Greyhound Package Express Adds New Exclusive Shipping Discounts for America’s Veterans
 
DALLAS (Feb. 27, 2014) —Greyhound Lines Inc. and Veterans Advantage Inc. today announced a new special savings program for Veterans Advantage VetRewards Card members, honoring military and veteran families with a 40% nationally recognized discount on Greyhound Package Express (GPX) the company’s expedited shipping service.

U.S. Active Duty Military, Veterans, National Guard & Reserve and their families holding the Veterans Advantage VetRewards Card can move their personal goods inexpensively with the 40% Veterans Advantage discount on their Standard & Priority counter-to-counter services, as well as Greyhound’s newly launched Door-to-Door services.

“We are pleased to expand our partnership with Veterans Advantage for these vital shipping services,” said Dave Phillips, vice president, GPX. “A 40% discount on our already low prices is a significant way to honor the military service of our Veterans Advantage customers.”

Since 2004, the two companies have partnered to provide an exclusive 20% walk-up fare discount for bus travel for Veterans Advantage VetRewards Card members. The discount is recognized online, by phone, and in Greyhound terminals nationwide.

“There are great opportunities for our members to use this great new discount,” said Scott Higgins, Founder and CEO of Veterans Advantage. “Small business owners, a substantial number of which are run by Vets, can use this all year long. And it is also great for travelers shipping large packages ahead of their trips, student’s moving in each semester, care packages from their parents, and gift giving for all families all year round.”

“For all of these reasons, Greyhound Package Express is a great military & veteran family-friendly offering to complement Greyhound’s already low fares for bus travel,” added Higgins.
