Employee Discount Programs

As a CBP employee or family member, you can access a variety of employee discounts programs and resources. 

Microsoft Workplace Discount Program

The Microsoft Workplace Discount Program replaced the Home Use Program frequently used by federal employees. CBP employees are eligible to save on Microsoft 365 Family and Personal subscriptions. The process involves entering a work email address to receive a personalized link that allows you to shop Microsoft products and subscriptions at a discount. Microsoft Workplace Discount Program FAQs provides detailed information on what is included, how to purchase software, and how to download and manage subscriptions.  

LifeCare and LifeMart

CBP works with LifeCare to provide our employees and their family members with valuable services such as worklife webinars, backup care, wellness and resiliency resources and LifeMart discounts. You can find deals on top brands, services and destinations from national and local vendors.  

Below are just a few of the discount areas available. LifeMart is continually adding new deals and vendors.

  • Childcare
  • Education
  • Electronics
  • Financial Services
  • Food and Grocery (including coupons)
  • Home and Auto

Employees and their family members can use the complimentary access button below to access LifeCare resources and view LifeMart discounts without registering for a membership account. Complimentary access may not provide access to all features and services. Employees can use their government email address to register for a membership account or personalized access for family members. 

Complimentary Access

Coast Guard Exchange Online Shopping Benefit

All Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees have access to low-price, tax-free shopping privileges at www.shopCGX.com, the online store of the Coast Guard Exchange System (CGX), or in person at any of the 64 CGX locations. CGX offers brand-name merchandise including apparel, shoes, electronics and other consumer products. Other benefits include a generous 14-day price-match guarantee and competitor price matching.

CGX is the only non-appropriated military resale activity within DHS. It has a 70-year history of providing goods and services at a savings to military customers, their families and Coast Guard civil service employees and civil service retirees. Some benefits, such as the purchase of alcohol and tobacco products or military uniform items, will continue just for military members.

To shop online, a secure online two-step process is required to validate your identification using a Common Access Card (CAC) or a DHS-issued Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card. Contractors with a CAC or DHS PIV card may only shop in person and are only able to purchase consumable products (drinks, snacks, etc.) for consumption on base.
