The PerksCard Founded in 1988, PerksCard is a discount program offering savings from a growing network of 15,000 local merchants and over 200 national brands. It offers discounts on everyday items and can be used throughout the year, with no limit as to how many times you can use the card and is FREE to our members. We understand that typically, the approximate cost is $60 per year for this card.
There are four (4) ways members can access their savings. In-store savings are given by showing the card at the participating store. Coupons can be easily printed on-line and brought to the store you are planning to shop in. Members can purchase products online through PerksCard's national vendors and save.
If you like to eat out, rent videos, or go to the movies, you will save quite a bit with this card. Simply go to www.PerksCard.com and type in the registration "Code" which will be sent to you with your Guild membership card. Fill in required information and click "Register" to begin its use.
Members may also choose to purchase gift certificates and cards at reduced prices.
Please keep in mind that we are exploring this new benefit through our members and would like to hear from our members about its value (rather than accept the company’s claims). At this point, we cannot confirm all the claims that the company has made, although there have been some preliminary benefits found. Please let us know of your experience by contacting Renee Cardone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don't forget to take a moment and let us know whether these plans are useful.
Although the plans are free to NJSCSW/Guild members, they are not free to the Office of Professional Employees International (OPEIU) which pays for each member. Therefore, we'd like to insure that it has value The only way we will know whether these benefits have value is if we hear from you.
Careington Card Careington International was founded in 1979 by two dentists who now claim over 7 million members. They claim to be one of the deepest discounts in the healthcare industry with one of the largest independent dental networks in the country. They refer to themselves as the "best in class" discount health care marketplace.
This is a free benefit to NJSCSW/Guild members, and we'd like to explore its usefulness through our members. We'd like to hear, first hand, from you about its usefulness, cost savings, etc. The savings reported by the company are 20%-50% on most dental procedures, savings on vision care, hearing, pharmacy and diabetic care. They also include a 24-hour Nurse Line for assistance from licensed, registered nurses with one toll free number.
Here's the way we were told that it should work: All Guild members will receive a membership card, which is the key to accessing the benefits. The member first finds providers in their area by calling the number on their card, or by using the web at www.careington.com. The member goes for the service and shows their Careington card for verification. The practitioner's office will verify enrollment and then charge the member the reduced rate. The member pays the discounted rate at the time of service.
