Due to the nature of their work, travel nurses are always looking for the best travel discounts. This can include deals on hotels, car rentals, and flights. Most travel nurses are unaware of some additional deals and discounts up for grabs. Here are some of the best deals for travel nurses in 2022.
Before diving into some of the discounts, make sure to set a reminder for great deals during Nurses’ Week each year. Nurses’ Week is from May 6th to May 12th this year.
Most travel nurses receive discounts from scrub and nurse supply stores. Besides scrub stores, there are other apparel stores that offer discounts. Adidas offers 30% off online or in stores, and their factory outlet stores offer 20% off. PUMA and Under Armor give a 20% discount to nurses.
Need to buy a new phone, computer, or electronic device? Well, these select companies provide some great deals for travel nurses. Samsung offers up to 30% off through its first responders program. HP provides up to 40% off at their online store. Looking for a discount on your monthly cell phone plan? Verizon Wireless can offer up to $25 off per month on select plans or unlimited plans from $30 per line per month.
Delivery Meal Kits
Some travel nurses use delivery meal kits while they are on assignment as an alternative to eating at restaurants. If your lodging has a kitchen with a stove, oven, and basic kitchen utensils, delivery meal kits are a great way to eat healthy and save money. Blue Apron offers $110 off your first four boxes with free shipping on the first box. Hello Fresh provides 50% off your first box plus free shipping. If you are a nurse and a new member, they give 10% off all other boxes over the next year.
Whether it be hotels, car rentals, or flights, travel nurses can always use a deal for travel. Car rental companies like Hertz, Enterprise, and Budget all offer up to 25% off for nurses. If booking a hotel for your assignment, consider an Extended Stay, since they offer reduced rates if you are staying for a month or longer. If you are interested in a pricier hotel, call the hotel to see if they provide special deals to travel nurses. Are you more interested in a getaway vacation between assignments? Caesars Hotels give up to 30% off and select Miami Beach Hotels give up to 60% off hotel stays.
Before browsing the internet for deals, determine if your travel nursing agency offers discounts. Sometimes travel nursing agencies offer their travel nurses a discount website link. Make sure to ask when you sign your contract and before booking any travel.
