In one day, I saved 10% at IHOP, 10% at Dick's Sporting Goods, and 20% at Sports Clips.

There's already a thread on this...somewhere..

Panda Express at Culebra/1604 told me they stopped the discount recently.

it could be just that one. I went there on the 4th of July and used the buy one entree and two drinks and get a free entree free coupon and they refused to accept it because it was a holiday. I pointed out that the coupon said USE ANY DAY (it was in all caps on the coupon) and they still refused. I told them they'll never see me in there again and I have no intention of ever going back. I can see trying to remain competitive in today's market, but that was just rude and dishonest. I'll check out the inside 410 just north of Marbach one some night when I'm working and see what they do. They've always had the 20% off for military every time I went.

do you know if dependents can get that 10% off at Dick's too? My son likes that store and he still has an ID for a couple more months. and thanks for reminding me about Panda Express. We just went to the Potranco location the other day and not only did they stop offering a 10% military discount but they screwed up the order three times (you have to be special to suck that bad) and the grease they fried the shrimp in was so disgusting that it actually made my wife's orange juice taste bad. I don't know what happened to them in the past month or so, but it was seriously sucking monkey butt.

Quiznos at 151/410 offers military discount on Tuesdays.

And RD, that Panda at Potranco has been sub-par for months imo! Can they at least get the graffitti off the sign out front?

Possibly, I only have a green IRR ID, not the Active Duty CAC ID, so I'd try it out.

Aeropostale (clothing store) offers 10% all purchases.

A gripe I do have about Ripleys here in San Antonio is that they only offered us $1.00 off last night. No thanks.

At the Ripleys in Myrtle Beach, SC the past several years (including 2008) they gave us 75% off. Huge difference.

Last time I checked a seaworld ticket was like what 40 something? Well for military and dependents it's free once a year. My usual schedule is take my son and wife to Sea world for free, make a pitstop at the Bud house, drink 4 beers free. Have fun all day, eat some ribs-stop at the bud house again in the afternoon drink 4 more beers then go about till it closes, doesn't get any better than that. But, let me tell you about a deal you can't pass up.

Walt Disney Florida is offering 1 military member a free 5 day pass to all the parks. Then 99 dollars for atleast 5 family members or friends. The Shady green resort on the resort is also for the military 35 dollars a night. Offer ends December 23rd, I'm going . The 99 dollars for family members includes 5 tickets one for each park a savings of gazillions of dollars...so yah its a great deal.
Hello, My name is Shannon and my family and I are planning a trip to San Antonio this summer to visit my father plus to enjoy the river walk and sea world. I was checking out their web page and didnt see anything about military and if military and dependents of Active Duty and discounts. We were there 3 years ago and got in free. Are they still doing free admission once a year?

Thanks
