Hidden Benefits of Being a Stockholder

One of my favourite Canadian web sites, RedFlagDeals, had an interesting post regarding the Lenovo and IBM Employee Purchase Program.

Within the post, there's a link that directs you to the IBM Stockholder Purchase Program web page where Lenovo offers discounts on its entire product line. You require a passcode to sign in to the IBM Stockholders store where you can apparently shop for ThinkPad notebooks, ThinkCentre desktops, ThinkVision monitors, ThinkPlus accessories from Lenovo.

According to IBM Investor Relations,

The IBM U.S. Shareholder Purchase Program (SPP) is a program that makes a wide range of IBM products available at discounted prices to IBM Shareholders. Please note that this program is available only to residents of the United States and Canada.

In order to participate in the program, you must be a current stockholder and have a current Stockholder Offer ID Number. Stockholder Offer ID Numbers are mailed to stockholders. If you are a stockholder, look for future offers in the mail.

Depending on the discounts available, the SPP could be an amazing perk to IBM shareholders in the market for IBM and Lenovo equipment.

Perhaps other companies also offer similar purchase programs for their shareholders so if you know of any, please share them with us.
