It's Memorial Day weekend, and you know what that means: Sales! While we're used to seeing red, white, and blue banners all over car dealerships, shopping malls, and grocery stores, if you're a member of the military, you might be able to snag an extra super duper deal this weekend.
Shopping and remembering our service men and women may not seem to go together in the purist sense, but if stores are going to be offering discounts willy-nilly, why not throw in something extra for those who sacrifice so much?
Here's where you can get a great deal, if you're an American hero.
This weekend all military personnel are eligible for a 10% discount on non-special Buy appliances and other products up to $500. Get your lawn chairs here, soldiers. That's active, and veterans folks. So, line up!
More of a Lowe's shopper? Lucky for you they also have a 10% discount for military personnel and their immediate family this Memorial Day holiday.
Go work out for free this weekend, if you've got a military ID. Find a 24 Hour Fitness near you and keep those six-pack abs even while you're back home.
One of the best deals for active duty and veterans, this weekend you can get an annual parks pass for all of our beautiful national parks. Normally $80, this pass will get you, your family, and your vehicle into any park for free, all year round.
Active duty members, reserves, and veterans -- and their spouses -- can all enjoy a discount on a new or used car at their local Chevrolet dealer that includes "Preferred Pricing, most current incentives, a 5-year/100,000 mile Transferable Powertrain Limited Warranty,5 24-hour Roadside Assistance and OnStar® standard for the first six months."
Chevrolet will also donate $100 to Cell Phones for Soldiers when you pick up a vehicle.
And if you must, Hooters is offering free wings to military personnel with id, along with the view.
Do you know of any other great military discounts going on this weekend?
