Lately, even if I am not immediately in the market to make a purchase, I have taken notes on where to find different coupon codes and when they expire “just in case.” It is always also helpful when I am looking to buy something to donate, or if I am involved in a group that needs some supplies. Sure, one can take a tax deduction for donating “in kind” items, but a little extra cash in the pocket while still putting an item in someone’s hands is always a good thing.
Why are travel codes important in the nonprofit world? You might find that you can cut costs when booking hotel for the No More Homeless Pets Conference in Las Vegas and bringing it in the affordable range, to free rental cars with qualified stays to maybe even buying a ticket to fly a child’s family. Sometimes when medical treatment is far away, only one parent can accompany the child and it may make it affordable for the other parent to fly to where the child was medflighted.
Have you used coupons and discount codes to make any magic happen for a donation recipient or to educate someone? Did it help you make the experience possible?
