100+ Federal Employee Discounts: Government Employee Savings Listed

Federal employee discounts are available to those who are able to show proof of employment with the federal government. Depending on the company offering the discount, you may be able to use your personnel badge or ID card (issued to U.S. federal civilian employees), official military ID, Common Access Card (CAC), U.S. federal government-issued Visa, Mastercard, or American Express card, VA Universal Access Card, Veterans Service Organization Card (VFW, AmVets, DAV, etc.), Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) card, or Native American Tribal Government ID card.

The Verifiable Federal Employee Discounts List

The table below lists the companies that offer a discount to federal employees, military members, veterans, first responders, etc. Discounts are subject to change, and while you typically will just need to provide an ID or show proof of employment to get the discount, some businesses may have other requirements. For example, Avis requires customers to register with Veterans Advantage to get access to its 25% discount.
