A few days before Veterans Day of last year, there were many businesses who wanted to try and find a way to honor our men and women in uniform. Besides, without the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the freedoms that we have every day in America. Market Wired did a report that listed multiple businesses who did just that – offered incentives, discounts and programs that would benefit our members of the military. One of those places was Toolbarn, an online retailer for some of the nicest tools on the market.
While many businesses only had discounts that lasted during the hours of Veteran’s Day, Toolbarn decided to take it a little further. They began what they call their Military Discount Program, one that applies to not only current members of the armed forces but to all veterans and retiree’s as well. What the program offers is a 5% discount on all products offered on the Toolbarn website, whether they are air tools, hand tools, power tools, or any other of the products that qualify for the discount. If a service member is interested in applying, then it is really easy to do.
The first thing is to visit the official website, which is Toolbarn.com. When you visit the home page, look up near the top of it for the icon that reads “Specials”. Hover over it, and a few orange boxes will appear on the screen, one of them that reads ‘5% Military Discount Program’. When you click on it, you will be redirected to a page that has a set of steps that you must perform in order to get quickly signed up for the program.
The first thing you must do is get yourself a Toolbarn account set up, which is a snap. Under ‘Step 1’ there is a link for you to click that takes you to the ‘Create an Account’ page. All you do here is fill in your first and last name along with your email address. Then think of a password that you can easily remember, type it in, then click the ‘Create an Account’ tab below right below where you typed in your password. When you do, you’ll get sent to your account page on their website, where you can sign up for their free newsletter and type in a default shipping and billing address.
Now, go back up to the ‘Specials’ tab at the top of the page, the same one from before, and click on the 5% Military Discount orange box again to get redirected back to the four steps. Skip Step 2 for the moment, which is simply to start shopping, because you want to get finished with getting signed up for the program first. Look under Step 3, and you’ll see a link that reads ‘click here to fill out required form’. The verification process is sometimes instant, but other times they may ask for military associated documentation. They accept mostly all types of this, such as your DD-214 or your NGB-22. Once you get signed up, all you have to do is type in ‘TBMilitary’ at your Toolbarn checkout, and you’ll have your well-deserved military discount!
