Not All Veterans Day Deals and Discounts Are Created Equal
So many things to keep in mind when taking advantage of these deals. Some are straight up freebies, like coffee at Starbucks or donuts at Dunkin’ Donuts. Some have fine print, like Boston Market where you get a free meal as long as you buy a meal as well. Some are only specific menu items, like appetizers or desserts.
So I wouldn’t expect to get a full sit down meal at a steakhouse for a family of 4 for free, ya feel me?
You Won’t Be the Only One Taking Advantage of the Deals
Also, if you live near a military installation or in any area with a high veteran population, expect to wait. And I mean WAIT. You’ll do well to go out to dine a little off of the normal dining times. That’ll save you some time. Many of these restaurants won’t take reservations on Veterans Day because of the heavy foot traffic.
Last But Not Least
Veterans Day lands on a Sunday this year. Some businesses will observe on Sunday, while others will wait until Monday, the government observance day.
