While most people associate the month of November with Thanksgiving, there’s another federal holiday around this time of year: Veterans Day. Held annually on November 11, Veterans Day is designed to honor our nation’s military veterans. If you’re a veteran, you might be surprised to learn that there are several perks available to you, as well as other military veterans, on this federal holiday. In this post, you’ll learn more about some of the top 2019 Veterans Day perks.
Free Workout at Planet Fitness
The popular gym franchise Planet Fitness offers free workouts to veterans on Veterans Day. Whether you’re looking to run on the treadmill or lift weights, you can exercise for free at a local Planet Fitness on Veterans Day. There’s no obligation to purchase a membership. Rather, all veterans are given free access to the gym’s equipment on this federal holiday.
Free Admissions to 9/11 Memorial
If you happen to be in New York City on Veterans Day, you can visit the 9/11 Memorial for free. The 9/11 Memorial typically charges an entry fee of $15. While it’s well worth the cost, veterans are given free entry on Veterans Day.
Free Meal at Chili’s
You can also take advantage of a free meal at Chili’s on Veterans Day. On Nov. 11, 2019, all veterans and active military servicemembers will receive a free meal at Chili’s.

Just remember to tell your server that you are a veteran in order to receive the 100% discount on your meal.
Free Coffee at Starbucks
Do you enjoy drinking coffee? If so, consider taking a trip to your local Starbucks on Veterans Day. All participating Starbucks in the United States offer a free “tall” coffee to veterans on this federal holiday.
Membership Discount at BJ’s Wholesale
You can even score a membership to BJ’s Wholesale at a discount price on Veterans Day. BJ’s Wholesale is offering a 30% discount on membership fees. A one-year membership typically costs $50, so by using this promotion, you can save about $15 off an annual membership.
Free Haircut at Great Clips
There’s no better time than Veterans Day to get a haircut. Great Clips is running a promotion that rewards veterans and their family members with a free haircut card on Veterans Day. Even if you don’t get the haircut on Veterans Day, you can save the card for use at a later date. However, you’ll need to visit Great Clips to receive the free haircut card.
