Do not abuse your Lululemon discounts. Remember you can only buy a Lululemon item with your discount for your own personal use. Buying sports bras and yoga pants in various sizes is a sure way to get your account flagged and possibly revoked from the program.

How Do You Get the Lululemon and First Responders Discount?

You cannot just show up at the cash register and ask for a discount. Apply for it beforehand and create a Lululemon account first. Sign into your existing or new account with your email and password and then follow the verification steps.

You will select from the following:

  • Military
  • First Responder
  • Medical Doctor or Licensed Nurse

Lululemon uses Sheer ID to verify your status. Be prepared to have a government-issued ID with you at the time of purchase.

How to Verify Your Military Status for a Lululemon Discount

In past years, military members received a 25% discount at Lululemon stores. But not all shoppers lived close to a retail location.

Lululemon streamlined the process requiring you to pre-register online. This means that you can use the discount on Lululemon’s website, on their app, or for in-store purchases. However, the discount is now 15%.

To verify your U.S. Military status, you will need to provide Lululemon (through SheerID) basic information including your name, date of birth, email address, current status (active duty, registered military dependent, reservist, veteran), and classify your branch of service.

Eligible Military Personnel:

You must confirm whether you are part of the:

  • Air Force
  • Army
  • Coast Guard
  • Marine Corps
  • Navy
  • Air National Guard
  • Army Reserve
  • Army National Guard
  • Coast Guard Reserve
  • Marine Corps Reserve
  • Navy Reserve
  • Former members of the armed forces of the United States
