Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires offer free Checks for Vets

11/8/2018 - Akron, OH - This Veterans Day, Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires locations nationwide are showing thanks and appreciation to those who serve and have served by offering all active and retired military members and first responders free "Checks for Vets," plus up to 10 percent off tires. Effective November 9-11, the "Checks for Vets" promotion includes free tire, brake and battery checks. Military members and police, fire and paramedic first responders who present a valid ID will receive 10 percent off tires (Goodyear, Kelly or Dunlop brands). Appointments can be booked online beginning November 9, during the in-store promotional period, through November 16 to be eligible for the offers. Goodyear Auto Service and Just Tires locations are also extending a check of a different kind, donating up to $10,000 to Folds of Honor, a nonprofit organization that provides educational scholarships to families of military who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the U.S. armed forces. Folds of Honor will receive $5 for every veteran or first responder who redeems the "Checks for Vets" offer during the promotional period. "We are truly grateful to the men and women who serve our country, and appreciative of our veterans," said Fred Thomas, vice president and general manager, Goodyear Retail. "We also want to recognize military families who have sacrificed so much, which is why we are supporting the important mission of Folds of Honor." "Supporting military families through educational opportunities takes a team effort, and it's because of the commitments from volunteers, donors and companies like Goodyear that we're able to help carry out our mission," said Major Dan Rooney, founder and CEO of Folds of Honor. Goodyear Commercial Tire & Service Centers will also celebrate Veterans Day by offering a discount of 10 percent off tires (Goodyear, Kelly or Dunlop brands) to active and retired military members and first responders who present a valid ID from November 9-11. Additional terms and conditions apply to this promotion. Visit GoodyearCTSC.com to learn more.
