With Member Savings Advantage, members have the option to redeem various discounts on dining, entertainment, automotive, shopping, and home and garden at both the local and national level via both web and mobile platforms. As of July 31, over 353,000 web discounts were available and more than 225,000 mobile discounts were available to members.
Since the program’s inception in February, Ohio has already enrolled 103 new local merchants statewide, and Bob Evans Restaurants was just included as part of the program in August. (Editor’s Note: The Bob Evans discount is no longer available.)
Wayne County member Rhonda Oser learned about the program through reading Buckeye Farm News and because Ohio Farm Bureau has an email address on file for her, she also receives emails exclusive to Member Savings Advantage that share savings opportunities.
“I use coupons, and on my phone, the program is easy to use,” she said. So far she has only redeemed coupons related to food or restaurants, but she typically finds a coupon to use at least once per month. She said the mobile app shows restaurant offers based on her location, so if she is out with her family, her phone will pick up her location and show her the offers in that area.
She estimates she has saved $20 so far. “I own a beef cattle farm and am also a teacher and like the educational benefits, and Member Savings is just an added benefit.”
