Summary of the various discounts for U.S. HP/HPE retirees. 

From former employees of HP and HPE.  (May 4, 2024)  Question? Email: info@hpalumni.org

Discussed on the HPAA Benefits Forum.

Discounts on HP products. Discounts on ink and toner no longer available. Employee/retiree discounts still available on almost everything else -- including business products. Member advice: HP Retiree Discounts 

Discounts on non-HP products and services. We have found no HP document from the last 20 years that extended corporate discounts to retirees. Back when HP was much smaller, there were some that were informally leveraged from corporate contracts.

There are two advertising companies promoting discounts to retirees and current employees. They use web pages and emails with the employer's name and logo. Advertisers pay them for sales leads.

Employers promote this as a benefit -- with little or no cost, effort, or involvement. Unrelated to the employer's corporate purchasing. (Some offers may be for products, merchants, or services that your employer might not endorse.) You will get emails like "May is Mental Health Awareness month!" with the company logo.

- Beneplace. Free. Advertises identical "exclusive discounts" to employees and retirees of thousands of companies -- including HP and HPE. How to use Beneplace discounts: Beneplace Discounts

- Passport. The free "HP Retiree Passport Corporate" program now includes most of the restaurants on the popular, long-standing $79/year "Passport Dining" program -- in addition to ads for many other products and services. (No report of a similar program for HPE retirees.) Details: Passport Discount Card 

Car rental. Very helpful advice from extensive HPAA discussions: Rental Car Discounts

If you use an old badge, business card, or code and something goes badly wrong: Your former employer and their insurance company will not be able to help, since they were not a party to the transaction. Any insurance coverage included with the corporate discount is invalid. Car rental companies can void the entire contract -- including supplemental liability, accident insurance, and LDW. Details: Your old employee car rental discount

Wireless service.  Reassigning your company-paid cell phone number -- and possibly keeping the rate. The major wireless vendors appear to have shut down retiree discounts for most companies and organizations. Advice: Wireless Service Discounts

Monterey Bay Aquarium. HP discount no longer available, but badge or ID reportedly can be used to get into VIP line. Retiree Badge

Discount tickets, including Disney World and Disneyland. No longer available at HP/HPE sites. Check Beneplace -- and be sure to also check the "Specials" tab on your HP Inc or HPE Beneplace page. Beneplace Discounts  As with all discounts, be check your other affiliations.

Retiree gold badge. HP and HPE. Now primarily symbolic. May be useful for discounts at local businesses near major HP sites. Discount at certain large See's Candy stores. Retiree Badge

Vehicle purchase. Go to Vehicle Purchase Discounts

Insurance programs. Member advice: Insurance Discounts

Group legal services. Member feedback from HPAA Benefits Forum discussions: Group Legal Services
