If you’re looking to invest in your professional development while staying at home, then the NIRSA Discounts & Rewards Program is a great place to start—make the most of your individual or institutional NIRSA membership!

  1. The American Council on Exercise (ACE)has made it even easier for NIRSA members to access their discounts. ACE created a unique portal through which NIRSA members can purchase certifications and continuing education programs at discounts exclusive to NIRSA—like 25% off personal training, group fitness instruction, and health coaching certifications as well as 30% off ACE specialist programs. Log into Connect to find the portal URL on the Discounts & Rewards Flyer under ACE’s logo.
  2. Get your official NIRSA basketball before May 30! NIRSA’s contract with Spalding expires at the end of May, so stock up on basketballs while Spalding’s discount for NIRSA members is still applicable.
  3. Red Roof Inn offers 15% off to NIRSA members and has created the Student Support Program to provide even more financial support for secure, safe accommodations for students who may be far away from their hometown in these challenging times. Check out Red Roof National Account Executive Mark Calderone’s reply in this Connect thread to learn more about Red Roof’s efforts to accommodate students who may have been displaced due to campus closures.

Members should call their local Red Cross representative or 1-800-RED-CROSS and identify themselves as from a NIRSA institution to access 20% off all certification courses. Stock up on emergency preparedness equipment and first aid kits for your personal or professional use using the 10% discount on eligible retail products in their online store.
