For many, the Memorial Day weekend means a time for big sales and bargain hunting as the Summer season kicks off, but more importantly it’s a time to honor and recognize the brave Americans who selflessly served in our armed forces.

Walgreens is offering a weekend Memorial Day discount to all veterans, active-duty military personnel and their immediate family members, including the families of those who lost their lives in service to their country. “Every day we are honored to serve our veterans, military personnel and their families,” said Kristen Vargas, vice president of retail operations at Walgreens. “Memorial Day is an opportunity to pay tribute in this small way to their service, commitment and sacrifice, for which we at Walgreens are deeply grateful.”

Beginning May 28 through May 31, customers with a myWalgreens membership and valid military ID or proof of service will receive 20% off regularly priced products at any Walgreens nationwide.

In addition, here is a list of other retailers that offer military discounts on Memorial Day and all year long.
