For the eighth year in a row, Great Clips is again showing its appreciation for active and retired military service members by offering free haircuts on Veterans Day.
On Wednesday, Nov. 11, veterans and active military service members can visit any Great Clips salon in the U.S. and get a free haircut or a voucher for a free haircut to use at another time. Non-veteran customers getting a haircut at a Great Clips salon on Veterans Day will also receive a free haircut voucher to give to a military service member or veteran.
New this year, Great Clips is also asking fans to nominate a retired or active service member in their life to give them a chance to receive free haircuts for a year at any Great Clips salon, plus a $350 gift card.
To nominate someone, just post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the full name of your nominee. Include their branch of service and why you’re nominating them. Include the hashtag #GREATful4Vets and tag Great Clips at @GreatClips. Over three weeks, Great Clips will randomly select two nominees a week (six total) to be celebrated on its social media channels.
Numerous other businesses are also offering up discounts or free things to veterans.
If you’re looking for some free grub, Applebee’s and Chili’s will both be offering all veterans and active-duty military members a free meal on Nov. 11, while Outback Steakhouse is offering a free Bloomin’ Onion and Coke product to all active and retired military.
Outback already offers a 10% discount to veterans every day. Bonefish Grill also offers 10% for all service members, veterans and first responders year-round.
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store will also be offering all military veterans a complimentary slice of Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola Cake when they dine at any Cracker Barrel location nationwide on Nov. 11.
Cracker Barrel will also donate a $10 gift card to Operation Homefront for each Country Fried Turkey Family Meal Basket sold in November.
