Savings on Uniforms, First-Aid Safety
Cintas (www.cintas.com) - A professional image can change first-time customers into loyal, repeat customers. Promoting the ASA affiliation as well as the shop's name displays a professional and reliable partnership your customers will respect and appreciate. Promotional products from Cintas provide a fun and smart way to market to customers. Cintas offers both a uniform rental program as well as discounts on purchased business apparel. Orders placed by ASA members through a specially designed ASA/Cintas Web site - accessed from www.ASAstore.com - receive a 15 percent discount. Once you log in with your member number, click on apparel and then the Cintas logo to be taken to the ASA/Cintas store.
Cintas and its First Aid & Safety Division also provide a money-saving program that will allow ASA members to keep their staff safe, productive and on the job; help maintain OSHA compliance through properly stocked first-aid kits and cabinets, personal protective equipment and training programs; and reduce injuries and lower workers' compensation costs. ASA member-businesses that may already use Cintas as their first-aid and safety vendor will begin to see an increased savings over their current agreements.
Convenient Payment Option for Customers
GE Money/CarCareOne (www.carcareone.net) - One of ASA's most popular member benefits is the CarCareONE program, a consumer-designed credit card program, offered through GE Money. The CarCareONE program provides ASA members with an instant financing solution, allowing them to offer customers the option of paying for their repairs over 90 days, six months, or 12 months. CarCareONE is a proven way for ASA shops to increase their RO ticket sizes, create more traffic, and generate repeat business. ASA members not enrolled in CarCareONE can call ASA's Membership Department at (800) 272-7467, ext. 295, for more details. SPECIAL: ASA members can offer the 90-day promotion for a cost of 0 percent through May 31, 2009! To ensure your rate is zero for this promo, enter transaction code 333 when processing the sale.
