Lorraine Maynard, right, routinely drops by the desk of Laverne Mitchell in Duke Staff and Family Programs to purchase discount movie tickets. PERQS offers two discounts from the $8.50 ticket price at Stadium 10 Theater in Durham: $7 Director's Pass tickets (valid any time) or $6 Producer's Pass (valid two weeks after a movie's release)

"I know there are lots of movies on DVDs and online, but there is somethign special about getting out of the house and going to the theater," said Maynard. "It makes the time special." Dance at a discount The Paul Taylor company is one of many dance troupes that come to Durham each summer as part of the American Dance Festival. In 2009, Duke PERQS offered a 20 percent discount to Duke employees for tickets to ADF performances. Duke PERQS offers discounts of at least 10% for movies, the American Dance Festival, events at the RBC Center in Raleigh and much more. PJane and Bob Hickman are repeat customers at BJ’s Wholesale Club.

“It’s so convenient,” said Jane Hickman, who works in the Project Office at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). “We often stop by after work on our way home to Johnston County.”

The Hickmans buy a range of products from BJ’s – from Cheerios to dress shirts. They particularly appreciate the savings on household items. “I love buying the personal care items – it is amazing how much you can save on small things like shampoos and razors,” Jane Hickman said.

And sometimes the Hickmans get savings on much bigger items. Earlier this summer, Jane rented a car for a vacation trip. By using her BJ’s membership, she was able to save more than $50.

“That’s more than the price of the yearly membership,” she said.

Pets are family too! Experience Biltmore's grandeur at a savings JoAnn Kempel (left) is fond of the Biltmore, a 250-room French-style chateau near Ashville that is the largest privately owned home in the U.S.

"The architecture is just so impressive," she said. "I love the details, the gargoyles. My husband enjoys the exhibit that shows how Biltmore was constructed.

Kempel and her husband have visited the Biltmore several times, often with friends. "I buy my tickets with the Duke discount and share this beautiful piece of history with them. It makes the holidays even more special," she said.
