In the wake of the Parkland shooting and the NRA‘s tone-deaf reaction, companies have been cut ties with them at a pretty fast rate this week and the list continues to grow into the weekend.

Delta Air Lines just announced this morning that it’s ending discounted rates for NRA members. The company said in a tweet.

“We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website.”

United Airlines followed, saying the company will no longer offer discounts on flights to the NRA annual meeting.

TrueCar, a car buying service, said late Friday that it would end its deal with the NRA as of February 28.

First National Bank of Omaha on Thursday pledged to stop issuing an NRA-branded Visa card, plus a wave of car rental outfits. Enterprise, Alamo and National car rental groups, announced that it will end the discount deal it has with the NRA on March 26 and Hertz said in a tweet that it’s also ending its NRA rental car discount program.

Avis and Budget told CNNMoney that it too was ending its partnership with the organization. An Avis Budget Group spokesperson said,

“Effective March 26, our brands will no longer provide the NRA member discount.”

A spokesperson for moving van lines, Allied and North American, which are both owned by Sirva, said Friday that the brands “no longer have an affiliate relationship with the NRA effective immediately.”

Insurance giant MetLife said Friday that it’s ending its discounts on home and auto insurance for NRA members.

Symantec which makes the Norton anti-virus software and owns the identity theft protection company LifeLock, said Friday that it is severing ties with the NRA. And SimpliSafe, which sells home security systems, said the same.

Two other companies, Chubb and Wyndham Hotel Group said that they’ve recently ended partnerships with the NRA.

And this list continues to grow. Hit ’em in the wallet.
