lululemon Sweat Collective, Military & First Responder Discount
Reading Time: 4 minutes

lululemon offers an awesome deal for fitness pros, military, and first responders. The discount is pretty generous. It’s 25% off regular-priced merchandise!

It used to include sale merchandise but they ended that benefit in 2023 when they relaunched the application process for the Sweat Collective program

Currently, lululemon offers discounts for the following groups:

  • Fitness Pros through their Sweat Collective program
  • Military employees
  • First Responders
  • lululemon store, warehouse, and corporate employees

Below we’ll discuss the different discount programs and how you can determine if you’re eligible for each program.

What is the lululemon Sweat Collective?

What is it?

The Sweat Collective discount is offered to current fitness professionals and group fitness instructors. 

How Does Sweat Collective Work?

Head over to lululemon’s Sweat Collective page and sign up to become part of the program.

You will need to provide a paycheck from your fitness employer AND a link or image of your online teaching schedule. You must be a current teacher or trainer to receive the discount. They use SheerID to verify your instructor status and will immediately let you know if you’ve been accepted into the program or not. 

The difference between Sweat Collective and the other discounts are that members of the Sweat Collective discount can be toggled on and applied to online purchases. Members can also buy merchandise in-store and provide a phone number to receive the Sweat Collective discount.

Unfortunately, you cannot place an order over the phone AND use the Sweat Collective discount code.

You can also use your Sweat Collective discount internationally. I’ve been able to use it in Canada, Berlin and Switzerland. You’ll often find limited editions and special collections when shopping lululemon abroad. Sometimes lululemon products may even be cheaper if the conversion rate is in your favor (like in Canada for US visitors!).

The Sweat Collective discount cannot be used on friends and family and is for personal use only. I have been able to buy some unisex items such as the Days Shade Ball Cap, my favorite hat, or the Everywhere Belt Bag!

What is a First Responder?

First responders typically include paramedics, emergency medical technicians, police officers, firefighters, rescuers, and correctional officers. You will need to provide an ID verifying your employment as a first responder each time you make a purchase in-store ONLY.

First responders are required to purchase in-store in order to receive their discount. They cannot use the discount online.

The first responder discount is 25% for both full-priced and WMTM merchandise and is for personal use only.

All Military Employees are Offered the Discount

Military employees AND their significant others can use the military discount. You must have a valid Government ID to receive a discount and must present your ID when you are ready to make the purchase.

Military employees are required to purchase in-store in order to receive their discount. They cannot use the discount online.

The military discount is 25% for both full-priced and WMTM merchandise.

Some stores will even hold an event in honor of military and first responders. Follow your local store’s Facebook page and opt to receive notifications and invites to events.

What About the lululemon Employee Discount?

Full-time lululemon employees get a 60% discount on their products along with 75% off markdowns.

Part-time or seasonal lululemon employees get 40% off regular priced merchandise and 60% off markdown items.

Employee discounts are for personal use only, unless specified otherwise.

However, lululemon does offer a friends and family discount once a year during the holiday season. They’ll typically have a staff shop night where employees are allowed to use their discounts for friends and family purchases.

Don’t Abuse Your Discount

When making purchases using the eligible discounts, you are only allowed to buy merchandise for personal use only. You cannot buy merchandise for family, friends, or significant others.

Anyone caught abusing the discount will get their privileges revoked.

Other common abuses of the program may include:

  • Buying to resell. Many people will go to lululemon outlets to buy products for cheap and resell them online or in-person at a higher price point. If employees are caught buying to resell, that may result in termination.
  • Buying For Strangers. Strangers may ask you to use their discount for them. Don’t do it. It’s not worth getting your discount revoked.
