You Work Here? Here’s Your Discount

060910Feature2_BennifitsThe economy hurts. Discounts can help. And there are a lot of them, around campus, if you know to say that you’re a faculty or staff member and show your Spartan ID.

The campus’ Benefits Committee is working to help secure discounts to stores and services off-campus. And they are looking for volunteers in that effort. Meanwhile, that committee and Human Resource Services want faculty and staff to know there are lots of benefits and discounts throughout campus.

It’s called Spartan Savings.

Some examples:

  • A 20 percent discount on most merchandise sold at the UNCG Bookstore, excluding textbooks, magazines/newspapers and food/drink items.
  • Faculty/staff on-campus athletics pass.
  • Men’s basketball season pass – offering 45 percent off what single games would cost.
  • Full tuition and fees waiver for two courses per academic year – Details are here.
  • Spartan Express Flex Plan provides a $1/meal discount on all meals in The Spartan Restaurant in the Dining Center, as well as no sales tax.
  • A 20 percent discount this summer to the All-Arts, Sciences and Technology summer camp for youths ages 7 to 15. (In past years, it was 10 percent.)
  • Opportunities for discounts for music, dance and theatre performances. See site for details and links.
  • A 50 percent discount to counseling sessions at UNCG Psycholology Clinic and the UNCG Vacc Counseling and Consulting Clinic.
  • Free blood pressure checks at Student Health Services.
  • Free rides on Greensboro city buses and on HEAT buses around campus.
