Title: Military Discounts List
Post by: Harris on April 14, 2003, 12:55:00
It was mentioned elsewhere on the board that some places in Canada give military discounts.  If you know of a place please post here giving as much details as you can.  ie. Company Name, discount, phone number, location etc...
Let‘s show support for those companies that support us.

Cheers

This summer, when I was being moved around the country like a gypsy by the reserves, I stayed at various different hotels, and almost every single one had some form of a military/government discount. It ranged from $10-$50 a night!

For the Halifax area, the CFB Halifax Base Fund publishes a glossy annual magazine titled "The Canadian Forces in Halifax Regional Municipality - 2003/2004 - Information Directory and Shopping Guide." Offered to all units in the area, it includes advertisements from many local businesses that give military discounts and a 4-page itemized list of those businesses.

muskrat -- perfectly acceptable.  As a member of the military you are a Crown employee and entitled to ask for a government rate.

Some hoteliers may only offer a reduced rate when on government business and subject to other conditions, but I have never been asked this.  I have only been asked to show government ID.

Since I don‘t have my military ID yet, my customs badge has usually sufficed.   ;)

At most Universities and Collages, you sometimes get a free complimentary insult for telling people you‘re in the military.  Insults range from "Babykiller" to "Why does Canada need an army?" to "You‘re in the Canadian Farces?" to "Thank God I‘m a full time student and don‘t have to pay taxes for your salary"

Come to think of it, I try not to tell anyone I‘m in the military unless there is a clear and absolute certainty of a gain (cheap movie tickets, discount camping equipment), I am friends or relatives with the people I‘m telling it too, or I am speaking to people who are actually in the military.  It‘s too depressing to constantly get shot down by people.  

What‘s wierd is the movie theatre in Kingston on Queens I think, gives discounts to Reg Force members but not Reserves.  What‘s wierder is that the Army surplus there doesn‘t give discounts as well... then again, I didn‘t ask...
Title: Re: Military Discounts List
Post by: Danjanou on April 25, 2003, 13:52:00
Regarding hotels/motels you can almost always get some sort of a discount. Almost no one evers pays "rack rate" (the official listed price).

Military or Government discounts would usually apply for any Govt employee with ID or in some cases even a business card. So for those reservists who either don‘t have an ID card yet or for whatever reason would prefer not to identify themselves as military but, like our friendly customs agent, work for some other Government department, this works.

You can also try "corporate discounts", "student discounts", even "seniors" depending on circumstances. It‘s probably a good idea to call first and see which applies or even if there‘s a difference in the discount.  

The reason for this, it costs the hotel money for that room each day (portion of the total mortgage, taxes, utilities, maid etc) whether it‘s rented or not. A good hotel would rather make some profit or at least break even.

Discounts usually apply on weekends, more so that mid week, and other circumstances must be taken into effect, such as how busy the hotel is. Chances of getting a good deal in Toronto now with SARS are excellent (hotels are at 30% occupany instead of the normal 70%). Try getting a room deal during a major holliday, or event are slimmer.

When in doubt always ask, it may save youa few bucks.
Title: Discounts with DND ID
Post by: johnny_boy on August 21, 2004, 00:18:17
Hey, I haven't been sworn in yet (should be soon) but I am curious to know about some potential benefits I have been hearing about. A friend of mine who is in the MP has mentioned that you get 20% or (or something like that) off at McDonalds and other fast food places and other stores have similar discounts for CF members. Is this true and what are some stores that do this?

Title: Re: Discounts with DND ID
Post by: Born2Fly on August 21, 2004, 00:28:25
I don't know about McDonald's, but I do know that some hotels and some car rental companies will give you the "Canadian Government" rate.

You do techincally work for the Federal Government once in the CF, so if you ever have to go away on business, when booking your room, you ask for the Canadian Government rate, and you may get a significant discount.

For example, the Pan Pacific Hotel here in Vancouver, which is pretty much the nicest hotel in the city, usually charges $250-$300 CDN a night. As a Federal Government employee, you can get that same room for $99.   :o

There are some benefits to working in the CF.  ;)


PLEASE check the official policy on this. This is just all the info that I happen to have.

Some places in Edmonton do give a discount, and we have access to cheaper tickets to things like West Edmonton Mall's waterpark through the Rec Centre, however the list is not huge, nor are they places I frequent.   Discount at McDonalds?   First I've heard of it!!!   Check your sources,hopefully they're not pulling your leg by overblowing your expectations.

I have used the discount at McDonalds and got such a negative reaction from the people around me I stopped.

"Why does the military get discounts when  "working" people do not"
"I am a single mother of 3 and I can barely live on welfare and the navy gets all this money and they still get a discount"

Those were some of the comments I heard so word to the wise don't advertise the perks as it only causes resentment.

Places I've been able to get discounts are Surplus stores and hotels.

With the hotels,   the one's that I'm staying at in Calgary an Edmonton I think its a 15% discount at them, I get the discount regardless if I'm there on vacation or I'm working. The one in BC I'm staying at only gives out discounts   to millitary if your working, no discounts if your there for vacation.


And with the ID, I was able to buy things at the PX at Ft Lewis.

OLeary has the right idea, every MFRC should have a list of places that offer a discount to military personnel for their area.

I do have to say one thing, our perks are no where near that of our US counterparts. I spent 6 months working at USCENTCOM in Tampa, FL (yeah, it was a nice ride) and if I had my uniform on, I would rarely have to pay at all for things like coffee, fast food, etc. The McDonald's just outside of the base had a military discount menu and places like the barber shop gave preference to those waiting in uniform.

EDIT: Our Canadian Military ID's did work at most places in the US (Busch Garderns, Disney, MGM, etc..), but not at the PX at MacDill - we had to use our foreign military cards there.

In whole, I think the public appreciation for the military is higher in the US than it is here BUT I like to think that our government takes better care of us than that of the US. Hmmm...sounds like a new string!
Title: Re: Discounts with DND ID
Post by: Spr.Earl on August 23, 2004, 23:45:04
Nearly every year I go South with the Unit for two weeks and nearly always get a discount even with Canadian Military I.D.

A little kicker for you. ;)

In between Dallas and Ft.Worth in Arlington there's this C&W Bar called "Cowboys" which was an old K Mart store,12 bars,30 pool tables,one huge dance floor and a stage big enough to hold a 7 piece band as that was on that night and full of University Students and the local ANG turned us on too it.

When we first got there the youngn's rushed in ahead of us old slow pokes and paid their $5.00,$10.00 ? to get in and we just sauntered up and asked if they gave a Military Discount,I.D. please sure enough we got in free!!!! ;D

Nine times out of Ten in the States you will get a discount in Club's.Disco's and Strip Joints etc and also on accommodation even with Canadian Military I.D.
Many Americans may not know much about us but go out of their way to make us feel at home.

If you are ever travailing through Sea/Tac Airport (Seattle) they have a USO up stairs were you with your family or Solo, can shower,do laundry,sleep and have a good snack (bloody good sangies and cookies) they will wake you up for your flight there are only 3 USO's like this in the States and I forget the other two.

Maybe Maj. Baker can help out with the other two.


Also the USO publishes a book of places to stay all over the world at Military Rates for all Members of NATO, cost's about $10.00 to pick up in the P.X. in the book section.

If you are in the market for seriously good after-market gear, then Drop Zone offers a 20% discount to serving members of the CF.  Yes, their gear is pricey.  But as I've said elsewhere on this forum, assuming that you shop wisely and know what you want, then you get exactly what you pay for.

You can pay repeatedly for sub-standard kit until you get it right, or you can buy correctly from the start and have the gear serve you well throughout your service (and probably your progeny's). 

A word to the knowledgeable.  Those looking for "kit shortcuts" are quite welcome to continue with their self-delusion and repeated disappointment.....

In Halifax, we have a thing called "Wave of Savings" which are for DND personnel and their families.

This list can be viewed at: Wave of Savings (http://www.psphalifax.ns.ca/InformationKiosk/Savings.asp)

This list is searchable by company name or category. Additionally, the list is fairly large as the Trident Navy News paper (http://www.tridentnews.ca) has been working on this list for a number of years.

When I was in Petawawa, Moores sent us all a plastic discount card.  In both Petawawa and Kingston, the MFRC (military family resource centre) has a list of who and were in each area that offers discounts for military members and families.  As for the comment that the reserves don't get the discount in Kingston, that is totally false as I work with several who routinely go to the movies and get the discounts there.  In total, Kingston has about 35 companies that give military discounts excluding hotels and motels.

I'm suprised that PSP in Halifax appears to maintain a massive list, whereas in other regions of the country, discounts tend to be hard to come by.

Maybe you guys should approach the PSP section in your area and mention what Halifax is doing. It may get them off their arses and get a good discount list on the go.

In Vancouver you can get either 20 or 25% off the monthly pass rate for Parks & Rec.  I swim 3-5 times a week at the Vancouver Aquatic Centre and I pay $28 and change a month, and its a nice facility for doing lanes.

Also, most lumber stores will give you a small discount (10% or so) if you ask if there is a military discount.

If you know that in other areas of Canada you would get the discount, it doesn't hurt to ask, all they can say is no!!

Sometimes if you get a good salesclerk, they will just ring you in under the "Seniors" discount.

Saves the tax anyways.

