JUNE 1ST, 2021
Once upon a time, working from home was a rare treat. Now, more than a year after COVID-19 shook our world — and after trying to adjust to the new norm — working from home is the norm.
In prior years, National Work From Home Day was meant to celebrate the technological and cultural advances that make a whole year of working from home possible. This June 24, though, we want to celebrate the people who were forced to go remote suddenly and without any prior training, and who remained productive despite that. You know who you are. So, without further ado, we invite you to reward yourself for leading a massive cultural shift, and for keeping your cool with your kids, your partner and your dog while doing so.
When you first brought your desktop home and set it up on your dining room table, you thought it would be for a few weeks. Lo and behold, your boss tells you that you can remain working from home, “so long as you stay productive.” Yes, please. But, if your work-from-home projects require a good deal of printing or shipping, then The UPS Store could become your new trusted partner, and thanks to your AAA membership, you can save 5% on UPS® shipping and also receive a 15% savings on faxing, shredding, design, and office and mailing supplies.
Now that you’re working from home, you’re on your phone, smartwatch and laptop more than ever before. You need to stay connected, but poor connectivity and battery power across your devices makes that difficult. Don’t let minor inconveniences cause unnecessary stress. Trade in your old device for a Samsung S21 5G which, among other features, boasts incredible battery life. If you opt for the Galaxy Fold, you can get a Galaxy Watch3 for just $99. If it’s your computer giving your problems, invest in a new one when you shop Samsung, Dell or HP with your AAA membership.
Now that you’re working from home, you can finally ditch those pantsuits (at least the pants part) and rigid loafers and wear something comfy to work. Comfy doesn’t have to mean frumpy. If your lounge pants have seen better days, revamp your wardrobe with the help of Tanger Outlet Centers or Reebok Outlet Stores.
Are your eyes blurry from too many Zoom meetings? If you have been putting off your eye exam and squinting through an old prescription, show your AAA card at LensCrafters to get discounts on prescription glasses, contacts and eye exams.
It’s been a tough year, to say the least, and you deserve some recognition on this National Work From Home Day. We see you, we appreciate you and, with the help of our partners, we thank you.
