Each time thereafter you sign in with your e-mail and password. Browse the site and DISCOVER the thousands of ways to save!

  • “Roosevelt Bed and Breakfast – wonderful room and delicious gourmet breakfast for half the price.” – Jan S., Boundary County;
  • “I used the Access benefit when I went to Orlando one summer and was able to save over $400 in my hotel bill alone.” – Erlinda M. What Erlinda doesn’t tell you is that you can also save on theme park costs such as DisneyWorld, etc.

There is a GPS friendly app that accompanies this Access benefit. The Access site will guide you to the app or you can download the “My Deals” app from the app store, register using your home email address and mobile password (1006 – [last 7 digits of] your membership number.)

Summer is Coming – Plan Ahead by Using Your Association Member Benefits

In a month or a little more, IEA members will conclude their student contact for the current school year.  That is not to say that IEA members divorce themselves totally from their professional responsibilities during the summer.  We continue during the summer: advancing our  education expertise with professional development; planning and preparing for a new crop of students in the fall, etc.

However, summer is the opportunity for most IEA members to get some “rest and relaxation” and get mentally prepared for the next school year.  To assist in that ”R & R” be sure to check out how your association member benefits can help you.

If you plan to go someplace special, either in the US or abroad be sure to check out how you can benefit from discounts with the newly launched NEA Vacations.  Here you can find ways to save money on hotels and resorts, air travel, cruises, guided vacations and vacation packages.

Speaking of guided vacations, NEA Member Benefits offers two companies which specialize in those programs and provide discounts for NEA/IEA members: Trafalgar Guided Vacations and G-Adventures.

Even if you are staying close to home, you can save money in your pocket book by using a couple of valuable association discount programs. The NEA program Click and Save can save you up to 30% on all kinds of purchases:  apparel, movie tickets, restaurants and dining, house wares, hotels, gifts, appliances, etc.

Speaking of appliances, be sure to investigate this great benefit called GE Appliances Store. Save on that new refrigerator you have been needing.

Then there is the worldwide discount purchasing program through IEA Member Benefits called the Educator Discount Program. Save wherever you go with the mobile app MyDeals.

Or, if you are staying close to home, enjoy savings in your own back yard.  Did you know? –  Save up to 50% for dining needs, shopping, car services, cell phone service, entertainment, theme parks, hotel stays, cruises, movies, home improvement, MORE,MORE,MORE.  Examples: close to 600 discounts available in north Idaho, over 2000 discounts available in the treasure valley, close to 1000 discounts in east Idaho, over 250 discounts in the Magic Valley. IEA members have saved as much as $600 in one summer using this IEA member benefit.  Take advantage of your IEA/NEA member benefits and enjoy your summer.
