?‍♂️Either give them something or don't. It's a music service not a cell phone deal.

As a veteran myself, I find a lot of these offerings off putting. Let us be honest most places are doing it for PR only and the offerings suck to be honest. I like the offering from my local bar. 2 free beers and and a free dozen wings.

As a Veteran myself, we need stop with all these pointless congratulatory holidays, including Veterans day. Admiration is not why we served. Neither is the reason we have children(Parent Day's). Or what ever dumb look-a-me holiday we come up with. Holidays should be about remembrance not recognition, i.e., Memorial Day.

I have my own Remembrance Day every year on 6/6 to remember D-Day. Usually I spend some time thinking about how grateful I am to the greatest generation and their sacrifices for us all. I’m Swedish, and my country was weak and acted cowardly during WW2. And I feel grateful that other nations kept Sweden from becoming a nazistate. No achievement in my phone is required. Thank you.

Is there nothing that doesn't have to be turned into a consumer event? To me, Remembrance Day is about recognition of those who've died, not a few discounts and offers for those serving. Sure, you can offer those any other time you like, but maybe just focus on the more important things once a year, and do it with a bit of respect and decorum?
