Does Walmart Give Veteran Discounts?

Walmart does not provide military veterans a discount. In an experiment done at four Walmart locations in Southern California, shoppers with military identification were denied a discount 48 times out of 48.

In a follow-up email, a Walmart customer service representative informed GruntRoll, the experiment’s sponsor, that Walmart does not offer a military discount but does support the troops in other ways. In 2010, Walmart contributed $10 million to the veteran community in an effort to combat unemployment and boost higher education. In 2011, Walmart quadrupled this contribution to $20 million.

Walmart vowed to hire one hundred thousand veterans by 2018 The distribution centre for Walmart in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, employs more than 200 veterans. In 2013, the corporation donated $1.5 million to Operation Homefront, supplying more than 25,000 toys and over 17,000 meals to military families across the country.

The shop is a prime sponsor of the SCORE Veterans Entrepreneurship Program, which helps veterans in transition launch small businesses. It recognises fallen heroes through Wreaths Across America, an organisation that organises wreath-laying rituals at the graves of veterans who have died in service to their country.

The Walmart Foundation contributed $3,600,000 to assist military people in obtaining college degrees. Sam Walton, the company’s founder, served in the United States Army during World War II.
