TULSA, Okla. – The deadline for Tulsa merchants to participate in Family & Children’s Services Care Card is July 31.
Care Card, which shoppers can buy online or in stores, gives cardholders up to 20 percent off at participating retailers. The promotion runs from Oct. 30 to Nov. 8. Customers can buy the cards in stores during that time, but online sales end Oct. 16.
“It is a win-win,” said F&CS Development Director Susan McCalman. “Twenty-percent off for ten days, and it drives customers to stores they’ve never been to before. And most of all, it helps Family & Children’s Services continue to help the one in six Tulsans we serve every year.”
Care Card has raised more than $1 million for F&CS’ life-changing programs since its inception in 1999. Merchants can register at http://www.fcsok.org/CareCard/Agreement.
With no upfront cost, Care Card benefits merchants by listing them in a shopping directory more than 2,000 shoppers receive. Merchants also get web and social media exposure, as well as advertising in the Tulsa World and TulsaPeople listing all the participants.
The benefits don’t stop there. In addition to new customers, Care Card merchants also help keep shoppers’ money local.
“Care Card is a win-win situation,” said Rebecca Joskey, owner of Urban Furnishings, 2312 E. Admiral Blvd. “I’m so happy to co-brand with Family and Children’s Services.”
Merchants already participating include Bruce G. Weber, Hicks Brunson Eyewear, Muse Intimates, On a Whim, The Silver Needle, SR Hughes, Mary Murray’s Flowers, Island Nation, John Daniel Footwear and Susan Sadler Fine Jewelry Design
Care Card is presented by sponsor Don Thornton Automotive.
