ATLANTA - Veterans Day is Saturday.
Thank you to our veterans for their sacrifice. And thank you to the businesses out there who offer discounts and freebies this time of year.
Let's take a look at places you can visit over the Veterans Day weekend to get a price break.
At all 640-plus Cracker Barrel locations will have a Double Chocolate Fudge Coca-Cola Cake dessert. Free. Absolutely free.
Treat yourself to Red, White, and Blue pancakes Friday morning at iHop. Participating locations only. Please call ahead to verify participation.
Red Lobster. Also, Saturday you will be offered a free appetizer or dessert. Again, have your ID.
And it's not just food that's available. Great Clips is offering free haircuts. This is Saturday, but you can pick up a free haircut card to use through December 31.
Home Depot and Lowe's are offering 10 percent discounts. If you like crafts, Michael's offers a 15 percent discount to veterans every day. Toys "R" Us, with in-store purchases, will tack on discounts of 15 percent through Saturday.
