Most places will ask to see your employee ID card to get free offers in person, so be sure to have it handy. You may also need to be a loyalty program member or download an app to access certain offers. When redeeming online offers, many companies use the verification services ID.me or SheerID to validate credentials. These sites will ask you to upload your nursing license and/or proof of employment to validate your status and claim your nurse discounts.
Remember to check out local shops, too. Many neighborhood restaurants and stores offer nurses discounts or freebies locally, which may not be widely publicized. Follow your favorites on social media to be in the know.
