I can vouch for this also.

Our local Apple store gives a discount too. I can't remember if it is 10 or 15%. Some NY & Co Stores have military discounts.

Always ask!

Chicago is a great place for military discounts. We went last summer so I'll try to remember what they all were. I think the only thing my DH paid full price for was the one time we rode the city bus. He was free for the Aquarium and Hancock Building. The WHOLE family was free to the Children's Museum. He was either free or discounted on the water taxi. We didn't know until it was too late that there is a USO on Navy Pier where you can get discounted tickets for the Navy Pier rides.

The CiCi's Pizza in Wilmington, NC used to give us a discount - not sure if all do.

Papa Murphy's in Junction City, Kansas also used to give a discount but the one in Bozeman, Montana wouldn't so it must be up to the store.

The Kansas specific store at The Legends in Kansas City, Kansas gave a discount.

I ask most places when we travel. Worst they can say is no.

Yes, The Apple Store gives military (Ret. & AD) discounts, but they have always been about 5% for us in Northern VA. They offer the same discount online, but you have to go through www.military.com first, and then the discount is automatically applied once you click-on the "Apple Store" icon.

Old Country Buffets give 10% off to the entire party.

Anyone know of any other attractions in Gatlinburg with a military discount? Ober Gatlinburg tram, go karts, Reagan Terrace fun park?
Not Gatlinburg but Pigeon Forge.... Dollywood gives a good discount to active duty as well as retirees.

This does not include retirees.

The end of June we got a really good deal at the Courtyard by Marriot in Downtown Chattanooga. A $149. room was $87.

If you go to the main office of Tanger Outlets with your mil id you can recieve a coupon booklet good all year.

ToysRus gives a 10% discount - I have never used it however a friend of mine said it worked for her

IHOP gives a discount although I can't remember how much.

Patriots Point in Charleston SC is free for Active duty in uniform. Dependants recieve a discount although I can't remember how much

Universal is also giving away free 2 day tickets for military members

Hey! Your best deals will be with the Ripley's attractions, they are really good to the military....the aquarium was only $12 for our family of 4 and a regular price ticket is more than that. The Ripley's attractions also offer an all inclusive pass for $17 or $18 that gives you admission to the aquarium, both of their mini golf courses (one in PF/one in Gat), the Believe it or Not Museum, Guiness World Records, Mirror Maze, Haunted Adventure and it seems like there is something else.....I think it's 8 attractions in all so that's a super deal if you have the time for them.

Dollywood gives a pretty good discount, just google Dollywood military discount for info.

Most of the other attractions will give you $1 or $2 off. It never hurts to ask!

The Ripley's museums in San Antonio had great discounts as well. My SIL paid over $150 for her family of 5 to get a "combo pack" that included three different Ripley's "attractions" (belive it or not, wax, and another one I can't remember). Our family of 4 paid just $32 total for the same combo pack with our military discount.

The riverwalk cruises offered a discount, we got into Sea World for free, as well as discounts on food, locker rental, and purchases inside SW, we got a discount on tubing, the Almao IMAX film gave us a discount. That's all I can remember for now, but we got discounts at pretty much every place we went in San Antonio, including our hotel and most of our meals.

This isn't so much a discount but a really good freebie. If you have an ako account under self help there are library ebooks and audio books for free.

Also military one source gives free books out. It used to be 10 per year but now it's no limit, first come first serve. Some are nonfiction and there are also fiction and audio books. Most are paperback. It is free to sign up and then it's under the recreation tab on the home page. They mail them to you.

Always ask for a discount, some places don't always do them but will do it as a one time thing if you ask and others it varies by location or local manager.

As long as the Veteran has a Military ID card, they can get the discounts.

Gatorland will give free admission to military member and 20% off up to 6 other tickets, I think. It says you have to get your free ticket voucher from ITT office but when I went to Gatorland and showed my ID for the discount figuring the 20% off was better than nothing, they just gave me my ticket free and I am actually not even the AD member, but the spouse. DH was not with us.

Also, the Michael's craft store in Sumter, SC will give 25% off entire purchase EVERY day to military of dependents. I think other Michael's stores do this on a certain day of the week but Sumter, SC really loves and appreciates their military folks.
