Your Co-op Connections card: One more benefit of co-op membership!
Roanoke Electric is always looking for ways to increase the benefits of being a member-owner of our co-op and a member of the diverse communities we serve. The Co-op Connections Card is a national discount card program that has long been free to Roanoke Electric member-owners. In 2018, the program offers more discounts and ways to save than ever before. It offers up to 85% percent discounts on prescription drugs at participating pharmacies, as well as special discounts and deals from local businesses, online retailers, hotel discounts, event ticket discounts and more. And for the first time ever starting this year, a “cash back” program that delivers to you by personal check the money you’ve saved in discounts while shopping online!
Since Co-op Connections now offers cashback rewards directly to you, Roanoke Electric has ended the “Roanoke Rewards” program. While the co-op is proud of the money Roanoke Rewards saved member-owners, the program structure limited us to returning your savings earned through RR shopping only in the form of credits on your electric bill. Now, by shopping online through the enhanced Co-op Connections Card program, you get your savings back in the form of a cash check — something the RR program could not offer. So in addition to giving you more options (including those in Roanoke Rewards) on where to shop online than the RR program could offer, the Co-op Connections Card program lets YOU decide where and how you will use the money you saved. We were thrilled to provide the RR program to our member-owners, but now it is clear that the savings, the shopping options and the freedom of choice on how to spend your shopping discount earnings all much greater – and a much better deal for you – through the Co-op Connections Card program!
The Co-op Connections Card is not insurance, and cannot be used in conjunction with insurance, but it can help you get a great price on prescriptions that are not covered by your insurance. Also, the pharmacy can help you determine if the prescription price is lower with your insurance or with the card. Watch this video for more on the pharmacy discounts.
Cash Back Shopping at 3,000 Retailers
With almost 3,000 online retailers participating in the Co-op Connections Cash Back Mall, earning real money back while you shop has never been easier. Your savings are deposited into your secure “virtual wallet.” After 90-days (to allow time to return any items you may decide you no longer need or want), a check for the discounts earned to date is mailed directly to you!
Participating Local Businesses
For your convenience, here is a list of merchants (PDF) in Roanoke Electric’s service territory (and a few outside of the area as well!) that have joined the Co-op Connections Card Program (so far) and who offer discounts when you use your card. This list DOES NOT include all the discounts offered by national chains, pharmacies and other national merchants.
For local businesses not yet participating in the Co-op Connections Card Program, please call Patrice Jordan at (252) 209-2236 to learn more about the benefits to your business of joining the program. Ready to enroll your business now? You can do so anytime by completing this online form.
There’s an App for That!
For member-owners who prefer to use their card digitally on their smartphone, the Co-op Connections Card app download is on the Co-op Connections website. When you’re ready to create your online account, simply visit the site and register your card number and enter your secured, password-protected information. Once registered, you can then download the mobile app for either iOs or Android directly from the Co-op Connections website.
The mobile app provides a digital card (front and back) with vital prescription discount information on your phone, as well as a way to get your discount with participating local merchants without having to remember to carry your membership card. You can also use your phone’s GPS feature to locate local businesses that accept the card if any are nearby, and identify your favorite discount deals and save them in your account for easy access.
Did we mention that the card is FREE? We make sure we provide each new member-owner with their Co-op Connections card on the cover wrap of their first issue of Carolina Country magazine (also free!) where we welcome them to the co-op, but if you need another just let us know! We’re happy to send you a replacement anytime, or you can pick one up the next time you come by our Ahoskie office. But no need to wait, download the mobile app for your digital card or if you prefer to have one to keep in your wallet, call (252) 209-2236 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for your FREE card today!
