Employee Discount Programs

ODP Business Solutions (formerly known as Office Depot)

ODP Business Solutions has extended the university’s pricing to all employees through the Employee Purchase Program (EPP). This means faculty and staff are able to purchase personal use products and services at the university’s discounted price. The lowest eligible price will be given. Discounts are not stackable. 

Employees who wish to use the discount should print the Employee Purchase Program Card (PDF) and present it when checking out at the store to receive reduced pricing. ODP Business Solutions will laminate the EPP card at no charge if asked. 

Employees also may purchase personal-use supplies online. Detailed instructions on establishing an online account and applying the university’s pricing are provided here.

If there are any issues accessing the links above, follow the SharePoint Log In Instructions.

Business supplies should be purchased using the Ariba catalog, and additional information is available on the Office Supplies webpage

Sherwin-Williams Employee Discount Program 

Purdue University has negotiated a discount for all employees with Sherwin-Williams through the Preferred Business Partner Program. Faculty and staff can purchase paints and stains at 30% off and painting supplies at 15% off. Employees must present the Preferred Business Partner Card at the store to receive the discount. 

In addition, when employees use the Preferred Business Partner Card, 2% of a net purchase, after all discounts and taxes, will be donated to charitable organizations committed to supporting affordable housing in local communities.

Technology Discounts For Students & Staff

Qualified Purdue faculty, staff, students and some alumni have access to negotiated pricing for computer hardware, software and mobile service plans through the Purdue IT Shopping program. The program includes access to online vendor sites with Purdue pricing. It also includes discounted software available for purchase from OnTheHub (formerly Kivuto), a company providing electronic software delivery and software license eligibility.
