Veterans Day Amazon Prime Military Discount – 33% Off!
The first time I tried signing up for the Veterans Day Amazon Prime military discount it couldn't verify my military service.
I tried again a few hours later and it worked great! Here's what the checkout cart looked like once I successfully added the One Year Membership to my card:
You'll see when you add the membership to your cart it will go in full price and then the “Military Offer” will be listed at -$40.00. See the image below.
After that I just checked out and added an extra year to my Amazon Prime Membership! Very easy.
