Valuable Discounts on Products and Services Available to AFSCME Members

As an AFSCME member, you know you always have an advantage at the bargaining table. But did you also know your AFSCME membership can provide you with a big advantage when you shop? As a dues-paying member of AFSCME, you are entitled to a wide-range of discounts on products and services including cell phone service, mortgages and movie and theme park tickets.

Through these discounts, you may be able to recoup a significant portion of your annual union dues and quite possibly, all of your dues and more!
