GoPlaySave Coupon Book Sale Kick Off

posted Jul 18, 2017, 8:55 AM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Jul 18, 2017, 1:45 PM ]
The 2017-2018 GoPlaySave Coupon Book Fundraiser will kick off on Tuesday, July 25th and will run through Friday, September 8th. The Raleigh GoPlaySave book sells for $30 each.  If our band sells at least 300 books, you will earn a $10 band account credit for each book you sell, and our ADHS Band's general fund will earn $5 per book sold.  In addition, for every 5 books that you sell, you will earn one free book. The GoPlaySave books are full of wonderful money saving coupons to places like Moe's, Dick's, Mellow Mushroom, Kroger, and Lochmere Golf Course. For a list of participating merchants, please see the attached document. These coupon books are easy to sell due to the number and variety of coupons; 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.   
 
Do you have friends or family living elsewhere in N.C.? Coupon books are also available for purchase through our band's sale for Chapel Hill/Durham ($25), Greensboro/Triad region ($25), and Charlotte ($30).  
 
GoPlaySave also offers a mobile app that can be downloaded from the Google Play store or the iTunes app store.  Using the mobile app you can browse for merchants in your area, access their list of offers, and redeem the coupons directly from your phone.  In order to purchase a mobile book, direct your customers to the following link:  
http://www.goplaysavetriangle.com/store/ADHSB2018 . In order for your student to receive credit for mobile book sales, it is very important that you instruct your family and friends to include your student's information as prompted.  In order to make this step easier, you can create your own personal URL by following the link and clicking on the button "Want to help your group sell more books?". Please note that the mobile option is independent of the traditional book and therefore will vary slightly from the printed book (some merchants and additional offers are added throughout the year while some merchants are omitted).
 
On Tuesday, July 25th we will have a display set up at the BAND PARENT BOOSTER FAIR.  Please plan to pick up your student's fundraiser packet at that time.  If you are unable to attend the Booster Fair, 
we will be available in the band hallway to collect money and to pass out additional books as follows:
 
·         July 26 & 27 from 9:30 to 10:15 pm
·         August 9 & 10 from 6 to 6:30 pm
·         August 16 & 17 from 6 to 6:30 pm
·         August 23 & 24 from 6 to 6:30 pm
·         August 30 from 5 to 5:30 pm
·         August 31 (before the first football game) from 6 to 6:30 pm
·         September 6 from 5 to 5:30 pm 
·         September 7 from 5:30 to 6 pm
 
As you prepare your packets to be turned in, please make sure that all checks are made payable to ADHS Band Boosters with your student's name on the memo line.  Any books that are unsold at the end of the sale must be turned in to us in new condition or your band account will be charged.
   
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 Char Grill.  Thank you for supporting our band program through this fundraiser. Happy selling!
