Default Mens Fashion: Armed Services Discount

20% Discount at Smart Turnout.com


Armed Services Personnel can receive 20% discount at men's fashion retailer Smart Turnout.com. Smart Turnout is a luxury fashion company with military roots and styling. It's quite cool.

They have a London store in Picadilly but not sure if the code works there. You will have to ask.

Code: MILITARY20

Go to: www.smartturnout.com

Enjoy!

Default Military Discount Site

My experience with military discount - if you don't ask you don't get!

Seem to be more and more sites out there aggregating discounts... google "troopscout" - they've got a pretty good database of deals

Thumbs up Miniature Medals

After searching numerous websites, I found these were the cheapest by far for miniatures (4 ea + p&p), and thought over savvy savers might want to save a few quid:

A good military discount site is rewardforforces.co.uk or forcesdiscount.co.uk
Both seem to have lots of proper discounts..might be able to help with Disney??

Sorry for a late reply, i have only just seen this. Vodafone offer 20% to serving members or family members. A great discount to your bill but you have to apply within 30 days of taking out a contract.
Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.

Default Defence discount card

I have the card from defenc!!!!!!!!!!ervice.
This is the official one backed by the Government Armed services Covenant. (Not to be confused with similar ones.)

Going up to the Army Widows AGM , I noticed at least TWO motorway service stations with big signs on the entrance stating that they supported the Forces and gave a discount to anyone carrying the Defence discount service card.

This has your name and status on it so can also be used as POI. You also get a card that gives you 10% discount at Iceland shops.

Default Kuoni discount for armed forces

Hi all,

I've not looked if anyone else has posted this, so if you have, apologies.

Just to let you know, I've just found out that Kuoni Travel offers a discount for armed forces and also for the Police.

I believe it's between 5% and 7% so not massive but every little helps!
I am employed as a manager in a financial services institution. My views are entirely my own.
