Hope all is well. I've noticed that the First Responder / Law Enforcement discount has recently changed. I'm in the DC area, and it seems that each of the three stores is now applying that discount, if they do at all, differently. Is there an official statement from big MC on how the discount is currently applied and who is eligible? I saw, yesterday, that it now says 'Law Enforcement' discount within the POS system at the cashier stations. Does this apply to all levels of Law Enforcement? Federal, local, etc? Any help would be appreciate, thanks!
Our First Responder discount was a temporary policy that we held for the last two years to support those working closest to the pandemic. As with other major retailers, we are resuming a sense of normalcy and we hope to find new ways of supporting our local communities.
The Law Enforcement discount is a continuation of a policy Micro Center has had for some time prior to the first responder discount.
You would need to present official law enforcement credentials, badge or be in uniform at checkout to be eligible. This is available at all Micro Center store locations.
So I'm just wanting to confirm that when I go back to my local MC and present my department identification for the law enforcement agency that I work for, and in my issued uniform, I won't essentially be harassed by a blue jacket at the registers and be told that I need to be in uniform?
HEY MICROCENTER !!
HOW ABOUT A DISCOUNT FOR VETERANS ? I PUT MY LIFE ON THE LINE FOR U.S.A
Greetings, first of all, thank you for your feedback on this policy. I am sorry for any inconveniences regarding to the changes made earlier this year in regards to this. I will be glad to share your thoughts and concerns with our corporate office to see what may be done in regards to this policy change. You also may stop in and speak with store management at your local Micro Center to see what they may be able to provide for this as well.
It's still a thing, but still only for Law Enforcement. I was in my local store the other day and got a discount.
I would like to thank the staff at Microcenter for offering the First Responder / Firefighter discount in the first place. Yes, I'm sad to see it be terminated but it was very kind of all the Microcenter people that offered and promoted this generous gift. I hope that there might be a time in the future that you decide to restore this opportunity. I know that I made many new customers for Microcenter, both Firefighters and non Firefighters because of the discount. I was happy to tell people that there was a local alternative to Amazon and Bestbuy. A real computer store that had employees that actually knew what they were talking about. I know quite a few people that are now pretty regular customers of Microcenter. Just this morning, a friend needed a 15 foot VGA cable and in less than two minutes, I showed him the Microcenter web site,how to locate the part, what isle and what the price would be. He was super happy to be able to purchase his item on a Sunday so that he could test it out before Monday and have everything working. Thanks Microcenter, we do appreciate the kindness that you extend to your customers.
