Military.com Launches America's Military Discounts Directory
Corporate America Expresses Appreciation to Military Personnel, Veterans & Family Members
SAN FRANCISCO, CA. – Military.com, the largest online destination for the military community, today announced the launch of America’s Military Discounts Directory to connect Servicemembers, Veterans, and their families to valuable savings on quality products and services. America’s Military Discounts Directory, located at www.Military.com/DC, makes it easy for the military community to identify patriotic companies offering savings to those who have answered the call to serve.
The concept of ‘military discounts’ has waned from its height in the post-WWII era, but recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan have inspired renewed appreciation for the service and sacrifice of today’s military community. Indeed, the new discounts reflect a desire by corporate America to do their part to say “thank you for your service.” Military-friendly companies can list their discounts in the Military.com Discounts Directory at no cost. Military.com membership is also free of charge.
“We salute companies that have stepped up to demonstrate their support for America’s military community in this tangible way,” said Christopher Michel, CEO of Military Advantage, which operates Military.com.
One such patriotic company, Advance Auto Parts, offers a 10% discount on online purchases and promotes free car check-up services, which can be especially helpful to military family members who ‘hold down the fort’ at home while a Servicemember is deployed.
“Advance Auto Parts has quite a number of stores near a Military base,” said Phil Akin, the Director of Marketing for Advance Auto Parts, “ so we thought this Military Discount would be just a small way of letting the troops and their family members know we are so very proud and thankful for what they do for us everyday!” Additional companies offering discounts include Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, American Airlines, Avis Rental Car, Jeep, 1800Flowers.com, Amtrak, Kawasaki and many others. The Military.com Discounts Directory includes a mix of savings for online purchases as well as printable coupons or offers that apply at stores, amusement parks or restaurants. Eligibility and conditions for use are described for each discount. In some cases, discounts are open to Veterans and Retirees as well as Servicemembers and families with a valid military ID card.
