Veteran’s Day Freebies!

Thanks on Veteran's Day!

Thanks on Veteran’s Day!

In honor and appreciation of all former and current military and their families on Veteran’s Day, I thought I’d share a few of the well deserved freebies & discounts available just for the vets in celebration of their sacrifice and service. Please note that most will require a military ID or proof of former military service in order to be given, so have it ready when you go to claim your goodies. Some will give it to anyone wearing their uniform. I’d suggest that you call your local restaurant or store to see what proof of service they need before going. Share with your friends & family in the military, even if you can’t benefit from these deals. They deserve it! 🙂

Food:

Chilis- November 11- Free meal from select menu on November 11.

Golden Corral- November 11 only from 4-9pm, free drink and buffet for anyone who has ever served in the military.

Longhorn- Free Texas Tonions and non-alcoholic beverages from November 11-14.

O’Charley’s- Free meal from the $9.99 menu on Veteran’s Day.

Olive Garden- Free meal on November 11.

Outback Steakhouse- Free bloomin’ onion on Veteran’s Day. Also, they are giving a 10% discount on total check from November 12 through December 31!

Red Lobster- Free appetizer with military ID (taxes not included). Good November 11-14.

Starbucks- Free tall brewed coffee to veterans, active military and spouses on Veterans Day. Please call ahead to make sure your local Starbucks is participating.

Non-Food:

David’s Bridal- 20% off of any dress for military brides or one marrying someone in the military through November 15. Make sure to see what proof you need if you are marrying a military man, since I doubt they just take your word for it.

Great Clips- Free haircut for veterans on veterans Day, or you can just stop in for your free haircut card to be used by December 31. A non-military person can pick up the card to be redeemed by a veteran later. They may be available on their Facebook page, as well.

Home Depot- 10% off up to a $500 purchase for veterans on Veterans Day.

JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store- 20% off November 10-15.

Lowes- 10% off for military and immediate family members on Veterans Day.

Meineke- Free oil changes for military and spouses on Veterans Day.

Red Roof Inn- During the month of November, a military ID will get you 15% off of your stay.

I would advise calling ahead to make sure your local restaurant or shop is participating in these specials, but most should honor them. If you are military, which freebie  or discount is your favorite? If not, I’m again encouraging you to share this list with your friends and family who have served. It’s the least you can do!! 🙂

Free photos, anyone??

Kisses!!

I just ordered a couple of the free photo bargains available right now, and thought I’d share the joy. I’m always looking for free or extremely cheap deals on getting my kiddos’ adorable pictures printed, and I’m sure it is the same for most of us who like snapshots of memories.

Walgreens has a free 8X10 photo collage you can order with the code BOOCOLLAGE. You can pick it up in your local Walgreens for free. I order these every time this deal is available, and they always turn out beautifully. This time I got one made of my two little ones in their costumes for a trunk or treat last night. The code expires 11-02-2013.

Shuttefly has 101 free prints, but you do have to pay shipping. I was able to use the code on 99 prints, which saved significantly on the shipping costs (they go up at 100 prints). It cost me $6.49, tax included, and they will be shipped right to my house. The code is SPOOKY. It expires 11-01-13, so hurry to get this great bargain!

If you miss the deadline on the 101 free prints, you can take advantage of the 50 free prints code 50FREEPRINTS. It doesn’t expire until 11-17-13. 🙂

I printed the photos I’ve illustrated this little share-a-thon with, among others. What will you use your codes to print? 🙂
