Military Discount

Hey Guys, I don't know if this is the right thread, and seeing as it's my first post I'm still learning the ropes. I am a Specialist in the US Army, and I wanted to know people's thoughts about asking vendors for a military discount.

Do you think it's alright to ask vendors, reguardless if they say yes or no? Some vendors will come strait out and give one. Just wanted some feedback. Thanks.

Re: Military Discount

If you don't ask you won't get it.

I ask for a discount & I'm not active duty or retired.

Re: Military Discount

Dunno about the states, but in Canada they usually have a special sticker/sign (its the same sign across the country) AND there's actually a website (www.cfdiscounts.ca WFS)with all the discounts listed, for what store, and what the discount implies. Maybe you could inform yourself if there is such a thing.

Re: Military Discount

Absolutely you should ask. Some companies advertise it; but most won't give it out unless you bring it up.

Re: Military Discount

Sweet. Thanks for all the replies! Just to let you all know, I just ordered a couple of hundred pounds of bumpers from Alf at therubberman. He was great to talk to, was (I thought) quite generous, and supportive of service members. Anyway, I should have them when I come home on RnR in a week or so. I'll let you guys know how everything turns out!
