military discounts

If you are in the military – Active Duty, medically retired, retired, or a dependent – you know that sometimes you can get some great discounts by flashing that ID around. Movie theatres, museums, and restaurants all around the country have awesome discounts.
 I have found mine to be especially useful at outlet malls! I’m familiar with the outlets in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, SC, and Williamsburg, VA and I know they have some good ones. Always ask!
I got a Vincent polo from Ralph Lauren for $22 because they had 20% off (it was a simple dark grey, totally can be worn whenever).  IZOD offers $10 off if you spend $50 so I got Vincent 2 IZOD polos and 2 pairs of flat front shorts! Not to mention that I totally made out at the Bali store and got 3 bras ;) Whoot whoot!
I mean – how awesome?!
The Melting Pot in Myrtle Beach also has a 20% discount – it’s called America’s Heroes (how sweet!?)


Anyway here are some more that might have you save a couple pennies here and there (always ask and must show ID. I do not guarantee that all the locations have discounts) :
