Mcard Deals and Discounts Available for Faculty and Staff
The Mcard is the University of Michigan's single-card program that combines the features of photo identification, 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.
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."
