Are you a member of a military family?
If you or a member of your immediate family serves or has served in the armed forces, there are lots of businesses that want to show their appreciation.
Here’s a round-up of a few that we discovered:
Free museum admission: Visit Blue Star Family to search for museums offering free admission to military members. Some offer the perk year-round, others just during the summer months. Check back for updates.
Busch Gardens and SeaWorld: Here’s To The Heroes is Anheuser-Busch’s way to give back to military families. Military personnel and up to three direct family members are treated to complimentary single day admission to a selection of theme parks in Florida and elsewhere.
Save on everything: Military.com gathers information on discounts and deals for all manner of goods and services for armed service members. Some of the current deals include discounts at Banana Republic, Lowes, Auntie Anne’s, Weight Watchers and The Body Shop.
