Searching for and Redeeming Coupons
Adding / Uploading Coupons
While you don't have to be a member to search for coupons or stores, we do ask that you join Military.com in order to view the coupon details / redemption details. These great deals and discounts are just some of the many advantages to becoming a Military.com member.
If you are searching for a coupon for a specific store or brand, and you can not find it using the search bar, you can also try to look up the store or brand using our Stores page. Additionally, you may search our Categories page.
If a coupon has an expiration date, or has been flagged as spam, broken, or not a real discount,, the coupon will be removed from our site. Generally speaking, those are only reasons a coupon will be removed.
Some online coupons require the use of a coupon code. A coupon code is a short string of letters and/or numbers that you must enter into the store site in order to receive the associated discount. Typically you enter the coupon code on the shopping cart page, or as one of the steps in the check out process.
It is easy to make typos or confuse letters and numbers, such as the letter O and the number 0, or the letter I and the number 1. Therefore, it is a good idea to copy the coupon code from our site and paste it into the appropriate box on the merchant's site.
Many discount offers do not have a coupon code associated with them. For these, there is often a special link, and simply clicking on our link is all that is necessary to receive the discount. Sometimes you are taken to a landing page that describes the discount you will receive, but sometimes you will have to click through to other pages before you see the special sale or discount pricing we describe. Other times, the link will register your online coupon, but you will not see the discount until you add the item(s) to your shopping cart and then view the shopping cart.
The process of submitting a coupon is quite simple. You can upload a coupon to Military.com by going to our simple Share Your Coupon form.
Sign into your Military.com account, then click on the "Know of a great deal? Share it." link on the right of the search bar. You'll be taken to Step 1 of the entry process where you will enter the coupon info. This information includes Coupon URL, Coupon Code, Store Name, Coupon Title, Description, Category, and Expiration Date. There's even a sample coupon on the bottom of the page so you know what information goes where. All of the information we requirefor you to submit a coupon should be readily available wherever you found the coupon.
Once you've entered the data, hit "Submit Deal " at the bottom of the page, and you'll be taken to the Deal Detail page for your deal. And that's it!
Coupons codes are for online purchases and printable coupons are for in-store. A coupon or promotional code is a series of numbers and letters the consumer enters when making an online purchase. The code then subtracts the stated discount on the item.
A printable coupon is much like the ones found in Sunday newspapers, except they can be downloaded and printed at home.
Finally, a Shopping Tip isn't a coupon, but rather a discount or offer that always applies to a store.
Some coupons and discounts require the user to show proof that they are a member of the DoD, Armed Services, or dependent.
A valid Military ID is an identity document issued by the United States Department of Defense to identify a person as a member of the Armed Forces or a member's dependent, such as a child or spouse.
The primary types of U.S. military ID cards being issued today are the CAC (for active duty members of the military), the DD Form 2, and Department of Defense Form 1173, for retirees and dependents. The DD Form 2 is commonly mistaken with the DD 1173 (as they are similar in appearance), however they are two separate forms. The DD Form 2 form number is appended with one of five codes to denote branch of service (A, AF, N, MC, or CG).
