Deadline: August 8, 2008 E.S.T.
- How many raffle tickets do I get? You get one ticket for signing up to participate. You can get a bonus ticket if you offer to help us with this great promotion. We need lots of volunteers to make this promotion a success!
- What’s this birthday bash? Hello EFA, are you ready for the largest promotion ever offered through our team? Our First Birthday Party!! Celebrate the EFA team store’s first birthday by accepting an EFA coupon from September 15-30. When the coupon is redeemed you provide a 20% (or more) discount to your customer.
So, you don’t have to jump thru hoops, or walk on lit candles…no, we wouldn’t do that to you…it’s very easy…..just provide a 20% (or more) discount to your customers who redeem the EFA coupon.
We are looking for at least 50% participation, and who knows it can me much larger!! All EFAer’s coming together for our first annual celebration of the EFA Team Store! How cool is that!
Imagine, our customers being able to use coupons in 250 or more shops and receive huge discounts off their products. The benefits are very obvious: the EFA shop will generate more business and so will we, the members! The best benefit of all is that the animals will truly benefit from more donations. The busier we are, the more we can help benefit the animal charities.
It’s a win – win situation for all!
- How will the coupon work? The coupon will be good for at least 20% off the entire purchase at any participating EFA member store. Only one coupon per store per customer but the coupon may be used by the same customer in as many stores as the customer desires. The coupon does not applying to shipping charges.
If you do not want some of your items on sale during the coupon redemption period (Sept 15 - 30), you may de-list those items during that time. However, all items listed in the shop must be eligible for the coupon.
The coupon will be posted on the EFA Blog so that customers may download the coupon. In addition, each participating EFA member will be assigned a coupon code (for tracking purposes). This code will be included on all coupons the particular store distributes. So, provide your customers, friends, and families with your coupons!
Although each store will be assigned a coupon code, that particular coupon code may be redeemed at any participating EFA member store.
The EFA store will also be handing out EFA coupons as well!
The coupon will instruct the customer to include the coupon code in Note to Seller. The customer then has the option of paying and being refunded the 20% or may wait for a revised invoice.
- How is the birthday party being promoted?
Prizes: There will also be exciting prizes for those customers who use the coupons (no purchase necessary) and great prizes to the shops that generate the most redeemed coupons…fun…fun…fun…!!
