The MEA Advantage for Your Wallet

Think of the items and services a household regularly purchases — groceries, clothing, meals, oil changes, entertainment, home and auto insurance — it all adds up over time. Thankfully, MEA members have access to numerous member-only discounts that can save thousands of dollars each year on the items they buy most.

Take, for example, a typical MEA member who pays in the neighborhood of $800 a year in dues to support the collective bargaining, representation and advocacy efforts of their professional association. By just occasionally taking advantage of member-only discounts, that member can turn that $800 investment into thousands of dollars a year in discounts.

So while dues-paying MEA members enjoy numerous advantages for their careers, for their rights and for public education, the member-only discounts alone can easily offset the cost of dues.

Discounts on everyday items

By logging on to the Members Only section of www.mea.org, members can peruse a wide array of deep discounts on things like dining, eye care, home supplies, vacations, health products, golf and much more.

MEA members can also download the “My Deals” mobile app on their smartphones to find discounts in their neighborhoods.

Auto and homeowners’ insurance

In addition, MEA and MEA-Retired members can save hundreds of dollars each year on automobile and homeowners’ insurance through MEA Financial Services, a full-service insurance agency that provides policies exclusively for public education employees.

Because the agency is actually owned by the teachers, education support professionals and higher education employees who comprise MEA, MEA Financial Services’ team of insurance specialists does everything possible to keep costs down and save money for members, while providing them with high-quality coverage.

Through MEA Financial Services, members can also take advantage of group discounts on personal umbrella protection and coverage for rental property, boats, RVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles and more.

To receive a no-obligation quote on auto, home and life insurance from MEA Financial Services, call 1-800-292-1950 or visit www.meafs.com.
