EmployeeMall announced today that usage among its five largest clients has more than doubled in the last year. Data shows that visits in June have increased 115% over the previous year.
EmployeeMall manages employee discount shopping programs for major employers nationwide. These programs offer exclusive, members-only discounts from hundreds of major retailers such as Target, Sears, 1-800-FLOWERS, Barnes & Noble, and more.
“Naturally, we expected an increase due to the recession but were surprised to see just how many more people are using our services to save money,” said Tom Messick, president of EmployeeMall.
What are employees buying during this economic downturn? “Electronics,” said Messick, “in a very big way. Our members are finding they can save more on the latest high-definition televisions, DVD players and other entertainment devices through our program than they can locally or online.”
Quenching this desire for high-end electronics at steep discounts has led EmployeeMall to secure deals with manufacturers such as Philips, Panasonic, and Toshiba. Other categories experiencing growth include movie and theme park tickets, communications, and gift items. Messick expects continued growth: “Saving large amounts of money on consumer goods and services is becoming more of a necessity for our members. Despite the economy, the need to make purchases does not go away, and that’s where our employee discount program is able to help.”
EmployeeMall is a provider of custom, managed employee discount programs. Founded in 1998, EmployeeMall provides services to companies across the country including Ameriprise Financial, FirstEnergy, and NASA.
