Pro series, single tag, triple tag, self-serve, pizza cards, pocket passes, sports passes – there are so many products to choose from. How do you know which is best for your group?
Let us help you decide…
The pro series discount card is the standard fundraising card that you have probably seen other groups use in the past. These cards include 20 great local and national discounts that any person would love to have. They sell to your customers for just $10 each. It’s easy to show someone the value of investing $10 to save money at places they already shop every single day for an entire year. In fact, they could make their money back on the first day. The investment for your group on the pro series card is minimal and these cards are ideal for smaller groups.
The single and triple tag discount cards are pretty similar other than – get this – one has a single keytag and the other has 3. So what’s a keytag? These fundraising cards include the same great card as the pro series, but with additional, smaller cards that can be attached to a keychain. These deals can also be used daily for an entire year and are generally exceptional offers.
These fundraising cards sell for $20 to your customers and require a little bit more of an investment than the pro series – but your ROI is also higher. In our 20 years of fundraising experience, we’ve also seen the addition of keytags makes the sell an easier one, even at the higher price. Your community will get to save a ton of money over the year and at the same time they’ll be able to support a local group for a good cause. It’s truly a win/win fundraiser. These are great cards for medium and large sized groups.
The pizza fundraising cards are also a popular fundraiser. These work as a great fundraiser on their own, or as an additional fundraising opportunity for your group along with the discount cards. The pizza cards are available for Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Little Caesars and Dominos. When a customer buys a pizza card, they immediately get a one-time use free large pizza offer with no additional purchase necessary. Immediately after buying your card, the customer can go into their local Papa Johns and get a free pizza to make back their investment right away. Additionally, the card includes a buy one get one free offer that is reusable daily for an entire year. If you like pizza, just think of the money you can save! These cards are a very fun, easy sell for groups that makes for a great fundraising opportunity.
The pocket pass product is very similar in that we secure the discounts to great places in your location. The difference is that the pocket pass folds up and includes full-color, high quality laminated perforated tickets. Owners of these fundraising cards will be able to tear off the individual discounts and turn them in for great savings.
Lastly, the all sports passes are another amazing fundraising opportunity offered by EMI. These are much different than the discount cards, but can be used to supplement them as another way to raise money for your group. Many schools love to use the sports passes as a great way to not only raise money, but also to control gate admission for sporting events. Again, these cards are custom designed and can be numbered and/or bar-coded. You can sell these passes for any sporting event and we also offer conference passes.
For the sports passes, we offer versions for students, adults or an all-family sports pass. We do offer keytag versions of these cards as well. These cards raise money, save time at the admission gate, and the barcoded scanning option stops passes from being used multiple times for a single sporting event.
The self-serve cards can be applied to any of these products. If you choose self-serve, you will be responsible for securing all of the discounts and just leaving the design and printing up to us. This can save you a little bit of money on your initial investment, but with 20 years of experience, we have built relationships with many local shops and franchises to be able to secure exceptional offers for your cards.
