Wheatland Adds New Local Connections Card Deals
Now Even More Ways to Save
Wheatland Electric has added 14 new local deals to its Coop Connections Card program. The new deals include great savings at places like The Taylor House, Pizza Hut and Gifts Etc. in Scott City and Papa Murphy’s, High Call Outfitters and Great Bend Coffee in Great Bend. The discounts range from discounted pizza to half-price drinks and more! “I think it’s a great program and we’re excited to be a part of it,” said Lisa Crist, owner of Gifts Etc. in Scott City. “We’re always looking for ways to generate buzz and get people excited about shopping with us. With this program, we get to offer our customers a great discount and Wheatland promotes it for us. It really is a win-win.” At Gifts Etc., Wheatland members can get $5 off a Trapp Candle as a part of the local Connections Card program. Simply show your card and save. It’s that easy!
Wheatland launched its Coop Connections Card program in partnership with Touchstone Energy back in October of 2012, by mailing a card inserted in Kansas Country Living to every member. “The program is a money-saving tool we’re proud to offer our membership,” said Bruce Mueller, general manager of Wheatland Electric. “We’re always looking for ways to provide value to our members and our community. This card connects you with national discounts on everything from hotel stays to prescription drugs. We have some great local deals too, like a buy one get one free Orange Julius at Dairy Queen in Scott City, and many more.”
The program features a member discount card that is accepted by a number of merchants throughout our service territory that offer local deals. To access the discount members need only show their card and ask for the featured deal. In addition to the local deals, through its partnership with Touchstone Energy, Wheatland is able to offer our members access to a number of national deals as well. National deals include discounts on office supplies, car rentals, health services and much much more. A website highlighting all of the deals both national and local is a key part of the program. Shawn Powelson, Manager of Member Services and Corporate Communications says, “The website is a great tool. Members just have to log on to connections.coop and enter their zip code, select Wheatland Electric and they can start finding all of the great deals!” In addition to featuring all of the local and national deals the website also offers access to the Cashback Mall, an online shopping site that gives shoppers cashback for shopping through the site and a coupons and rebate finder section.
Local businesses can participate in the program free of charge. Wheatland will list their deal on the website, provide the business with signage and even promote their participation through our website, Facebook page and other member communications. “We’re out there adding deals and talking to businesses as often as we can,” says Powelson. “But businesses don’t have to wait for us to come to them, they can sign-up anytime they want. Just give us a call or stop by one of our local offices and we’ll be glad to talk to them about getting started with the program.”
Members who may have missed the card in the mail or never received one are encouraged to stop by any local Wheatland Electric office to pick one up.
