You know, I really wish I knew where I could find that…
With the world going more and more digital and the need or desire for social distancing on the rise, I’ll bet many of you are wondering about the best sites for shopping online as a Veteran. In this article, I am going to discuss several sites that offer excellent shopping options for Veterans.
The first (and probably most obvious) site I am going to mention here is Amazon.com. Of course, I am betting that, unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of decades, you have heard Amazon. But, did you know that Amazon offers a military discount for their Prime membership? For many of us, this is an amazingly good deal at the regular price of $119 per year because we have friends and family all across the country (or world), and we like to send them things from time to time.
The discount for U.S. Veterans, Active-Duty, Reserve, and Guard troops is $40 off, so; you get Amazon Prime, which includes FREE shipping for eligible purchases, exclusive deals, unlimited reading, streaming of movies, T.V. shows, and music, and more, for $79 per year! Oh, by the way, you can choose to join Amazonsmile (FREE), and they will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to the charity of your choice (they have over 1 million qualified charities to choose from!)
Okay, enough about the mogul of online sales, you don’t need to read my stuff to know that Amazon is one of the best shopping sites online. Here is a list of over 400 more websites that offer discounts for active and retired military personnel. So, without further ado, here, in alphabetical order by services offered, is a list of some of the best sites for shopping online as a Veteran. The companies listed here provide discounts, rebates, or cashback to all active and retired military personnel. By the way, for your convenience, the big links will take you to Amazon’s site for each of those categories. ENJOY! And for more Free stuff for Veterans, Check this out!
So, there you have it, over 400 websites (410 if you were counting) that offer discounts, rebates, or benefits for active and retired military service members. This list isn’t even half of all the discounts out there! Bottom line is this, no matter where you go, if you ask for a military discount, the chances are pretty good that you will get one!
