Blue365: Local and National Discounts for Members
Release Date: September 24, 2012
As we prepare to retire our member discount program Blue ExtrasSM at the end of the year, we are beginning to promote Blue365®, which is a more robust discount program already offered by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to all of its members nationwide.
We hope interested members will find value in the local and national discounts available to them via Blue365, which offers a wide array of health and wellness products and services, family activities, financial services, and healthy travel. Sourced from national consumer brands and local businesses, the constantly changing selection of health and wellness discounts will help our members’ lead healthier lives 365 days a year.
Blue365 offers deals on many of the services previously discounted via Blue Extras, including eyeglasses and contact lenses, hearing aids, and laser eye surgery. Members can sign up for weekly emails with featured deals that will be spotlighted on the Blue365 website at www.blue365deals.com/BCBSNC, where they can learn more about this free program and access other discounts.
- Gym memberships
- Eyeglasses and other vision care
- Hearing aids
- Family activities and travel
- Healthy foods and nutrition programs
Blue Medicare and Medicare Supplemental members who already enjoy receiving no-cost gym memberships through the Silver Sneakers exercise and wellness program can also take advantage of additional gym membership discounts through Blue365.
Blue365 is yet another way we’re making it easier for customers to make good choices about their health. It’s one of the many advantages you can mention to your BCBSNC patients, if they ask your advice on ways they can save on any of the health and wellness categories listed above.
