All cooped up? Take advantage of employee discounts and perks as summer heats up
Let’s face it, it’s been a long 15 months. From stay-at-home orders to travel restrictions to new PPE guidelines at work, there were plenty of reasons to feel cooped up and anxious during the pandemic.
But with COVID-19 vaccination rates rising, you may be ready to break out of your bubble — while staying safe, keeping your distance and wearing masks when appropriate, of course!
Fortunately, there are a number of businesses across the state and nation that will give you a discount on their products simply because you work for U-M!
Just a few hours south of Ann Arbor, you can spend some time outdoors and have a blast with family or friends with a reduced admission rate to Cedar Point. If you head north instead, the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City will give you its best room rates.
Even closer to home, the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak offers experiences at discounted prices for Michigan Medicine faculty and staff.
Still don’t feel comfortable heading out and about? That’s ok! You can improve your home entertainment with discounts from ABC Warehouse, which offers televisions, stereo systems and more. Or turn your basement or guest room into the perfect home gym with deals from American Home Fitness.
No matter your comfort level or plans for the summer, you’ll be able to find the right deal for you!
