Veteran’s Day sales are happening now. Retailers will take any excuse to hold a sale, and this year, they’ll offer discounts and coupons on regularly-priced items and clearance starting from the weekend before Veteran’s Day and ending as late as the weekend after the memorial. It’s likely that you’ve already seen a few of these deals, and they’re continuing to get better as the big day comes closer.
Many stores give out extra special deals for veterans as long as they bring their military ID or proof of service. Check with local stores to see if they’re participating. If you’re looking to get some early shopping in, here are some of the places you should visit.
