So if you’ve been following OMK for any length of time, you know we’ve been writing heavily about the various types of military discounts available.
In my preliminary research, I noticed that there was a decent amount of interest in finding out whether or not Patagonia had / has a military discount.
When you visit the official page on the Patagonia military discount, you’ll see the following:
Well, that’s not much help, is it?
Deciding to dig a bit further, I figured I’d have a chat with one of their online representatives.
What is the Patagonia Military Discount?
After speaking with the rep, it sounds like they don’t have an official military discount.
Rather, they offer a ‘Pro account’.
Pro accounts can be created by specific military / law enforcement groups, and the discounts range widely.
Here’s a transcript of our chat below:
Layla (2/24/2020, 12:07:04 PM): Hello Rob! Thank you for waiting. My name is Layla. How may I help you today?
Rob (2/24/2020, 12:07:27 PM): Hey Layla, Good morning. Trying to figure out what your military discount is all about.
Rob (2/24/2020, 12:07:58 PM): Can you provide me any details on it? What the discount is? How to redeem it, any restrictions, etc.
Layla (2/24/2020, 12:08:02 PM): Hi there!
Layla (2/24/2020, 12:09:29 PM): So we don’t necessarily have a Military discount, but you’re totally able to apply for a Pro account!
Layla (2/24/2020, 12:10:01 PM): The Pro discount ranges from person to person within different categories, so I’d definitely reach out to our pro team for more details on this, as they can give you exact information.
Layla (2/24/2020, 12:10:14 PM): Here is their email! Patagoniapro@patagonia.com.
Rob (2/24/2020, 12:11:22 PM): ok that works! Thanks for that info!
So, long story short, you can ‘apply’ for a pro account, but there’s no guarantee you’ll get in.
My guess is, Patagonia only offers a military discount to specific federal law enforcement agencies, including:
- Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
- US Marshals Service
- Customs and Border Protection
- Federal Air Marshals
- US Secret Service
- Specific military units
Unfortunately, that’s about the extent of the discount details I can find out.
If you fit into any of these categories, I would recommend you reach out to them via the email listed above in the chat transcript.
Apart from that, there are several other companies that sell similar products to Patagonia that actually DO offer a military discount.
