"Being part of VCA has been a large part of the growth of our company. Not only does it help with cash flow but the hidden advantage to barter that so many businesses don't even realize is there is the network. With the connections to the national network, we've been able to reach clients that wold never have even found us otherwise. VCA has helped bring our company national and we have clients all over the US and Canada because of it. The cost involved with advertising to get this type of nation side access would be a small fortune.
Thanks you Value Card Alliance for opening our eyes to the barter network!"
"Thank you Value Card for all of your hard work and efforts! You have softened the blow of the economic hard times with the trade /barter program that you provide. I am always able to find everything I need from home repair to vacations! I will always use your company to meet needs that arise every day."
Thank you! Sincerely,
"I believe belonging to Value Card Alliance has brought extra income to our business. Barter shoppers will only shop with barter money bringing more clients to our business. I also use my barter money to shop at other business, ANYTHING I would spend money on seems to be available on barter trade through Value Card Alliance. My family seems to find a great deal of value to the system, we eat out all over town, dental, landscaping, VEGAS trips, Cruises, any day to day things like pet grooming, shopping, personal training and night life. I really have enjoyed the expirence with other business owners. With as many options Value Card has and believe me I have been approched by other trade programs, Value Card Alliance has the most to trade with !"

"I've been involved with Value Card for about 6 months now and it's been a really positive experience. Restaurants, Suns games, home improvement... I can't say enough. It saves you money on things you where planning on buying anyway by getting them on barter. It also gives you the opportunity to purchase products or services that you may not feel justified spending actual cash for. I'd recommend any one try it out."
Will Chase - Scottsdale Website Design
"About 6 months ago I opened up a store selling high-end handbags which literally would have been impossible without Value Card. Having only enough capital to purchase inventory, I have been able to use Value Card funds for: my store rent, my alarm system, all my signage, cleaning, locksmith services, printing, employee bonuses, my website and almost all of my advertising which has been instrumental to the success of my new business. For obvious reasons I am a big fan of Value Card Alliance!"

"I wanted to give you some feedback on service from Value Card and feel free to spread the good news. On Tuesday I had called another trade organization, with which we still have some spendable trade, and wanted to book a room at the Country Inn and Suites. I left a message for two different people there and I still haven't received a call back!! Then I thought I would check with Value Card to see if the hotel was a member with you. Christie got right on it. Without any hassles, she waived the cash travel fee since it was only for a one-night stay and within an hour had not only gotten back to me, but left me with a confirmation number. Pretty stark contrast in service there. I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate the responsiveness and professionalism of Value Card and feel free to have any other prospective members call me for a reference!"

"VCA has saved me so much money over the years! I have several rentals and using VCA members for my home improvements definitely has been a great asset. I have saved so much cash out of pocket for roofing, painting, cleaning, pest control,contracting and more! It has also been wonderful to treat myself and family to massage, beauty services, ball games and restaurants.I have also made some great contacts and been able to refer cash business to VCA members since I know their great work ethic. VCA has been a great asset to me, especially during a time where I need to watch my cash outflow more carefully. It's a simple, old fashioned concept, but they have perfected it to be able to make transactions seamless for a nominal fee. The membership keeps growing so quickly, I easily use my barter dollars. Thanks VCA!"

"I have been doing barter over the last few years and have found that VCA not only has an exhaustive supply of barter partners, but that the very friendly staff are always willing to help me find what I need and with lightning fast response. I LOVE VCA!!"

"After being a member of The Value Card Alliance for nearly 2 years, I can honestly say it is by far the most proactive and customer service-oriented barter club I have ever used. I have been a member of numerous barter clubs and have found most of them to be slow when it comes to helping you get new business and anxious when it comes to getting you to spend your money. Not VCA. They continuously present our services to other VCA clients and we have no trouble attaining new business. For example, at one point, I found myself with a low balance in my trading account and I called to ask for help. By the end of the day, I had over $5,000 in new business in my account and I didn't lift a finger. Now that's service! Every month they bring on dozens of new, quality business members so spending the money is not a problem either. Unlike other clubs which have a small selection of businesses, VCA a variety of options for just about any category. When we needed a dentist, there were 4 to choose from...not just one. That kind of thing is important in a barter club. Lastly, when most other clubs send you to voicemail, and are very slow to respond, I always can get someone on the phone at VCA to help with questions immediately. Everyone at the Value Card Alliance has treated me with the utmost courtesy. I would highly recommend that any business owner give membership in VCA very serious consideration."
"Value Card offers SO much bang for the buck! Where else can you get to spend advertising / marketing dollars only after getting oneclient into your business? I have been a member for over 16 years and seen the growth of this group. VCA has added to my bottom line. As the owner of R salon I can recommend you join and fully utilize all this group has to offer. Have gaps in your day where you could use more sales? Fill em up with barter trade!"

