The TSC Clover Card offers special deals to those in the 4-H community — parents, guardians, volunteers and leaders — and provides chances to win TSC gift cards for their club.
The TSC Clover Card is a great way to celebrate the new partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H! Each use of the card shows TSC the value of 4-H customers and, more importantly, enters your 4-H club for chance to receive gift cards from Tractor Supply.
Each month, TSC will randomly select five transactions made with the Clover Card. The local club associated with each of those cards will receive a $500 Tractor Supply Gift Card. Remember, each swipe of the card gives your club a better chance to win gift cards from TSC!
Sign up deadline for the card is November 21, 2010.
Who is eligible for the TSC Clover Card?
4-H members, 4-H parents or guardians, volunteers, club leaders, and 4-H staff are eligible for the card. However, there can only be one card per household. TSC team members, store managers, vendors, and respective immediate family members are not eligible to sign up for a card. See the “Complete Rules” online at www.tractorsupply.com/4-H for details.
How do I get a TSC Clover Card?
The only way to sign up for the TSC Clover Card is via Tractor Supply Company’s 4-H mini-website, found at www.tractorsupply.com/4-H. Only a parent/guardian can sign up for the card if the 4-H member is under 18 years of age.
What are the benefits of signing up for the card?
By signing up, you will receive a 10% off coupon that comes along with the card. TSC will send you specials and promotions via email that are available only for cardholders. The TSC Clover Card will offer special deals to those in the 4-H community — youth, parents, guardians, volunteers, club leaders, staff — and provides chances for 4-Hers to win a TSC gift card for their club. By using their TSC Clover Card with every purchase, 4-Hers are entering their club into a monthly drawing for a $500 TSC gift card. There will be five (5) $500 gift cards awarded to clubs every month until June 2011.
How long do I have to sign up for the card and once I sign up, when will I receive it?
Enrollment for the pilot program runs through November 21, 2010. Cards will receive 2-4 weeks after the online card form has been completed.
How long is the card valid?
This pilot card program will expire on June 30, 2011.
Does every 4-Her in my family need to sign up for a card?
No, one registration per household is all that is needed. When you register for the TSC Clover Card you will receive 2 cards for your family to use. Anyone who is active in 4-H is eligible for this card.
Can I use my card for on-line purchases with TSC?
No, currently the cards are only for in-store purchases.
