9 ways to make budget
Trying to meet your company (or department) budget for 2014? Tap into $25 million in savings through your Chamber membership with these nine ways to save, grow and get connected in the new year! No time to read? No sweat -- just calculate your Chamber savings to get your ROI today!
#1 Health Insurance
There's lots of confusion, truly, but here's the bottom line: rates are rising. Exercise your Chamber membership benefit and lock in up to 4% savings on your company's healthcare coverage. Chamber member company DeanHouston did -- and said "we saved so much that we were able to offer vision and dental coverage for our employees." Start saving now!
#2 Workers' Compensation
Employees covered? Check. Company covered? Use your Chamber member discount to cover your business. Your membership merits a 53% discount (the maximum allowed by the Bureau of Workers' Compensation) and more: free Safety Council participation (a $1,200 value) and an additional 4% off when you complete the program. Plus, a 7% discount on Sheakely's Drug Free Safety Program. We saved the best for last: our members saved an average of nearly $5,000 last year! Start saving now!
#3 Office Supplies
This one's for you -- and your employees! Get up to 55% off on over 400 products, save on break room & janitorial services (think coffee and cleaning!) Don't forget about the free & next-day delivery on orders of $50 and more. Start saving now!
#4 Credit & Debit Card Processing
Pick up the phone and get a savings projection on the biggest convenience you offer to your customers. Infintech will review your plan and help you save up to 40% on your processing costs. Start saving now!
Gotta get to New York, Chicago or Charlotte? Put your tray table in an upright position and open your wallet for savings: NEW Chamber members get 50% off up to 10 tickets, and Gold Chamber members get a 10% discount. Take the Ultimate Air Shuttle to NY from Lunken and now CVG, fly Ultimate to Chicago or Charlotte from Lunken. Start saving now!
If you own the building (or are responsible for the Duke bill) you should have a say in what you pay. Get fixed rate pricing on your electricity bill, and reduce your costs through our group-buying power discount today. Start saving now!
