At Veterans Advantage, we advocate for you, as a member of Veterans Advantage, to get greater respect, recognition and rewards as a thank you for your and your family's service to the country. We do this through the creation of new benefits from our partner coalition to support our community of military veterans and their families. We deliver Veterans Advantage's year-round advocacy to grow and maintain your benefits and our technology to support easy access to your benefits in subscription-based one, three or five-year member plans.
With Veterans Advantage, you get exclusive everyday savings offers not available to the general public that are a real thank you for your service. Here are some of the behind-the-scenes details and features you are paying for with your member plan:
As our core mission, Veterans Advantage works hard to negotiate partner benefits that are exclusive discounts with real savings for our community. We don't get a markup or a cut of every sale or get paid by our partners to advertise. We advocate for any and all possible payments from our partner to go directly to you in the form of the best possible deal. We also negotiate for add extra benefits such as no blackout dates and combinability with your loyalty program points. We get partner's permission to honor you with these offers in Veterans Advantage, so you don't have hunt around and beg for a military discount.
Veterans Advantage also works hard to leverage our power as a group. We negotiate large association deals that you, as an individual, would not get if you did not belong to a "dues-paying" organization like Veterans Advantage.
On top of that, we use our group purchasing power to negotiate some amazing benefits that we include with your member plan called "OurCAREPackage". Among the many valuable, even life-saving, benefits, provided at no additional cost to you, are $50,000 of Global Emergency MedEvac from Travel Guard, the leader in travel insurance, that covers you anytime you are more than 100 miles from your home, and $5,000 of Accidental Death "AD&D" insurance, with no medical exam required or age limits. Your immediate family members are also eligible for this same benefits coverage with their own VetRewards Card.
Right from the start of your enrollment, without any waiting period and at no additional charge, we deliver you OurCAREPackage, providing you essential benefits that no-one should be without. Our exclusive partner discounts aside, this included benefit coverage, which would cost you more than $1,000 a year if you purchased it on your own, is less than $5 a month with your member plan. You can't beat that.
Lastly, but most importantly, at Veterans Advantage we take veterans' privacy seriously. We have built-in privacy protection as a core feature of Veterans Advantage. We do not require your sensitive information to enroll, and use patent-pending secure verify technology to power your VetRewards Card for easy benefit redemption online, by toll free phone and at store locations. If by chance your card is lost or stolen card, there is nothing on it that can be used to compromise your identity. We simply provide you a replacement card.
All pretty great! However, we are not government funded, and do not receive grants or other outside sources of funding. With our respect for our member's privacy, our strong privacy provisions mean we will never sell member's data in order to make our member services 'free'. In support of our mission, and to create and maintain secure benefits for our community, we charge a very low member plan fee and give you the benefit of half off your primary plan for your immediate family coverage.
Please note: You may encounter other so-called "free" military discount programs online have hidden dangers that can prove to be very costly. These operations will collect your sensitive personal information to verify your military status and require you to scan or upload your government military ID (against the law) or DD-214 that contain highly sensitive personal information, such as your Social Security Number. And, never give your last 4 digits of your SSN.This data can be easily mishandled, lost or stolen by a poorly-trained or unsupervised employee, which puts you at higher risk for identity theft, among other security risks.
