Hi all!!

Instead of using the Kidstuff Coupon Books, our school has discovered a "Value Card". It is just like a credit card and is good for the entire year. You can get the same discount from the same place every single day if you chose to do so. Very affordable, at $10, with your organization getting 60% profit.

It works like this; you can pre-order a certain amount or you can use order forms. Most programs have a minimum, like 400 cards. The credit card will have 27 businesses on the card. You choose the businesses, submit them to the program and they do all the leg work in obtaining a deal with those businesses so that they can place them on your card. If you have a decent size school, you could make a nice profit on this sale. We plan to get them early in the school year and have them available all year round. Though there are many businesses in the discount book, once you use the coupon, that is it. With this card, you can use it over and over again. The most important thing is to select the right businesses for your school. Check out this site, and then click on the Fundraising Division link at the top of the page.

In previous years we have just sent home the flyers and waited for orders. Kids Stuff has asked us to try sending them home. We are going to give it a shot and see how we do. We are just starting out with the K and 1st grades. Hopefully we will get most of them back or sell them.

I just agreed to do it again this year. It's one of our biggest fundraisers. Web: Toll Free # is 1-888-404-5437 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Their reps are very helpful. It's a great company to work with.

Does anyone have any feedback on Dine and Discounts?

They are an on-line coupon site with differing amounts of offers depending on the part of the country you live. Groups sell subscriptions to the site.

The claim is unlimited use for the user- no upfront costs or costs for unsold subscriptions and here is the kicker- 80% return. We keep $20.00 on a $25.00 sale.

I came across the Ohio area and the New England area.

Interested if anyone has worked with them? - had success? Feedback?

we sent them home one year but it was a lot of work, past 3 years we had them available at back to school night and flyers went home and parents would fill out the form on the flyer ordering them and the orders and payments were sent to me, then i sent the books back into school with my daughter in a plastic bag (provided by kids stuff books) with the flyer attached (stapled) to the bag and they were delivered to the student and the student brought them home; we made $12.50 on each book -- we had 48 books to start with and i think i returned about 11 books so we made about $462.50 for what we sold; much easier than sending them home and trying to get them back and figure out who bought and who didn't return, no hunting them down to get the books back.
