As an officer of the law, you didn’t choose your career because of the paycheck. You decided to join law enforcement because you wanted to help people, despite the paycheck. The communities that you serve want to honor your service and the best way they know how is to give you law enforcement discounts, deals and rewards nationwide. Offering discounts are the easiest way for businesses and companies to show you their thanks.
When it comes to discounts for police officers and first responders, most stores and community businesses only need proper ID showing your affiliation with the police force. That ID will provide you with a significant number of savings throughout the United States.
These discounts are available at retail stores, automotive businesses, car rental places, as well as hotels and resorts. You can find deals on eyewear, jewelry, photography, sports, and even wedding venues. There are also many programs that can help you save money when purchasing or selling a home. Keep reading for a complete list of law enforcement deals and discounts.
Retail stores offer discounts from 5% to 25% discounts with valid ID, although many times people get away with cheap fake IDs as well. Some stores have a verification process required through ID.me or SheerID. Once you have an account and they have verified your ID, you can use that account as proof of ID instore and online.
For possible discounts at Columbia Sportswear, apply online to see if you qualify through the Columbia Professional Purchase Program. Receive a 5 percent discount at Joe Bob Outfitters by using the promo code THANKYOU.
Automotive and Car Rentals
If you are looking for car parts or accessories, or are in the market for a new car, you can find law enforcement discounts at CARid, Ford, Ameraguard Truck Accessories, Subimods, and Harley-Davidson with valid ID. If you need a rental car for whatever reason, you can find exclusive deals at Alamo, Budget Truck Rental, and Dollar Car, as well as Hertz.
Hotels and Resorts
If you are interested in sports teams in your area, you may be able to receive discounts on Police and Fire Nights. A large number of NBA teams will give discounts on select games. You only need to visit GOVX Tickets and search for your team to find out which nights are available for your law enforcement discount. You can also receive exclusive deals on NBA merchandise at the NBA Store.
Outside of the NBA, you can find sports discounts at Auto Club Speedway, the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Dunamis Rods, and Fanatics, as well as Ironmanstore.com, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Moosejaw, and Nascar.com. Other deals and discounts include but are not limited to Newton Running, the NHL Shop, the NFL Shop, and the Pocono Raceway.
