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.

Complimentary Access

Coast Guard Exchange Online Shopping Benefit

All Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees have online access to low-price, tax-free shopping privileges at www.shopCGX.com, the online store of the Coast Guard Exchange System (CGX).

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. Now, these online shopping privileges are extended to all those who serve the DHS mission to protect and defend the American people. DHS federal employees now have access online to tax-free shopping for brand-name merchandise including apparel, shoes, electronics and other consumer products. Previously, online CGX shopping was limited to active duty military service members and retirees, their dependents, reservists, Coast Guard Auxiliarists and select civilian employees.

In addition to providing great products at low prices, CGX offers other tremendous benefits including a generous 14-day price match guarantee, competitor price matching, and tax-free savings.

Once validated through a secure online two-step process, DHS customers can expect to find a wide assortment of brand names at low prices and tax-free savings. Now all DHS employees with a Common Access Card (CAC) or a DHS-issued Personal Identity Verification (PIV) card will be allowed to shop through the CGX website. However, some benefits will continue just for members of the military, such as the purchase of alcohol and tobacco products or military uniform items. Additionally, contractors with a CAC or DHS PIV card may only shop in person at CGX locations and are only able to purchase consumable products (drinks, snacks, etc.) for consumption on base.

All federal employees of DHS are also eligible to shop in person at any of the 64 CGX stores throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, and online at www.shopCGX.com. Find a CGX location near you at https://shopcgx.com/store-locations.html. Please visit https://shopcgx.com/footer-contact-us.html for any questions. Please note that some CGX locations are located on military bases or other sites that may have restricted access. Please contact the individual stores for questions about products, location or hours.
