Firefighters, police officers, EMTs and other first responders put their lives on the line every day to protect those they care about. As a way of saying thank you for their dedication, many businesses offer discounts or deals to these frontline workers as an expression of appreciation.
Tervis is one of those stores that offers discounts to first responders, healthcare service workers or medical professionals. It’s an excellent way to show your gratitude while saving money at the same time.
First, create an account on Tervis and successfully pass their verification process. Afterwards, they’ll send you the first responder discount code via email.
Discount terms and conditions vary, but in general require you to present a government-issued ID when shopping in-store or using the online portal to confirm your status. You may also have to provide proof of employment or enrollment in a particular program in order to take advantage of these discounts.
Other retailers that offer discounts to frontline workers include Purple, Tide Cleaners, Tuft & Needle and more. In most cases the discount applies to your entire order if qualified; however in some cases the offer may only cover one item.
Purple offers a 10% discount on all apparel for medical professionals and first responders when you verify your status via SheerID. This includes audiologists, EMTs, feldshers, physicians, nurses, psychotherapists and more – just to name a few!
GovX, an online resource for discounts, provides free membership to current and retired military personnel as well as first responders. As a member, you’ll have access to discounts on many popular brands and products as well as travel, hotels, cars and theme parks.
