Veterans and active-duty military personnel can snag free meals starting today. Plus, everyone gets into national parks and other public lands for free this weekend.

I’ve subscribed to the promotional emails of 500 companies and brands so that you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless, but a handful offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales, and freebies – which I collect and organize for you here.

Veterans Day isn’t till Friday, Nov. 11, but I wanted to give you a heads-up on the holiday’s deals. Some start as early as today, and others go through Tuesday, Nov. 15!
