How can my company be listed on UPMC Perks?
Vendors requesting inclusion in the UPMC Perks program must submit the UPMC Perks Vendor Application Form. All discount offers must include an authorized vendor contact name and phone number.

Who is eligible for the discount?
Discounts must be open to employees of all UPMC institutions and affiliates.

UPMC expects that Perks discount offers are of value to UPMC staff, physicians, and volunteers.
At minimum, the value of the discount must be:
- 10 percent for annual, ongoing offers
- 20 percent for specific, time-sensitive offers
How long does my company need to provide the discount?
Discount offers are expected to run through the calendar year (12 months), except for specific, time-sensitive offers.
UPMC will contact vendors 60 days before the expiration of the current agreement regarding renewal.
How does UPMC promote the discount offer?
We promote UPMC Perks discount offers on our intranet and in our internal employee newsletter, as space permits.
I'm a UPMC employee, but also have my own business. May I participate in UPMC Perks as a vendor?
No. UPMC employees are not permitted to participate in UPMC Perks as vendors.
Can vendors promote their offers within UPMC facilities?
