EUGENE, Ore. — A Eugene-based company is making it easier for military families to get special deals for Memorial Day weekend.
Usually to get a student or military discount, one has to show a form of physical identification to retailers. But the company SheerID verifies identification instantly during checkout when shopping online.
SheerID teamed up with about 50 companies so far from Costco to PGA Tours to offer its service. To get a special military discount or offer, all you have to do is enter your information. SheerID has access to federal databases with military records.
“The individual raises their hand and says check my military service and we come back with an instant answer that says yes, this person is an active duty, yes this person is the spouse of someone in the military or yes this person is a veteran,” said CEO Jake Weatherly.
It’s free for the customer and you don’t have to sign up for anything. The retailer pays to have SheerID on its site.
Also, six new companies jumped on board to add this service– just in time for the memorial day weekend.
SheerID doesn’t just service military customers but discounts for students, teachers, new or loyal customers and more.
