WARNING:

I have not checked to see if all of these discounts actually exist. Check ahead of time to save yourself from being embarrassed by believing me. It never hurts to ask before you make any purchase if they give seniors discounts.

Military Discounts

Do you have someone in your family who is a service member, retired military, or veteran? You'll be surprised by the number of hidden discounts out there available for your family, oftentimes in the places you least expect -- if only you had known.

So how do you uncover these discounts? All you have to do is ASK, especially since many are not advertised and there are often no visible signs of a military discount. Make sure to have your or your family member's military ID with you, in case it is required. While it may be a bit daunting to inquire at first, it will become easier each time you do so, and your family will be greatly rewarded for your effort.

To give you a helping hand, our team at MOGUL has gathered some of the wonderful military discounts we've unearthed (thanks to Military Benefits for the initial tips); yet please do note some discounts may vary over time and by location. If there are any more you know about, please add them in the Comments section below, and we'll update this post from time to time!

Remember, you must ASK. And share this with friends and family who would greatly benefit from this!
