  • GPS automatically shows merchants and savings that are closest to your current location or you can search by category
  • Tap on a merchant to view offers & tap on an offer for redemption details
  • You typically show the offer on your smart phone at payment in physical locations or enter a code for online purchases

To get started:

  • On your smartphone, visit the the Apple or Google store and search for ESM or Endless Savings & More
  • During registration you will be asked for an organization code, which for NASA members is: nasa
  • Allow location services on the app (ESM uses locations services to automatically show you offers that are closest to your current location first)
