The U-M Showcase is pleased to be able to offer payroll deduction to eligible U-M faculty and staff. Purchases made via payroll deduction must be made in person at a Showcase store, although we encourage you to view the payroll deduction contract in advance.
You will need to show your UM ID (Mcard or hospital ID badge) at time of purchase.
We encourage you to submit your payroll deduction request online. This allows us to prepare your request and reserve the product(s) you want for up to three business days. You will need to show your UMID at the time of pick-up.
