What's our story?
In response to a lack of respect for our veterans after Vietnam, Scott began to dedicate his time to helping his fellow veterans. HIs work to build the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial inspired Scott and Lin to create Veterans Advantage as a way to thank you every day.
The first national military discounts in America began when Veterans Advantage forged an exclusive discount with Amtrak, our national passenger railroad, and launched the VetRewards Card on Presidents Day, 2001. Their first member signed up from a nuclear submarine stationed in the Pacific, at 2:30AM.
