Several businesses are extending special offers to furloughed government workers.

Among the offers are delayed payments for Nissan car owners and free meals from a local food truck.

Hudiburg Nissan in Oklahoma City said its financial services division, Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp., will offer a payment extension up to 90 days for federal employees who are indefinitely furloughed. Qualifying lease and retail customers can delay payments for up to three months without additional fees.

Sam's Club on Friday announced it will allow military personnel, retirees and their families free passes to shop the members-only clubs while military base commissaries are shuttered. A temporary pass to shop will be given to those who show proof of military ID or past military service at the member service counter.

Also, La Gumbo Ya Ya, an Oklahoma City food truck serving Cajun and Puerto Rican meals, has offered furloughed workers a free meal when they show their furlough letter. The offer was posted to the company's Twitter account last week. To find scheduled locations for La Gumbo Ya Ya, visit www.lagumboyaya.com.
