What it is.
The Co-op Connections Card program is a benefit to members of Callaway Electric Cooperative, for free, just for being part of the cooperative.
What does the Co-op Connections Card do?
If you already have a card, take it with you wherever you go. If you need a card, contact our member service department and we'll be happy to mail you one. When you see a Co-op Connections Card logo on the window, door or cash register of a business, you can use your card at that business to get valuable discounts on products or services. A list of participating businesses is available at the Co-op Connections website.
“We’re excited to offer this benefit to members of Callaway Electric Cooperative,” said Jeremiah Strode, Member Service Advisor. “It’s a win-win-win program,” he said.
Program benefits members, businesses and co-op.
Members benefit when they patronize local businesses and get special offers. Local businesses benefit from the free promotion of their participation, which will drive additional customer traffic and sales. The co-op benefits by building stronger ties to the local business community and by reinforcing the special relationship a cooperative has with its members.
Members also can use the Co-op Connections Card when they travel, thanks to the national reach of the Touchstone Energy cooperative network.
“Anywhere in the country that members see the Co-op Connections Card logo — Illinois, Kentucky, Texas, wherever — those local merchants will offer our members the same valuable discounts that they’ve arranged with their local Touchstone Energy cooperative,” Strode said.
“This is just another way we’re bringing value to our members.”
