Purchasing Power Program

Purchasing Power offers eligible employees the opportunity to purchase name brand products via payroll deduction. 

Kent State employees who are benefits-eligible, employed by the university for at least six months, and earn a minimum of $16,000 a year are eligible to make purchases through Purchasing Power by visiting www.PurchasingPower.com . When logging on to the Purchasing Power website for the first time, you will need to provide a group code: use KSU2265.

Items available for purchase include computers, electronics and home appliances. There are a wide variety of brands offered, including Craftsman, Dell, Kenmore, Microsoft, Panasonic and Sony. There is no finance charge or fee. When an employee makes a purchase, the cost will be automatically deducted over a 12-month period from your Kent State paycheck.

Please note that while the university is offering this program, it has no control over the type or quality of merchandise offered.
