Benefits Update: Save on Summer Essentials for Healthy Summer Fun

scott higins

Lin and I just completed a cross-country drive over the past weekend to the northern woods of Michigan for a stay at our family summer cabin. During the drive, we were continually struck by the beauty of our amazing country, and in celebrating our nation’s 244th birthday last Saturday, we consider how fortunate we are to live here. We hope this past holiday weekend was similarly important to you. Thank you for your and your family’s service to the country and for preserving the freedoms we hold so dearly. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage in so many parts of our country, we were reminded throughout our trip of the need to continue to take precautions and to follow the recommended health safety protocols. We wore our face masks at gas stations and practiced social distancing when staying for two nights in campgrounds. 

At Veterans Advantage, we sincerely care about helping you maintain your health and safety, too. Our VetRewards partners offer you contactless and free shipping options, together with great savings. We are doing our part to help enhance safe access to these exclusive offers with our 50% OFF COVID-19 sale, our best offer ever. 

Here are some thoughts and tips we want to share with you from our journey: 

Due to coronavirus, we’re all advised to stay away from indoor gatherings and stay outdoors as much as possible this summer for recreational pursuits. Hence, our decision to camp out while on the road, and we were fortunate to stay in beautiful campsites. The proper clothing and gear can help you really enjoy the outdoors. When you shop our exclusive deals with ExpertVoice, you get up to 70% off men’s, women’s and kid’s clothing and shoes designed for the outdoors from some of the best brands like Outdoor Research, Merrell, Black Diamond, and Carhartt, that can be shipped nationwide to your home. 

We also wanted to pack light with clothing designed for summer activities. Orvis offers 10% off combinable with other sitewide sales or discounts on outdoor men’s and women’s clothing, luggage, and other gear for your home or dog. For our trip, Lin purchased Orvis’ Equinox Eco fleece vest, the Ennis tech shirt for easy movement, comfortable stretch, and UPF 30 sun protection, and stretchy, quick-drying Jackson women’s capri-length pants with knee gussets that allow for a maximum range of motion that are practical and comfortable for driving and camping and suitable for hiking and fishing. 

Too often bugs and insects can turn a beautiful summer evening into an annoying endeavor. The bug repellant and itch cream we purchased from CVS/pharmacy proved essential to our enjoying our evenings outdoors. CVS Pharmacy has a wide number of lotion and spray options, as well as sunscreen and much-needed medication for allergy relief. You can shop our Veterans Advantage online CVS/pharmacy store with 20% off built into the basket exclusively for our members enrolled in VetRewards. Your exclusive savings are combinable with all other sitewide promotions, coupons, and ExtraCare savings. For an additional perk, you also receive FREE shipping, no matter the size of your order, with no minimum purchase requirement. 

During the day, we were prepared with First-Aid gear for a few hikes in the woods to stretch our legs and get some exercise. We shopped at 7-Eleven for our First-Aid basics as well as snacks and drinks to fight dehydration from the heat. When you download the 7-Eleven app, you can link your Veterans Advantage account to your 7-Eleven account. At the checkout counter in stores, you simply swipe the app on your mobile phone, and you’re awarded an exclusive 300 7Rewards Bonus Points for purchases of $10 or more, and an exclusive 1000 7Rewards Bonus Points with your VetRewards premium subscription. With 1000 points, you’re on your way to a free drink or meal. 

If you’re like us and leave your primary residence this summer, it's essential to keep your home property safe. Kangaroo offers its Home Security Starter Kit to monitor your house from afar with 30% off the Kangaroo 8 piece security kit so you can get started right away. Kangaroo home security equipment is simple to install, very affordable and a popular item on Amazon (at a higher cost, of course) with over 4.1 out of 5 stars from over 1,105 ratings. 

To gain access to these and other valuable savings benefits, enroll in VetRewards! You’ll get the exclusive access we’ve created to enhance your lifestyle with savings on summer supplies, so you can enjoy the summer fun. To do our part at Veterans Advantage during the pandemic, we’re offering our best offer, 50% OFF VetRewards, for you and your family. 

Thank you for being part of our Veterans Advantage community and we hope you’ll continue to stay safe and healthy, and enjoy the outdoors this summer. 

Respectfully yours,
