Extreme Discount Carding

October 18, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 183

I suppose you have probably heard about this "Extreme Couponing" fad that the TV seems to think is so cool. Well, we have coined a new term: "Extreme Discount Carding."

Before you ask, yes we do realize that this term hasn't caught on with anyone outside of the office yet. But has that stopped our dreams of getting our own television show on basic cable? Well, a little.

I'll be honest, extreme couponing is pretty cool. In this economy, who can afford NOT to find ways to save money? The only problem with coupons is that they seem to only benefit one party: the consumer.

And that's great and all, but "extreme discount carding" (come on, TLC, it's catchy!) benefits everyone. If you are not familiar with discount cards, they are credit card sized plastic cards that generally have a fundraising organizations logo on the front and discounts to several local businesses on the back that are reusable every day for a year.

These cards benefit fundraising groups because it allows them to raise money for their organization by selling the cards to people in the community. Those people in the community benefit, similar to coupons, by saving money at places that they already shop. And the places that they shop benefit by driving more customers into their business.

The other benefit that these cards have over coupons is that they are reusable every single day for an entire year. Coupons usually save you twenty-five cents and then you have to leave the paper coupon with the cashier.

Not only can discount cards be redeemed once per day at each of the participating businesses for an entire year, they generally offer much more generous deals than standard coupons. Deals on discount cards often include free oil changes, free entrees, and up to 80% savings. Now that's extreme!

If you are an organization, discount cards might be just what you are missing to add an easy and quick way to raise money for your cause. If you are a consumer, you may want to purchase one of these very affordable, and highly beneficial fundraising cards from a fundraising group in your community. Businesses should also jump at the chance to get free advertising and bring in more customers to their store.

"Extreme Discount Carding", coming soon to television programming near you. Ok, that may be a stretch, but I am almost certain that there is a fundraising group near you that could benefit from these great discount cards (that are extreme)!
