National Co-op Connections Day is October 5
Get involved and save big when you use your
Co-op Connections® Card.
October is National Cooperative Month, and Valley Rural Electric Cooperative is excited to celebrate the cooperative difference by offering its member-owners even more savings. National Co-op Connections Day will be held Friday, October 5, 2018 and is sponsored by Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives. This year, members can "Go Beyond the Card" to save in their communities, while on the go and online.
Valley invites program participants to use the "Power of Three" to save money on the third annual National Co-op Connections Day. Cooperative employees and consumers can use the card, website, or app to find deals and coupons at national and local retailers.
To add even more excitement, Touchstone Energy is bringing back the #ImConnected social media photo contest. Members are eligible to win prizes when they share (using the hashtag #ImConnected) a photo on Facebook that features them using any of the three ways to save on or before Sunday, October 7.
"We are glad to offer the Co-op Connections Card to our members," explains John Bookwalter, Jr., Valley's contact for the discount card program. "Since our launch of the program in September 2011, our consumers have saved more than $78,000 on 3,672 prescriptions, with an average discount of 48% per prescription. Special offers at community businesses help our members save even more while supporting the local economy."
Valley REC encourages all of its member-owners to get involved and visit their favorite participating businesses on October 5 and throughout the year.
