TBA Benefits you can bank on

Verizon Wireless Contractor Discount Program

As a TBA member, you’re eligible for many benefits, including discounts on wireless service, a rebate program, a $500 GM discount and much more. Here’s one member’s experience with Verizon Wireless:

“Since opening a Verizon Wireless Account, we’ve saved over $3,000 on our company phone bill because of TBA and HBAV,” says Lucky Peterson of The Terry/Peterson Cos. “Although we initially partnered with Verizon Wireless because of their superior products and service, our membership in TBA enhanced that relationship by providing 22 percent off our monthly phone bill. The program enrollment was straightforward and easy to complete. As long as we stay enrolled by keeping our TBA membership current, our direct savings will continue to accumulate.”

To be eligible for the discount you must be a builder, subcontractor or supplier and have at least 5 phone lines. This discount cannot be accessed at the local Verizon stores.

Builder rebate program can pay off big

When times are good, most of us don’t want to bother with product rebate forms. The perceived hassle just doesn’t justify the return. In times like these, however, why leave money on the table? Especially when claiming it is so easy — and the return is so substantial.

As a TBA builder or remodeler member, you’re eligible to join the Home Builders Association of Virginia’s Member Rebate Program. Registering for the program is easy and you’ll receive e-mail reminders when each quarter’s claim forms are due. Currently there are 31 national manufacturers participating in the program

“For a small investment in time, it’s well worth (applying for the rebate),” says John Ainslie of The Ainslie Group. ” My rebates average about $900 per quarter. And once you apply the first time, you look forward to doing it again – especially when you receive that check. In one year, the amount that I get back through this rebate program will be far more than what I spend on membership dues.”
