Greenstack: the free app that gives back

Remember Greenstack?

It’s the iPhone app that finds discounts for members of the Bicycle Transportation Alliance, GEARs, the League of American Bicyclists, AAA, AARP and more.

Now when you download the Greenstack app (for free) and add the BTA to your Stack of memberships Greenstack will donate $0.50 to the BTA.

With a free deal that great, I decided to install Greenstack myself to see it in action. I headed out on errands with Tom Rousculp, our Membership Development Manager. We needed a few things for the office which was the perfect time to give Greenstack a try.

We planned to stop by Ace Hardware, Clever Cycles, and Madison’s Grill. In the end we also ended up at Oblation Paper & Press for a last-minute gift.

The first stop, Ace Hardware, was to pick up some duct tape and zip ties for the Kids Cross tent. You can fix anything with duct tape and zip ties, right?!

A hardware store isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind when you think of BTA Memeber Benefits, but with Greenstack in hand we knew we could show our Membership card for a 10% discount.

The cashier knew all about the discount too. We paid, recorded our purchase in Greenstack, and headed back out on the road.

At Clever Cycles we picked up some chain lube to have at the office and I picked up some leather protector for myself. Thanks to Greenstack and my BTA Membership card, both the chain lube and my leather protector were 10% off the normal price!

Our final destination was Madison’s Grill. We didn’t stop at Madison’s for office supplies but it was getting near dinner time and Tom and I needed to refuel.

Madison’s offers a 20% discount to BTA Members so it was a natural place for us to go after stopping by Clever Cycles.

We had something to drink and split an order of onion rings. Everything was delicious and really hit the spot after running errands by bike. (Don’t forget to show your server your BTA Membership Card.)

As we got ready to pack up and go we received word a friend had just gone for her first ride after spending time in the hospital.

We knew we wanted to get a card for her but we weren’t sure where to go.

Thankfully we had the Greenstack app pulled up and it told us Oblation Paper & Press offers a 10% discount to BTA members. After a short ride across the river we had a greeting card in hand.

Throughout the day we saved a total of $5.13.

Coincidentally, our monthly sustaining memberships start at just $5.00 a month for better biking. Your membership is always current and you provide reliable, unrestricted support for the programs and advocacy that have made Oregon the best place in America to ride a bike.

If you’re not already a BTA member, join us today to take advantage of Greenstack and all of our member benefits.
