    Home Depot discount

    For those of you that did not know (like us): Hubby just got back from HD. Said when he got his wallet out to pay for things he was buying, he shuffled through his cards to get the HD card out. The Cashier saw his VA card and said "That is a 10% discount right there!" He had been shopping there for years and didn't even know about it. So FYI. (Discount for him, more fabric for me!)

    Just talked to a friend and told him about HD; he said he was getting his ID out at Lenscrafters, the guy saw his VA card and gave him a discount. Maybe we should get in the habit of asking if there are any discounts given before we pay. Wouldn't hurt!

    HD and Lowes, both give 10% discount for active and retired military members. Old Navy gives 10% discount on Mondays. Payless give 10% discount any day. We always asked if there is a military discount available. Never hurts to ask.

    My Uncle got a military discount when a group of us were at Old Country Buffet restaurant. He asked about it & they gave it.

    A lot of places give discounts, you should always ask for one. A lot of restaurants and fast foods give Sr. discounts but you have to ask.

    My husband and I have gotten into the habit of asking about the military discount wherever we eat and shop. It's amazing how many businesses do this.

    A lot of places give a military discount. Also teacher discounts. I always carry my teacher ID with me. I ask at most stores. I asked in Sears when I was buying a new stove and they offered me 10 % off. All they can do is say no.

    Where ever you go ask if they give a VA discount. My brother was surprised at how many places do honor the Vet's with a discount. Including Fabric stores- 2nd hand stores-hotels. We took a young friend out to celebrate his 21st birthday at a well known mexican restaurant when he asked the cashier about it she said they did not but she asked us to wait and she got the manager and they now honor the VA discount.

    I always ask about Sr. discount. Even in restaurants. Often the discount we get goes back to the waitress in form of tip. Just like paying things forward.

    Tuesdays are senior day in my town. Discounts everywhere. Some Taco Bells will give a free soda to seniors if you order something and ask for a "senior drink."

    In Fl if you don't have a VA card neither HD or Lowes will accept a DD214.

    Lowes and HD both give military, active duty or retired a 10% discount. HD you have to sign up for it but its just a short little form and entering your phone number. Then at the register, you still need your ID but they have you enter your phone number and you get the discount on everything. love discounts. That's why I like shopping at Hancock Fabrics, I have the first 3 Wed of the month covered. The first and second are senior citizen (you don't have to be 60 or above to qualify) and the 2nd one is military. Both give you an additional 15% off, even on sale items or things that you had coupons for. I try to schedule my shopping then.

    Alot of stores do if you ask. Long John Silvers gives military discounts which I like. Never hurts to ask.

    Ace Hardware does 10% also, plus their cashiers learn their regulars and just automatically know to apply the discount. Plus, with locally owned Ace stores, many will cut prices on items if they can.

    discounts

    Arby's, Taco Bell and Carl's Jr give discounts to seniors and I believe military (you have to ask for it). McDonalds does not.
