Who secures the businesses for the card?
For up to 90% profit, you secure the businesses with our easy one page signup form. For 50% profit, we will secure the discounts for you (minimum 500 card order).
[Back to Top]

Do you have select businesses already on board?
We do not have any national contracts with any businesses or franchises. Since most franchises are independently owned, it would be difficult to get a card accepted at all locations everywhere because it's up to the discretion of each location's owner or manager.
[Back to Top]

What kind of businesses participate?
A wide range of businesses participate in the savings card fundraiser. Some examples are national franchises such as McDonald's, Pizza Hut, or local businesses that offer services such as carwashes, dry cleaning, and oil changes.
[Back to Top]

Can more than one location, such as McDonald's, be listed on the card?
Yes. As long as you get approval from both locations we can list them on the card. If both locations honor the same offer, we will list both addresses on the card. If the offers differ, we will put the offers in two different boxes.
[Back to Top]

Are the offers good for a one time use or repeated uses?
The cards are good for repeated uses for an entire year.
[Back to Top]

What kind of offers are on the card?
There are a variety of deals that can be offered depending on your local merchant. A typical offer is a “Buy one, get one free” deal. Please download the list of past merchant and offers to get an idea of what kind of offers the businesses can put on the card.
[Back to Top]

How long does it take to secure the offers?
The time it takes to secure local merchants all depends on your organization's efforts. It generally takes 1 to 2 weeks to secure local merchants. It is very important to spend time securing the best merchants and offers. A savings card with great offers from popular merchants will make the card a lot easier to sell and more profitable.
[Back to Top]

How easy is it to secure businesses?
It's easier than you think! Businesses like to participate in them because it's free advertising and it helps them increase sales. It also gives them a chance to support the community. We provide a script on what to say to businesses, and provide a list of offers merchants can easily choose from.

[Back to Top]

How do we get the merchants' logos on the back of the card?
We are phasing out logos on the back of cards and starting to print text only. We are making this change because of the difficulty in getting high res logos for many merchants.
[Back to Top]
