The discounts provide instant 5-10% savings on Microsoft products. This includes hardware and software.
A Microsoft Store rep also confirmed over the phone that this is also available in the physical Microsoft Stores. A military ID needs to be shown to receive the discount. If you are a veteran that served but did not retire then your best option is to shop online to receive the discount since many vets do not get ID’s after their service.
It is great to see a company like Microsoft thinking about those who serve or have previously served our country.
