Veterans can finally get hundreds of discounts by using a new ID card made by Military Veterans ID through their web site: www.DD214ID.com. For many years almost every American company has offered our Military Veterans discounts, usually a minimum of 10% off, but there was a catch. Our Veterans had to show an (photo) ID card to receive the discount, except there was nowhere for a (non-retired) Veteran to get a photo ID.
Places like Home Depot, Lowes, Disney World Resorts/ Disneyland, Marriot, Best Western, Ramada, Advance Auto, Meineke Auto, American Airlines, O’Reilly, Barnes & Noble, and Red Robin all offer discounts, just to name a few companies.
Enter Military Veteran ID, LLC, a new private company that makes custom plastic photo ID cards one at a time, only for Veterans.
Veterans simply get out their DD214 document (with their SSN and DOB blocked out), make a pdf copy and have a head photo taken (with a smartphone). These two files are uploaded during the Order process. They verify the information, and fill-in the new ID card along with the photo. They accept all major credit cards and Pay Pal for payment; that seems to be a reasonable $14.95. Then, in about a week, the credit card sized ID card comes in the mail to the Veteran. Easy-peezy, as they say.
Our Veterans can now enjoy all the fabulous discounts offered to them just by showing their new Military Veteran ID card. On their website Military Veteran ID has lists of most of the hundreds of major companies offering discounts. They tell me it is not a complete list and they are always adding companies.
(Note: For those who may not know, the DD214 document is an important separation paper given to every person leaving the military.)
Robert L from Jacksonville, NC is a happy Vet using his new card: “I went to my Home Depot and was ordering new kitchen cabinets. I showed my new Military Veteran ID card and they happily offered me 10% of my entire purchase, on the spot! Wow. And I was proud I was recognized as a Marine Vet”.
Now, any Veteran can get an ID card through Military Veteran ID and proudly SHOW his or her card and ASK: “Do you allow for a Veteran Discount?” According to Military Veteran ID about 99% of the time the answer is a gracious and grateful, “YES!”
