About Us

The Organization

GovernmentShopping.com is a discount marketplace of consumer goods and services for local, state and federal government employees and their dependents. It is one of the fastest growing destinations for government and military families to find special offers exclusively negotiated for their benefit. Featuring the largest selection of online government offers, the site updates every hour from over 300 Partner Stores. For over a decade, GovernmentShopping has facilitated the contribution of millions for dollars to Moral, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) while saving government and military consumers millions on their online purchases. GovernmentShopping also serves as a non-dues, voluntary benefit solution for Government Benefit and Employee Association Managers.

Founded in 2003 by retired military, GovernmentShopping maintains offices in Washington, DC.

The Program 

GovernmentShopping partners provide special offers to US Government customers and contractors.  Offers differ from store to store, so please check the individual store’s profile page for special discounts and potential savings. To qualify for these special discounts you must access our partners through links on the GovernmentShopping website. GovernmentShopping ensures Partner Stores meet special requirements to be registered members with GovernmentShopping.  The company’s mobile enabled website allows its members to access goods and services at discounts from around the world regardless of the device being used.

We ask our partners to give special care with respect to privacy and true opt-in marketing of customer data collected during a purchase.  Details can be found in each store’s privacy policy located on their individual website. Our partners all provide professional customer assistance to help make your shopping experience more enjoyable.  For questions or customer service issues such as returns and refunds, please contact the specific retail partner. “Contact Us” pages are offered for each individual store. As always, GovernmentShopping is also available to assist in any way we can.

Shipping charges may be different for each partner.  State taxes may be charged by some retail partners. These do not include APO/FPO addresses.

We appreciate your loyalty and encourage you to invite your family members and other supporters to visit GovernmentShopping.com so that they can save money and make a difference too!

Brand Change

GovernmentShopping.com was previously named DHS-Exchange and was contracted by USCG/DHS to build and manage. Since 2005 we have been running the program. And during that time, other government agencies not part of DHS wanted to participate including the Army Corp of Engineers, US Postal Service and others. So a decision was made to rebrand the exchange to GovernmentShopping to reflect a broader audience. We also changed the model where we are now leveraging our retail partner websites rather than managing 5+ million skus in daily feeds.

We hope you enjoy the benefit!
