Employee Perks

Indiana University Bloomington Herman B Wells plaza

Deals and Discounts for IU Employees

A number of local businesses and franchises offer discounts and special deals ("perks") to IU faculty and staff. The intent of these offers is to encourage goodwill within the community between IU faculty, staff members, and local businesses; IU faculty and staff will have incentive to patronize local businesses, and local businesses will benefit from increased business with IU faculty and staff. These perks are special offers and not a part of the wages, bonuses, and benefits packages provided by Indiana University.

If you know of other perks, or if you wish to include a perk from your local business or franchise (or your non-local or online business with an existing vendor/business relationship with Indiana University), please contact the Bloomington Professional Council (BPC). Requests for inclusion on this site are approved at the sole discretion of the BPC, in accordance with the intentions noted above.

DISCLAIMER: By listing businesses and their offers below, Indiana University and the BPC are not endorsing these businesses or the goods/services offered. We have been in contact with these businesses, or they have contacted us, regarding partnering in our perks program. The listings below are provided by the respective businesses; Indiana University and the BPC are not responsible for whether the information is accurate or current. Be a wise consumer and research services and discounts appropriately.
