Who’s got the best employee discounts? Luckily, many stores do! However, it seems employee discount programs are a bit of a mixed bag. Some industries really spoil their employees (oh heyyy hospitality industry!). And just based on their employee discounts, some industries act like you’re lucky to just have a job (ahem … grocery stores).

I’ve highlighted a ton of the best employee discount programs around and marked them with this key:

🤩 = Awesome discounts, like a 40% discount or more

🙁 = Just OK discounts, like 30% – 35% off or lower

Not that employee discounts (or any kind of discounts, for that matter) are ever “bad.” But some companies really level it up. Be sure to look into all the other discounts you might be eligible for, like senior discounts, student discounts, teacher discounts, and healthcare worker discounts.

Employee Discount Programs for Tech

1. 🙁 Amazon: Amazon Fulfillment — aka warehouse — employees get a 10% discount on Amazon products, up to $100 annually. So you’ll get 10% off the first $1,000 you spend as an employee.

2. 🤩 Apple: Apple offers employees a 25% discount in all four of their product categories every year. Categories include iPhone, iPad, Mac computer, and Apple Watch. Meaning, you can get a new item from each category at 25% off every year. Retail associates also get an additional 10% off anything in the store except gift cards.

3. 🤩 AT&T: The AT&T employee discount includes 50% off wireless products and services, including wireless internet.

4. 🤩 Best Buy: Best Buy’s employee discount isn’t very clear on their site; they just offer an “employee discount.” According to Glassdoor, though, they offer “cost + 5%” as a discount price for employees. This means if an item costs Best Buy $50, you’ll pay $52.50. They may charge $95 in the store for the same item, but you’ll only pay a portion higher than their cost. So this discount is actually pretty legit. It doesn’t apply to Apple products, gaming consoles, or high-ticket items, though. But we can teach you how to save money at Best Buy.
