Many Associations seek Member Programs that can provide valuable benefits for their membership, often covering annual dues. Working with a quality credit card processor can result in saving money for members and derive a revenue sharing opportunity.

In today's troubled economy, many business owners are looking for ways to trim their monthly expenses and raise revenues. As General Counsel to various Associations, I have witnessed first hand how annual dues are often the first cut made by small business owner/Association Members unless the Association can show value exceeding the annual cost of Membership.
An easy way to ensure continued Member growth and justify the expense of annual dues is simply by offering valuable programs that in essence pay for themselves. Throughout my years as Counsel to various Societies and Associations, I actively sought out such relationships. Then, after being introduced to the business of credit card processing , I found a win- win opportunity for Medical Associations and their Members. For the past six years, and after receiving multiple endorsements with large Associations, we formed MBS Value LLC, a company that has saved millions of dollars in aggregate savings for its participants. Now it is available online for all businesses (no longer focused only on the medical field) with easy access at www.chargecardsavings.com.
This program offers a free no cost analysis of current credit card processing transactional charges at www.chargecardsavings.com. It is an easy way to show the Association first and then it's member/business owners simple ways to ensure maximum cost efficiencies and savings in accepting card payment and at the same time increasing profits. Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest. The program guarantees savings and the analysis is free with no obligation to the Association itself, individual business owners and members of participating Associations.
This free analysis is as simple as providing a recent credit card statement and providing a contact person. Signing up takes less than five minutes. Thereafter, a business owner receives a true comparison of its current transactional fees and an immediate lowering of expenses. Upon implementation of our program a business will increase revenues by lowering its transactional costs. We have saved thousands of dollars for thousands of individual business owners. What are you waiting for. Find out how much money you can save at www.chargecardsavings.com.
A recent analysis of the savings offered to the over 1200 businesses currently serviced by our company shows an average savings in excess of $1200 per year for each business which for many, can cover the entire cost of the annual dues.
When selecting the right merchant processing partner, knowing who you are associated with is key. As an example, First Data, a Fortune 50 company, handles merchant processing for almost 70% of the credit card transactions in the country. Do you know who your merchant processing company is associated with?
Associations who select MBS Value can not only help save their individual members money that possibly will cover the entire annual dues but can also receive revenue sharing to support their Organization as the relationship grows. Creating a win-win benefit for all that participate, (see www.chargecardsavings.com)
