Have Yourself Some Merry Savings

Between the holiday parties, confirming travel plans, and purchasing gifts for friends and family, the holiday season knows how to zap your wallet—and your time and energy, too! But that’s why ATPE provides members superior services and discounts, because we know public school employees are short on time and money. Check out these holiday-saving tips.

  • Avoid the crowded mall parking lots and long checkout lines by shopping at Azigo, an exclusive, online shopping experience. Azigo has all the stores you’d find at a physical mall, such as Kohl’s, Target, Nordstrom, Zappos, Best Buy, and Sephora, which means you can shop for items like clothes and electronics at a discount—from your home—and get some money back in your pocket. 
  • Spreading holiday cheer by traveling? ATPE members can save on car rentals through Alamo®, Avis®, Budget, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and National Car Rental. If you use your own car, remember that members get a first-year discount on roadside assistance from AAA, and our partnership with Liberty Mutual means an auto insurance plan that helps save you hundreds. 
  • If your holiday travels include an overnight stay, ATPE members can find great deals on a wide variety of hotels and lodging. If you need a fun reason to get out of the house, take advantage of the discounts at theme parks, zoos, and vacation and cruise packages your membership provides you. 
  • A lot of us like to put our holiday purchases on our credit cards, so why not use the ATPE Visa Signature® credit card—the only card that donates money back to ATPE programs with every purchase? You can earn 5,000 bonus reward points after your first purchase, on top of the fact that you get one point for every net dollar spent and can redeem those points for cash back, gift cards, and more.
