Small Card, BIG Results. The Major Saver 2017 card is now here and ready for sale beginning March 17!

The Merrillville Education Foundation is once again excited to be offering Major Saver discount cards for sale through the Merrillville schools. Conveniently keep the mini card on your keychain or use the Major Saver app for Android or iOS devices so you can always take full advantage of all of the great discounts the card offers!

Students in the district will be selling $10 cards with 20 Buy-One-Get-One Free offers starting Friday, March 17th thru Tuesday, March 28th.

Here are several reasons why you want to get one or more today:

  • Proceeds from the sale of Major Saver cards directly support innovative educational opportunities for your child at his/her school.
  • Since its inception in 2002, the Merrillville Education Foundation has given over $309,000 to the Merrillville Schools in the form of grants and Major Saver fundraising.
  • All of the money generated from this fundraiser goes back to supporting MEF programs for Merrillville Community School Corporation children.
  • The schools will be able to fund innovative and creative projects in the classroom and school, and allow students to have broad educational experiences with these additional Major Saver funds.

How do I get one? 

  1. Physical Card: Follow the instructions on the packet that came home with your child.  Remember, besides the selling of cards by your student, Major Saver cards can also be purchased online at  The online sale can be credited back to a particular student and school.  All cards purchased online will be mailed directly to the customer.
  2. Phone or Tablet App: Major Saver cards can also be purchased, and credited to a student, through the Major Saver App.  Once the free app is downloaded to an Android or iOS device, buyers can choose a Major Saver card through the “buy cards” tab on the app.  Once the buyer completes the transaction the offers will be stored in the Major Saver App.  Patrons can then redeem offers directly from the app and do not need a physical card.

Major Saver stresses safe selling and discourages door to door campaigning. The company encourages students to sell to family members, church patrons, neighbors, or other adults the family may know; and to always make sure their parents are involved.

Please consider purchasing one or more Major Saver cards this year to help benefit the Merrillville Education Foundation and the students within the district.
