DoGet Discounts at Walmart?
Unfortunately, Walmart does not offer a military or veteran discount.
The most likely reason why is that Walmart already offers the lowest prices on most common items when compared to major competitors. By shopping at Walmart, shoppers are already receiving “discounts” when compared to typical market prices.
Walmart alo other ways to save throughout the year, including rollback sales, coupons, and more.

Veteran Discount Qualification
To qualify for a veteran discount, you typically need to be able to provide some form of veteran-specific identification.
Some examples of veteran IDs include…
- A Veteran ID Card (VIC)
- A Veteran Health Identification Card (VHIC)
- A state-issued driver’s license with a veteran’s designation
In many cases, military spouses can also qualify for military and veteran discounts. However, there may be a process for applying for the discount so that the retailer can verify your military or veteran spouse status.
