Veterans Day Military Discounts 2014 - Quicken Loans Zing BlogOver the years, we’ve done some pretty amazing things for our country’s servicemen and servicewomen. We’ve held the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic, supported our troops the NASCAR way at the Quicken Loans 500, celebrated the Salute to Service game with the Detroit Lions, built homes for homeless veterans, supported our wounded warriors, built strong partnerships with VSOs like IAVA and Operation Homefront, and reunited families with Miles for Military.

We do something to honor veterans every day, whether it’s providing VA loans so service members and their families have a place to call home, or helping veterans transition to careers through our incredible veteran hiring program. Helping those who have served our country is who we are.

In addition to sharing how we plan to support our 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!

Don’t forget to bring your proof of military service!
