    Here is how you can make $10,000 cash off 250 bucks investment

    Find 10 to 12 businesses within two mile of a school or church!

    Explain to the business owner you are going to do a fundraiser for the community for local schools and churches and you will get local customers in the community to come to your business more often, this is free advertising for the business owner all you have to do is honor the discount for 1 full year. Make the offer real good so they will come back more often. Example $5.00 off next oil change, 50% off you sandwich when you show this card. Get an contract signed from the owner. Once you have 12 business owners go to the next step.

    Get a printing company to print 1000 cards size of a credit card, with all the 10 to 12 businesses with there name and discount there offering you should be able to put 12 and put the expiration date in each square or on the card.

    Go talk to the principal and pastor of the church and explain i have a these discounts cards printed and have local businesses willing to offer people discounts during these tough times.

    There is no cost for you, all you have to do is sell these cards for $20.00 and you keep 10.00 and you give me 10.00 for my printing costs, my employee wages things like that. If you give these cards to the soccer team, football team, band, volleyball team, they can use this money to buy equipment, pay for trips and what ever they need the money for. Get the principal or pastor to sign an agreement, saying i have given you 1,000 community discount cards and you will be able to raise 20,000 dollars and half goes to me and you keep half.

    Put community discount card and show all the business owners what it looks like, also put a 20$ on the card so when they sell it, people who buy will know thats what they should charge.

    Students should be able to sell these like hot cakes to neighbors, parents to other people in the community.

    Its a win for the business owners, Win for the customer who buys it, win for the school and church, win for your walllet

    People in my area do that...
    but they put together a thick booklet
    of coupons... with different discounts
    100s of businesses...
    schools sell the booklet for $14.99

    To get in on this... you are competing with that booklet.
    It's tough to sell 10-12 discounts for $20.
    It's tough even selling the booklet.
    My nephew is in football... and they were doing this.

    Well the community card is different you get valid discounts for a year, it should be a great seller at churches, people will donate money for the card and also get something of value also. So giving 20$ should not be a big deal if they know the church will benefit, also they will benefit and the business owners will benefit, that's why the deal has to be real good so people will see the value of this. People will spend 7.00 at McDonald's for lunch, so if you have couple good eating places with discount for a year why not, its not a bad deal.

    this is actually harder then it seems, first like virus says you are competing with an already established lil company that booklet coupon I am sure is in every school district. I remeber this from being back in school.

    but in theory should work, I just know from experience in theory aint always real life.

    Why is this card different.... the coupon book also is long term.

    and now that you bring it up... getting a business to commit for a whole year is tough.
    I have had brick and mortar businesses.... I would not commit to running a special for a whole year. It's insane. So many things can change in a year.
    your costs on what you have on special can go up... way up.


    but anyways...

    GOOD LUCK.

    You guys are missing the point, yeah people are doing coupon books so what, who carries a book with them every where u go no one. You can fit this in your wallet and the card comes in handy when you are shopping at local businesses in the area. Churches are looking for fund raising dollars so are schools kids and not going to have car wash every weekend to raise money, just a simple solution to raise money. Businesses will offer discounts why do business use groupon to offer 50% discount and pay groupon 50 of there profit so in regards to that they are no getting repeat customers.

    IMO it's too hard to sell those discount cards in large quantities.
