Lenovo (formerly IBM) offers discounts on
new computers to DC 37 members

DC 37 members can receive discounts on computer purchases through a discount plan arranged by Lenovo (formerly IBM) and the union.The discount program has been available to DC 37 members since 2000. Lenovo is the successor company for personal computers previously provided by IBM under the discount program. The Lenovo plan offers up to 10 percent off the prices on purchases normally made through the company’s website, catalogue or 800 telephone number.

The discounts for DC 37 members are available through Lenovo’s Corporate Employee Purchase Program. Members must use a special code, “4417,” to participate in the discount plan.

To find out about the products offered by the Lenovo Corporate Employee Purchase Program, go to its website at The available products include computers, notebooks, CD- and DVD-ROM drives and software.

“At any time, the products vary, so it pays to check the website to consider the latest offers,” said Moira Dolan, an assistant director in the DC 37 Research and Negotiations Dept., who arranged for the union’s participation in the program. It is also wise to shop around, because retailers also offer discounts, Ms. Dolan said.
