Have your spouse make the purchase. If you're a spouse of a veteran, you won't receive the same perks and can't verify your own status the way spouses of active duty military can. However, if you're in the same household and sharing finances anyway, it's worth seeing if your spouse feels comfortable placing the order themselves, or even sharing their login information with you so that you can shop under their name.

Shop the We Made Too Much sales regularly. This part of lululemon's site is always available to shop and is updated at least once a week on every Thursday. Since the lululemon military discount can be applied to these items, it's worth prioritizing shopping from this section in an effort to maximize your savings.

  • Self-employed personal trainers
  • Studio/gym owners or managers
  • Athletes
  • Coaches
  • Team staff

Be prepared to submit information like your role and the company you work for, as well as uploading specific documents as proof of your eligibility. Once you're approved, you can shop in-store, online, or via the app. Unlike the military discount, these savings aren't eligible on other discounts, so you won't be able to save extra on things like We Made Too Much. Additionally, it can't be stacked with promotional events like Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day, or Warehouse Sales. This program is also eligible only for purchases you make for yourself and#8212; it can't be used on items for gifting or for reselling.

If you're shopping online, you can redeem your discount by toggling the appropriate box during the checkout process.

They'll be able to apply your 25% off discount for you, but be prepared to show valid ID in order to redeem it.
