Twitter users are asking their favorite brands to #BoycottNRA

Being a member of the National Rifle Association has its perks, many of which are altogether unrelated to guns: Members enjoy discounts on rental cars, hotel rooms, wine, and even health and life insurance.

Or that was the case until Thursday. Just more than one week after the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, First National Bank of Omaha, the nation’s largest privately-held bank, said it would no longer offer an NRA-branded Visa card to members following “customer feedback.” Scores of other companies have since followed its lead, severing their ties with the powerhouse gun-rights organization. Twitter users have showed their support of the movement—and anger toward the organization—with the hashtag #BoycottNRA

Here are the corporations that have ditched the NRA (so far): 

Enterprise, Alamo, and National

Just hours after First National Bank’s announcement on Thursday, Enterprise Holdings, a car rental conglomerate that owns major brands Enterprise, Alamo, and National, announced it would be ending its discount program for NRA members on March 26. 


The announcements continued Friday, with the security software corporation saying on Twitter it would cease to offer deals for NRA members. Symantec, the parent company of Norton and LifeLock, had previously given members $37 off a standard subscription to Norton software, according to ThinkProgress. The webpage advertising the discount has since been made unavailable. 

 MetLife Auto & Home

The insurance company, which offered perks to members including group discounts on auto insurance, told Bloomberg on Friday it had ended the program. 


A home security company SimpliSafe, which gave NRA members two free months of home monitoring with the purchase of a home security system, said it had discontinued the program in a statement to ThinkProgress

Allied and North American Van Lines

The two moving companies, which are owned by the same parent company, told ThinkProgress on Friday it was ending its relationship with the gun rights organization: “We have asked them to remove our listing from their benefits site,” a spokesperson for parent company SIRVA said. On Tuesday, before it ended its relationship with the NRA, a representative of North American called it a “great program” in an interview with ThinkProgress


Hertz, another major car rental company, announced Friday that it would no longer offer a discount to NRA members, which had been up to 25 percent off base rental rates, according to ThinkProgress


The telemedicine company told ThinkProgress in an email Friday it would no longer give NRA members a discount on the monthly rate for its telemedicine services. 


An insurance company, Chubb told Reuters on Friday it will end its participation in an insurance policy for NRA members, called “NRA Carry Guard.” Though a spokesperson said the company had notified the NRA three months ago of its plans to end its involvement. 

Avis and Budget

Yet two more car rental companies ended their relationships with the NRA on Friday, ThinkProgress reported. The companies, which are owned by the same parent company, previously gave up to a 25 percent discount to members on base rental rates, like Hertz. 

According to ThinkProgress, companies including Vinesse Wines, which operates the “official wine club of the NRA,” and, which gives members access to an exclusive hotel booking website, have yet to end their relationships with the NRA. 


On Saturday morning, Delta airlines announced it would no longer provide discounted rates to the National Rifle Association, becoming the 16th company to cut its ties with the organization since the February 14th shooting.

United Airlines

United Airlines followed suit a few hours later.

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
