Easy Shopping, Easy Savings

It’s no secret that we think we have the best benefits in town (OK, well, the state too). Through our services and discounts, many members actually find that they save more than the cost of their ATPE membership. Last month, we gave you tips on how to use products like our lodging and car rental discounts for any travels you’re planning, but there are a variety of ways you can save if shopping is your game. With that thought in mind and the following shopping tips in hand, we have no doubt you’ll be bargain hunting in no time.

Utilize ATPE’s Online Shopping Mall
Enjoy an exclusive shopping experience with our online mall destination, Azigo. All those stores located at a physical mall? Azigo has them, too! That means you can shop for items like school supplies, clothes, and electronics at a discount—from your home—and get some money back in your pocket. Combine our virtual mall with back-to-school sales and save even more. Once Target, Walmart, and Office Depot put their school supplies on sale, order through Azigo and watch the savings fly.

Capitalize on up to 80 Percent Savings on Office Supplies
ATPE members can save up to 80 percent on more than 93,000 products through Office Depot/OfficeMax. That’s right, 8-0. Our partnership with this company also means prices below retail value and free next-day delivery for orders over $50—plus, the 80 percent off is good online and at the store! Do your shopping through Azigo and you’ll get cash back on top of everything else.

Take Advantage of Tax-Free Weekend
Mark your calendars: Tax-free weekend is Aug. 11–13. Save yourself time and from having to deal with crowds by shopping from home. Many stores even offer free shipping during the weekend. That means you can potentially get free shipping and tax-free shopping. And you can get cash back if you go through our online shopping mall, Azigo. These tips are applicable later in the year, too, when we’re all gearing up for the holidays with Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Search for Discounted Gift Cards
Gift cards are essentially just plastic money to spend at a store, so imagine the savings you can achieve if you buy a gift card at a discounted price! Sites like Gift Card Granny and Raise offer thousands of deals for hundreds of brands.

Many thanks to ATPE Regional Representative Cynthia Villalovos for these great tips! Cynthia is the representative for Regions 3 and 4.
