Cool DFWAPC Member Discount Program

I’ve been working behind the scenes the last few months trying to organize a discount program with various aquatic retailers in the DFW area. This involved visiting with store managers, GMs, and owners. I approached with the attitude to “sell” DFWAPC to the person in charge of making decisions and to explain how I feel a discount program would be mutually beneficial to both parties involved. I consider it to be similar to a symbiotic relationship. The following is the result.

I’ll start with a few important parameters.

-======================-

You must be a card-carrying member of the DFW Aquatic Plant Club to take advantage of the following discounts. Membership is an excellent value @ $20 per year. Registration can be easily done online. I will post links at the bottom of this message for the website and “JOIN” links. Believe me when I tell you this will be the best $20 you will spend in this hobby. Membership is good for one year.

Participating stores were given a sample of our membership card to use for verification purposes. An expiration date in listed on member cards and retailers will use this as a measure to confirm current membership. This gives the retailer a level of security and hinders those who demand a club discount without being a member.

If you don’t have your card with you at the time of purchase no discount will be given (unless the retailer knows you or has record of your membership). For example, DNA noted on my account I was to receive a discount on future purchases due to my membership. However, this does not mean DNA will do this for everyone.

Tip: I keep my membership card in my glove compartment and carry it into the stores when I’m shopping.

Discounts may not be combined and may not apply to items on sale, used items, or other low-margin items.

Discounts are given out of generosity and in support of membership in the DFW Aquatic Plant Club. These discounts are a privilege and NOT a right. Due to low profit margin on certain items (such as a tank or a loss-leader), a retailer has the right to refuse to give a discount on items of their choice. Most retailers listed below EXCLUDE tanks from the discount program.

Don’t argue with a retailer over whether an item should be discounted. It’s their decision to make, not ours.

Remember: When you visit a LFS as a DFWAPC member you represent us as a group. If a member gives a retailer a bad impression or acts like an a$$, it harms us all and could result in us losing our discount privileges at a specific LFS.
