Fundraising 101

Local Savings has been helping local schools, groups, sports teams, churches, and non-profit organizations in Tupelo and surrounding areas raise money with our coupon books since 2012!  Since 2020, so many things have changed, so we've had to adapt and change, at least for the time being, to stay competitive and profitable during these challenging times.

Because of Covid19, and now the new variants, we are putting our traditional coupon books on hold for now. Instead of our traditional paper coupon book, we are offering our digital coupon book (thru our mobile app) AND our new coupon card as alternative fundraisers. Both of these fundraising products are also available through our Virtual Fundraising Portal if your group prefers an online, contactless fundraiser. You can also add a virtual fundraiser link to your traditional in-person fundraiser to make it easy for anyone, anywhere to support your fundraiser!

Local Savings digital coupon books and coupon cards are both a fantastic ways to raise funds for any type of fundraiser! Local Savings provides a much easier way to raise money than any of the traditional fundraisers currently on the market because you'll be selling a product that people actually want to buy since everyone loves saving money and supporting local businessesWith Local Savings coupons, you can do both!  Since all of  our coupons are from locally owned businesses, every time you use a Local Savings coupon, you are supporting a local business! 

DIGITAL COUPON BOOKS
Why sell a product that can be found elsewhere at a much cheaper price?  Why not give your supporters something that can actually save them money insteadThe $20 spent on our digital coupon book can easily be recouped after using just one or two coupons!  Because our digital coupon books are valid for one full year, your supporters will have plenty of time to save potentially hundreds of dollars, if not more!

It's FREE to download our app to preview all of the coupons currently available, but users will need to activate the coupons with an activation code to redeem them. Our fundraising groups sell the activation codes. 

Our one year activation codes sell for only $20 and our fundraisers earn 50% of all sales with no minimums to meet! *We can also provide activation codes that are valid for 6 months for just $10, if your group prefers that price point.
    Below is a photo of our activation code cards for our digital coupon books. Once activated, the coupons are redeemed when the user presses the redeem button on a particular coupon and then shows their phone with the redeemed coupon screen to the cashier. Currently, there are over 600 coupons to choose from and we're always adding more throughout the year. Any new coupons added can be redeemed by anyone with an active activation code.
    There will be a unique 16-digit activation code printed on each card.

    The cards can be distributed on a consignment basis, so there is no up-front cost. This is a completely risk-free fundraiser!  The more you sell the more you earn, and what you don't sell, you can return!  You can have the money you need in just 2-3 weeks!

Your fundraiser will get credit for all sales made through that link. At the end of your fundraiser, we will send out a check for 50% of all sales made thru your unique fundraising link.

    Our new Local Savings coupon cards will be available in August of 2021 and valid thru 08/31/2022. These cards will sell for $20 and fundraisers earn 50% on all sales with no minimums to meet. These cards will be the size of a credit card with unlimited-use coupon offers. We plan to have more coupon offers than we can fit on the small cards, so our cards will be printed with a QR code that can be scanned that will take you our website to a list of all of the participating local businesses and their coupon offers available for our cardholders.  New coupon offers will be added to the list throughout the year! 

    Cardholders will simply show the card to the cashier at any of the participating businesses to receive the discount.
