Recently, I visited one of the 59 Premium Outlets located throughout the U.S. This one was about an hour or so from my home in Maryland and located over in the Eastern Shore area of the state (Queenstown). The Premium Outlets proclaim everyday savings from 25-75% off retail prices. Well, I probably can attest to that. Most of the items that I saw were less expensive from other mall locations. Also, what I didn't know until I stumbled upon the Information Office, was that most of the stores at the outlets offered some type of military discount (additional 10-20%) off the everyday listed prices. Also, at the Queenstown, Maryland outlet we visited, they also offered AAA discounts, if you are a member.
There are also five (5) outlet centers throughout the U.S. and 12 international Premium locations. I don't know if these centers and international locations offer discounts similar to the Premium Outlets within the 50 states but let me know if you visit and they do indeed offer military discounts and I'll pass it along.
So, make sure the next time you visit a Premium Outlets location, you stop by the Information Office and obtain your listing of stores that offer military discounts at your location. For you Marylanders, here's the recent listing I obtained from the Queenstown location.
