The name Conneks comes from the word connection. The definition of connection is the process of bringing ideas or events together or the act of bringing two or more things into contact especially for the purpose of communication. At Conneks we strive to bring Customers, Vendors and Charities together to communicate, share ideas and work together to make a difference in the lives of others around the world.
To make a difference in this world without asking people to donate any money or to volunteer their time. To create a Win-Win-Win situation for Customers, Vendors and Charities so that those less fortunate profit from the funds created. Customers win because they receive discounts on products and services and they get to choose what charity the Vendors will donate to every time they make a purchase with their card. Vendors win because they profit from direct marketing, more clients and better advertising. Charities win because they receive funding without having to spend valuable time, money and effort in collecting donations. It is our goal to help charities focus their time and efforts on helping people instead of spending time on raising funds.

The conneks card is not a credit card or a debit card. The conneks card is a digital discount / loyalty card. It's like having a big book of coupons in one card. You'll be able to use this card to shop at hundreds of different vendors in your community and eventually at our online store. Every time you use the card a donation is made from the vendor to a charity of your choice. If you allow vendors to view your online conneks profile they will also be able to see your wants & needs, likes & dislikes in order to serve you better and be stocked with the products you want before you even ask. Conneks is currently negotiating with some major banks in order to turn the card into a super amazing debit / discount card all in one. However, from the official launch the card will be just plain Super! A super discount card that will help you save money and save lives.
To be honest, we need your help. The more vendors that are referred to us the faster we can officially launch conneks. We have some fantastic sales people volunteering their time to talk to the vendors. However, with your help the process can be sped up and we can launch even sooner to start saving you money and helping out local charities. We hope to launch sometime between the end of May or early June of 2011.
In the beginning we would like to focus on local charities in the lower mainland and throughout B.C. However, You are more than welcome to choose any registered charity around the world. If it's not on our list please refer it. The charity must pass a screening test to make sure it is officially registered and has a registration number. Then we would be thrilled to add it to our list so that you can start giving to the charities you care about ASAP.
It is our goal at conneks to one day have vendors all across the world but we need to start small and build from there. We would love to talk with vendors in the Lower Mainland first before we expand. We would like to provide a wide range of discounts on everything from food and gas to clothing and movies. So, any business big or small is more than welcome.
It really depends on how often and where you use the card. The discounts available through conneks are different for each vendor. You can save anywhere from 0.25 cents to $500.00 depending on what you are purchasing. The discounts will be displayed online at conneks.com and you can even see how much money you saved and how much money was donated to charity on your conneks.com profile page.
This really depends on where you use your card and or how much you spend. For example one of our vendors gives a $20 discount to the customer and donates $10 per purchase no matter what you buy. While another vendor gives 5% to charity and a 5% discount of a total sale to the customer. It may not seem like much but when you have over 250,000 cardholders the numbers add up quickly and a lot of money can be raised for Charity. The amount of money that goes to charity will be displayed online for each vendor. You'll also be able to view online how much money you have saved and how much was donated using your conneks card.
Absolutely! Conneks.com is committed to giving 100% of your donation to the charity you have chosen. Whether you donate $1 or $1000, we will make sure that every penny of it gets to the charity that you care about.
Your conneks card can be used at any of our vendors retail locations and our online shopping site at conneks.com. Every time you make a purchase, swipe your card through the terminal at the cash register. A discount will be given to you and a donation will be made from the vendor to the charity that you have chosen. When shopping online you'll be asked to provide your card number at the point of sale. Type in the information and start saving money and saving lives.
It is our goal that one day soon you will be able to use your card all around the world. We have chosen Vancouver B.C. and the lower mainland as a starting point and we will expand from there in the upcoming months when we have laid the proper groundwork. It is our desire at conneks.com to extend our service into as many countries as possible in order to help people save money and provide for charitable causes no matter where you live. We believe in building long lasting relationships with customers, vendors and charities so we are taking the building process one step at a time. Conneks.com will be coming soon to a local vendor near you.
