Back to School Savings: Even More for Our Military and Veteran Families

Saturday, August 16th, 2014

As part of our ongoing coverage of student discounts – students across America are gearing up to go back to school. Veterans Advantage offers a great travel package for them, including discounts on Greyhound Bus and United Airlines.

And keep in mind that when you enroll your children in a family membership and they’re traveling more than 100 miles from home (like my three traveling to college), you are covered with $50,000 of Emergency MEDEVAC insurance, as part of our Prepaid Benefits Plan. Be sure to get this coverage so you can have some peace of mind when the kids are going back to school!

Speaking of student discounts, Coleman honors America’s Veterans with 30% OFF a wide variety of top quality products, including coolers, airbeds, and backpacks, perfect for any dorm.

Finally, for you Social Media fans, thanks to Coleman for its recent support of Veterans Advantage on Facebook.

Happy New Year 2014, and we hope the holiday season has been good to you and those near and dear to you. As the calendar turns to a fresh new page, we wanted to offer a Veterans Advantage membership checklist of how to succeed with your 2014 Resolutions. These will improve the quality of your life and finances in the coming year and every day.

This is part of our Exclusive Benefits Plan, which is packed with so many other great features, including $55,000 in insurance coverage.

3. Get Fit: Start a gym membership, and search for great rates in your area, which includes all the major health club chains and even many smaller local gyms.

4. Start new household services: Start a new plan with Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile for your telecommunications; DIRECTV for home entertainment; ADT for home security.

Happy Holidays from Veterans Advantage: Reflections on a Benefit-Filled Year

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

We at Veterans Advantage wish you a happy and safe holiday season — and a peaceful and joyous 2014. Reflecting back on the last year, there are many things we are grateful for, and more on the road ahead that gives us hope.

From the standpoint of new benefits for our members in 2013, we were glad to have added a new travel partner, Lufthansa Airlines, who has generously created an exclusive everyday discount for Veterans Advantage Members.

And we are also grateful for our loyal partners who have found ways to expand our partnerships with an even richer benefits package for our members:

Meanwhile, across our nation, thousands more of our Post-9/11 Era Veterans continue to transition back to civilian life. We hold positive thoughts for a successful future for all of them, and wish America’s corporations support their efforts with more jobs in 2014. Help spread the word about our free Jobs and Career Network for Veteran job candidates and the employers who want to hire them.

And, of course, no holiday would be complete without a sense of gratitude for our military and veteran families. Thank you all for the gifts that come with our nation’s freedom.

Veterans Advantage Field Report: Shop with Safety and Security

Monday, December 9th, 2013

With holiday shopping now full steam ahead, Veterans Advantage is doing its part to make sure it is a happy and memorable time of year for you. In addition to our ongoing member communications highlighting the latest recommendations for shopping and travel this holiday season, we are also educating military and veteran families about how to shop safely and securely.

To best protect themselves and their families from becoming victims of identity theft this holiday season, Veterans Advantage recommends that all members of the U.S. military community be more vigilant in self-administering the following four protocols:


1. Be Safe: Never use your Social Security Number, DD214, birth date, mother’s maiden name, or other highly sensitive personal information to obtain a merchant discount. This is considered an ‘overreaching data’ requirement.

2. Be Smart: Don’t be lured by ‘free military discount offers.’ Understand that nothing is free, and that something has to fund the company operations. Personal data is often sold, rented or shared to generate revenues, compromising personal and financial security.

3. Be Suspicious: Dig deep to find how your data is used, and where you data is going. Be especially wary of start-up organizations without an established business history, as they can be more susceptible to bankruptcies, mergers or sale of your data to an unknown party, sometimes outside the country and outside the reach of U.S. law.

4. Be Secure: Data grabs are big business today. Only do business with trusted organizations with a longstanding record of protecting veterans and their interests. Frequent companies that do not require overreaching data or your government issued IDs to access their military discounts.
