IGA adds new benefit for its entire community with TicketsAtWork

IGA’s pleased to unveil, for the first time, a benefit partnership that impacts all members of our community – designers and publishers, minions, conventions and retailers, freelancers, and more. We’ve partnered up with TicketsAtWork to offer all of our community members some fantastic deals on — well, fun!

TicketsAtWork is most famous for its discounts on admission to theme parks and attractions and tickets to everything from movies to Broadway shows, concerts and sporting events – and don’t get us wrong, it’s pretty awesome for that! But in addition, TicketsAtWork can save you big on hotels and rental cars, which we hope will be a huge help to members and Minions traveling to conventions. You can also score discounts on things like AAA memberships, Sams Club memberships, and even new and used cars.

If you have an account, you’re eligible for this benefit. If you’re a member publisher, retailer, distributor, partner or convention, you may extend this benefit to your employees and/or volunteers as an additional perk of employment. It’s open to IGA Minions and freelancers, too — we strongly recommend that Minions not book hotel stays for conventions without checking it out. Signing up for an account costs you nothing; there’s no buy in or setup fee.

To get started, simply to go and create an account. When prompted for a company code, enter IGAFUN and check out the ridiculous deals. It’s that simple. You can save an extra $10 off your first ticket or hotel purchase with the promo code 10Welcome at checkout. If you need help, they’ve got a call center that’s open pretty much around the clock.

Matt’s been a TicketsAtWork member for 13 years, and he’s super excited for IGA to have grown large enough to be eligible to sign up and bring this benefit to you all!
