It is officially Nov. 11th 2019, and while we should make an effort to honor our veterans (and even active duty military) all throughout the year, Veteran’s day has been chosen as an annual display of our gratitude to all of those who have proudly served our nation and have helped us preserve the freedoms that we hold so dear.
While nearly all Veterans are aware of local events, parades, memorial services, and more taking place in their honor today, what they may not know is that many retail stores, restaurants, and more offer great discounts to take advantage of for both Veterans and even active duty military depending on the merchant. Since we know many of our Daily Caller readers love and respect our military, and are either themselves veterans, or know someone who is, we have decided to compile this article with a list of everywhere veterans and active military can expect to find savings today.
While these discounts in no way can even begin to pay for the sacrifices that have been made through service, it is our hope that they can at least help some of our proud veteran readers and their family members save a few dollars on this fine Fall afternoon.
So without further ado, here are some of well-known discounts that military veterans and active service members can take advantage of (Source: blogs.va.gov):

NOT A VETERAN? HERE ARE SALES ANYBODY CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF:
Looking for a luxury mattress that can support sleepers weighing up to 500 pounds? Saatva is a respected mattress brand with mattresses that feature a hybrid design with an organic cotton pillow top and sturdy coils that won’t sag over time. And Starting on Nov. 12, Saatva is offering $150 off any purchase of $1,000 or more for a limited time.
When I first read about this deal it sounded like a scam, but I checked it out myself, and sure enough you can get flights that normally cost $100’s for just $20-$30 each way. There are tons of fine print terms and certain airports and times of travel that the discount applies to, so don’t think you can get any flight for close to free, but with the discount valid on Black Friday and for most of the beginning of December, it’s worth checking to see if a trip you planned on taking anyways could be found at a huge discount. See a list of all eligible flights for this discount here.
