Fumoto would like to thank all veterans and active duty members of the military for their service with a special LIFETIME discount.
How to Apply for Fumoto Military Discounts

As a thank you to the men and women in uniform who defend this country, we are offering lifetime military discounts to both active military personnel and veterans.
Applying for a discount is very easy, too.
How to Apply (Veterans)
  • Take a photo of your driver’s license or non-driver state ID next to your VA card. In lieu of a VA card, you may also submit a photo of your discharge papers.
  • Be sure to block out any personal information you’d like hidden, besides your name.
  • Go to our request page and list the subject as “Military Discount”.
  • At the bottom of the page, in the section labeled attachments, add the photo of your forms of ID.
  • Hit Submit and wait. We will get back to you as soon as possible with a personalized discount code for you to use with any Fumoto purchases from our online store.
How to Apply (Active)
  • Submit a photo of your driver’s license or non-driver state ID.
  • When putting in your email address on the request form, be sure to use your .mil email address, which should match the first and last names on your ID.
Getting Your Discount Code
Once your application is approved, we will email your discount code to you. It is effective immediately and valid for a lifetime of savings.
Note: Be sure to check your email’s spam folder if you do not get a reply from us within 3 business days of your application.

The original email from Fumoto said retired veterans. This has been corrected to include all veterans.

(Seems like a lot of work to prove you're a veteran. Especially since it will most likely be a 1 time purchase. Normally, I just show my VetID and that's good enough.)

Yeah, don't have a problem with the showing Mil ID to do it. But they also want a 2nd photo id (ie drivers license). And you have to wait to get a code from them instead of just ordering and providing info?

The clerk at Lowes told me they started asking for ID to verify you're who you say you are because employees of veterans and friends and families were using other people's military discounts they weren't entitled to. IIRC, the military discount is only for personal use, not businesses.

@chavey2 reported the discount to be 10%. Last year's Fumoto Memorial Day sales had a 15% discount.

Yeah, same thing Lowes told me. I had to go over to their customer service and set up my account with my ID, showing it then But now I'm in the computer so I get it every time now. I did mind the hassle then too, but I spend a lot more at Lowes (and Home Depot) than I will at Fumoto.

Specs (liquor store) also said the same thing - too many people using a military discount that weren't military. 'Course the don't ask me for my id any more, they just say "The usual?" I dunno why.

From May 24 thru May 27, Fumoto is dedicating 22% of retail sales to Mission22 when you enter the code Mission22 during checkout. Mission22 is dedicated to reducing suicides by veterans from its current 22/day to zero. fumotooildrainvalve.com. The Slingshot uses the F107 or the newer F107SX valve and their respective adapters.
