    Good way to alienate your existing $100 members. Bad idea, imho. If you want $250 perks, pay $250. Otherwise, pay $100 and get $100 perks. A member shouldn't get $250 perks for $99. It undermines the entire membership structure.

    That is true, but for someone like me who was on the fringe of donating now I can see the benefits of having the $250 membership and will know that it is worth the money for years to come. I assume it is only a one year membership deal.

    Plus doesn't Groupon get to keep like half of the cash? I will stick with donating directly.

    Re: Cyclone Gridiron Club Groupon

    There are only 5 memberships available on Groupon, so it is probably just more of a different way to advertise the CGC than alienate prior members or make money.

    ...or I don't understand Groupon and 5 need to be bought to make the deal active.

    This. And I'm guessing the hope is that those who get the $250 membership now will want to keep it for years to come. Especially since that is the level that gets them into the special events. I guarantee that while there will be some who drop back to the 100 level after this year, there will be others who now feel like part of a small special group who will keep donating at this or higher levels.

    Re: Cyclone Gridiron Club Groupon

    Does Gridiron club membership count towards cyclone club membership?

    Agreed. Give the money directly to the Cyclone Club or the Gridiron Club. Don't let some middleman like Groupon get anything. And I think they get 50% of the "savings" here. So the Gridiron Club will probably have to pony up $75 for every one of these sold...

    No, they are completely separate.

    I see what you are saying, but it's no different then the athletic department selling tickets for cheaper later in the season when season ticket holders paid more for the same tickets. It doesn't really bother me because I like the stadium to be full.

    And besides the fact they are only selling 5, it's a good way to try and get people to stick with the $250 donation after the first year is up by showing them what this donation level offers.
