Military Discounts

We are vacationing in a resort town and dh always asks if a place has a military discount whenever we are checking out. The discounts here have been awesome! Some places nearly 50% off! Back at home, nearly everyone is military. So if a place offers a military discount, it's usually 5 to 10%. I'm not complaining -- any discount is awesome and no discount is fine too. But it just surprised me here to see such big discounts. So...what's the biggest discount you've ever received?

40$ worth of buffalo meat for free. I went to a farm to pick up some buffalo meat, was talking to the lady and she handed me the bag and said "For you, no charge!" She said because my husband was deployed that she needed to keep the family taken care of too!

Only 10%.....but while my dh is deployed right now, I'm staying back at home with my parents. We are stationed in Texas but my family lives in Chicago. There is BARELY any places around here that give military discounts. Probably because the closest base is almost 4 hours away.

I have saved multiple thousands of dollars at Walt Disney World, between the tickets and the room discounts. Yes, thousands. We always stay at the Polynesian Resort at WDW, right across the lake from the Magic Kingdom and stay in a room that is regularly $600 per night for $360 with the 40% off a deluxe military discount. And the 4 Day Park Hopper tickets that are normally over $400 per person are $154. Thats a pretty whopping savings every time we go.

LOVE all the military discounts...free admission to Busch Gardens was probably the best:)  My husband went to a museum earlier this week with his brother and his dad, and Jeff got in for free!
