We appreciate all the amazing people who have been on the front lines during this challenging time (a challenging time that keeps continuing in waves). From health care workers to first responders, we wouldn’t have made it through without their sacrifices and hard work. We are truly better as a nation and a world because of the service of our front line workers.
As a thank-you for their tireless dedication, we’ve rounded up deals and freebies (from clothing discounts to free food) exclusively for health care workers, first responders, military personnel and law enforcement. This list contains everything from discounts at popular restaurant chains to savings on clothing and footwear.
How to Get a Front Line Worker Discount
Before we dive into the long list of savings opportunities for front line workers, let’s answer the big question: How do you get a front line worker discount?
It turns out the answer varies depending on what restaurant or retailer is offering the savings. For some, getting the discount is as simple as showing your work ID. Other places ask you to verify your employment status on their website using a platform like ID.me.
Because each business is different, it pays to do a little research before trying to snag some savings. It also never hurts to have your work ID handy.
