Since its start in 1988, the Perks Group program has attracted millions of members around the nation who enjoy regular deals across all 50 states. Partnering with universities like Binghamton and the University of North Carolina, Perks Group delivers savings on everyday items, travel expenses, restaurants and more to staff. 


Perks Group is recognized as an industry leader in affinity programs because of its massive membership, its broad offerings, and the intuitive design of the PerksConnect user platform. Today, Perks discounts are redeemable at over 200 thousand business locations throughout the U.S. Members can easily access deals from the smartphone app to provide during checkout and earn real cash back on a number of purchases. 


The PerksConnect smartphone app and online hub also allow members to access deals by browsing a list of nearby savings or by searching the city, state, or zip code for out-of-town discounts. All members need to present to a cashier at the time of purchase is a coupon or online code through the app. Otherwise, they can make online purchases through a provided Perks Group link, download coupons for on-the-go shopping, or else use a value code through an 800 number service.


By becoming a Perks partner, merchants are able to effectively promote their business inside the walls of a major corporation/organization, which would otherwise be inaccessible to them. At the same time, new merchants mean more deals and a greater variety of savings for members from top retail brands. 


Working with many colleges and universities throughout the U.S., Perks Group can provide students, faculty, and alumni exclusive savings on necessities and luxury items. This is especially beneficial to those who are active on campus as many of their daily purchases such as gas and food are discounted through PerksConnect.


Binghamton University

Perks Group has partnered with Binghamton University to offer employees their national savings program from a variety of vendors, merchants, and providers. Employees simply access their custom-designed PerksConnect hub to earn up to 75% off brand names and products at popular retailers.


Additionally, Binghamton University Employees are free to invite family and friends to join in on the savings and gain access to private shopping events and exclusive deals. 


The University of North Carolina

UNC and Perks Group have also partnered to deliver university employees regular discounts. In addition to frequently updated local and national deals, employees can save on theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, Six Flags, Sea World, Legoland, and many others. Also, all members can save on gift cards to top brands and major retailers and manufacturers. 


Perks has provided a national savings program that lets members shop without gimmicks, point systems, and nothing to redeem except real discounts. In this way, Universities give employees the ability to stretch their earnings even further.
