150 Free Veterans Day Meals for 2018
Veterans Day Food Freebies for Military

A listing of 150 Free Veterans Day Meals for 2018! Each year, many Restaurants, Doughnut Shops, and some Grocery Stores offer Free Veterans Day Meals, Appetizers, Desserts and/or Beverages to Veterans and Active Duty Military to honor them and to thank them for their service. Each year, the list of freebies grows larger and larger!

If you're able, I highly suggest that Veterans and Active Duty Military take advantage of the offers at your favorite establishments, because there are so many wonderful options available! You could start at breakfast, take a breather in-between, then head out for lunch, take another breather, then head back out for dinner. Then, if you still have any room left in your stomach, you may even be able to squeeze in a free dessert! Some establishments are offering Free Veterans Day Meals for 2018 on Sunday and/or Monday, so be certain to take advantage of multi-day offers.

Since offers and participation may vary by location, be certain to call in advance and take along one of the types of Military ID required (see my listing at the bottom of this page). If your favorite restaurant(s) are not listed, you can always call them and ask if they're offering any free offers or discounts to Veterans and Active Military for Veterans Day. Most importantly -- Enjoy these days and these Free Veterans Day Meals! You deserve it!

Also, don't forget about the Gift Card Deals that are going on right now! You can save money both ways right now! First, if the Restaurant if offering a Gift Card deal, stop by the restaurant in advance and purchase the $25 Gift Card that comes with a $5 Bonus Card, or the $50 Gift Card that comes with the $10 Bonus Card (whichever one they offer) at the Restaurant that you plan to go to. Then take your member of the Military to the Restaurant that is offering him/her a Free Meal and pay with the Gift Card (you'll likely still have money left on the card to use on another visit).  Now you've got one Free Meal and you still have the $10 Bonus Card to use at a later time (usually beginning Jan 1st). 

While here, you can also print free grocery coupons here from all of the major coupon sites, like Coupons.comSmartSource and RedPlum, plus many more! 

Current and Former Members of the Military,

Thank You for your Service to our Country!

God Bless America
