As the economic impacts of the COVID-19 crisis continue to unfold, millions of people have suddenly found themselves in financial dire straits. More than 3.3 million Americans filed for unemployment over the past several weeks as companies have been forced into massive layoffs and closures. Millions of others are working extraordinarily long and grueling hours as medical professionals or first responders treating patients with the deadly virus.
In response to this, companies around the world are stepping up to contribute in any way they can. In an effort to support the fearless workers on the frontline of the pandemic as well as all who have been financially impacted by the crisis, Bluebird is joining other national brands in providing increased access to products and services. Check out our list of companies offering free or discounted resources during COVID-19.
Bluebird Botanicals - 30% off all ingestible products during April
Our promise at Bluebird Botanicals has always been simple - we’re here for you. And while these times have left many suddenly feeling stranded and hopeless, our promise hasn’t changed.
Last month, we extended our assistance program benefits to customers in need, making it possible to provide a one-time 30% discount to help members of our flock. As the COVID-19 crisis continues into the foreseeable future, we’ve opted to replace our temporary assistance offering with a 30% off sale on ingestibles for the month of April - while supplies last. Just apply the code APRIL30 at checkout.
We hope that this can help ease part of the financial burden for our customers, and allow you to maintain your health and wellness routine uninterrupted.
