    Question Military discounts

    Advertisements
    Do you think it's right for someone who is not in the military and not married to someone in the military to claim military discounts?

    Discuss.

    How could they?





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

    I think so, but then again at some places, military discounts are the same discount as Senior, Kama'aina(hawaii resident), resident, etc....lol!

    I guess you mean without a valid ID card ( since technically odd can get a discount but she is neither married nor in the military)
    It doesn't really bother me. I'm with Elizabeth how can they, since most stores make you show a card.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    meh. i think there are worse things they could be doing. when i was separated i still had my military id and i used it for discounts where applicable. i think when i was divorced i still did it too, but not long thereafter bc my purse got stolen.

    i never used in a sense where i would get praise or better service though. i used it mainly at a clothing store that gave 10% off.

    I've heard of g/f's who claim military discounts. I just don't think it's right. That's only MY opinion though.

    One of our friends was given a military discount on her wedding dress at David's Bridal, since her fiance is active duty navy.

    I actually know a lot of places that don't even ask for the ID surprisingly. I suppose if they don't and a g/f or whatever gets the discount that's on them

    i never did that and can't figure how they'd do that if they didn't have an id.