Don't know if anyone else has poted this but I know for sure avis rent a car gives a discount, so i'm guessing most other car rental companies would too. I should warn some people that the military rate at hotels/motels/car rental agencies isnt always the best rate. Always ask for the best rate first and then tell them you would like to check the military rate. I worked in the hospitality industry for almost three years and i have seen the military rate be almost double sometimes, if they are already having a sale.

The gym at NDHQ lists everywhere in Ottawa that you can get anything health related at discounts/free.  The Y's in Orleans and Nepean have free membership for DND military employees, sorry to the civilians.  Avis is one of the few companies that would rent me a car a while back, and said they could only rent to people 19 and up if they were in the military, otherwise it was 25 and over.  Your military ID is still good in the States as well, it gets you in the PX, and onto bases now with the heightened security.  You can also play free squash and work out at the Westin hotel in Ottawa, and swim free at the Champagne pool.  Once, the government rate was actually higher than the posted rate at a hotel, this is done sometimes because the customer will simply call and demand the gov rate, not even asking what the discount/mark up is.

If i remember correctly in Canada you can rent a car from avis with military Id and a major credit card if you are over 18. Otherwise its over 25. I'm a little rusty on the age limits with military Id but I am almost 100 percent sure with military id it lowers the age. You also have to use the military rate , so it may be a little bit higher than other rates.

Avis is a great company. They are one of the only ones that allow one way rentals. They are also awesome for road side assistance and if you want to drive the car across canada they dont care. They also give unlimited milage in 99 percent of the cases. I used to work for them and they are a great company to rent from. Even if they are a little bit more than the competition the standard of car you will get is superior to the others. THey replace a car after 10,000 km's .

I thank the server and leave...Sometimes Im asked if im a cop and i respond with no im in the army yet i still get a free coffee who knows. I have had some experiences where the coffee hasn't been free...Maybe its my killer good looks ::)... maybe just luck ;D

Here in Australia, there is the ADF Defenders programme. Basically you get a card with your name and Regt'al number on it, and you can even get a card for your spouse too.

The programme offers heaps of discounts Australia wide (booklet printed and sent annually) from accomodation to new cars, electrical things etc. You name it. A nationally sponsered thing, which many major companies recognise.

Many decent Disposals too recognise your ADF service, giving ADF discounts on kit, and there is a one time ADF home loan for up to $80,000AUD, with cheap interest rates. Great if both spouses are serving (and it's for ARA and ARes too). A mininum of 8 yrs service required for the loan.

Not bad perks at all really.

Cheers,

Wes

What I have discovered is that many hotels, if you ask for the military rate - it's usually slightly higher than current room rates - this is especially true with two or three hotels in Winnipeg where the Los Brovos (then, Hells Angels now) and 2VP were banned years ago from the bars - apparently the two different factions had sufficient altercations on the various premises to warrant banning of both groups... (take that as you will)

So when I book a hotel over the phone - I request the "Crown Employee" or "Government of Canada Employee Discount" - when I check in and they ask for my ID, I show my military ID card.

One hotel's employees have gotten literally ANGRY that I was so "dishonest" - as the "Military Rate" is higher than the "Crown Rate" - (CANAD Inns at Bishop Grandin and Pembina in Winnipeg) but since they quoted me one price over the phone, they were bound by it...

One night clerk even tried to tell me once that the CF were NOT employees of the Government of Canada - funny, last I checked the Treasury Board was issuing my paycheques....

All for now...

Why it's the Hotel's or other vendors decision to offer a discount or not. Therefor they are within their rights to determine in theory what the criteria for it are. I agree that stating CF pers are not Government employees is misleading and just plain wrong, and perhaps we could retaliate by boycotting said business, but they technically haven't done anything wrong.

With discounts it pays to check first and shop around. Sometimes one may qualify for several, military, senior, student, auto club, credit card etc etc. Best to find out which is the best for that circumstance and use it.

Case in point a year ago I had to attend a weekend convention and they had made a special deal with the hotel who's facilities (meeting rooms etc) were were using. it was cheaper than the rack rate sure, but I checked and found out that the courtesy discount offered by my credit card was better so I used that one.

Buyer beware, and never settle for rack rate.

The Hilton Hotels offer some really great discounts, especially in New Brunswick, so when you call to book, ask them for a Federal government discount.  Also the Fountain Tire downtown Edmonton will give you a preferred customer discount too.  Commenting on one of the posts I read regarding trying to get a discount for a hotel in Winnipeg and the employee giving that person crap for whatever reason is unacceptable and bad customer service and I would suggest you remind them that you are a customer and perhaps request the manager.  If anyone in Edmonton has any good places to buy furniture for good prices and offer a military discount, please post it here so I can check it out.

You can check out: http://www.armymwr.com/shades/eligibility.html  (or shadesofgreen.com).  It appears to be US military only, but email them directly and ask, I bet they would supply the discount to NATO allies.  Please let us know if you do contact them and the result.

At most Universities and Collages, you sometimes get a free complimentary insult for telling people you're in the military.   Insults range from "Babykiller" to "Why does Canada need an army?" to "You're in the Canadian Farces?" to "Thank God I'm a full time student and don't have to pay taxes for your salary"

Come to think of it, I try not to tell anyone I'm in the military unless there is a clear and absolute certainty of a gain (cheap movie tickets, discount camping equipment), I am friends or relatives with the people I'm telling it too, or I am speaking to people who are actually in the military.   It's too depressing to constantly get shot down by people.   

What's wierd is the movie theatre in Kingston on Queens I think, gives discounts to Reg Force members but not Reserves.   What's wierder is that the Army surplus there doesn't give discounts as well... then again, I didn't ask...
I wouldent be afraid to tell them you are in the military. be proud,they are the dishonorable ones to you, the flag and all the country stands for. Besides,you have everyone behind you supporting you- and by them insulting you, they are just hippie freaks.

Avis is a really great place to rent a car, if your over 19 and have a credit card... they are a god sent, unlimited kms the works - they give a gov't rate too!
Any hotel, as mentioned by pretty much everyone!
When we did the Ice Storm (not to be confused with TO's snow storm) we got free coffee and donuts... they seriously wouldn't let us pay!!
Pretty much any outdoor store has a mil discount --- just have to ask... be brave.

Marine Land (or any Busch park) in Florida has a Military discount. The US Mil gets in free, Cdns get a discounted rate.
Always ask if your in the States, always... although Disney World doesn't have a discount at all... ... ...

The YMCA in west Ottawa does not offer a mil discount, which really sucks 'cause they used to.
I also get a discount at my car dealership when I bring my car in. I get the fleet rate... maybe it's 'cause I go in in uniform?

Oh, and theres a really great sandwich shop in Ottawa near Preston and... can't think of it... "Anzios" I think. $3.50 for the best sandwich ever... and sometimes its free too!!

Be careful when using the government rate for hotels and car rentals, i used to work for a car rental agency and sometimes the government rate is way higher than even the regular rate. I suggest checking any discounts you might have like CAA and such before you book. Also, sometimes things you belong to give you a discount even if you don't know it so ask before you book, in the states, the NRA gets a great rate on car rentals  >:D

Almost everywhere in Hawaii offers a military discount and my Canadian ID was honored.  Even at places like parking lots.  Instead of $10.00 US it was $6.00 US I think.  Makes a huge difference on a trip though!

Any member of the CF if he showed up in cadpats, and acted charming/heroic like (with a dose of modesty), especially for individuals with high estrogen levels (women are suckers for flighty Peter Pan stories), could win a significant discount in most customer service industries.

A while back, a buddy of mine received a discount at the peelers for his Cadpat Parade!

I'd be willing to accept bets.
haha..after a Rememberance Day Parade in Halifax a few years back, myself, brother and uncle(retired) went to the "Split Crow" in DEU's. They gave us free wings and a few free shots from the staff. To this day they still give me a few discounts for large orders of drinks. :)

As promised, here is the DND discount information

The discounts are off regular or list prices, unless otherwise specified. In the event of a sale price that is better than the DND discount, teh sale price will apply. Military members can get identification cards for immediate family through the HMFRC (902) 722-7788. Civilian DND and retired CF members can get family ID cards through the kiosk at (902) 721-1201.

The following link will be updated as needed. Select your category (what your looking for), the city and the company name (if applicable). This link will provide the discount amount, the phone number and address for the company as well as any specific instructions needed when using your discount at that particular place.

In the State's, if you show military ID (this includes CF), you will get discounts on air tickets, train, bus, movies, hotels, tourist attractions such as museums, six flags, etc, most of the major one.

Also don't forget you can use your CF military ID for the specific R&R centers here in the U.S. there is one located in DisneyWorld in Florida. They have a website and as soon as I can locate it, I will post it...it has a golfcourse, and all the amenities and is located right on the disney property.

If anyone in the CF is traveling to the U.S. and needs specific information on military discounts to specific locations, please feel free to send me a message

Last time I checked, Shades of Green (the Disney World resort) was only for US Active Duty, retired and foreign military serving on a US defence establishment.

However, that was in late-2004, and I know that Shades completed a major expansion in 2005.  Can anyone confirm if this has changed?  Shades is by far one of the best resorts you can stay at on the Park grounds.
Title: Re: Military Discounts List
Post by: emmiee on January 08, 2006, 20:57:07
Shades of Green does allow CF members under circumstances and conditions. You would need to call them directly. Yes, they did go under a major renovation which is now complete.

My significant other is in the CF, I do live in the states...I called them about a year ago, and we would have been eligible to stay. Basically it has to do with timing, type of service and a few other things, and you can make a reservation up to a year in advance.

