Porter Airlines offers a 10% discount to CAF personnel and veterans with a CFOne Card.

Plus, Porter has quietly changed their checked luggage policy to offer up to three free bags for military travellers.

Well time to get a CFOne card.. Thanks

Got an email before Christmas that I was getting a "new" one.  Haven't seen it yet.  Is it CANEX or CANADA POST?  That is the question.

I recieved mine yesterday in the mail - the silver one. And I saw the "Porter" logo on one of the inserts... never knew. That's a good one. I think it identifies your service to the civilian sector... mine says "Canadian Forces Member" or something like that, but there are a few pics of the card, one of which says "Veteran"...

The V was too small for some to see or maybe they didn't know what the V stood for. I pointed out the V to one Air Canada agent and said he didn't know.

I've taken advantage of the Porter CAF perks on occasion. Besides the perks, I've found the people at Porter make other airlines look like they are operating out of Lower Slobovia (oldsters will know where that is  ;) )

Back-posture or shoulder problems.? This company offers a military discount of 50% on their "posture performance shirt" This product was seen on the Dragon's Den on CBC. I have just purchased one and wanted to pass on the discount Adrenal-Ease offered when I asked. Should you wish to purchase online, they accept Visa, MC Paypal etc.

Make sure you type HALF50 in the coupon box for your discount.

Tapion House is a guest house in the Tapion District of Castries, St Lucia, West Indies, that overlooks lovely Tapion Bay.  My wife and I run the place and we are both veterans of the Canadian Army, having some 45 years of service between the two of us.  We offer a 10% discount to all current and former serving CF personnel as well as police forces.  This also extends to all member nations of the Commonwealth and NATO.  This discount is in addition to and cumulative with all of our other offers and discounts.

For example, we provide a 10% discount for all guests staying a week or more.  So, a military member staying with us for a week would receive a 20% discount.  We have two suites, each with their own rate, however the Ocean View Suite is currently rented on a long-term basis until December 2016.  Our Garden View Suite has a daily rate of $75 USD/night, but for a military member or veteran staying a week or longer, the rate drops to $60 USD/night.

Additionally, for all our guests staying a week or more, we provide at no charge and with our compliments your choice of four of the following:

a.  a bottle of white wine (Yellow Tail or similar);

b.  a bottle of red wine (Yellow Tail or similar);

c.  a 1 litre "growler" of Antillia Brewing Company's finest pale ale, stout, wheat ale or seasonal ale (flavoured with tropical treats like mango, passion fruit, starfruit, etc); or

d.  a dozen Piton Beer.

If you prefer, we would definitely remove the alcohol and substitute an equivalent value of bottled water, juice, soda or other beverages of your choice. 

In addition to the beverages, we also provide a $100 XCD credit to you and we will lay in the groceries of your choosing.  This way, when you arrive, you don't have to worry about grocery shopping until after breakfast the next day.

Wifi is free as is parking.  VAT is included in all our rates.  There is no cleaning fee when you leave, we do not charge additional person fees and parking is likewise complimentary.

Our Garden View Suite has two bedrooms (Queen Bed in the master, double bed in the junior), a full kitchen with all pots, pans, cutlery, dishes, etc, air conditioning, a beautiful balcony and in suite laundry facilities.

We can be found on VRBO, AirBnB, Trip Advisor, FlipKey, Facebook, Twitter and of course, at our website of www.tapionhouse.com.  Always feel free to write us at tapionhouse@hotmail.com or tapionhouse@gmail.com or call Don at 758-723-2230 or Doris at 758-723-2174.

Thank you all for your service and we would love to see you down here and share the beauty and culture of St Lucia with you!

I've heard a few times that as military/gov't workers Rogers offers a 30% discount on all plans, even our personal ones. Yet I tried calling to apply, and they responded with something along the lines of "Talk to your HR representative and they will give you some sort of access code and you would send us an email from your work email address and we would then be able to see what kind of discount you get".
My first question is has anyone done this successfully, and secondly, who would be our HR folks? I'm currently on parental so I'm not to sure how to go about this.
Thanks

Just a shot in the dark here, but by "lower mainland" you are not referring to upper and lower Canada... I was smart see, and I put 2 and 2 together when you said Burnaby and deduced you are talking about New Brunswick... because EVERYTHING cool happens in New Brunswick...

Hey everyone... I'm new to this site and have a question regarding the Military Discounts.
I'm a Veteran of the Reserves and served in the early 90's, and was curious what would acceptable ID be.  All i have is an CF1 card.
All I had when I served was a paper id with my service number, unit and rank which is long gone now.

Thanks
