      04/30/2014   SUNY Mother's Day Savings Fair 2014

The SUNY Perks discount program Mother's Day Savings Fair runs from Monday, April 28 until Saturday, May 10.  During this time, special discounts are available on popular Mother's Day gifts, such as flowers, sweets, spa treatments, and more.

Also just in time for Mother's Day, Perks has integrated FTD and 1800Flowers into ONECart, which allows employees to easily compare pricing and select fresh flower delivery from a florist or shipment by FedEx/UPS.  Besides this great feature and the added convenience of a having a single checkout for multiple merchant purchases, purchasing via ONECart also means fewer email solicitation, since customer email addresses are not added to merchant mailing lists.  In this way, ONECart helps employees save money and time, and it's always getting better:  soon, ONECart will feature the Walmart Everyday Essentials store, which will offer great discounts on everyday household items and the ability to schedule automatic re-ordering of these items.
