Eagle Card Discount Program General Information
Eastern Michigan University and the Ypsilanti Area Chamber of Commerce are excited to announce a new, no-fee promotional card program. Called the Eagle Discount Program, the goal is to promote Ypsilanti-area businesses that agree to provide a discount of their choosing to EMU students, employees and alumni who show their EMU identification card and Chamber members who show their membership card (please see card examples below).
EMU and the Chamber promote participating businesses in many ways:
- Inclusion in an EMU brochure distributed throughout the university
- Recognition on EMU fliers posted in high-traffic campus areas
- Exposure via a new EMU Web page devoted exclusively to the program
- Visibility through chamber e-mails, Web site, newsletters and meetings
With more than 23,000 EMU students, 2,000 EMU employees and 1,000 Ypsilanti Area Chamber of Commerce representatives, our cardholders are a significant group of local patrons for your business. We hope you will find this program helpful in promoting your business and are requesting a two-year commitment. In exchange for your commitment, we ask that you will show your Eagle Pride and support of this program by displaying an EMU nonsticky static cling in your door or front window and consider displaying an EMU flag and/or pennant. EMU will provide all promotional materials to you at no cost.
Although this program is just beginning, we have received extensive interest and enthusiasm from business and community leaders as well as from EMU students, employees, alumni, retirees and Ypsilanti Area Chamber of Commerce members.
