Aftdh Evenlfig Telegraph Tuesday, Jan. 12, 1971 Alton area people receiving cash discounts? International Purchasing Corp. {IPC) believes that. people who pay cash should pay less. Cash customers Save the merchant the cost of extra bookkeeping and ct^dit losses. These extra business expenses, due to Credit buying, should not be inflicted upon the cash Customer. At this time over 50 Alton area businesses are giving cash discounts to IPC members. Any customer who presents an IPC membership card automatically receives a 10% or more discount on their purchase. IPC membership offers you many advantages. To understand how and why this works so well, read the following questions and answers: Q— Is this a new idea? A—No. This is already working on the west, coast and there have been articles written about it. in national magazines. It is working in St. Louis and is starting in Belleville. Q—Why does IPC \vork? A—For a change, you have a group of businesses and a group of families that are working together to help each other. New customers for the merchant and cash savings for the customer. Q—How can these businesses afford to give an honest 10% discount? A—It's very simple. If you have an IPC card you will change your buying habits. Instead of buying where you normally do you will buy where you can receive a cash discount. Any merchant can well afford to give a cash discount to a customer who normally would have made the same purchase elsewhere. This is plus business to him with no increase in overhead. Q—Do these businesses have competitive prices? A—Yes. If they weren't competitive, they would have gone out of business years ago. Q—What should IPC membership save me? A—IPC membership can save the average family $150.00 or more per year. Have you ever added up your family expenses for one year on the following items: dry cleaning, prescription, automobile service or repair, automobile parts, TV repair, optical service, lumber, hardware, paint, mens clothing, lawn or garden supplies, equipment or repair? These are just a few, but if you will add what you spent last year on these items alone and deduct 10% you will see what IPC could have saved you. Q—When do I show my IPC card? A—On merchandise that has a price tag, it doesn't matter. On service calls or repairs, wait until the bill is made out, then show your card and deduct your discount. Q—Will there be more busineses later who will honor IPC cards? A—Yes, as they join we will keep our members in- lormed. Q—What else does IPC offer family card members? A—IPC businesses from time to time will offer special sales for IPC members. All of these sales m Jii offer ed at an excellent savings or IPC will not accept it as an IPC special offer In the future IPC hopes to offer discounts on travel rates and free checking accounts.
