Introducing BING Deals by Microsoft: Saves Families Money & Helps Fund School Programs
There are so many flash sale and daily deal sites out there, but none so far like Microsoft’s new BING Deals. What makes this one stand out from all the others? Well, for starters it helps to support the fundraising efforts of individual schools across the USA while at the same time saving you money on the products you love.
At the beginning of the school year, the plea heard in every classroom, from teachers across the country is:
“We don’t have enough money – can you please bring extra supplies?”
Microsoft has come up with a very interesting and innovative way to help local merchants grow their businesses (think groupon) while saving people money and funding local schools.
So, how does this new program work?
School can either individually or in groups, contact local merchants to take part in the BING Deals program. Every deal that the school (or schools) sell, the PTA will earn a commission for having sourced the deal. They can do this either on their own websites or through marketing affiliate tools/channels that BING provides. BING will help merchants plan, run and drive marketing efforts for that specific deal.
I think this is an interesting program and if it takes off could really make a difference with the fundraising efforts of schools. With the school fees up in California and double digit unemployment all across the U.S, BING Deals could very well ease the strain on the pocketbooks of parents, taxpayers and school boards.
