Memorial Day Freebies

As a thank you to the men and woman who serve our country, local businesses are offering some nice discounts on this Memorial Day.

For those dining out, Boston Market is taking 25 percent off any family meal, and Red Robin is offering a free appetizer with any $10 purchase.

If you're working around the house, both Home Depot and Lowe's are offering 10 percent off purchases. Show your valid military ID to get the deal before May 27th.

The Gold & Diamond Source is also honoring the day with discounts. For those who have served, they say they'll match any gift card purchase up to $1,000. For all other customers, they're matching up to $500.

And for family fun, the Lowry Park Zoo is offering free admission to active duty or retired military personnel who show a valid ID. The freebie is good for as many as three direct dependents as well.

Universal Orlando is also offering a discount for active duty and retired members of the military. Those who buy a one-day park-to-park pass can get two more free days to spend there. A valid military ID is required.
