I added some deals last night, so you may want to take another look!
Here’s a list of Myrtle Beach Veterans Day freebies, discounts, and events for Sunday, November 11, 2018 (unless otherwise noted). I’m sure I missed some, but we’ll be adding them as they come in, so check back often.
Keep in mind that almost all of these are national deals that are only good at participating locations (i.e., call before making a special trip).
Most deals are good for veterans and active military personnel. To take advantage of them, you’ll need to show a valid military or veteran’s ID. The requirements will vary by restaurant, so don’t forget to read the fine print.
Want us to highlight your event or give it a prime spot at the top of this list? Email me about sponsoring this post: firstname.lastname@example.org.
