Discount Purchase Program FAQ

Discount Purchase Program

The program allows you to shop online and purchase certain products or services at discounted prices through the Discount Purchase Program website . Beneplace is a private company located in Austin that administers the purchase program. Program began September 1, 2010.

The discounts are available to all State of Texas and higher education institutions active full-time and part-time employees, retirees, and their families (except for employees and retirees from the University of Texas or Texas A&M University Systems).

Note: Some discounts will only be available to active employees (e.g. Verizon).

Start on the  Discount Purchase Program website  to view available discounts. Search by products and follow the "How to participate" section of the offer.

If you don't have internet access, you may contact Beneplace customer service at (512) 346-3300 (TTY: (800) 683-2886).

The discount amount varies by offer. Each offer will list the discount and instructions for receiving it.

Some of the vendors who offer discounts require a discount code. Discount codes are unique to each offer. Carefully review the "How to participate" section of the offer for details.

Most discounts are only available online; but, you can get some discounts in person.
For example:
Toyota has program information posted online, but to complete the transaction you must go in person to a participating dealership.
You will need to work directly with the merchant to resolve any problems with your orders.

ERS does not endorse or sponsor any service or service provider. Beneplace can assist with general information about the offer and any escalated customer service inquires. 

If you have any questions, provides a customer service line at (800) 683-2886.
