Coupon Book Fundraiser

The 2016-2017 Go Play Save Coupon Book Fundraiser will kick off on Tuesday, July 26th and run through September 8th.   Just like last year, the books sell for $30 each.  If our band sells at least 300 books, you will earn a $10 band account credit for each book you sell.  Our ADHS Band general fund will make $5 per book sold.  For every 5 books that you sell, you will earn one free book.  The books are full of wonderful money saving coupons to places like Moe's, Dick's, Mellow Mushroom, Kroger, Great Wolf Lodge, Lochmere Golf Course, and Carolina Hurricanes.  You can also buy coupon books for Chapel Hill/Durham, Greensboro/Triad region or Charlotte.  Because of the many coupons offered in the books, they sell very easily.  However, many local schools and businesses also participate in this fundraiser so be sure to get a jump start on sales to your family and friends.  For more details, see the attached document.
This Tuesday (July 26) we will have a display set up at the BAND PARENT BOOSTER FAIR where you can stop by to learn more information.  Please plan to pick up your student's fundraiser packet at that time.  For those parents who can't make it to the Booster Fair, we will hand out the rest of the fundraiser packets to students at the conclusion of precamp on Thursday night (July 28).  We ask that each family please sell at least one book.
During the sale, we will be available after practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the band hallway, to pass out more coupon books and collect money.  All checks must be made out to ADHS Band Boosters with your child's name on the memo line.  Any books that are unsold at the end of the sale should be turned in to us in new condition or your band account will be charged.
Go Play Save also offers a mobile option.  Instead of buying the traditional paper book, you can choose the option of buying a mobile book.  This is a mobile website (not a mobile app) which you purchase access to for your smart phone.  If you buy this option you can browse for local merchants in your area, and access and redeem the coupons directly from your phone.  This is a great choice for those of us who often leave our coupon books at home.  With the mobile book you can be out shopping and browse for local stores or restaurants who may offer a coupon you can redeem.  The mobile book also allows merchants to join Go Play Save throughout the year.  In order to purchase a mobile book, direct your customers to go to:  http://www.goplaysavetriangle.com/store/ADHSB2017
On that website, they can purchase a mobile book and the credit will go towards our band.  It is very important that you direct your family and friends to put your student information in when ordering so that you can get credit towards your band account.  In order to make this easier, you can create your own personal URL so that all sales will automatically be directed towards your student's band account.  Please note that the mobile option is independent of the traditional book and therefore will vary slightly from the printed book (some merchants added throughout the year while some merchants are omitted).
Your student does not need to be a member of the marching band in order to participate in this fundraiser.  If your child is in a class band and you would like to participate, please email us at couponbooks@athensdriveband.com and we will get a packet to you.  
One last item to mention...the top seller will receive a $50 gift card to any of the participating merchants. The first three members to sell 10 books will receive a $10 gift card to either Moes,Mellow Mushroom, or CharGrill.  
Thank you for supporting our band program through this fundraiser.

Happy selling!
