Discount Opportunities

The Mcard is the University of Michigan's single-card program that combines the features of photo identication, library borrowing card, building access, meal plans, and ATM/debit card access all on one card. Many businesses and organizations offer discounts when you show your Mcard at the time of payment or at time of offer.

Free Child Car Seat Safety Class

U-M offers a free car seat class to the public. Over 80% of car seats are
used incorrectly, and the average number of misuses per seat is three. This
class is offered at Mott Children's Hospital. You show up with your car seat, and they teach
you a little about basic car seat safety before helping you (and teaching
you) how to install and use your seat safely.

provides a broad range of high-quality, reasonably priced home care services to the community, including a 10% discount for U-M faculty and staff off the monthly fee for Lifeline service. The Lifeline benefit program extends to all family members across the United States.



A staff member's tip for getting great values:

"Take time to cruise around this site. There's a lot of good and useful information here. After reading the list of discounted products and services listed, it might encourage you to do what I do when I make purchases or eat at restaurants — Ask the merchant: 'Do you give a UM discount?' Sometimes the answer is 'yes' even though the vendor may not be listed."
