Business Benefits FAQs
What is the Co-op Connection program?
It is a program that provides Cobb EMC members with discounts at participating local and national businesses.
How does it work?
Cobb EMC encourages all of our members to enroll in the program. Members may choose if they would like to redeem offers using the Co-op Connections card, mobile app or printable coupons. When they show the card, coupon or the offer in the app at any participating business, they receive a discount determined by the business owner. It’s that easy!
How can a local business participate?
All we require from the business is a special discount or service offering.
How will I know which businesses are participating?
You may view a list of participating businesses online.
How much does it cost a business to participate?
There are no fees associated with the program. The only cost to the business is the discount they offer.
What type of discounts can a business offer?
Each business designs its own discount. We like to see those that are unique and offer members true value. See what other businesses are offering.
How will customers know that we are a participating business?
Businesses may request a window cling sticker and/or cash register sticker identifying them as a participating business. Additionally, a full list will be maintained online.

We have informed members that to receive the discount they must present the card, coupon or show the offer in the app.
