Save up to 50 percent on national brands and local
favorites through Access
As a member of the MTA, you are entitled to
discounts through Access, the nation’s largest
savings network. Access understands the need for
valuable, relevant benefits that truly help enrich
members’ lives. With more in-store merchant
locations than any other private discount program,
Access offers unparalleled value every day. Access
deals are not just run-of-the-mill specials available
to the general public, however. They are exclusive
offers delivering deep discounts of up to 50
percent at restaurants, retailers, hotels, theme
parks and more.
We know the struggles you face. These days, every
dollar earned counts and every penny saved helps.
Many educators use their own money to pay for
school supplies to help support their students
while also trying to make the most of their
hard-earned dollars to support themselves and
their families. The beauty of the Access discount
program is that it is designed to help members
such as you save money — perhaps enough to
help you recover the cost of your dues!
Making the most of the Access program is
simple: The more you use it, the more you save.
The largest private discount
network of its kind,
more than 350,000
can be found
online by going to
logging in and then clicking on the “Access
Discounts” link. You can also save while you’re on
the go with the “My Deals” mobile app. Simply
download the app and show your phone to your
retailer in order to save. It’s that easy!
Access believes that the best savings occur at the
types of places where you already shop. You’ll
find unique savings in categories such as dining,
shopping, hotels and travel, car rentals, movies
and entertainment, recreation, home and garden,
health and beauty, and auto services. You can
enjoy both popular national brands and local
favorites. As a member of the MTA, you have
access to more than 5,800 Massachusetts
merchants, as well as more than 20,000 discounts
in the New England region.
See how much you can save by using the
Access discount program, brought to you by
MTA Benefits. You’ll be empowered by saving
hundreds of dollars each year — if not thousands
— on everyday purchases and big-ticket items.
You’ll find yourself saving instantly. So what are
you waiting for? Start saving today!
