Veterans Day is all about appreciation. Mutual appreciation. That’s why this is a day of great various discounts and freebies a number of businesses are offering to military veterans November 11. Moreover veterans can even receive a free haircut or a card that can be redeemed for a free haircut that is good until the end of the year.
Here’s a quick bird’s eye view on some offers one can find throughout the United States on this great day.
Applebee’s Free Meals For Veterans
Veterans and active-duty service members can choose a dish from Applebee’s free Thank You Meal menu on this special day. There will be seven entrees to choose from, beverage not included. Military ID or proof of service is required. For more information and a list of locations, visit www.applebees.com.
Free Haircut for Veterans
If you aren’t in the military, you can purchase your own haircut on November 11, and you’ll receive a free haircut card to give to an active or retired military member. Nevertheless the free haircut card must be redeemed by December 31, 2014. On the other hand, Great Clips is giving away haircuts to active and retired members of the military throughout the whole day. If you’re a current or former member of the military, all you have to do is head to a Great Clips salon on Veterans Day for a free haircut.
