Member-to-Member Discount Program Boosts Sales

From ice cream to home improvements, the Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) and its members have the tools to save your business money and the solutions to help you run it more efficiently.

The GGCC is proud to offer a Member-to-Member Discount Program (M2M), which was created to provide our members with another service to add value to their Chamber membership.

You can get exclusive discounts on various products and services as a benefit of your GGCC membership. Our M2M program enhances the value of your membership by giving you the opportunity to buy goods and services from other members at a discount. This is a benefit you can pass along to all of your employees.

This member’s only program provides excellent discounts and benefits from other chamber members, all while generating more business for our members.

This program offers a unique combination of promoting member to member buying, boosting sales for our members, and increasing member visibility. Chamber member businesses and their employees are encouraged to patronize fellow members. There are nearly 400 GGCC members representing more than 20,000 employees in the Montgomery County Upcounty, which results in significant purchasing power that can positively impact your business.

As part of the M2M Program, Chamber members and all of their employees are eligible to use the program and a member can verify another member’s eligibility for program discounts on our M2M discount page on the GGCC website. Members simply state they are a GGCC member at these participating businesses to receive their discount on many products and services.

We encourage our members to take advantage of this opportunity to save money, as well as generate new exposure and new clients for your business.

The GGCC is committed to your business success. Discover how a GGCC membership really pays off with the M2M Program. Learn more at:
