    Website Search Tool Updated 

    Good afternoon San Jacinto College,

    The marketing department, in collaboration with the IT department, has implemented a new search platform on the College website, sanjac.edu. The only visible change you will notice is alternate search suggestions at the top of the search results page, with the heading “Did you mean.” The purpose of this change is to improve upon relevant search results when using the College website. The new platform will allow for more customization and editing of search results. Please report any technical errors you might encounter to IT by sending an email to techsupport@sjcd.edu. We will continue to monitor and analyze search results to provide the best experience possible.

    Available September 1st! The Discount Purchase Program 

    During Annual Enrollment we visited each campus bringing important benefits information that would be coming for this next year.  One of the new features is a Discount Purchase Program.

    Starting September 1, you and your family can shop using a new online Discount Purchase Program, operated by Beneplace. The program offers discounts
    on products and services such as gym memberships, jewelry, furniture, computers, automobiles, travel, electronics, banking, cell phones, weight management
    programs, and more. There is no enrollment or membership fee for the program. The purchase program will be available through http://www.discountprogramers.com <http://www.discountprogramers.com&gt;

    The program allows you to shop online and purchase certain products or services at discounted prices through the Beneplace website. The discounts are available to all State of Texas and higher education active full-time and part-time employees, retirees, and their families. Please note some discounts will only be available to active employees (e.g. Verizon).

    Visit the Discount Purchase Program website, click on any of the offers, and follow the instructions in the “How to Participate” section of the page. Most discounts are only available online; however, you can get some discounts in person.  For example, Toyota has program information posted online, but to complete the transaction you must go in person to a participating dealership. For example, Sears has program information posted online, but the transaction can only be completed in person or over the phone. The discount amount varies by offer. Each offer will list the discount and instructions for receiving it.

    New vendors are approved quarterly by ERS; however, once approved, vendor’s discounts are subject to change.  New offers approved by ERS will be added periodically.  At this time, there is an offer from Carperks and Toyota. Both work with select dealers. Some of the vendors who offer discounts require a discount code. The discount code is usually a number listed in the “How to Participate” section of the page. All offers may have different instructions and discount codes. Carefully review the “How to Participate” section on the page.

    Beneplace is a private company located in Austin that provides access to employee purchase programs. You may contact Beneplace customer service representatives at (800) 683-2886, Monday – Friday, 7:30 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. CT.

    Q.  I don’t have internet access is there something Beneplace can mail to me?

    A.   No, but you can visit the site and download a list of available offers.

    You will need to work directly with the merchant to resolve any problems with your orders. ERS does not endorse or sponsor any service or service provider. Beneplace can assist with general information about the offer and any escalated customer service inquires.

    If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

    Thank you,

    Benefits Coordinator

    John Thomas (JT) Lyday 

    Our deepest sympathy to Jo Lyday in the recent passing of her husband of
    60 years, John Thomas (JT) Lyday on Friday, August 27.  Jo retired after
    teaching English for 21years on both Central and South campuses.  She
    also served as the director of the South Campus Writer’s Center.  A
    memorial service for JT Lyday will be held at Palmer Memorial Episcopal
    Church, 6221 Main Street, Houston, TX, 77030, at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday,
    18 September 2010.

    A reception will follow the service.  Anyone who wishes to honor him
    should volunteer to read to children; tutor those in need of help; coach
    a children’s football team; participate in improving local schools; or
    donate to athletic programs at Baylor University, Waco, Texas.
    Educating youth was his passion.  He wasn’t fond of flowers.
