  1. WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO RUN A FUNDRAISER?
    • Short & Sweet! We recommend a 2-3 week selling window.
    • The more sales people you involve, the more you will sell! Get as many students/staff/team members/group members involved and excited about the sale. Get the promotional flyers into their hands and also encourage them to learn about the Entertainment® Membership. You can either print the page that explains how the membership works or send an email with a link to the page.
  2. HOW DO I EXPLAIN THE ENTERTAINMENT® COUPON MEMBERSHIP TO SOMEONE WHO’S NEVER HEARD OF IT?

  3. WHAT IS A GOOD WAY TO SELL THE ENTERTAINMENT® MEMBERSHIP?
    • First, activate one of your free trial membership cards and check all the savings around you.

    • Have your sellers or their parents purchase a membership. Then when they are selling them, they can show potential buyers all the savings on the Entertainment app.
  4. WHEN ARE COUPONS VALID?
    • The coupon membership is valid for 12 months from the date of activation.
    • Check the site or mobile app for individual coupon expiration.
