The Group Program is a way for family, friends and neighbors to work together to obtain discounts on items relating to home storage and emergency preparedness. Each group has two parts:
- The Group Leader is the person in the group who shares the information and coordinates the order for the group. The Group Leader needs to be someone who is organized and enjoys serving others. They collect the money from the group and place the order with Emergency Essentials®. When the order is shipped it will ship to the Group Leader's address unless specified otherwise. The Group Leader receives the specials through a monthly mailed packet and email (if available).
- A Group Member is any individual with whom the Group Leader shares the monthly Group Specials. When Group Members are added to our database they receive the group specials information directly each month through our monthly sales flier and email (if available).
Group Members combine their orders through their Group Leader to meet the minimum purchase requirements. When minimums are met (or if their order is below minimums but has been approved by the Group Order Department) there are NO shipping and handling charges added to the order when shipped within the contiguous 48 states. When minimums are not met, regular prices and shipping and handling charges may apply. Call for shipping charges to Alaska, Hawaii, APO and FPO addresses. Group items include sales tax when the minimum is purchased and the order is shipped within the state of Utah.
Customizing a group special is another way in which groups can become prepared. Group Leaders can assess any special preparedness needs and call to inquire if a quantity discount is available. If there are items in the catalog that your group would like to focus on, please call 1-800-999-1863 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the estimated number you will purchase along with your shipping address. We will then submit a request for a quantity discount.
We welcome your suggestions for group items, improvements we can make to the group program, or any tips and hints you have learned from your experiences with preparedness or the group program.
If you are not already a Group Leader and are interested in starting a group, give us a call at 1-800-999-1863 or e-mail us at email@example.com today. We will sign you up as a Group Leader and mail you information right away. We look forward to hearing from you!
