Looking for an Amazon Military Discount? Unfortunately, they do not have an ongoing one. They have offered a special Veterans Day discount in the past. There are however ongoing student discounts as well as a few other discounts for EBT and Medicaid recipients.

Amazon Prime Military Discount for Veterans Day

In past Novembers Amazon has offered an amazing deal on Amazon Prime to veterans and active duty military. You were able to receive a year of Amazon Prime for $79 for a few days leading up to Veterans Day. The regular price is $119 so this was a savings of $40, more than 33% off!

You were still able to qualify if you already had an Amazon Prime account and your subscription was extended for a year.


The discount was just for veterans and active duty military and not for dependents or family members, however, the whole family benefits from using Amazon Prime.