Title: Re: Military Discounts List SNOWCAT SKIING 10% DISCOUNT BIG RED CATS
Post by: ex-QM on May 31, 2006, 02:02:02
Hi guys,
Happy to support you guys if you'd like to support me!  I'm ex-military myself, and have started up a snowcat skiing business called Big Red Cats www.bigredcats.com (we're near Red Mountain, we have some big terrain, and we run snowcats). 
We'd like to offer all military a 10% discount rate, which is already one of the lowest around.  For military members, instead of a "no refund" policy, we will give a full refund if you are suddenly posted to the other side of the country, and a full future credit if you are deployed and have to come next season instead.
We're located near Trail BC (22 FER take note!), and the closest airport would be Castlegar if you're flying on points.  The closest regular ski hill is Red, which we can also get you discount tickets to, if you book catskiing.  We have separate tours for intermediate, advanced, and expert skiers and boarders.  We get 30-40 inches of snow each year, so if you like fresh tracks, guaranteed, and you'd like to ski in the backcountry, give us a go! 
And Mud Recce Man, thanks for the tip - I'll make sure to try to post the discounts on the www.dnddiscounts.ca site as well.
Please forward this info to anyone you know in the CF (or other NATO) who you know likes to ski.

While this may be a great program, in order to have a CAC, is there not a monthly or annual fee? And cannot regular civilians buy a CAC membership?

Hey Troops!

Not sure if this is the right place for this. I'm sure someone will move it to where it's supposed to be.
As a member of the US Army for most of the 80's, I always appreciated the military discount offered at hotels, restaurants, etc. I don't see much of that happening here.

I'm not sure how appropriate it is to post this here, ( perhaps an entire thread will develop of places offering military discounts) but here is mine. For any troops reserve, recruiters, reg force, in the London Ontario region, we would like to show our apprecaition to the troops and offer a discount on meals.

Upon reading the fine print, the offer was  over 2 oct 2006.  Will write an email to GM asking for an extension.  in my mind, this should be ongoing, much like the old CF Auto club in the 60-70s.  Unfortunately there is not much of a margin on new cars these days, but this is win win for any manafacturer, especially one that makes millions from DND.

“At General Motors we are proud to support all of our armed forces, active members, reservists and veterans,” says Marc Comeau, vice-president, sales, services and marketing, General Motors of Canada. “This offer is a small way that we can show our appreciation for their dedication to our country and the rest of the world.”

All active service personnel, current reservists and veterans of the Canadian Forces, along with their spouses, are eligible to participate in the program.

“Members interested in receiving the bonus just need to show one of the following pieces of identification – a permanent ID card for active personnel, temporary ID card for reservists, a veteran’s card and a benefit card for spouses and surviving spouses survivors,” says GM spokesperson Adria MacKenzie.

The $500 bonus is available towards the purchase or lease of most new General Motors (GM) vehicles and may be used in conjunction with most other retail incentives.

Eligible vehicles must be delivered between now and October 2, 2006. Headquartered in Oshawa Ontario, General Motors of Canada employs more than 20,000 people nationwide.

Go into the MFRC right outside the front gate to base and pick up the pamphlet. They have a pamphlet in there that lists all the company's in Fredericton/Oromocto and surrounding areas that give mil discounts. There is a heck of a lot of them.

There are over 900 companies in Canada listed at www.cfdiscounts.ca with more being added all the time.  On top of that, you can e-mail them information about discounts in your area for them to follow up on and get added to the site and on top of that, they say they will be giving 50% of ad revenue back to the MFRC's or Royal Canadian Legions!!

I frequently stay in hotels on Provincial Government business (verified by my Ministry of Health ID) and get great rates. Last was as the new Courtyard by Marriott in Hamilton, Ontario (on Upper James). The regular rate was about $300/night and got it for $109, and the place was great, highly reccomended by our whole crew. Discount rates often don't include perks, like breakfast, or for rental cars the km are often limited, so be sure to check these things first.

Travelling in the U.S. and need a place to kip?  Look up U.S.A.F. Inns on the 'net; motels run by US Air Force Services on US AFBs.  U.S. Army and USMC have similar schemes, but didn't get to recce them. 
I just spent 4 nights on a US AFB, with Base privileges, for the same cost as one night at the local Hilton with Military discount (2/3).  You have to apply for permission to stay, and will require an Officer's signature on the application, but if approved you can book a room starting at US$24.50 a night.
If not approved, the vast majority of U.S. hotels/motels will discount their rates anywhere from 10 to 40 % for military ID holders.

If i remember correctly in Canada you can rent a car from avis with military Id and a major credit card if you are over 18. Otherwise its over 25. I'm a little rusty on the age limits with military Id but I am almost 100 percent sure with military id it lowers the age. You also have to use the military rate , so it may be a little bit higher than other rates.

I got a good discount from enterprise car rental in Ottawa, but not as much in Kingston.

I just got an email forwarded from a friend about the Oakley discount for military members. You need to contact the company and they will send you an order form. Just contact them through their website. Only certain items are up for the discount, but it seems to be a BIG discount on some items (50% or so). You also need to order 5 items or more. Sunglasses, bags, and some other things are available. Sorry if this is a repost.

Ok! finally something I can attest too.  I did not use vacations to go, however we did get a military discount on a cruise. The amount of the discount will depend on cruiseline, where, and when you go. The discount was applied on top of all other discounts.  It was great!!

When you are called out for duty and you have to leave your job, any job, the Employer has to keep your job open for you till you get back.  I know one department store in Seattle that goes a few more steps.

Be careful what you wish for - because that's fine if you have a job, but there's been rumblings of discrimination against Reservists and Guardsmen in the US because employers don't want to get stuck with someone who's going to get deployed...

McDonald's locations in the Halifax Regional Municipality (all as far as I'm aware) give a 14% DND discount, applied before taxes so it's actually taking the equivalent value of tax off plus a little more. Some stores may have been changed to 13% to match taxes but some have not. This may be more widespread but I'm not aware of such.

Sure there would be. I'd yell too.

Canex, like most retail outlets has "save the taxes" day sales.

Why should we in the CF be the beneficiary of such all the time?? We live in the country -- we pay the taxes, else we are not citizens.

I really am becoming baffled by more and more inferrences towards "we deserve this because we serve our country", you know, little things that average Canadians don't get, especially when we all volunteered to serve that country -- and I didn't join with the goal to avoid paying taxes, shop tax-free, travel free on Via etc. Even when, at risk to their own finacial viability and stability, some business' offer us something for free -- some  always complain that it doesn't go "far enough" or isn't "good enough". That's crap. Be happy they care enough to give you anything for free.

I'm feeling a distinct sense of "entitlement creep" in some soldiers these days -- based on nothing more than the fact that they serve. So do fire-fighters, police officers, etc etc. Not saying that you've done that with your post above, but it just brings the thought back to my mind again.

I never joined to get something handed to me either Vern, however if I can save a couple dollars on a pair of tires on a discount freely offered to the military I see no problem with that. I guess if the Canex always offered tax free products like the US PX/NEX, there would be no out cry due to the fact we would use to that benefit. I do agree that when some things are freely offered e.g. Via rail, some people are going to complain and thats too bad.

Don't get me wrong, I agree. If it's offered -- take it and say "thank you very much". And, be appreciative of that. And, even if you can't use the service or item offered, say "thank you very much". And then be appreciative of the fact that it was offered.

It changes for me when one then goes on to ***** that "it wasn't a good enough offer" or that they "should have offered me something I could use" or that "the offer would have been better done this way instead". That's unappreciative. Especially considering they didn't have to give any of us squat. People should just move along -- keeping their bitchs about how it's "not good enough" or "doesn't go far enough" to themselves -- anything else is just plain ignorant & wrong.

It is good to see some places make an effort to honour those who serve in uniform.  I don't think, however, we shoud always expect it.  If I know of a place which offers a military discount, I'll present my military ID.  Usually they clue in and give the discount.  I am a bit wary of asking directly as it might seen to an observer that I EXPECT preferential treatment.  I don't.  If I am in uniform and they don't give an advertised discount (say at a fast food restaurant) I let it slide;  if I can't afford an extra fifty cents, I shouldn't be eating out.  I hope that they businesses that do offer an incentive to the troops  keep it up.  I just hope we don't become so arrogant to expect it everywhere.

Oakley Eyewear not only meets, but exceeds all ANSI Z87.1 Standards.  We are the only eyewear manufacturer in the world to do so.

HIGH MASS impact & high velocity impact

Ever try holding Bolé’s or Nike’s up to a pneumatic cannon while it blasts a quarter-inch steel ball at 102 MPH? How about dropping a metal spike weighing more than a pound from over four feet onto a pair of Smith’s or Maui Jim’s? We have, the results simply blow our competition away!

Only Oakley’s unique combination of wrapped, racked-back lens geometries, durable Plutonite lens materials allow Oakley eyewear to exceed the standards established by the American National Standards Institute.

Uv protection & PLUTONITE LENS MATERIAL

Oakley’s Plutonite lens material inherently blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light. The protection is formulated into the lens material as opposed to a thin surface film that can become scratched, leaving dilated pupils exposed to ultraviolet leaks. Shielding has nothing to do with the darkness or color of the lens, so even clear Oakley lenses provide full protection.

