Information for perks providers

What kind of discount do I have to provide?

It's up to you! Depending on your business, it could be 10 percent off an oil change or tax preparation service. It could be a free cup of coffee for stopping into your restaurant or a free dessert with the purchase of a meal. When you sign up as a Passport Perks provider, your discount will be listed in the Passport Perks provider database at www.michigan.org/dnr-perks

How will my customers know my business is a Passport Perks provider?

You'll receive a free small window cling to display in-store. This lets people know that your business offers a Passport Perks discount, and that you're a supporter of Michigan's woods and waters. 

How will my staff know which customers are eligible for our discount?

To receive the discount, customers must show a vehicle registration with the words "RECREATION PASSPORT" printed at the top. Only customers who purchase the Recreation Passport through the Secretay of State are eligible for discounts, those who purchase it at the parks are not.

Is it free to be a Passport Perks provider?

Yes, becoming a Passport Perks provider is completely free and nearly every business in Michigan is eligible. Just decide on your discount offer, then fill out and submit the online application. Once your application is processed, you will be mailed Passport Perks signage to display it in your store to inform customers of your participation in this statewide program.
