New web platform expands member benefits

New membership benefit website and smartphone app provide access to member discounts while on the go.

The web platform allows members to customize the app to include frequently used offers; search offers by business name, location and category; and provide instant in-store discounts at nearby restaurants and retailers.

More than 300,000 discounts for hotels, restaurants, theme parks, movie theaters, prescriptions and more await Illinois Farm Bureau members. Thanks to a new membership benefit web platform, there’s something for every member to enjoy.

The new membership benefit platform provides access to member discounts while on the go. In addition to the web platform, members can download an app on their smartphones.

Click here to access the new web platform. Members must create an account and provide their three-digit county code and dash, followed by their IFB membership ID number.

Members can also go to the iPhone App Store, search “IL Farm Bureau Membership Benefits,” and download the app on their iPhone or iPad. Once downloaded, members may customize the app to include frequently used offers; search offers by business name, location and category; and provide instant in-store discounts at nearby restaurants and retailers.

The idea for the new benefit surfaced during a meeting of IFB Membership Promotion ACTION TEAM members. Monica Green of Arthur chairs the team, which helped develop the project.

“Members have everything to gain from this new platform. There’s truly something for everyone,” Green said.

Melissa Rhode, IFB marketing director, said the app shows members both local and national discounts.

“We’re extremely pleased to offer this new platform for our members,” Rhode added. “The app can even notify members when they’re near a business that offers discounts.”

Members who have questions about the app or additional IFB member benefits may contact their county Farm Bureau or the IFB Membership Call Center at 309-557-2689.