A TRUE FORCES STORY…

Dear Oakley Canada,
      I am a Canadian soldier currently serving in Afghanistan.  Before I
deployed overseas, I purchased a set of Oakley M frame ballistic glasses
from your company.

I was recently involved in a suicide-bombing incident in which four of my
men were killed and another sixteen injured, one of which was myself.  I
would estimate that I was approximately four feet from the bomber when he
detonated.   The blast sent me scrambling for cover.  How I managed to
survive is beyond me, however, I did.  I received two shrapnel wounds to
both my inner thighs and burn marks on my face and arms.  I was wearing your
glasses when the explosion happened and I can still see thanks to your
excellent product.  The lenses absorbed the blast protecting my eyes.   
There is a small amount of scratching and the blast residue is stuck to
their surface.  I did not recover the frame from the site, only the lenses.

I am writing to let you know that your product did exactly what it was
supposed to do.  I can still see and for that I thank you.  My wife also
sends her thanks…

Sincerely,
Sgt. Shawn Hoddinott 883

Booooya new runners here I come! :D

I'm really impressed, I've always had tons of trouble running (achilles tendinitis and a broken foot that wasn't set properly will do that to you), and today I went for the first run in as long as I can remember where I had to pull up from a stitch instead of leg pain.  I might actually learn to like running again if this keeps up.  They spent lots of time with me looking over my orthotics, talking to my chiropodist and just watching me walk and run to make sure I got the right shoe, much better than most stores would do - and the price wasn't bad either even before the discount.

don't know about a discount but depending on what you are buying you could always negotiate on the price. They will often knock something off if you ask.

Only Oakley’s unique combination of wrapped, racked-back lens geometries, durable Plutonite lens materials allow Oakley eyewear to exceed the standards established by the American National Standards Institute.

Uv protection & PLUTONITE LENS MATERIAL

Oakley’s Plutonite lens material inherently blocks 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light. The protection is formulated into the lens material as opposed to a thin surface film that can become scratched, leaving dilated pupils exposed to ultraviolet leaks. Shielding has nothing to do with the darkness or color of the lens, so even clear Oakley lenses provide full protection.

A TRUE FORCES STORY…

Dear Oakley Canada,
      I am a Canadian soldier currently serving in Afghanistan.  Before I
deployed overseas, I purchased a set of Oakley M frame ballistic glasses
from your company.

I was recently involved in a suicide-bombing incident in which four of my
men were killed and another sixteen injured, one of which was myself.  I
would estimate that I was approximately four feet from the bomber when he
detonated.   The blast sent me scrambling for cover.  How I managed to
survive is beyond me, however, I did.  I received two shrapnel wounds to
both my inner thighs and burn marks on my face and arms.  I was wearing your
glasses when the explosion happened and I can still see thanks to your
excellent product.  The lenses absorbed the blast protecting my eyes.  
There is a small amount of scratching and the blast residue is stuck to
their surface.  I did not recover the frame from the site, only the lenses.

I am writing to let you know that your product did exactly what it was
supposed to do.  I can still see and for that I thank you.  My wife also
sends her thanks…

Sincerely,
Sgt. Shawn Hoddinott 883

Yes I saw that posting which is directly from the website, but that post as far as I can tell does not include the web addresse for people to go to and register.  I just wanted show that you can go directly to the website to register and see all the product in a HTML format and not just in a text format.  Just trying to help where I could  :)

Lone Wolf Quagmire  I spoke with Marc Dube @ Oakley directly and he had indicated that this is the way for us to order our gear from Oakley.  This makes it easier for Oakley as well as the soldier. 

I hope this helps everyone out.

Just an update, I got my M frames a while ago through the Oakley forces program. You can now register at www.oakleyforces.ca (http://www.oakleyforces.ca) which will allow you to browse and order items such as goggles, boots etc. You must be willing to provide a scanned copy of your Mil ID but the process is quite painless. Customer service is good and I got my order in 2 days.

EDIT I see the link has already been posted. Hopefully more people will take advantage of this program as it really is good...I'm thinking about getting some gloves too but I guess I'll wait until after my next course is done, don't want to get jacked too hard.  :P

I'm not entirely sure that this has been posted but you can register online with Oakley directly to receive your discount.  Just go to   https://www.oakleyforces.ca/   and choose the register tab at the top and follow the basic instruction.  Once your registration is confirmed you will be able to order directly from this web site in either individual orders or a bulk order for a greater discount.

Yet again sorry if this link has been posted.


Its been put up already, but thanks for the reminder.

I was in the Future Shop day before last in Dartmouth.  They have just recently started offering a military discount by paying the taxes on all goods, not services unfortunately.  Not sure if this is a Canada wide offer, but I'll wager it will be honoured everywhere.  Still, all in all I bought a new cook top for the boss and got $175 off as the discount.  Better than a kick in the *** with a wet mukluck.

We just returned from a family trip to the USA, where military discounts abound...from museums to amusement parks...they are not always advertised, so you have to muster up the guts to ask for a military discount, and then just show your military ID (Yes, Canadian DND card).  Personally, we received 4 free passes to Sesame Place, a $200.00 value!  While at the park we bought the typical overpriced food, but again asked for a military discount and were given $10 off our lunch order! Here's an official link to the sponsor and other great offers:  http://www.herosalute.com/cavatx/index.html   

Our Sears travel agent also said that Holland America gives discounts to military members too!  Happy travels!

I don't know if this site has been posted before. But here is a site with all Military Discounts. If you find that you know of one that is missing you can email them and have it added.

http://www.cfdiscounts.ca/

I also find that if one location of a chain has and another does not, just pop in and let them know and the usually honour it.

I was in the Future Shop day before last in Dartmouth.  They have just recently started offering a military discount by paying the taxes on all goods, not services unfortunately.  Not sure if this is a Canada wide offer, but I'll wager it will be honoured everywhere.  Still, all in all I bought a new cook top for the boss and got $175 off as the discount.  Better than a kick in the *** with a wet mukluck.

I just discovered this last week when I pulled out my wallet to pay for my dvds and games the girl on cash mentioned to me about the discount. I was quite pleased to take advantage of it. :)

I am not sure if these site has a 100% complete list of discounts.

http://www.dnddiscounts.ca/

For those in the HRM, if you look down the menu on the right of this site, you'll see the links to the ones that apply in Halifax.  The newest of those is the FutureShop one, up to 13% off, excluding services.  The best one I've seen since being in Halifax was the GRC tire one a few years back; it was 48% off.   :o  (I just checked it, it is now up to 48% off.)

Apparently most "East Side Mario's" will give 15% off for Military and Emergency Services. Need not be in Uniform, just show them ID. Not sure if it is a corporate policy or just store by store, but for sure the one in Thunder Bay does as well as the one in Scarborough. Manager told me it is not used much but they are very happy to offer it, both in the restaurant, bar side (not sure if on alcohol) or for take-out.

I wonder if there is any way PSP or whoever could make and supply to business a little plastic "DND discount available here" sign, like they have at most POS systems to display which credit cards are accepted, etc.

Or has that idea been thought of and rejected?

EITS- The idea has probably been looked at in the past. What would the public image be seeing those all around town? The PR from those symbols/stickers could easily backfire.

Some people still think that CF members do not pay taxes.

Ok, here is the savings I have seen:
McDonald's`s 15% given while in uniform, I did not ask, just surprised when I received it.
KFC 15% discount, while in uniform
Holiday Inn hotels have a discount, sometimes better than the internet rate, sometimes not.
Via Rail is still offering military discounts
The Running Room 15% off, just show id
Hubby has mentioned Subway giving a discount as well when he was in uniform

In the States: 
Movie theatres will have the prices discounted for military, Cdn military id works, we lived in Colorado for 4 years and never had a problem with it.
Shades of Green (military only resort on Walt Disney World) you have to be actively working with the US military to qualify to stay here; however, there is a shop in the hotel where you can buy discounted park tickets with your Cdn military id.
We found while living in the States that most places will advertise a military discount and if they do not, just ask.

That is all so far, I think I need to call Future Shop about the laptop I bought there last weekend :S

Marine Atlantic to honour Canadian Forces

April 21, 2009

St. John’s - Marine Atlantic will honour Canada’s Canadian Forces personnel, veterans and their families with a special appreciation fare from May 1 to October 31, 2009.

The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2009 will provide Canadian Forces members and veterans with a complimentary passenger fare on the Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry route.  Up to three companions travelling in the same vehicle and on the same reservation will also receive a complimentary passenger fare.

“I am truly pleased that Marine Atlantic has chosen to honour Canadian Forces members and their families with these special fares,” said Rob Merrifield, Minister of State for Transport. “I hope they and their fellow Canadians will take advantage of all Marine Atlantic has to offer this summer.”

“Marine Atlantic is an important link to families and loved ones for Canada’s men and women in uniform from eastern Canada,” said Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence.

“The Canadian Forces’ history is steeped with stories of courage and bravery from Atlantic Canadians.  I am proud that Marine Atlantic and this government are recognizing and celebrating this historic past,” added Minister of Veterans Affairs Greg Thompson.

“The members and families of our Canadian Forces, both past and present, represent an integral part of who we are as Canadians and therefore we would like to thank them for their service through this promotion,” said Wayne Follett, President and CEO of Marine Atlantic.  “We look forward to our Canadian Forces and our veterans taking advantage of this appreciation fare.”

