MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Military.com launched its comprehensive Discounts Channel today, providing the nation's largest resource of military deals and information for service members, veterans and their families.
The Discounts Channel on Military.com features free access for members to a broad range of discounts and information that explains how the discounts work, including requirements for eligibility, as well as general tips for saving money.
"Military families are facing budget cuts that could mean their monthly paycheck won't go as far, so we wanted to make sure they knew about the many companies and businesses offering special deals exclusively to service members and their families," said Ward Carroll, Editor of Military.com. "These discounts provided by the private sector and corporate America can literally save a military family hundreds of dollars in a calendar year."
As commissary prices will go up, military families can find similar products at discount at stores like Walgreens. Additionally, the new Discounts Channel provides timely information such as the Navy Exchange's current price match guarantee that allows families to compare costs at retailers like Target, Sears and Amazon.com against Navy Exchange prices to get the best deal.
The new Discounts Channel includes hundreds of specific military discounts on goods and services as well as general information on how to discover and redeem military discounts. The discounts offered are all national businesses or non-profit organizations.
Local or regional discounts can be found through Military.com's Base Guides.
