Veterans Return the Favor Program

Welcome to our Veterans Discount Program called Return the Favor!

In 2010, the Cayuga County Clerk’s Office started a Veterans Discount Program called Return the Favor.  To date, we have over 150 local businesses that offer discounts to Veterans. 

It’s simple to participate: 

VETERANS: We just need the Veteran to file their DD214 (Military Discharge Papers) in our office, and then they are eligible for all of our discounts! We’ve been visited by hundreds of Veterans in our office, and we hope to be visited by many more.

LOCAL BUSINESSES:  Complete the application and email or fax the application to the County Clerk’s Office. Email Sue at We will send you a confirmation and a decal for your place of business, and we will add you to our Merchant Participation List. 

The County Clerk is proud to partner with the Auburn Downtown Business District, the County Veterans Office, and the Cayuga County Chamber of Commerce. We’d also like to thank the local businesses who offer these discounts to our Veterans. This program is successful because all of us work together to make this happen. It’s a win-win program-- Veterans support our local businesses, and local businesses give a discount to the Veterans!

Our Return the Favor Merchant Participation List is constantly changing. You can get a copy by viewing Participating Merchants, or feel free to come into the office to get an updated list whenever you need one. 

If you have questions about the program, please give us a call at (315) 253-1271. Thank you once again to our Veterans and the sacrifices they made to protect our great country!
