Leading brands expand support of frontline health workers after SheerID reported over one million health workers received special offers in April via its platform

Portland, OR – May 18, 2020. Though Nurse Appreciation Week concluded earlier this month, brands across the country have recognized the need to extend special offers to healthcare workers throughout May and beyond. With reported COVID-19 cases still growing in most parts of the country, healthcare workers are expected to be under intense pressure for the foreseeable future. Accordingly, brands in numerous industries are providing special offers to workers from a broad array of healthcare professions, including nurses, doctors, first responders, among others. 

“These are unprecedented times for the millions of healthcare workers who take care of us,” stated Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “Brands are stepping up to the plate to show their appreciation for these professionals, a trend that we expect to continue for many months to come.”

Over the past month, the number of healthcare workers who have redeemed a special offer from a SheerID partner brand has surged by 40x, with over 1 million health workers receiving a special offer from a brand through the SheerID platform. SheerID allows brands to instantly verify the eligibility of people who attempt to redeem an offer, ensuring that offers aren’t abused by fraudsters.   

Chipotle, for example, worked with SheerID to verify eligibility for its 4HEROES buy one, give one healthcare worker offer. “We saw a tremendous outpouring from our fans wanting to support these frontline workers with our buy one, give one campaign. SheerID’s support was critical in ensuring that these meals went to eligible medical workers quickly and seamlessly,” stated Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer of Chipotle.

The following brands have provided an offer to healthcare workers that, with the help of SheerID’s Identity Marketing Platform, ensures rewards are instantly and securely provided to eligible recipients:
