Oakland businesses should check out “Pitt Perks.” The University of Pittsburgh provides an employee discount platform that provides a broad range of discounts and the opportunity to purchase certain voluntary benefits at group rates through payroll deduction. The program, known as “PittPerks”, includes many practical discounts. This program was initiated in 2015 and new offerings are being added frequently.

As well as this, Oakland businesses should check out “UPMC Perks.” UPMC Perks are discounts offered to UPMC staff, physicians, and volunteers on merchandise, recreation, and services. More information can be found here.


Touted as the region’s economic engine, Oakland is Pennsylvania’s 3rd largest area of economic activity and is home to the driving forces of Pittsburgh’s 21st century economy.
