Fairfax, Virginia - RVDA members can now save up to 80 percent on printing services and supplies thanks to RVDA’s recent endorsement of Office Depot. Office Depot and Office Max are now one company, so there are now more stores in more states where members can save. RVDA-endorsed products and services help dealers manage their businesses better by providing access to reliable products and services at significant discounts.
Office Depot provides printing, cleaning, break room, and office supplies for business and consumers. Under the RVDA-endorsed program, members are entitled to discounts on both in-store and online purchases, savings on printing, and free next day delivery on orders over $50. RVDA members can learn more on the Office Depot website where they can view a list of discounts on popular products and print a free store purchasing card.
“By endorsing Office Depot, the RVDA Board has added a tremendous benefit to membership, and one that every business can put to good use,” RVDA President Phil Ingrassia says. “The value of our RVDA-endorsed program just went up and dealers can look forward to achieving great savings under this agreement.”
Some dealers achieve enough savings by using endorsed products and services to pay for their entire cost of membership in just a few weeks. These cost-saving, profit-generating, educational and business-improving benefits increase the value of membership.
