Discounts for State Employees

​​​​Saving money with civil service employee discounts.

As a state worker, you are eligible to receive discounts for a variety of services and products. This page lists some discounts available to all state workers. Whenever you are purchasing a product or service, you should ask if a discount is provided to state workers and what is required by the vendor in order to get the discount. For instance, some vendors require that you show a state ID. If you have questions, contact the vendor directly, as CalHR is not responsible for negotiating the discounts, tracking them, enforcing them or providing information about them. This page is not intended to be a comprehensive listing of the discounts available, as that is constantly changing, but rather to provide workers with an idea of the kinds of discounts available. We hope you can take advantage of discounts offered to state workers whenever possible.
