    Office Depot Update

    Office Depot is a great benefit offered to USPS members that

    can be used on many products. It has proven to be our most

    popular and yet many members have not heard about it!

    Office Depot has also donated a few gift cards that are raffled

    and given away as door prizes at our national meetings.

    Below are the highlights and news worthy items.

    - The biggest savings is though printing (not self-serve).

    - They offer discounts on many other items, but not the

    same item all the time; and not everything is discounted.

    - In order to take advantage of the deal, a squadron or district can order a pack of cards from headquarters to

    distribute to squadron members or hand out at district conferences. The general public should not be given a card.

    A card can also be printed directly from the Member Benefits - Office Depot web site.

    - Keep this card in your wallet at all times and use on every purchase, whether planning on paying for it yourself

    or if asking for reimbursement. It will save you or your squadron money!

    - Use the card on all Office Depot purchases online or in the store regardless if discounted that week or not. USPS

    will get a small percentage back for that purchase.

    - Every week or two, the discounted items list changes. The list can be found on the Member Benefits - Office Depot


    - You must present the Office Depot discount card at time of purchase.

    - Your USPS membership card will not work at any store or online for purchases. The associates have no idea who

    USPS is and won't be able to help you, if you don't have the Office Depot card.

    - Office Depot and Office Max merged. At this time, Office Max will not accept the Office Depot discount card as the

    computer systems have not been merged. If Office Depot is not convenient, try purchasing online at the USPS

    Member Benefit - Office Depot website. It will be delivered the next day.

    - Purchases made do not need to be for USPS business only. The discount card can be used for personal or business

    use as well as other organizations, but by a USPS member.

    - Discount is given at time of purchase.

    Sea Tow and USPS signed

    a Memorandum of Un-

    derstanding at the annual

    meeting 2014.

    Sea Tow has provided

    discounted information cards included for any boating

    course student. You can order free cards from USPS

    headquarters by using the order number below, and

    you can find more details about their offering on the

    Member Benefits web site.

    Here is a general explanation of the Sea Tow and USPS


    All three organizations, Sea Tow, Sea Tow Foundation

    and the USPS, will work closely together to provide

    boating safety resources and education to the public,

    while USPS members and boaters who take a USPS

    Boating Safety Course will benefit from valuable new

    discounts on Sea Tow memberships, enhancing their

    peace of mind of the water.

    All USPS members will receive a promotional code for

    a $10 discount off their Sea Tow Membership, whether

    they are purchasing a new membership or renewing

    their membership. This brings the cost of a Sea Tow

    Gold Card Membership down to $159 per year for

    USPS members, while offering them the same valuable

    services and benefits enjoyed by all other Sea Tow

    members.- When joining or renewing

    ( or 1-800-4 SEATOW (800-473-2869)

    All boaters who complete a USPS Boaters Safety

    Course will receive a coupon code (or can order the

    Trial Membership Cards from the headquarters to

    distribute at courses) for a free 60-day Sea Tow Trial

    Membership (use the code PSC), after which they will

    have the option to upgrade to a full membership

    technically getting 14 months for the price of 12 (use

    the code PSE)!
