Xtraman Fundraising

Xtraman's discount card is different from many others on the market because it boasts over 300,000 discounts nationwide from restaurants, bowling alleys, movie theaters, retailers and theme parks. Even better, the relationships are already established. You should also know that the card can be used both locally and while traveling.

There are no minimum order requirements to turn a profit, and cards sell for $10 or $20. Furthermore, shipping is free (with an estimated delivery time between two and three weeks). The profit margin is between 50 and 80 percent, depending on the volume of cards you sell, and no payment is due upfront to get started.

The fact that money isn't due in advance is a beneficial feature since most schools don't have the means to cover the costs upfront, as noted in a review from Education World. However, it is strongly recommended that you read the fine print since the earning potential is not explicitly stated on the website.

How to Get Started

You can complete the inquiry form online or call 1-800-405-6020 to move forward with your order.
