OSA Shopping/Gift Card Fundraiser
Support the OSA by simply spending money you already spend!
As you may know, we are selling shopping/gift cards as an easy way to help fund OSA programs and operations. That's right, you can help the OSA by simply spending money you already spend!
This is how it works. You buy shopping/gift cards and certificates through us at face value, we get them at a slight discount allowing us to make a percentage of the card amount. You’re then able to use the cards and certificates at stores and restaurants for yourself or give them as gifts.
They’re accepted, same as cash, at stores where you normally shop, such as grocery stores and clothing stores. They can be used to fill up your gas tank, rent a movie or pay for a meal at your favorite restaurant. They also make great gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person.
A few examples of shopping/gift cards offered are Jewel/Osco, Dominick’s, Applebee’s, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Home Depot, Sears and Speedway Gas Stations.
Vendors pay out different percentages ranging from 2% to 24% of the card amount. This means you can spend your normal amount each month on groceries, gas, entertainment, etc, and the OSA gets a cut at no additional cost to you!
The next round of orders must be postmarked by May 6th. Cards can be handed directly to you at the OSA Spring Fix-it on May 18th, or you can choose to have them mailed to your home for a small additional cost of $4.95 via Priority Mail (with signature confirmation).
NOTE: We will only send these cards and certificates via Priority Mail (with signature confirmation) because it is essentially the same as mailing cash. Orders received after the cut-off date will be returned because the cards must be ordered all at once.
These shopping/gift cards can be used all over the United States, not just in the Chicagoland area. And they're good for at least one year, so you don't have to worry about them expiring right away. Download the PDF below for a full list of vendors, insured shipping fees and an order form.
Download this form and fill it out completely. Make checks payable to the OSA, earmark them for the "Shopping/Gift Card Program" and send your order directly to Edgar Wolff-Klammer.
If you have any questions, you can e-mail Edgar directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
