Many companies offer employee discounts. I used to work at a company who owns 7 famous hotel brands. They've got hotels all over the world. They offer employee rate at all hotels, but of course, depending on availability. Our employee rates would be as low as $39 to as high as $59 or at most 70% off the regular hotel rate. Although the rooms available for employee rate are only the regular rooms, it's still a big discount! And that's in any hotel all over the world! I was able to use it only once in the 2 years that I worked for that company. Bummer! I used in a hotel abroad in one of my trips. Now I wish I used it more often. Does your company offer any employee discounts on their products or services? Do you make us of these discounts? Why or why not?

Yes they do offer. I work in hotel industries and I get discount when I dine and stay at the property and any sister properties around the world. If can save up money, why not? :)

At the moment, I really don't have any employee discounts to speak of. But I did use to have them at a previous job, and then I did use to take advantage of them. It was mostly financial discounts and discounts on groceries, which was really great!
