The heat is on, and it’s time to shape up for summer. Did you know that as a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina member you are eligible for an exclusive, valuable discount program that can help with that, called Blue 365?

As a member and a fitness professional, I was so excited to find out about these great deals.  With Blue365, you and your family can get discounts on a wide variety of fitness, health and lifestyle products, and services — including gym memberships!

The Blue365 deals are divided into the following categories: 

  • Fitness
  • Personal Care
  • Healthy Eating
  • Wellness
  • Financial Health
  • Lifestyle

There’s so much more — from hotel discounts to vision. It’s definitely worth checking out.

Here’s How It Works

It’s easy! Go to Blue Connect to sign up and visit our Blue365 website, where you can review all of the deals available and learn more. As a Certified Personal Trainer and group fitness instructor, I was most excited about the truly valuable benefit of discount gym memberships and fitness trackers!

So I thought I’d highlight this and some of the other healthy lifestyle options currently available to you on Blue365.

It’s easy to sign up and it’s free

This discount program is available to all Blue Cross NC members, but to participate you need to enroll in Blue365 on the website. Joining is easy, and there is no charge to do so. Once you sign up, you’ll have immediate access to all of the deals online.

Note: These were the discounts available at the time of this publication. Offers are subject to change, and new deals are added regularly. Check the Blue365 website for the latest information.
