San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
TroopSwap.com is partnering with local San Diego businesses to make it easy for verified members of the military community to claim military discounts on the go with mobile devices. Service members, veterans, and military spouses can access promotions by validating their military status for free at TroopSwap.com. Although many businesses offer military discounts, it has traditionally been difficult for businesses to verify the military affiliation of veterans and military spouses. TroopSwap solves that problem by ensuring that offers go directly to verified members of the military community, and easily connects service members and veterans with military-friendly establishments.
Jessica Tuck, TroopSwap’s San Diego market leader and the spouse of a U.S. Marine, observed, “San Diego has a large active duty military community with many veterans and retired service members. Our merchant partners are incredibly supportive of the local military community and want to thank the troops for their sacrifice and service. It’s our pleasure to help them do so.”
Peymon Kalantar, owner of The Pit Stop Auto Repair, said, “We are obtaining good clients and good business. We take great pleasure in helping military personnel and families with their vehicle needs.”
Some of the San Diego businesses currently offering military discounts include:
- Red Cup Yogurt: 10% off frozen yogurt and drinks
- Menehune Surf: Two-for-one surf lessons
- Café Coyote: 10% off food and beverage
- OEX Dive and Kayak: 30% off snorkel, kayak, and standup paddleboard rentals
- The Pit Stop Auto Repair: 10% off oil changes and any automotive repairs
TroopSwap is the first e-commerce platform designed exclusively for military and veteran families. The company is a part of Michelle Obama’s Joining Forces initiative to support military families via the Department of Defense’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership. As a veteran-owned and operated company, TroopSwap serves the military community by donating 10% of profits to the Wounded Warrior Project. TroopSwap also employs veterans and military spouses, who collectively represent over 75% of the company’s workforce.
