Veterans Day Meal Deals and Freebies

Veterans and active-duty military members can practically eat free all Veterans Day Weekend long, and there are a few deals to be had for civilians too.

I subscribe to the promotional emails of hundreds of companies so you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless. But some offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales, and freebies – which I collect and organize here and on our deals page.

Note: Expiration dates are in brackets.

For everyone

  • National parks: Free admission [11/10 – 11/12 only].
  • Saks Fifth Avenue’s Off 5th: 25 to 50 percent off clothing and shoes for the whole family plus handbags, jewelry, and other accessories during the Veterans Day Sale in stores [11/7 – 11/13]. Off 5th is Saks Fifth Avenue’s discount chain. Unlike their competitor, Neiman Marcus’ Last Call, Off 5th doesn’t sell online, but it’s still a good place to find designer garb at deep discounts if they have locations near you.

For military families or friends

  • Outback Steakhouse: 10 percent off your entire check [11/13 – 12/31].

For veterans and active-duty military personnel

Note that most of these offers require a military ID or other proof of service.
