Ottawa's and Halifax's Airports could take a page from that book. My wife picked me up in Halifax a couple Fridays ago and it was $9!...to make matters worse, the machine ate my $10 bill so we were stuck with parking security for 45 minutes before they would let us go...and I never did get my $1 change!

We we into Michaels craft store in Bayer's Lake (Halifax) and they have an in-store advertised special.

10% Wednesdays with military ID. This discount is allowed on top of any other discount/special they are offering.
There is no mention of how long this discount will be running (no expiry date)

Jade Mine in Victoria gave me a 25% discount last week after the manager chatted with me and found out I was retired military.

Distr List

FREE PARKING - PEARSON AIRPORT

1. Pearson International Airport (Toronto) is currently providing free parking to all CF members in any of their facilities (Express, Daily, Value, etc) for either business or pleasure.

2. Process is as fol:
   
   a. Do not pay your parking fee on the various orange machines;
   b. On exiting the parking, identify yourself with your valid CF id to the attendant;
   c. Exit for free.

3. This is an initiative from the Toronto Pearson Airport as part of their "Support the Troops" programme. Note that there is no expiry date on this promotion so it is advisable to check with the airport prior to exiting the facility to ensure the programme is still in effect on your next trip. Questions must be directed to Toronto Pearson Airport customer relations as the unit does not have any further information.

I'm going to drive all the way there and use it, because the only other free thing in Cabbagetown is STDs ;D

FREE PARKING - PEARSON AIRPORT - RESCINDED

Ref. Email "FREE PARKING - PEARSON AIRPORT" dated 3-Apr-12 1648hrs.

1. It was communicated today from higher HQ that the original message (ref email) about the free parking programme at Pearson Airport was, in fact, non-existent. Below is an excerpt from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority Guest Experience:

        "Recently, our Guest Experience team has received an influx of inquiries from Canadian Forces personnel regarding discounted/free parking rates at Toronto Pearson facilities. While we support our military personnel, currently we do not offer discounted rates for parking in our garages."

2. Questions can be directed to Pearson International Airport for further clarification.

Apparently all outlets of WokBox in Halifax Nova Scotia offer a 10/15% discount to DND.

Old NAvy at the Rideau Centre in Ottawa was offering 10% for "Military Monday" earlier this week; no idea if it's weekly / monthly / one time though.

 Negative, but if you have CAA they give 20% off.

Shame some ultra left-wing nutbar got hold of my Temporary CF ID and proceeded to burn it along with my Conservative Party of Canada Membership Card :evil: because he thought that by golly since I had an ID card AND I was a Conservative, I was likely to pillage Afghan villages....despite the fact that I was never once on tour   :( . In typical leftist form, he did this while I wasn't even around to save himself a series of swift kicks to the rear. Had I been around, not only would I still have my card, but this leftist in question would have had a nice fat lip and some bruises to sport (I know this isn't exactly the best examples of integrity.....but who seriously destroys ID just because you don't agree with it?). Isn't destroying a DND ID card a Federal offense, or at very least an offense under the National Defense Act? By the same token, isn't destroying a Federal political party membership card also a Federal offense?

When the card was still intact, I did manage to get some discounts at a whole bunch of places, from wobbly pops to packs of gum, the best of which was a discount that I got at a Stevie Wonder concert in the US since the clerk was nice enough to realize that Canada and the USA are allies :) .

I guess Park and Fly actually does give a 20% military discount , just show ID when paying. Figured I would save the crown a few bucks.

Park N fly DOES offer Military discounts.

It was mentioned many pages ago, but Oakley offers a military discount.

PEOPLES jewelers offer a nice discount. 10% base discount, plus an additional discount is you have been on tour, plus an additional discount if you are in specific trades.

Enjoy buying your engagements on the cheap :)

Actually, so far as YHZ is concerned, Park N Fly offers a discount to just about anyone that can find a way to be deserving of it. My wife and I got back from Cuba a couple of weeks back and rather than park where I normally do, down at the airport hotel, we decided to throw the car in at Park N Fly. On the way out we had a Comissionaire stop us and ask if any of us were military. Upon saying no he asked if any of us were government. No again and he asks who we work for then. Wife says SNC Lavalin and he says that we get a discount, do we have our card? No. Don't worry, he'll sort it out. 90 odd bucks knocked down to 68.

Nice fellas.
Be nice for no reason.

DVC has a HUGE discount for memberships and day passes. I originally posted 10% discount but it's posted on their website:

MILITARY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT: $150 (Tax included)

This is a membership designated for all those who serve and protect this city, province and country. You must be an active member of a Military and/or Law Enforcement agency in order to qualify for this membership. This membership is valid at all times that the range is open and also allows access to our firearms with a PAL. Members using our firearms must use our ammunition.

Compared to a full membership for $300, that's a 50% discount.

They've also got a day pass discount as well:

Daily admission for law enforcement and military $20.00
(Must have badge, valid identification)

Compared to their regular price which is $30.

To elaborate:
WestJet will waive all baggage fees for any military personnel, including those from other countries, upon presentation of military identification. This means that any military personnel may travel for business or pleasure, in uniform or civilian clothing, with a maximum of four checked bags at no additional charge. However, items that exceed maximum permitted size or weight will not be accepted as these items must still be shipped via cargo.

Regarding the Westjet baggage waiver:  This also applies to retired members in possession of a Record of Service card. 

See http://www.facebook.com/westjet/posts/300465326646739, where one poster asks "Does this include retired military personnel?", and Westjet responds "As long as the individual has Military ID (including a Record of Service Card) they will be included".  There is also a link there to the actual Westjet press release.

Has anyone used Park'n Fly lately, more specifically near Pearson.?  I will be using that service this November as a person on Retirement Leave. Was wondering if the discount applies to Retired persons also.