Additionally, members of the Canadian Forces will receive a 50% discount on their passenger fare when travelling on the Argentia/North Sydney ferry service.  Up to three companions travelling in the same vehicle and on the same reservation will also receive a 50% discount on their passenger fare when travelling on the Argentia/North Sydney ferry service. Normal fares will apply to the vehicle itself.

For a return booking consisting of four adults in a passenger vehicle booked under the Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2009 on the Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry route, this represents a savings of $230.00.  Likewise, for a similar booking on the Argentia/North Sydney ferry route; this represents a savings of $322.00.

This promotion will provide individuals with a wide range of opportunities to travel to and from the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Some restrictions will apply to the Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2009.  To reserve under this Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2009 beginning on Monday, April 27, please call 1-800-341-7981.  We apologize this fare is not available through online booking.  The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2009 is available on new and existing reservations.  Members of the military may avail of this opportunity anytime during the promotional period.  To avail of this fare, members and veterans must present required identification or documentation.

Hi fellow countrymen (Newfoundlanders) and potential tourist.

I just got off the phone with Marine Atlantic from booking my trip.

Couple things to note:

-Not all crossings have the military discount.I.E the 17 may has one but the 18th none(example).Only certain vessels during certain times carry the discount.

-The crossings which have the discount only has a certain amount of spots available.I.E: If the one crossing on the 18 that has the discount ten positions (which the booking agent said was the average per)

-July is pretty well booked solid for the Military discount.So If your waiting on your leave pass prior to booking,you may not get the discount as all the available military positions will be filled.She said most were at this time.

Basically there are only on average 10 spots on a ship with the discount.Not all of the crossings have the discount.So come leave time it would mean you paying the normal rate to get across.

Overall after spending 207 dollars for a crossing one way,I saved (or sove) 84 dollars.

Something I was unaware of.Thought I would pass sit on.

No problem bro
Honestly I don't think anyone was aware.Who I feel bad for is my guys who really can't book yet.Although we have a "summer leave block plan" it's hard to book when some taskings yet to come out will run into that timeframe.

As well something not directly related to the military apperication deal but relivant.
You now have to pay full and book a reservation.There is no more stand-by.And unlike in the past where you booked with a 25 dollar deposit,you now pay full.

Hope this helps a few people get the few spots Marine Atlantic are actually offering.

I agree.
However here is my outlook on the whole discount.

There is no better business than word of mouth.This "deal" was sent out with no small print of availability,certain crossings with 10 per trip.What did marine Atlantic get by announcing free personal ticket port aux basque/half price Argentia?They had a whole pile of regular/reserve,and Vets booking.Problem being now anyone booking for July will most likely not get near the dates they want to cross,making them pay the normal fee's on one or both crossings. Seems like a free country wide advertisement/ boost in their business for: 10 positions every couple crossings.Not as they were advertising as military per did not pay for personal ticket just their vehicle.

When I have two weeks off I want to spend time with my family period.And if the positions were filled on the day I needed to travel I would have ended up paying the full rate,as I only see my family 2 weeks a year.thus a boost in their overall business.Not to mention families making plans,not knowing of the stipulations.Making kayak trip bookings in Newfoundland who must meet their timings on the Newfoundland side.

There is no deal with Marine Atlantic really.It was a gimic IMHO.

Of course it's a gimmick.  Despite Marine Atlantic's corporate nature, it is still a business and will operate like most other businesses - keeping a eye on the bottom line.  While VIA Rail's original offer last year (and this year) may have seemed more generous, it was based on a very sound business idea with the intent to increase passenger load (and thus revenue) during a period when ridership traditionally decreases but operating costs (for a basic schedule) don't.  If these new passengers are converted into train users because of the experience there is an added benefit.  Marine Atlantic is probably in the opposite situation.  Their passenger load likely increases during the same time period (note the Argentia run) and they do not have any competition for surface travellers (especially with cars) who wish to go to/from the Rock.  Probably the sole reason that they are making the offer is for image - VIA Rail did it so they had to do it to avoid complaints.  Expressions of gratitude for military pers was simply a marketing ploy.

As for Marine Atlantic not stating that there are only a few openings available, they probably feel that it is covered by this language in their news release.

True but then again IT being an extension of the TCH I still fail to see why we have to pay for said service....... But that is for a different thread.

That discussion was played out last year in Ferry unfair: MP rails against feds over Forces exclusion (http://forums.army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,73189.0/all.html) in which I posted this.

Did you know that the ferry service was at one time free? As it was built as an extension of the TCH, it was considered public roads across the Atlantic...
 
That is, perhaps, a myth.  The ferries between Port Aux Basques and North Sydney had been a service of the Newfoundland Railway (and of the Reid Newfoundland Company prior to its nationalization) before Canada joined Newfoundland in 1949.  The continuation and maintenance of that service by the Canadian government was one of the  terms of the Newfoundland Act.  Reference is made in that section as to the rate that would apply to traffic on that route.  It is unlikely that passengers ever had free passage on the ferries, I know I had to pay 37 years ago and I recall my grandfather (a former employee of the Reid Newfoundland Railway) speaking about paying a "special" fare because he had worked for them.

Quote
Newfoundland Act (http://www.solon.org/Constitutions/Canada/English/nfa.html)
32. (1) Canada will maintain in accordance with the traffic offering a freight and passenger steamship service between North Sydney and Port aux Basques, which, on completion of a motor highway between Corner Brook and Port aux Basques, will include suitable provision for the carriage of motor vehicles:

(2) For the purpose of railway rate regulation the Island of Newfoundland will be included in the Maritime region of Canada, and through traffic moving between North Sydney and Port aux Basques will be treated as all rail traffic.

(3) All legislation of the Parliament of Canada providing for special rates on traffic moving within, into, or out of, the Maritime region will as far as appropriate, be made applicable to the Island of Newfoundland.

Either way I know I never heard talk of 10 pers every couple trips across only, for the discounted travel.I hope by posting here I can save someone a few dollars or a argument with Marine Atlantic ticketing.

Either way my one way ticket across cost 207 dollars with the military discount.And that's the short ferry ride,I then have 10 hours of driving.

The joys of Island living I guess!

As my wife says....8 more trips!
Then my transcanada will consist of what exists on the Avalon. ;)

Byrne Slams Feds on Canadian Soldiers Policy for Marine Atlantic
June 21, 2009 (http://vocm.com/news-info.asp?id=36948)


A Newfoundland MP is slamming the federal government for it's Canadian Forces Appreciation Fee offered to travellers on Marine Atlantic. The program allows discounted travel for Canadian Forces personnel, veterans and their immediate travelling companions. Gerry Byrne says he had to fight to have Marine Atlantic to extend the same benefits to soldiers on Marine Atlantic that were already being offered on VIA Rail. Byrne says he's disappointed to learn of restrictions placed on those forces personnel. Only a maximum of 8 soldiers or veterans are allowed on any one crossing.

Marine Atlantic brings back its gimmick fare again for the CF but with a notable change as highlighted.....

Marine Atlantic to again honour Canadian Forces with discounted travel (http://marine-atlantic.ca/en/forces/newsrelease.shtml)

February 20, 2010
Sydney, Nova Scotia - Wayne Follett, President and CEO of Marine Atlantic, with Canada’s Transport Minister, John Baird, today announced that Marine Atlantic will once again honour Canada’s Canadian Forces personnel, veterans and up to three companions with a special appreciation fare from May 1 to October 31, 2010. Marine Atlantic launched this initiative for the first time last year, which was a huge success.

“The Government of Canada is proud of the work of our Canadian Forces and the contributions made by our veterans,” said Baird. “We are pleased that Marine Atlantic Inc. is once again honouring members of the Canadian Forces and their families by providing discounted travel opportunities to and from Newfoundland and Labrador.”

“This special fare between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland is a great way to say “thank you” to current and retired members of the Canadian Forces,” said the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence.
"Marine Atlantic’s offer is one more way we can repay the great debt that all Canadians owe to the brave men and women who have always been willing to defend our nation," said the Honourable Jean-Pierre Blackburn, Minister of Veterans Affairs.

The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 will provide Canadian Forces members and veterans with free passenger fare on the Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry route. Additionally, members will receive a 50% discount on their passenger fare when travelling on the Argentia/North Sydney ferry service. Up to three companions travelling in the same vehicle and on the same reservation will also receive the discount.

“We received a very positive response from our Canadian Forces and veterans who benefitted from the appreciation fare last year. By announcing the fare much earlier this year we hope to provide those interested with additional time to make their travel plans,” said Mr. Follett. “The 2010 appreciation fare provides for availability on every crossing during the six month travel period which is an improvement over last year’s promotion where some crossings were not available for any bookings under the appreciation fare. However, it is still important that individuals book early to get the discount on their preferred crossing.”

This promotion will provide individuals with a wide range of opportunities to travel to and from the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Due to space limitations on the vessels, especially during July and August, there are restrictions on the number of spaces available for the Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010. To reserve under this Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 beginning on Monday, March 1, 2010, please call 1-800-341-7981. The fare is not available through online booking. The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 is available on new and existing reservations. Members of the military and veterans may book anytime during the promotional period, by presenting required identification. Normal fares will apply to the vehicle itself for Argentia/North Sydney as well as Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry services.

Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 (http://marine-atlantic.ca/en/forces/backgrounder.shtml)

Marine Atlantic provides an essential transportation service between Newfoundland and Labrador and the mainland portion of Canada.

