While many military discounts are aimed at active-duty service members, it’s not hard to find deals that are extended to military spouses as well.

Whether you’re shopping in stores or online, military spouses can take advantage of the following discounts. Don’t forget to have your military ID handy!

Clothing and accessories

We need clothes. But putting together a wardrobe sure is expensive. That’s why military spouses love the discounts offered at stores like Kohl'sOld NavyUnder ArmourDEVIL-DOG DungareesNorth FaceJ.CrewVera BradleyBuckle, and Roxy and many more. Some stores offer discounts both in-store and online while others may not, so it’s best to call or check the website for details.


No wardrobe is complete without footwear. Whether you're shopping online or in stores, you can find great military discounts on shoes at stores like Rack Room ShoesSteve MaddenConverseOOFOS and Clarks.


Have you always wanted to take your family on vacation at Disney World but tossed the idea aside because you thought you couldn’t afford it? Through Disney’s Armed Forces Salute program, military personnel can get discounted tickets to Disney theme parks, as well as discounts off select rooms at Disney Resort hotels. These deals are good for military spouses of eligible service members even without the member being present. (Visit our guide to Disney discounts for military families to learn more.)

Home Depot and Lowes

Owning a house is hard work. There’s always something that needs to be done, whether it’s the grass that needs mowing or pictures that need hanging or appliances that spontaneously break. Then, once you think you finally have a handle on all those home improvement projects, it’s time to PCS and start all over with a different house.

That’s why spouses love the 10% year-round military discounts offered at both Home Depot and Lowes. If your house needs it, Home Depot and Lowes will have it. 


Maybe you want to try to make that awesome Pinterest project. Maybe the kiddos have school projects due soon. Or maybe you want to put together a care package for a deployed loved one. Spouses can head over to Michaels and JOANN for discounts on just about any crafting needs you can think of.


If you’re looking to upgrade your devices, Apple offers a Veterans and Military Purchase Program that includes savings on eligible products and accessories. Immediate family members who live in the same household as the service member also qualify for the discount.


Deployments are a regular part of military life. And that means homecomings are a regular part too. Ready to celebrate the end of a deployment with a memorable homecoming? BuildASign offers free homecoming banners to welcome your special service member home.

Amusement parks

Who doesn’t love taking a family vacation to Universal Studios or Knott’s Berry Farm or Dollywood? Amusement parks are a fun way for military families to spend time together, whether on vacation, celebrating a homecoming, or heading out for a random day trip.

Do you have an amusement park in your area? Make sure you call ahead, check their website, or visit your local ITT office to ask about military discounts. (And visit our list of popular amusement parks that offer discounts to military families.)

Movie theaters

Do you finally get to have a date night and you need something to do after dinner? Go to the movies. Is it a rainy day and the kids are bored? Take them to the movies. But don’t forget your military ID because some movie theaters like Cinemark offer military discounts on tickets to dependents. 

Local discounts

National brands and chains aren’t the only businesses that offer military discounts. Local businesses also like to show their support for the military by providing discounts, especially in cities with a large military presence. Don’t know what businesses in your area offer military discounts? Your best bet is just to ask, “Do you have a military discount?” It never hurts to ask, and you might end up pleasantly surprised with a great deal.
