Discounts for nurses

Posted

Has 10 years experience.

So I was doing some Christmas shopping for my wife the other day at New York and Company when I noticed a slip of paper by the register that said, "service occupation discount codes" and it listed Police, Fire, EMT, Teacher and Nurse. I asked the clerk, "I'm a nurse, do I get some kind of discount?" She had me show her proof (I happened to have my license in my wallet) and I got 15% off, ON TOP OF THE SALE PRICE!

I got to thinking, this wasn't even advertised, I happened to see this piece of paper that was codes for the employee to use on the register, I wonder if there are other places out there like this. Does anyone know??

Great! i dont make retail workers go out of their way for me since thats what im doing in the time being.. but i will mention this.

Life uniform will sometimes give a 10% discount if you are a nursing student. and when i was a hospital volunteer they gave me an additional 10% off too.

The local Jack in the Box offers discounts for hospital employees.

I cant believe it, I shop there all the time and I never knew. I think Ann Taylor Loft does something like this for teachers.

The biggest one of these discounts is your cell phone company. Just about all the carriers have discounts for public service workers. I got a 15% TMobile discount just by showing my hospital ID. :yeah:

They don't like to advertise these things, but you usually get it with no questions asked when you inquire about it.

My employer group has a 25% discount with ATT. Also we get a discount at the optical center on campus, Apple store on computers, they have a website where staff can download Free or nominal cost software (free anti-virus and free microsoft office). There are deals to be had, just do a little name dropping. I am NEVER ashamed to get a discount.

Happy Holidays to everyone.

The Swan and Dolphin hotels (Westin) on WDW property in Orlando offer discounts to nurses :D They offer the same discount to a couple of other occupations as well including teachers.

Sweeeeeet!!!

I don't know of too many - Caldwell College offers a 25% discount on tuition for firefighters and police (only know cause i took classes there!)

This is not an advertisement for T-Mobile, but I used to be a sales leader for them. T-Mobile offers a lot of discounts depending on where you work, where you went to school, who you have insurance through... It is usually between 10% to 15%. Sometimes, they will offer waived activation fees etc. as well. They were trying to make a big push of that in store for a little while.

For NY & Company, you can use the offer code 7472 online to get the nurse discount!

I saw an advertisement on facebook, and came here to share this very thing! Good thing I did a search first:lol2:

Wow, good things to know! I generally love the clothes at NY&C and already have T-Mobile service. Can't wait to go clothes shopping now!

After spending nearly an hour on the phone with T-Mobile, they do *not* offer a discount for nurses, but rather through specific employers or a few state nursing associations (New Mexico is the only one I can remember right now).

Isn't it great!? They give you 15% off in the store if you show them your nursing license. I had my doubts but it is true. I did it myself and got a bunch of sweaters at the after christmas sale for like $12 each! A good sale always makes my day. :clown:

When my dentist found out I graduated from nursing school, he gave me a 15% discount. He said it is a "professional courtesy" discount he gives to his patients who are nurses or physicians.

Most national cell phone companies offer discounts based on where you work. Working for my current employer entitles me to discounts with Sprint, AT&T and T Mobile.

Yes! They do this.

Another place that gives good discounts for nurses is www.NursePoints.com

They actually have a coupon for New York & Co that will get you 20% off.