The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 will be available to qualified individuals from May 1 to October 31, 2010. It is available on both of Marine Atlantic’s Port aux Basques/North Sydney and Argentia/North Sydney ferry services and will be applied to new reservations and existing reservations for individuals who qualify. Members of the Canadian Forces may book this travel as often as they wish during the promotional period. As there is limited space available under this program, people are encouraged to book early.

Eligibility
For the purpose of this promotion Canadian Forces personnel are defined as active or retired members of the army, navy, air force or reserves.

An eligible individual must possess one of the following pieces of identification, at the time of booking a reservation and must also present it at the time of travel:

◦ID Cards for the Department of National Defence (Cards: NDI 20, NDI 30, NDI 50, DND 2262);
◦Record of Service Card (NDI 75 or CF-75) or certificate of discharge (together with photo identification) for retired military; or
◦Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) Benefit Card for veterans.


The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 is designed to thank current and past members of our armed forces by providing them with a discount when travelling for personal reasons. Therefore, to qualify individuals must be travelling either in a personal vehicle (PRV) or as a walk-on customer. This discount is not provided in conjunction with other special fares such as group rates.

Travel period and space limitation
The Canadian Forces Appreciation Fare 2010 will be in effect for travel that occurs from May 1 until October 31, 2010. Blackout crossings have been removed this year and every crossing during this period provides space for the Military Appreciation Fare 2010. However, due to limited space on vessels, especially during the peak summer season, there is a maximum number of vehicle spaces allocated for each crossing. Therefore it is important that individuals book early to get the discount on their preferred crossing.


Details of the special fares
Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry service
Members of the Canadian Forces, plus up to three additional persons travelling in the same vehicle on the same reservation are entitled to complimentary passenger travel on the Port aux Basques/North Sydney ferry service. Please note vehicle fares are not included in this promotion.

If you check the 2010 Accommodation and Car Rental Directory (http://rehelv-acrd.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/index-eng.aspx) on the PWGSC website, you will find the rates charged by rental companies for car rental for "Official Government Business Travel".

You will find that most times, most rental places will honour those rates for non-official travel.  Most will not ask for a leave pass - it is best to ask if they will require any documentation prior to booking the vehicle.  I rented a subcompact Nissan Versa for three days for under $110 over the May 24 weekend, as the wife took our car to the US to visit family.  (That's with a waiver on collision damage coverage, as we have a rider on our vehicle policy which covers rental vehicles up to 5000 lbs.  A wise investment if you rent vehicles more than once per year, generally)

I used to work at Home Depot, and they had the same issues. You would get some giant promotion and only a small amount of product would arrive in time for the event. They would sell out instantly, and customers would be pissed right off. Then naturally, a few weeks later the product in question would flow into the store after someone had discovered that it had been static at a local distribution centre.

On a different note, does anyone know for a fact if BMW offers a mil discount here in Canada? I am in the process of purchasing a car from them but want to know if there is a discount before I bring it up. I feel kind of awkward asking for discounts since we make good money, but if there is one available I would never turn it down. When I was looking at Hondas before, I know the salesman pegged me as military and brought it up right away.

Here is one for ya.

I wrote Aeropostale to see if they had a military discount for serving members here in Canada such as they do in the states.

The reply i got was that although they do not have a discount for the Canadian Military in Canada I could go to any Aeropostale store in Canada and the US and present my AMERICAN MILITARY ID then I would be entitled to 15 percent off. This is the response I have gotten from most big box stores. including Old Navy and American Eagle.
15 percent off merchandise in Canada for US Military ID card holders.

Did you try showing your Military ID card?  Taking the above statements into account, the cashier probably is incapable of differentiating between a Canadian and an American Military ID.

Quick question... It'll sound stupid but...

How do you show a 'Cadet ID' when there's no such thing... Not to many people, unless I'm in uniform, are apt to believe me.


So, basicaly, what's the Cadet ID?

I want to take the family to NYC.  What are the best places to stay? Best attractions? (For a 5 year old, a 19 year old, and two adults)

Where to stay is the big question. The Soldiers', Sailors', Marines' & Airmen's Club or that base just over the bridge. I forget what it's called. Navy Lodge or something? Would they have more fun if I just paid the extra and went to the Hilton Manhattan East or Wyndham Garden Hotel in Times Square?

Thanks guys.

The Navy lodge on Staten Island is a decent place, about a 5 min cab ride to the ferry that takes you directly to Battery Park in Manhatten.  From there you can take the subway to just about anywhere. Try this link lots of good info there. The USO in the port authority bus station are pretty good, lots of good info there, they the best ones to talk to about free tickets for the shows, letterman etc.

When I visited New York City 2 years ago. I visited the Empire State Building and other places as well as other places and when I saw on their price list a Military Discount or Retired, I asked if the same discount be given to Canadian Forces and Canadian Vets and was told in every case, yes. If your in Uniform, most places are free. Ones I went to had a 20% discount. This year I went to Las Vegas and San Diego, in San Diego, I went to see the USS Midway. Regular price was $18.00 and I got it for $10.00 buy showing my DVA Card and Photo ID. So yes, if a Military Rate is posted, we would get it too.  Also when you travel to places like like London England, they have Military Service Clubs where you can stay and in London, there are many, like the Victory Services Club. All you do is pay a small membership and you can stay it the club for much less then a Hotel and the service you get from the staff is top notch.  If you like more info, get hold of me.

Some of them cater more towards Officers. So a person who has anything less then that, might feel out of place. The Victory Services Club is an all ranks club. So anyone would feel it home. The nice thing is that the membership fee is lower and you still can use it at other clubs, if you get a letter of introduction and with the reciprocal arrangements with other Service Clubs, it can also save you money. Like New York City has one on Lexington Ave. This is right in the center of Manhattan  Here in Canada, we don't have as many and most don't even offer accommodations

I have found that, with respect to service providers such as hotels (in Canada), it often works better to ask if they have a "Government of Canada rate".  I then showed my military ID when I arrived to confirm the rate, and never had a problem.  The Government of Canada rate is like a corporate rate for a preferred corporate customer.

And I have found that sometimes, this rate can be higher then the Corporate Rate. It depends on where you go, some Hotels give leeway to Desk Clerks to give a lower rate, might even give the same rate they do to people who work in the Hospitality field, sometimes a 30 to 50% discount.

Nearly every year I go South with the Unit for two weeks and nearly always get a discount even with Canadian Military I.D.

A little kicker for you. ;)

In between Dallas and Ft.Worth in Arlington there's this C&W Bar called "Cowboys" which was an old K Mart store,12 bars,30 pool tables,one huge dance floor and a stage big enough to hold a 7 piece band as that was on that night and full of University Students and the local ANG turned us on too it.

When we first got there the youngn's rushed in ahead of us old slow pokes and paid their $5.00,$10.00 ? to get in and we just sauntered up and asked if they gave a Military Discount,I.D. please sure enough we got in free!!!! ;D

Nine times out of Ten in the States you will get a discount in Club's.Disco's and Strip Joints etc and also on accommodation even with Canadian Military I.D.
Many Americans may not know much about us but go out of their way to make us feel at home.

If you are ever travailing through Sea/Tac Airport (Seattle) they have a USO up stairs were you with your family or Solo, can shower,do laundry,sleep and have a good snack (bloody good sangies and cookies) they will wake you up for your flight there are only 3 USO's like this in the States and I forget the other two.

Maybe Maj. Baker can help out with the other two.


Also the USO publishes a book of places to stay all over the world at Military Rates for all Members of NATO, cost's about $10.00 to pick up in the P.X. in the book section.

There is a USO in New York City at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and it's much the same as Seatac. They will also take you in if you have a DVA Card with Photo ID. They still consider you part of the Family, even as a Vet.  The only place the DVA Card won't get you into is on Base. So, if you have less then 10 years in and you don't have a disability, your up the creek

I once had a Buick Celebrity and had a bulging tire. So I took it to a Canadian Tire and left it with them, went for a coffee and came back and I could not believe my own eyes, the guy working on it was banging on a screw driver with a hammer trying to remove the locking wheel lug. I said hold on, do you know how to remove the hub cap lock nut. He said no. Before he was able to do more damage, I took my car and went to Firestone and they did it the right way.  Firestone didn't have a key but they know enough to ask if I had mine and I did with the spare tire.  Now I have a brand new car and I take it to the Dealership, might cost me more but at least they know what to do. Mind you, I did give the key to the guy at Crappy Tire but he had no idea how it worked.

Very true. I also work for the GoC civvy side (the Gov owns waayyy too much of my a$$), and too often, the Gov rate is at lest $5 higher than the Corporate rate. IMO, they should have a separate rate. One for Mil pers, one for the rest of the GoC.

Also, I was at a CFLC award presentation recently, and one of the guys presenting an award to his employer.. was doing so to his boss at Home Depot. He and I spoke afterwards, and he's been working for moons - from the inside, no less - trying to get HDC to offer the same discount as their US branch.

You may have seen me comment earlier in the thread that I'd been shopping at Lowes for some time before finding out that they offer a 10% discount to CF personnel and veterans.  They still don't actively advertise it, but at least now if I pass my ID card to them, the cashiers no longer look at me funny and know right away to apply the 10% discount.  They must've included the discount into the cashier training program.  As a result, Lowes has almost all of my business, with the exception of tool rental - which Lowes doesn't offer.

