Depending on the franchise you visit, there is an Applebee’s military discount that helps anyone with a military ID “Eat Good in the Neighborhood” for that much cheaper. Enjoy up to 15% off of your check subtotal by presenting your military ID, though keep in mind some items, like alcohol, may not be available at a discounted rate.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Applebee’s Military Discount

When using your Applebee’s military discount, it’s important to understand you may have some limitations. Depending on the deals being offered and the store you visit, you may not be able to combine deals.

For example, if you order your family dinner, have a few cocktails, enjoy a deal that is already discounted, but also purchase two entrees that are regular price, your discount would likely apply to the regularly priced items.

Discounts also vary from store to store. Some may provide the military community with $5 off of their meal and others a percentage; however, the fact that there are discounts available at all is important.

Especially for a chain that understands delivering mouthwatering food at an affordable price, using your Applebee’s military discount amplifies the bargain you’re already getting.

Applebee’s is known for giving back to the military community through many different local and national initiatives and the discount is no different.

So, how do you maximize your savings? Here’s how to enjoy your local Applebee’s and save when you dine:

Join Club Applebee's

There are many reasons to join the club but the biggest is the opportunity for additional deals and free stuff.

You can get a free app for signing up but there are also daily deals that vary and offers you can enjoy ranging from more free food to exclusive discounts.

The military community can even receive a free dessert on their birthday while enjoying their favorite dishes discounted as entrees and appetizers.

Turn Happy Hour Into a Meal

Heading to an Applebee’s after a hard day of training is a great way to unwind but if you’re only going for the ice-cold beers or the $10 Bacardi Rum Buckets, you’re missing out on what could be.

At participating locations, you can find happy hours both right before the dinner rush and after.

Not only do you have options but you can take advantage of your Applebee’s military discount before or after a meal for a richer experience.

Of course, your discount for a regular entree is still good during the happy hours themselves but working hard defending our nation should entitle you to take it slow and enjoy your meal at a reasonable pace and price.

Follow Social Media

Be sure to keep a lookout on the social media pages of your local Applebee’s to stay in touch with all of the hyperlocal deals going on and specials available to the military community.

Don’t Forget to Join Applebee’s for Veteran’s Day Deals Offering Free Food

Every year, Applebee’s offers special deals for Veteran’s Day. While there are more than 1,500 stores to be found, those in the Potomac area understand the military community and invite you to join them for a free meal.

There have been more than 11.3 million free meals provided to the military community since Applebee’s has been providing them on Veteran’s Day and 2024 is looking to add to this growing tally.

It doesn’t matter if you are a Veteran or actively serving in the U.S. military, visiting Applebee’s on November 11, 2024, will get you a free hearty entrée and $5 towards your next meal.

Potomac Family Dining-Applebee’s continues to provide support through fundraisers throughout the year aimed at helping military-affiliated organizations raise funds through its stores.

Featuring locations in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, you have plenty of local options. Bring your military ID and enjoy your Applebee’s military discount at a restaurant near you!
