If anyone will be in the Clearwater Florida area the aquarium there is free to active duty and their dependents. This is the aquarium where Winter from A Dolphin Tale lives. We went in July and it was pretty neat.

Most are paperback. It is free to sign up and then it's under the recreation tab on the home page. They mail them to you.

Always ask for a discount, some places don't always do them but will do it as a one time thing if you ask and others it varies by location or local manager.
Because this post was bumped somewhat recently I wanted to quote myself and change things. Military One Source no longer offers free books at all.

AKO library still has them online.

My knight in shining armor turned out to be a soldier in combat boots.

Raisin' Canes has a 10% discount
La Nouba at DTD has amazing discounts, you just have to book in person

My all time favorite though are the Southwest discounts. They vary by flight and you have to call, but in my experience they are VERY generous!

Some good info on here.. I didn't see Knott's Berry Farm on here, might have missed it though.
In November and December months Knott's Berry Farm has an AWESOME promotion to active, retired, and veteran appreciation .. the service member and a guest get in FREE and can buy up to 6 tickets for $19 each!! PLUS you can get a discount at the Knott's Hotel too!! We have been going every year for the past 6 yrs.. lots of fun especially if you have smaller kids!

Showcase Cinemas give a very generous discount. $5.00 to all movies before 6pm and $7.00 to all movies after 6pm. Includes Lux Level and Imax/3d movies.
Says online it ioncludes dependants, sometimes at the theatre they try to tell me its for the member only.

Any rank can use H&R Block online for free through Military One Source--for federal and state, and even if you have schedules to add on. We have a rental property now and I as sure I'd have to pay for at least the upgrade, but the key code I got covered the whole preparation bill (Over $100!)
