Well, now you can! The wonderful crew working over at TroopSwap has developed the technology that allows us to receive our military discount from the comfort of our own homes. Enter: Troop ID.
Troop ID is a single sign-on website (that's right, you log in to just one site) that authenticates your military credentials, and gives you access to ongoing discounts offered by their partners. Their current featured partner is Under Armour, only one of many nationally recognized brands to come.
Sounds too good to be true? Worried your personal information will be at risk? Let me put you at ease... Troop ID was created by two former Army Rangers who know all about the necessary precautions to take when sharing your information. Coming from someone who is hesitant to hand over her military ID at the doctor's office for insurance purposes, this is as good as it gets. By validating your military status with Troop ID, you don't have to share that information with anyone else, and it is never given to their partners. What this also means is that military-wanna-bes committing fraud will not be able to take advantage of the benefits we have earned.
Are you eligible? If you fall under any of the following categories, the answer is yes:
- Active Duty Service Members
- Spouses and Dependents of AD & Vets
It gets better... Troop ID isn't limited to just shopping discounts. They will also be able to offer employment and educational opportunities, VA benefits, and financial resources.
Now that you've heard all about Troop ID, head on over and sign up to start taking advantage of these offers!
