BOOSTER DISCOUNT CARDS
EARN OVER $36K*
You’re a parent involved in your child’s life. Your looking for a way to help raise money for one of their activities. A Booster Discount Cards is the way to go. Whether your raising money for a sports team, school, scouts, or a civic organization the Booster Discount Card is the solution.

HOW IT WORKS: Local businesses provide discounts that are printed on the card. Your booster organization determines what to sell the card for and the expiration date of the card (Business owners will be wary of a never ending discount). The booster organization then mobilizes itself as a sales force.

The customers purchasing the discount cards win by supporting the kids while receiving valuable discounts at local businesses. The local business owners win by increasing their customer base.
