100 Frugal Tips in 100 Days: Tip # 34

Tip # 34 Look into benefits and discounts at work

Some companies are better than others at making sure their employees are aware of all of the benefits they offer. Aside from the obvious health insurance, vacation, retirement, etc, there are often many other discounts that are available through your work. All you have to do is ask your HR representative.

Here are a few of the benefits I am able to take advantage of through my employer:

  • $10 off a Sam's Club membership
  • 22% discount on Verizon Wireless
  • Financial Finesse (Basically free meetings and advice from financial planners)
  • Commute Smart (You can earn $120 just for carpooling and logging your commutes. If you continue to participate and log a certain number of "clean air" commutes each quarter, you get an gift card for free gas!)
  • Virgin Health Miles (Depending on how active you are, you can earn up to $500 cash in one year!)

Other common employer benefits include discounts on gym memberships and public transportation.