"We have no hesitancy whatsoever in recommending that you consider Value Card Alliance Trade Exchange and Barter. We have used Value Card over the past three years now for everything from getting our house painted (interior and exterior), completely new landscaping, a waterfall, decorative curbing around our property, insulated or attic and added a radiant barrier shield reducing our utility costs. We did electrical work, plumbing, interior decorating, all new blinds for our house and have enjoyed dinning and discovering numerous new restaurants throughout the valley. In addition we used barter to do a complete wedding one of our children which included a caterer, photographer, tuxedo for the wedding party, hair styling for my son's wife and her maids of honor. Recently we even bartered for two motorcycles. Over the years we have bartered well over $85,000 for various goods and services. This represents cash that would have had to come out of pocket, but instead I was able to use barter and minimize my actual cash outlay for everyday household and business expenses. Simply put, barter is just conducting normal day-to-day business without spending cash. It’s like a secondary currency. It is the art of bartering what you have for what you want while conserving cash for the things you can't barter for. For instance have you ever needed some kind of product or service but lacked the resources to purchase it? I'm sure at one time or another, we all have. Bartering is your solution for eliminating this problem. Whenever we are thinking of purchasing a product or in need of a service we always look to see if it is available thought Value Card Alliance Trade Exchange and Barter. If I can't seem to find what I want or need I just pick up the phone or shoot an e-mail to my broker and ask for help. More times than not she is able to assist me in obtaining what I need. Value Card Alliance Trade Exchange and Barter has always been professional, which makes us more than happy to write them this recommendation."

"Value Card is amazing. I have been a member of other barter companies and I can tell you none compare with VCA. When we built our house 5 years ago we used barter instead of cash for Landscaping, garage cabinets, epoxy floors in our garage, we put hard wood floors in 2 of our rooms and we painted our entire house. We also put custom framed mirrors in all of our bathrooms. We not only loved using barter for building our home, but we use it on a daily basis for every day maintenance of our home. We us barter to pay for our landscaper, pool maintenance, and dry cleaning. We also love to use barter for personal maintenance like manicures, pedicures, hair extensions, hair cuts, hair color and tanning. I have been with Value Card for about 7 years and I absolutely love it. Christmas is the best time of all, I try to do all of my Christmas shopping through them. Last year I bought my daughter a beautiful high end guitar at the Christmas show. The most important thing I have ever gotten through VCA is advertising. It really works and I have turned barter dollars into hard cash doing it. The best thing about VCA is the customer service. Any time I need anything they are there to help me. I really can’t think of one thing I have needed that they weren’t able to get for me. If you are considering VCA I promise you it will be one of the best decisions you ever make."

"Dear Value Card,
Thank you so much for your service. I never dreamed I could actually have my home and ofiice cleaned professionally every two weeks and still keep my budget in line. I love you guys! I have my windows done, my lawn serviced, I pick up the phone for a handyman and can also call to receive many different pampering services just for me. I was even able to take the classes I wanted to keep up my massage licsense. Keep up the great work and PS let's get some more great restaurants on line - what a treat, and again, I'm always within my budget!! Thank you!"

"Cave Creek Trailrides joined Value Card Alliance in the fall of 2009. Initially we were very skeptical of the whole barter idea and did not feel that we would use it. We also did not think that it would be good for our business. Out trade broker did not push us but did buy some gift certificates from us to get us started so we had trade money immediately. Over the past year we have become huge fans of Value Card Alliance. Many of the things that I would normally be paying cash, I have been able to trade for. I have traded a car window (my first trade), dental, printing, a video, just to name a few. I have used it primarily for business related expenses that I would normally have to pay cash but have been able to use my trade dollars for instead. Needless to say I LOVE the barter idea and Value Card Alliance has been GREAT to work with. If you can’t find it on the site, just ask your broker and she can usually find it for you. Last year we did about $8,000 worth of trade and hope to do more this season."

"Value Card Alliance has not only served as an integral part for the needs of my surgical practice, but also the needs of my personal life. We have literally save thousands of dollars each year through the use of bartering for services such as home and office janitorial, pest control, and dry cleaning services just to name a few. The Value Card Staff has been exceptional in finding not only existing services, but also new services needed to expand the use of our barter dollars."

"I just wanted everybody to know that I have found working with Value Card Alliance a pleasure. The people are very friendly and helpful every time I have called. They never have made me feel like I am imposing asking if they can find what I am looking for as far as a service within their membership. As far as the other members go, they are very professional and have saved me plenty of money! From the restaurants to a painter, it has been worth my while to be one of their members!"
"Bell Road Business Center considers Value Card Alliance and their staff a vital part of our business. I am able to fill my production schedule with jobs that fit our equipment and for the most part do not require unreasonable due dates. This is work that I ordinarily would not get and the value of the trade dollars is without question. We have been able to save untold dollars using Value Card Alliance Professionals for a myriad of services from office cleaning to tenant improvements in our building. We have used plumbers, electricians, tile professionals and the list is endless. We “value” our Value Card membership."
"I have been a member of Value Card Alliance for a couple of years now and couldn’t be happier with my experience. This is the first barter group I have been a part of where I can actually exchange my trade dollars for services that I legitimately need. The staff is always available to assist, and they actively market my business to ensure that I am constantly accumulating barter dollars. Services that I regularly use are dental, doctor, restaurant, detailing, plumbing and electrical. Don’t hesitate to join, you won’t regret it!"
