Overview

The State of Missouri Employee Discount website exists to identify active and retired Missouri state employees discounts on products and services from applicable vendors in order to express appreciation for their valued service to Missouri citizens. All discounted products and services identified on this website are provided at no cost to state employees or the State of Missouri. See more at (link to website). 

Website Details

In its discretion, the State of Missouri will post information about discounts for state employees from approved vendors on an online bulletin board.  All vendors who wish to have their discounted products or services listed on the website must complete the Vendor Application Form.

The vendor’s offer must be of added value or an actual discount.  Posted discount offers are limited to attractions, recreational facilities, products, services, as well as entertainment and sporting events. 

Offers that compete or conflict with existing services or programs already provided to employees through the State of Missouri will not be accepted.

The vendor will be notified via electronic mail whether the discount offer is approved.  If approved, the vendor must provide a one-page electronic document (PDF) that provides all pertinent discount information and includes the following:

  • Company name and address or locations
  • Any state employment verification requirements needed to receive the discount (check stub, identification badge)
  • Applicable pricing or examples
  • Contact and customer service information
  • Passwords, activation codes or  account numbers needed to obtain or request the discount; and,
  • Any limitations or restrictions that apply to the offer.

Vendors’ requirements for active or retired state employees to receive discounts may vary and can include coupons, flyers, use of the posted PDF and/or presentation of a State of Missouri identification badge or most recent check stub.

Vendors must inform the State of Missouri of any changes that may affect the discount.  A vendor may remove its discount by submitting a written request to discounts@oa.mo.gov.

Employees and retirees should contact the individual vendor should they have questions about discounts, including questions regarding proof of employment requirements or eligibility limitations.

All posted offers will be available to all active state employees.

Some discounts may not always be available to both active and retired state employees.
