Armed Forces Day discounts

A list of corporations offering good deals

By Ranger Staff on May 14, 2020

Armed Forces Day 2020 will be like no other for obvious reasons. In past years, many U.S. companies offered military discounts on Armed Forces Day as a thank you for your service. Because of COVID-19, corporations and small businesses are experiencing difficult times, so it is not quite business as usual. However, an Internet search did find national companies who regularly offer military discounts or have added one for May's Military Appreciation Month. Some of those are listed below.

One more thing, because the South Sound is home to so many veterans, soldiers, airmen, reservists and National Guard, there are plenty of small business owners who offer military discounts as a regular part of their business plan. So before you buy your next take-out meal or purchase a new refrigerator, be sure to ask about discounts for you.
