Veteran’s Day is November 11th and many companies are showing their respect for our brave men and women by offering special deals, freebies, and discounts.
Facebook just launched a page dedicated to “…bring(ing) together resources and information to help the millions of military personnel, veterans, and families stay connected and informed.”
A recent post on the “U.S. Military on Facebook” page explains how to use Facebook video chat in order to stay in touch with those away from home. The page also spreads the word about military events and activities.
Starting on November 11th, 2011, no-contract cell phone plan provider Virgin Mobile is launching their Deployed Military Program. This generous offer lets deployed military members keep their phone numbers, keep their current accounts, and also keeps their account free from any charges. See our post about how we saved $100/month switching from the iPhone 4 on AT&T to the LG Optimus on Virgin Mobile.
Here are the highlights of the plan:
- Your account will not expire.
- Your account will not incur any new charges.
- Your registered payment method (i.e. your credit/debit card or PayPal account) will not be charged.
- Any credits, bonuses, or special awards will remain in your account.
If you are a veteran or an active military member, you may want to hold off on eating on November 10th, because on Veteran’s day, there are nearly 20 restaurants giving free or discounted meals to fill you up on the 11th.
Some of our favorites offers are:
- Free 6″ sub at Subway for veterans
- Free lunch from 11 am – 2 pm at Texas Roadhouse for all active, retired or former U.S. military.
