a while, I’m with Abe on this one. If a business wants to give me 10-15% off my purchase because I wore camouflage or whatever, that’s their problem and my gain. Life is hard enough, I’ll take what I can get. Maybe it’s awkward for some, but I went to Iraq twice and I grew up poor as hell.
You think I’m too good to take advantage of the world’s largest corporation giving me 10% off a new iPad? Hell no I’m not.
If you’re anything like me, you may appreciate this comprehensive list of places you can shamelessly play the Veteran card.
