Minerals Club membership discount program. Norcross - Madagascar offers members
discounted prices based on yearly accumulated spending:
"MADAGASCAR MINERALS CLUB" DISCOUNT SYSTEM TO COMMENCE AT TUCSON '09
the last 16 years, we have adopted a pricing system that offers price breaks
based on the quantity purchased of individual items. This is a fair system
designed to protect our resellers. However, we have noticed that we have no
system to reward the MAJORITY of our clients who purchase many items in smaller
quantities. Additionally, we have many great loyal customers who on a monthly
basis purchase many frequent smaller orders. These latter clients, it turns
out, spend more throughout the year than do clients who buy only once or twice.
Therefore, for the last 5 years we have implemented a 4-level discount
membership incentive program, the "Madagascar Minerals Club" to
complement our existing system. This program will accumulate each client's
total spending throughout the year. Each member will have a color coded card
(>$500=Blue, >$1000=Silver, >$2000=Gold and >$5000= Green) which
will work at any Norcross show location, gallery or website** throughout the
year. Once a client reaches a particular color level, that level determines the
price they pay for anything, any quantity, until the end of the year.
Color-coded price levels will apply to all our pricing cards, along with our
usual quantity-based price break system. Clients, starting at this show, can
target a color zone to receive the specific color-coded discount. The top color
zone (Green), is our lowest price. This removes the questions and ambiguities
from our pricing, and offers the lowest price to our loyal repeat clients.
Clients who use their card at the next Norcross show, can aim for the next
higher discount color, building upon their previous purchases in the same
calendar year. The discounts will not be carried back retroactively to give
refunds on purchases made on previous days or at previous shows, so plan your buying
wisely to maximize your savings.
Madagascar Minerals Club members that would like to use the website for the
program, please use the "wish list" feature, and contact one of our
sales reps to customize your pricing on your color or aim towards your next
