Question:  My son or daughter needs to raise money for a school trip. Can they use your programs?

Answer:  Yes, anybody can use our fundraiser to make money for their cause.  Our fund raising programs are particularly suited for charitable and/or non-profit organizations, churches, youth groups and schools.

Keep in mind you do not have to be a charity or non profit to sell items for a profit. Any cause may use this technique to raise money, non profit status is not necessary.

Answer:  There is no charge for 150, 300, 600 or 1000 cards up front, also standard Shipping charges are free in the continental US.

Question:  We are not a school or known organization, do we have to pay any money upfront?

Answer:  All other organizations must pay a $50 refundable deposit upon approval for 150 cards. Once you have sold those we will ship another 150 cards without deposit and so on. Or you may purchase wholesale cards.

Question:  How long should I run a card sale?

Answer:   It really depends upon the type of group. For a full school we suggest around 30 days.  If you run the sale too long, everyone begins to lose interest.  It’s best to put a time limit on sales. Although there are exceptions such as a sports teams or any group with a clear goal.

For instance the band needs new instruments, the members will stay focused for months or until the goal is reached.

 


Question: Do you have select products already available?

Answer:  Yes, our web site is loaded with products.
 


Question:  Are there any hidden costs?

Answer:  There are no hidden costs.  Our standard design services are free and printing materials are free up front, even shipping is free.

 


Question:  Will the cards be good around the whole city, county or country?

Answer:  The cards are good anywhere you can reach the internet... USA, Ireland, UK, Canada, Australia and Puerto Rico.
Our suppliers will ship our "Free $tuff" to any of these locations.


Question:  How will I know if I will like the products on the cards or booklets

Answer:  Perhaps the best way to see the type of products you can expect, would be by browsing our typical fundraiser located at: Current Products, (MySchool) is a mock version of a school fundraiser landing page.
If you like what you see there you should be pleased with your cards.

 


Question:  Will we get to see the card before going to print?

Answer:  Yes, if requested you will be given the opportunity to PROOF your card, this gives you the chance to check spelling, grammar, and to make sure addresses and other information are correct. We don't proof or spell check.

Question:  What is the next step?

Answer:  Download the info packet complete the application in the packet and fax or mail the required pages.


Question:  When do I send money to SchoolCouponBook.com and how much do I send?  Do I mail in the entire amount?

Answer:  With most fundraisers through SchoolCouponBook.com, we invoice you each 30 days for immediate payment. 
You keep your profit up front and send us the difference. This means that in most cases you have your profit long before the payment is due.

For instance, your first 30 days you sell 500 cards collect the money, you keep your agreed amount and mail the wholesale cost to us.


Question:  Do your cards sometimes sell out, can I reserve them ahead of time?  I have a large school and need many cards.

Answer:  No.  All cards are custom printed for your fundraiser.
Visit our website Sample Cards to see the latest designs and to get started ordering in advance.  Once you’ve decided on a design, just complete the info-pack order form. For immediate service print the order form and fax or mail it (or scan and email).


Question: Is there a minimum order?

Answer:  Yes, our normal monthly minimum order is 50 cards per 150 ordered allowing you time to sell cards before actually paying for them. You can order 150, 300, 600 or 1000 cards without charge.
See info-pack for details.
 


Question:  I have a really large group.  Can I get 3000 cards?

Answer:  Yes and No! Our maximum starting amount is 1000 cards, although if you need more then that
you could wait until the original 1000 cards are almost gone and reorder an additional 1000 cards as many times as needed.

Or for each additional 1000 cards a refundable deposit of $50 is required (in this case $100 deposit).


Question:  Can the unsold cards be returned?

Answer:  Yes! Unsold cards, minus your minimum quota may be returned. After your fundraiser sale or every 30 days until your fundraiser ends your order invoice minimum is 50 cards per 150 ordered.
Wholesale cards may not be returned.
 


Question:  How much profit can a group make?

Answer:  FREE $TUFF Card sales are a great fundraiser for groups of all sizes! Figuring very conservatively, on a 500 card sale: Your cost $.50 per card with a sale price of $2 your group would earn $750   With a motivated group, the potential is much greater!  I have seen 500 cards sold in just a few days. You also earn in other ways. See the info pack

 


Question:  What if I want delivery before a major holiday?

Answer:  It’s important to keep your timeframe in mind when planning your sale.  Call immediately if you want delivery before a major holiday. SchoolCouponBook.com can usually have your printed materials completed and delivered within 10 - 15 days (additional shipping may be required).

Shipping Policies
 
Free Shipping Policy.   All of our fundraising products include standard shipping free to our customers in the continental United States.   Most products are shipped via USPS or UPS ground service and can be easily tracked when necessary. 

Why Free Shipping?   We include shipping charges for two reasons.  First, our goal is to make fundraising as easy as possible.  Dealing with confusing or hidden shipping or handling charges can be frustrating.  Second, by including the shipping charges, you know "up-front" exactly what your cost and profit will be.  This means you don't have to waste time reading tables and the fine print to determine any added charges and what your "real profit" will be. 

Shipping Time.   All products are shipped very fast.   Normal delivery time for direct-sale printed products is around 15 business days.  Our staff will be able to answer any questions you have regarding your shipping time.

Air Delivery.   If you need to arrange for air shipment of printed products, check with our fundraising consultant (1- 234 - FUND-SCB) to see if this can be arranged.  Your group would be responsible for the extra expense of air delivery up front.
