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.

Find information about deals and discounts available to U-M faculty, staff, students and retirees.

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."