As part of its centennial celebration, Parks Canada honours our serving Canadian Forces and veterans
 
Ottawa, Ontario, August 8, 2011 — Parks Canada is offering Canada’s military, veterans and their families, a special welcome and free admission to Canada’s national historic sites, national parks and national marine conservation areas during its centennial “Fab Forts Weekend”, August 19 – 21.
 
“The Canadian Forces contribute immeasurably to keeping Canada strong and free. Parks Canada wants to show its appreciation by inviting them to visit our national historic sites, parks and marine conservation areas on a weekend when there will also be special programming at the fort sites," declared the Honourable Peter Kent, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada.
“I am delighted that both members of the Canadian Forces and veterans will be able to enjoy a summer weekend with their families in Canada’s treasured natural and historic places, free of charge,” said the Honourable Peter MacKay, Minister of National Defence. “I have every confidence that this gesture will be greatly appreciated by those who have done so much in the name of Canada.”
 
Thirty-eight of Canada’s most historic fortifications will celebrate Parks Canada’s centennial with a “Fab Forts Weekend” of special events. In their modern role as community gathering places and drivers of tourism, they will host concerts, picnics, archaeology-related activities, markets, tours and much more.
 
Among the highlights of the “Fab Forts Weekend” will be a coast-to-coast Parks Canada centennial 100-gun salute which will ripple across the country from coast to coast on Sunday afternoon. The weekend will include fun activities for all ages and interests, from architecture, to canoeing to exploring, and themes such as furs, foods and harvesting.
 
“Forts have played a huge role in the history and growth of Canada and I invite all Canadians to join in the fun at a nearby national historic fort site and help make this nation-wide event a memorable one,” said Alan Latourelle, Parks Canada’s CEO.
 
Whether built as part of the fur trade or in defence of the country, Canada’s fortifications have had a central role in community life and were the foundations of many of our major cities. As defining elements of regional culture, gathering places and centres of community life, Canada’s national historic sites offer personal moments of inspiring discovery and a source of unforgettable experiences.
 
For a complete list of participating sites and events across the country, please see the accompanying backgrounder at www.parkscanada.gc.ca under Media Room.

I'm not sure if this one's been mentioned before, but Hero Army Surplus in Oshawa offers military discounts. They have some really neat stuff, especially their replica single-action revolvers and especially their ordinance collection. Thanks to my discount, I picked up some really nice assorted casings for my collection. Unfortunately, they didn't have any 73 mm 2A28 as used in the BMP-1 nor did they have any 120 mm, both of which I'm really looking for to add to my collection. However, they did have some real gems in their collection. I was one happy camper after going there, leaving with a beautiful replica Colt Peacemaker and a boatload of ordinance  ;D .

http://www.wheelsnext.com offers a $40 off all wheel & tire combos Armed Forces discount. They're an American company but they will give the discount to CF personnel as well.

It's not much percentage wise but hey it's $40 and it's the thought that counts.

On second thought, having received a set of wheels that don't fit my 2008 Subaru Impreza (the Subaru dealer says they don't, a local tire shop says they don't, and if you go to TireRack.com they won't sell the rims to 2008 Subaru Impreza owners even though they stock the same rim because they don't fit), and WheelsNext.com not honouring their "100% fitment guarantee" and instead they are basically flipping me the bird, I would recommend you stay away from them no matter how much of a discount they offer.

I sure got what I paid for, and a little more than I bargained for...
Title: Westjet now waives baggage fees for Military personnel
Post by: Guy Incognito on October 20, 2011, 12:39:12
From Canada Newswire:

Quote
WestJet will waive all baggage fees for any military personnel, including those from other countries, upon presentation of military identification. This means that any military personnel may travel for business or pleasure, in uniform or civilian clothing, with a maximum of four checked bags at no additional charge. However, items that exceed maximum permitted size or weight will not be accepted as these items must still be shipped via cargo.

And what is required to open one of these? I would like to before I get to St-Jean. I do have my acceptance letter, hopefully that is sufficient.
On a bit of a whim, I sent an email to my friendly neighbourhood BMO rep back in Halifax asking about this discount. Lo and behold, not only did she drop my 13.95 a month to 5.45 but reimbursed me the difference for the last 18 months too - 153.00 - Woo Hoo! Party in Pat's pad this eve!

I went to RONA today in Halifax to buy some building supplies and what not because of a 15% sale they were having. When I went to pay, the clerk saw my military ID and asked if I was in the military and I told him I was. He said thank you for your service and I went on my way. Turns out he gave me the 15% discount and a further DND 8% discount on top of that. I knew they had a DND discount and never asked for it on top of a store promotion like that.
I have 2 Kents and a Home depot that are closer to me than the one RONA store we have in Halifax, i'll go out of my way now to shop there.

I have to relay an experience I had a few weeks ago. I was in Phil for a layover for a few hours during some service travel and I wandered into a USO office they had there for US service members. Showed my ID was welcomed in, free wifi, coffee, pop, snacks, chili, you name it.
They even tried to give me phone cards and other freebee's to point where I was embarrassed.
Wherever I go, be it New York, Florida etc I make it a point and stop by the USO, what a bunch of nice people. :salute:
Too bad we don't have something similar in some of the major airports in Canada.

Contact Pearson Parking Authority at 416-776-5156.

I also got the info about the free parking.  Do not pay at the machines.  When you go through the cashier, tell them you're military and show your ID.  Apparently it's for any parking (Express, Daily, Value) for any purpose (TD or personal) and for any length of time.  At least, that's what I got in the email.

Distr List

FREE PARKING - PEARSON AIRPORT

1. Pearson International Airport (Toronto) is currently providing free parking to all CF members in any of their facilities (Express, Daily, Value, etc) for either business or pleasure.

2. Process is as fol:
   
   a. Do not pay your parking fee on the various orange machines;
   b. On exiting the parking, identify yourself with your valid CF id to the attendant;
   c. Exit for free.

3. This is an initiative from the Toronto Pearson Airport as part of their "Support the Troops" programme. Note that there is no expiry date on this promotion so it is advisable to check with the airport prior to exiting the facility to ensure the programme is still in effect on your next trip. Questions must be directed to Toronto Pearson Airport customer relations as the unit does not have any further information.

I'm going to drive all the way there and use it, because the only other free thing in Cabbagetown is STDs ;D

Shame some ultra left-wing nutbar got hold of my Temporary CF ID and proceeded to burn it along with my Conservative Party of Canada Membership Card :evil: because he thought that by golly since I had an ID card AND I was a Conservative, I was likely to pillage Afghan villages....despite the fact that I was never once on tour   :( . In typical leftist form, he did this while I wasn't even around to save himself a series of swift kicks to the rear. Had I been around, not only would I still have my card, but this leftist in question would have had a nice fat lip and some bruises to sport (I know this isn't exactly the best examples of integrity.....but who seriously destroys ID just because you don't agree with it?). Isn't destroying a DND ID card a Federal offense, or at very least an offense under the National Defense Act? By the same token, isn't destroying a Federal political party membership card also a Federal offense?

When the card was still intact, I did manage to get some discounts at a whole bunch of places, from wobbly pops to packs of gum, the best of which was a discount that I got at a Stevie Wonder concert in the US since the clerk was nice enough to realize that Canada and the USA are allies :) .

Actually, so far as YHZ is concerned, Park N Fly offers a discount to just about anyone that can find a way to be deserving of it. My wife and I got back from Cuba a couple of weeks back and rather than park where I normally do, down at the airport hotel, we decided to throw the car in at Park N Fly. On the way out we had a Comissionaire stop us and ask if any of us were military. Upon saying no he asked if any of us were government. No again and he asks who we work for then. Wife says SNC Lavalin and he says that we get a discount, do we have our card? No. Don't worry, he'll sort it out. 90 odd bucks knocked down to 68.

Those are the definitive ones that my family has personally used. 
If I come across more in my shopping travels, I will definitely add to this thread.

Treadmill Factory has a military discount on the TRC FORCE Tactical kit, plus this item comes with free shipping.  With the discount, I paid $160 + tax, without the discount you'd pay $239 + tax.  Type "Military" in the coupon code box when you check out.

Since the launch of a special program in 2010, more than 76,000 members of the military and their families have travelled within Canada on VIA Rail (viarail.ca (http://www.viarail.ca/)) trains.

Among the 76,000 military travelers, destinations within the Québec - Windsor Corridor were the most popular, with close to 90% choosing the area, and a quarter of these travelled between Montréal and Toronto.

muskrat -- perfectly acceptable.  As a member of the military you are a Crown employee and entitled to ask for a government rate.

Some hoteliers may only offer a reduced rate when on government business and subject to other conditions, but I have never been asked this.  I have only been asked to show government ID.

Since I don't have my military ID yet, my customs badge has usually sufficed.   ;)

Better watch the rate, some charge a higher rate when you ask for the Government Rate. It's happend to me.

I'm very surprised that Air Canada would do this.
 On 12 May 14 Air Canada announced a new baggage policy for CAF members, active or retired.
The new policy states that members are allowed up to 3 bags each weighing no more than 32kgs (70lbs) with valid military ID.
The Air Canada Ref # is ACP 685071 – Military Baggage if you have a problem at the check in counter.
The process for ensuring that you do not pay for extra bags when checking in online, is to pick that you have 1 bag to check. Once you arrive at the airport you go up to the check in counter, inform them you’re military, show them your ID and then tell them you have an additional 1 or 2 bags. They will then check your bags free of charge.

