Military families receive discounts to movie theatres, national parks and museums. In addition, active military members are eligible to use expired manufacturer coupons up to six months after expiration, as part of the Troopons program. Many companies, including clothing manufacturers, car makers and electronics companies, offer discounts to soldiers.
MilitaryBenefits.info keeps an updated list of hundreds of companies offering coupons and discounts to soldiers, military families and veterans. Most coupons are listed as sales discounts, but companies often extend their greatest offers to military families. For example, BuildaSign.com offers free customizable banners for military families celebrating the homecoming of loved ones from service. Since 2008, the service has given away more than 300,000 banners.
