  4. Veterans Day Discounts 2015
Military men lifting an American flag on a hillsideWe try to make every day Veterans Day at Quicken Loans. Whether we’re providing VA loans to service members and their families, or helping veterans transition to careers through our incredible Veteran Hiring program, helping veterans is one of our top priorities.

Another way we show our support to veterans is through our programs like the Salute to Service game with the Detroit Lions, the Wounded Warrior Project and our very own Miles for Military, along with several helpful articles here on Zing.

In addition to sharing how we care about and support veterans, I wanted to highlight some of the ways other places are showing their support through discounts on their services. If you’re a veteran, be sure to check out some of these deals. They’re pretty good. If you’re not a veteran, make sure you pass this along to someone who is!

Keep in mind, all the listed discounts are for Veterans Day only, unless otherwise specified. And don’t forget to bring your proof of military service!
