Discounts for Essential Workers During COVID-19

Back to Blog

Essential workers are busy keeping our country safe and running during this global pandemic. Many businesses are looking to do their part in supporting our people on the front lines. Here is a list of some deals and discounts we found for essential workers. If you are a business offering help to essential workers or have any other promos you’re aware of, please reach out! 

While some businesses like this one are equipped to tweak their day-to-day process and provide front-line workers with the masks and PPE that they really need, other businesses are offering promotions, deals, and discounts for essential workers where they can. The following are just a handful of many helping during the pandemic by staying at home and sending support from afar. 

Each business may be defining their deal and support slightly differently, but we thought we’d give a quick definition of what’s been identified as an essential worker. Essential workers include professions such as healthcare workers, scientists, security personnel, food and agriculture workers, energy and utilities, certain manufacturers, bank employees, educators, news media, building cleaners and janitors, trash collectors, food bank workers, and shipping services.

Healthcare workers can email together@allbirds.com to receive a free pair of the company’s best-selling Wool Runners. (While supplies last.) Or buy shoes at a donation discounted price. 


3 Months Free Service. (NOT LIVE)
