MilTribe and ID.me Join Forces to Offer Military Discounts from Top Retailers
SAN ANTONIO — MilTribe, the leading online resource for connecting and strengthening military families in their communities, has partnered with the leading digital identity verification platform, ID.me, to offer military discounts, and fund grants supporting military spouses and dependents.
MilTribe members verified through ID.me have access to military discounts from top consumer brands like Under Armour, Ray-Ban, Yeti, Hotwire and Lenovo, plus many others. The partnership connects these brands to the coveted military family and veteran consumer demographic. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds of each purchase made through MilTribe.com will be dedicated specifically to supporting military spouses and their families in local base communities through The MilTribe Foundation.
“We could not be more honored to have the opportunity to expand our relationship with ID.me, which allows us to offer more to military families,” MilTribe CEO Tim Kaufeldt said. “Through our partnership with an industry leader like ID.me, we not only bring deep military discounts to our current and veteran service members, but we further our mission to give back to local military communities by supporting military spouses and dependent children through The MilTribe Foundation.”
The MilTribe Foundation provides grants assisting military dependents in the ability to participate in academic, extracurricular, athletic and community programs. The foundation was formed by Kaufeldt who as a military dependent experienced how difficult life can be when continually dropped into new communities with each change of station. His vision is to help military spouses and children get involved in their new communities. The grants provided through the foundation will help them integrate more successfully into their new military and civilian communities.
“We are proud to be partnering with MilTribe to expand access to military discounts and support their mission to assist with the integration of military families in their communities,” said Blake Hall, founder and CEO of ID.me. “As a third-generation soldier and Iraq combat veteran, I am deeply committed to helping military families access their earned benefits and services.”
ID.me’s technology supports 200+ retailers, federal government agencies, financial institutions, health care organizations and nonprofits to verify customer identity and enhance access to benefits and services while preventing fraud. MilTribe uses ID.me to verify its military-exclusive members to provide a safe and secure online community to offer support, exchange information and buy and sell household goods. This new agreement is the first extension of ID.me’s affiliated marketing program to a private organization.
