Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
A partnership between TroopSwap.com and local Hampton Roads businesses marks the first time that service members and veterans will be able to claim military discounts on the go, using a mobile device to prove their military affiliation. Service members, veterans, and military family members can access promotions by validating their military status at TroopSwap.com. Registering on the website is free, but users need to verify their military affiliation before claiming any offers. Military discounts are already offered throughout the country, but this long-term deal ensures businesses that their offers are going directly to verified members of the military community, and connects service members and veterans with military-friendly establishments.
Caitlin Horn, TroopSwap’s market leader for Hampton Roads and the proud spouse of an F-18 pilot, observed, “Hampton Roads is the largest active duty military community in the world. Our merchant partners are determined to make Hampton Roads the most military friendly community in the world too. We are delighted to help them achieve that goal.”
Stacy Butcher, owner of Hampton Roads based MasterTech Auto Care remarked, “What do we get out of working with TroopSwap? It’s simple. We get to give now in the form of a discount to service members. We get to give in the long term through TroopSwap’s donation to Wounded Warriors. Plus, we get great new clients.”
Hampton Roads businesses currently offering military discounts include:
TroopSwap is the first ecommerce platform exclusively for military and veteran families. The First Lady included TroopSwap as part of her Joining Forces initiative to support military families. A veteran-owned and operated company, TroopSwap serves the military community by donating 10% of its profits to the Wounded Warrior Project, and veterans and military spouses collectively represent over 75% of the company’s workforce.
