Madagascar Minerals Club membership discount program. Norcross - Madagascar offers members discounted prices based on yearly accumulated spending:

NEW "MADAGASCAR MINERALS CLUB" DISCOUNT SYSTEM TO COMMENCE AT TUCSON '09

Over 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 level.

Here is an example of a price card to explain the system:

Starting price is the retail price for someone selecting one item:

    Blue members, (or those that have committed to spend $500 receive x discount)
     
    Silver members
     
    Gold members
     
    Green members