For those in the Victoria BC area. Progressive Auto is a reputable friendly, knowledgeable auto repair facility that offers a Military Discount. They said they fully support the Military and are proud to offer the discount. I was there yesterday for an oil change and was impressed.  Saved about 10.00 on my oil change and the service advisor said the discount didn't make a huge difference on my oil change, I replied maybe not a big difference but having the "we offer a discount to Military Members" sign on the counter was worth it to me.

I registered for a Petro-Canada™ fuel savings program that was conducted for the Kingston base last year. Do I have to register again for this national Canadian Forces Fuel Saving Program?
Yes, you will have to register again in order to participate because this is a different program.

Please register online

Any remaining balance on the Preferred Price™ card that you received in the Kingston program can be used until Nov. 30, 2016.

I take a GO bus to get to my armoury because I'm at school in a different city, and if I ride in uniform then the driver usually won't let me pay, which is a big help because it's $12 each way. It depends on the driver though, so you always have to be ready to pay and not rely on it being free.

Same with TTC, although less common. A few times I've dropped a token in and the person behind the desk actually ran after me to give me a free ride ticket.

Only police are authorized to ride free ( Good for you if the operator gives you a free-ride  :) ):

"No fare is required to be paid by a police officer as defined in Section 2 of the Police Services Act, R.S.O. 1990, Chapter P.15 or a police officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police who is in possession of the official identification issued by the police services engaging such officer. For greater certainty, the benefit of this provision does not extend to any special constable, First Nations Constable, by-law enforcement officer, or any auxiliary or civilian member of a police force."

I have just tried it on a Nissan 2015 Frontier Crew Cab. It was worth about $1250 off of MSRP on a $36000 purchase with 0% financing. I would have got $3750 additional off if I paid cash.

A little better than being a Costco member with Ford.

I did not use the offer.

Porter Airlines offers a 10% discount to CAF personnel and veterans with a CFOne Card.

Quote
In appreciation of everything you do Porter Airlines now offers 10% discounted on regular price air fares for currently serving members and Veterans of the CAF + two guests traveling with them.

Plus, Porter has quietly changed their checked luggage policy to offer up to three free bags for military travellers.

Quote
What is Porter’s checked baggage policy for military personnel?

Canadian and US military personnel are eligible for an enhanced baggage allowance when they fly on a Porter operated flight. Baggage fees will be waived for up to 3 pieces of checked baggage per person, as long as the following conditions are met:

No single piece can exceed 203 cm (80 in) total dimension or weigh more than 32 kg (70lb).
Military identification must be shown at airport check in.
Military personnel may be active or retired.
Military personnel may be travelling for business or personal reasons.

If you meet these requirements, please have your bags tagged and checked at the airport to take advantage of the enhanced baggage allowance. If you check in on line or at an airport kiosk, you should indicate that you are travelling without checked bags.

Note: Family members or friends travelling on the same or separate reservation are not eligible for the enhanced baggage allowance.

I recieved mine yesterday in the mail - the silver one. And I saw the "Porter" logo on one of the inserts... never knew. That's a good one. I think it identifies your service to the civilian sector... mine says "Canadian Forces Member" or something like that, but there are a few pics of the card, one of which says "Veteran"...

I've taken advantage of the Porter CAF perks on occasion. Besides the perks, I've found the people at Porter make other airlines look like they are operating out of Lower Slobovia (oldsters will know where that is  ;) )

We once (or twice...) patrolled the AOR between Lower Slobovia and Middle Fantasia. Those Dudaninan forces were relentless!!

Back-posture or shoulder problems.? This company offers a military discount of 50% on their "posture performance shirt" This product was seen on the Dragon's Den on CBC. I have just purchased one and wanted to pass on the discount Adrenal-Ease offered when I asked. Should you wish to purchase online, they accept Visa, MC Paypal etc.

Make sure you type HALF50 in the coupon box for your discount.

Tapion House is a guest house in the Tapion District of Castries, St Lucia, West Indies, that overlooks lovely Tapion Bay.  My wife and I run the place and we are both veterans of the Canadian Army, having some 45 years of service between the two of us.  We offer a 10% discount to all current and former serving CF personnel as well as police forces.  This also extends to all member nations of the Commonwealth and NATO.  This discount is in addition to and cumulative with all of our other offers and discounts.

For example, we provide a 10% discount for all guests staying a week or more.  So, a military member staying with us for a week would receive a 20% discount.  We have two suites, each with their own rate, however the Ocean View Suite is currently rented on a long-term basis until December 2016.  Our Garden View Suite has a daily rate of $75 USD/night, but for a military member or veteran staying a week or longer, the rate drops to $60 USD/night.

Additionally, for all our guests staying a week or more, we provide at no charge and with our compliments your choice of four of the following:

a.  a bottle of white wine (Yellow Tail or similar);

b.  a bottle of red wine (Yellow Tail or similar);

c.  a 1 litre "growler" of Antillia Brewing Company's finest pale ale, stout, wheat ale or seasonal ale (flavoured with tropical treats like mango, passion fruit, starfruit, etc); or

d.  a dozen Piton Beer.

If you prefer, we would definitely remove the alcohol and substitute an equivalent value of bottled water, juice, soda or other beverages of your choice. 

In addition to the beverages, we also provide a $100 XCD credit to you and we will lay in the groceries of your choosing.  This way, when you arrive, you don't have to worry about grocery shopping until after breakfast the next day.

Wifi is free as is parking.  VAT is included in all our rates.  There is no cleaning fee when you leave, we do not charge additional person fees and parking is likewise complimentary.

Our Garden View Suite has two bedrooms (Queen Bed in the master, double bed in the junior), a full kitchen with all pots, pans, cutlery, dishes, etc, air conditioning, a beautiful balcony and in suite laundry facilities.

We can be found on VRBO, AirBnB, Trip Advisor, FlipKey, Facebook, Twitter and of course, at our website of www.tapionhouse.com.  Always feel free to write us at tapionhouse@hotmail.com or tapionhouse@gmail.com or call Don at 758-723-2230 or Doris at 758-723-2174.

Thank you all for your service and we would love to see you down here and share the beauty and culture of St Lucia with you!

I've heard a few times that as military/gov't workers Rogers offers a 30% discount on all plans, even our personal ones. Yet I tried calling to apply, and they responded with something along the lines of "Talk to your HR representative and they will give you some sort of access code and you would send us an email from your work email address and we would then be able to see what kind of discount you get".
My first question is has anyone done this successfully, and secondly, who would be our HR folks? I'm currently on parental so I'm not to sure how to go about this.
Thanks

Hey everyone... I'm new to this site and have a question regarding the Military Discounts.
I'm a Veteran of the Reserves and served in the early 90's, and was curious what would acceptable ID be.  All i have is an CF1 card.
All I had when I served was a paper id with my service number, unit and rank which is long gone now.

Thanks

You could look here:  https://cfappreciation.ca/  or in this thread: https://army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,741.0.html

In many cases it is a local authorized dealer that offers this discount and not the corporate entity, i.e., Rogers or Telus. The duration of the offer will vary with local affiliated dealer and the related sales volumes.  In most cases the Corporate entity will have no idea about the discount so you need to see/contact the local store.

Examples: In 2014 this was the discount program through Getconnected:

Exclusive offer for CAF Members!

$30 per month:
1000 Anytime Minutes Local Calling
Unlimited Text, Picture & Video Messaging

Yea this is what I'm looking for, the 30% of any plans they have available. Where can I get any current plan on market and add the 30% discount? Or what is the procedure?

Simian Turner, thank you for the info, but I'm not looking for plans "specific" for us. I'm looking to be able to apply a 30% discount to any plan I wish to go with that is publicly available on Rogers/Telus website.

I believe the Rogers discount is 30% off their Share Everything. It can be limited though, so check through CF appreciation and find the dealer website. Just do a search for Rogers and it should be one of the only hits.

Sent an email to Home Depot re the price of an wet/dry vac made in Mexico (NAFTA). Price: US $99, less military discount $89. Cost in Canada $179. This is the reply. Does anyone know this project and what Home Depot did?

Thank you for contacting The Home Depot Customer Care.

We do not price match our US counterpart. Pricing is a complicated issue and prices continue to be different in Canadian and U.S. stores, due to factors such as transportation costs, distribution differences, Canadian packaging standards, labor laws, and the price at which products were purchased.

We are committed to delivering value to the Canadian consumer and we will continue to look for ways to provide the most competitive prices to our valued customers.

In regard to the second inquiry regarding military discount, In Canada we honor and support our veteran customers and associates in ways that go beyond a discount for individuals.

Team Depot associates worked with The Madison Military Veteran’s Housing in Calgary, donating charitable items help improve their space. Please be informed that when it comes to providing discounts, it’s very important to The Home Depot Canada that we treat all customers and associates fairly across the country.

I apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you and Have a Great Day,

Don't know where you're at but I have other options besides Home Depot. I can just go somewhere else.

In the end, they're private corporations and can set their own policies. I don't mind military discounts but they are a merchant's decision and nice if they do but I don't lose sleep if they don't.

Welcome to Canada. I live on the border and it has always been thus. Books, magazines, cars built down the block, groceries, almost everything imaginable, except Robertson screwdrivers. Even after exchange, it's still worth it to shop over there. I saw two medium sized bags of charcoal in Ohio, they were shrinkwrapped together and selling for $5 USD, for the package.
