What Are Discount Cards?
Super Discount Cards are the same size and thickness as a typical credit card. Unlike some discount promotions that give the customer a one-time use coupon book that they normally leave at home, or a label to peel off the card, or a hole to punch in a card, our Super Discount Card offers continuous savings from area vendors for up to a year. Include popular vendors close to the high school and you will not only have a card to sell to adults, but students as well.
By retailing the card at the low price of $5 (some sell theirs for as high as $10), it is really easy for the customer to justify the savings. For example, if one vendor on the card offers $3 off an oil change and you change the oil in your car twice a year –the savings from that one vendor have more than offset the price of the card.
If you want to solicit the ads for the card for your group, you can turn that into a profit center. You can charge vendors to be on the card. And you can charge the group more for the cards. Some companies that solicit the ads sell the cards to the group for $5. If you do that with our cards, you can make a really high amount per card placed.
What to say to the group if you want them to solicit their ads from their own vendors:
Unlike some companies, who want to charge you twice our price to come in and solicit the ads for you, we want to give the group maximum profit. For that reason, plus the fact that the local groups know where everyone in town goes for oil changes, flowers, and pizza, we price our card to more than make it worth your while to contact local vendors.
Here is another reason we like to see you recruit your vendors . . . most of them will stay with you from year to year because this is a good deal for them too. That means that most of your setup work is done the first year. Next year, you call the vendors on the card and ask if they want to change their ad for the following year. Some communities actually form waiting lists of vendors to get on the card.
