Overstock.com offers free loyalty program membership to first responders

Overstock.com is offering free Club O loyalty program memberships to active police officers, full-time firefighters, paramedics and certified emergency medical technicians.

Club O members receive free shipping and Club O Rewards equal to at least 5% of all purchases. In the Extra Rewards Store, customers can earn up to 25% in Club O Rewards. The Exclusives page offers weekly deals where Club O members can earn up to 40% in Club O Rewards. Members can accumulate these rewards and use them on future purchases. Those who qualify for the program can enroll by visiting the first-responders signup section on Overstock.

"First responders risk their lives to protect us," said Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne. "As a company, we are showing our gratitude by offering free memberships in Club O, the most generous loyalty program in online shopping."

First responders can have their identity verified through ID.me and relayed to Overstock to receive their free Club O membership. Once individuals sign up, they only need to enter a user name and password to receive benefits.

For customers who are not members, shipping is free on orders of at least $50. For orders less than $50, shipping is $2.95, regardless of how many items are in each individual order.
