Memorial Day is a day to recall the heroism of America’s veterans, those who have gone to glory and those who are still with us to hear our expressions of appreciation.

Referencing a recent article from the website, there are many ways in which vets will be honored through discounts at stores, restaurants, hotels and more. Here are a few discounts available in the Charlotte area to get started. Visit the Discounts Center for more offers.

Blue Star Museums

The National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families, Joining Forces, MetLife Foundation and museums across the country are collaborating on the second annual Blue Star Museums program. From Memorial Day through Labor Day, museums around the nation will offer free admission to all active duty, National Guard and Reserve military personnel and families. The Mint Museums and the Museum of the New South are participating in Charlotte.

Boston Market

Congress created National Military Month, spanning the entire month of May, to “provide a period encompassing both the history and recognition of our armed services with an in-depth look at the diversity of its individuals and achievements.” Military personnel or veterans showing their identification at Boston Market get 10% off their dine-in restaurant order.

Home Depot

All veterans are eligible for Home Depot's 10% military discount from May 22 to June 1 with a Department of Defense-issued ID, a DD214 or a Veterans driver’s license. This discount is good for veterans on July 4th and Veterans Day, too.


Active military veterans and spouses who buy a drink at Hooters on Memorial Day get 10 free chicken wings.


Veterans can enjoy a 10% discount on their purchases from Lowe's on Memorial Day. This discount is also valid for the 4th of July and Veterans Day.
