Intergroup Discount Program

World Service extends a 30% discount in the Shopping Cart to Registered Intergroups that submit an application to register for the program. The hope is that this program helps Intergroups attract meetings to their service structure but also make literature more economically available.

This discount can help Intergroups generate a small revenue stream to fund local outreach efforts and help defray other expenses. But it is entirely up to the Intergroup to decide how they will administer this program to their member groups. We find that it works best, though, when the meetings realize some savings over purchasing the books themselves – even if it’s just that the discount allows the Intergroup to absorb the shipping costs.

The minimum order is $100 and books must be purchased in full case quantities. Regularly priced items in smaller quantities may also be purchased within the same order. The total of those add-on non-discounted items just needs to exceed the regular shopping cart minimum of $10.

To register your group, determine your Intergroup’s Designated Trusted Servant and fill out this form.  To see a sample form that may answer some of your questions, click here.

Either mail the completed and signed form to ACA WSO, P. O. Box 811, Lakewood, CA 90714-9998 – – or scan and email it to meetings@acawso.com.

After the registration form is received by WSO, your Designated Trusted Servant will receive an email from help@acawso.com with a Subject line that reads “Customer account activation”. The button within this email can be clicked to activate the Intergroup’s account.

After the Intergroup’s discount account is set up, it may only be accessed using the Trusted Servant’s email address that the Intergroup authorized, unless it is subsequently officially changed. Without an official change, no other email address will be recognized for the IG Discount.
