    Easy way to help raise funds...

    It does not get any easier then this.

    You can help the AZOHVC raise funds for the lobbyist and to fight to keep our trails without spending more then $5.00 over what you are spending now.

    You can go to Fry's food store, get a gift card, tell them what account it can go to and for every dollar you spend quarterly the AZOHVC will get a donation from Fry's. You are already spending the money to buy the groceries you need, and now it helps us too so we can fight harder for your rights!!!

    Check out the details at www.azohvc.org

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bump, I like the idea Frys it is awsome and 10 cents off gas also when you shop there.
    Do I still use my phone number??
    Or I only use your account?
    The dates used in the Frys add are a little off... more like a year off.

    Yes their dates are a little off, but from what they say nothing had changed since those days and that is one we don't have control over.

    Sorry for the confusion, an excellent question in deed. This is not in place of the card you use to get your discounts, those are free. This is a Gift Card, one you can load and give to someone or use yourself. You have to purchase the card, load it with funds like a prepaid credit card. Then when you go to the store you use your frequent shopper card (discount card which still tracks your points and gives you gas discounts), then when it comes time to pay you use the Gift Card. Both parties win.

    From what I was told the $5 fee is a one time fee to activate the card and you can add money to it with no additional costs. If I read it right you can put up to $500 on the gift card. Then as you spend it comes off the card, and you can reload it time and time again up to the $500 limit.

    Let me know if this does not make sense and I will try to get a better clarification.

    This is a great idea. I'll let the wife know. We shop almost exclusively at Fry's already.

    Yep, it is so easy to just take the food budget money and put it on the card when we get paid, then use it when we shop there. I am thinking of using it for our gas too since we buy most of our gas there too!!!

    Using it for gas is a great idea as well since that's one of the larger expenses most people have... particularly with gas prices the way they are these days. So they don't have exclusions on the gift cards that disallow gas? With the (supposed) tight margins on fuel I'm surprised.

    Iwill be going over there in a bit, and I will ask. From what I was told our percentage is based on the amount added to the card, not on what it was spent on.

    Re: Easy way to help raise funds...

    Just wanted to follow up, I have talked to the manager, you can use the Fry's gift card to pay for the gas too. It is like using a debit card, the money has already been put on the card, Fry's does not care what you spend it on.

    So you use your rewards card to get the points or claim the gas discount, then use the gift card to pay and everyone wins!!!!
