Earlier this month, we shared five different ways that the Retailers Association can save you money. This week, we’re back with five MORE ways we can enhance your business and save your hard-earned cash.
1. Credit Card Processing
The South Dakota Retailers Association has negotiated a very low rate for credit card processing through Worldpay, and we may be able to reduce your fees significantly. Worldpay will securely process all popular payment types and we have various options, including point-of-sale systems, that can accommodate virtually any business. Hundreds of South Dakota businesses already use this popular service.
2. Self-funded health plans and 401(k) retirement plans
Hahn Financial Group in Sioux Falls offers options for health or retirement plans at a discount to Retailers Association members. If your business has two or more employees, and you’ve been thinking about health insurance for your staff, you could be eligible to participate in a self-funded Association Health Plan. And starting a 401(k) retirement plan is becoming more popular as a way to retain quality employees.
3. DirecTV discounts
If you use DirecTV in your business, we can get you a discount on your service. Retailers Association members get a guaranteed price for two years, you’ll save $20 per month when you enroll in auto bill pay, and DirecTV will waive some of the initial fees.
4. Vision Insurance
Retailers Association members receive a discounted rate though our partner, Optilegra. Optilegra’s vision plan is accepted by 98% of the vision centers in South Dakota and it offers discounts for LASIK procedures at Vance Thompson Vision, the Black Hills Regional Eye Institute, and the Wright Vision Center, among others. This service is growing in popularity as businesses look at new ways to retain employees.
5. Information Technology and Data Security
Infotech provides a variety of IT and data security services, and we use their phishing email training service with our staff members to help identify and dispose of the spam emails that are becoming more and more prevalent. Infotech will also conduct a free security assessment for Retailers Association members.
