Cleveland Park Discount Coupon Message Program
Discount Coupons for Cleveland Park Listserv Members

This program has been replaced by our experimental commercial advertising program.

 

We're trying an experiment that we hope will benefit neighborhood merchants and residents.

Neighborhood restaurants and merchants with a storefront and who are in the Cleveland Park Listserv's boundaries may post messages to the listserv that advertise discounts and specials. 

These messages must be low-key, brief, properly formatted (spelling, punctuation, grammar -- they all matter!), and must otherwise conform to the list's rules.   They must include a specific discount of at least 10 percent, but can be limited in other ways, such as "August 30th only" or "all Tuesdays in October."  Your message must include the notice that describes the Cleveland Park Discount Coupon Message Program (below).  The subject line must be of the form: "Discount at Xyz" or "Discount at Xyz on February 21."  (We want to keep the subject lines uniform, and low-key, too.)

You can post a discount coupon message no more than once every 3 months. 

Classes, courses, and personal services are excluded.  The same discount must not also appear in print media or in other public forums. 

This program is available only to merchants and restaurants with retail storefronts. 

If your message isn't properly formatted, has too much hype, isn't an actual discount from regular pricing, or has other problems we'll delete it.  We haven't set a cap on the total number of these discount coupon messages that can be posted, but if too many are sent to the listserv, we'll hit the delete button, too.  Remember -- the Cleveland Park Listserv is primarily a discussion list.  And this is an experiment!

As always, we encourage you to look at the list's FAQ for more information about how the Cleveland Park Listerv works.

Here's a sample message, to give you a better idea of how to write your post for this experimental program:

Subject: Discount at Joe's Diner
