Discounts and Savings Available through Vendors to UT Employees

UT has partnerships with many organizations that offer discounts and savings to our employees.

When you are making travel plans, keep in mind that there are discounts available through UT Travel with airlines, car rental companies, and hotels.

The UT System HR website is the best source of discount information statewide. Among the vendors are major wireless phone providers, Staples, and even Tennessee State Parks.

Other businesses may offer UT or state employee discounts that do not appear on the website. Be sure to ask vendors not listed on the website if they offer a discount to UT faculty and staff.

Newly added to UT’s contracted vendors is Under Canvas, which offers luxury camping excursions. They offer a government rate for all safari tents from September 20 to November 20, 2018, excluding Saturdays. To make reservations, call 888-496-1148 and mention UT. Employees are required to show their VolCard at check-in.
