Here's the text of an email I received from a club that I belong to.

I received a similar E-mail form my IMBA affiliated club (trail maint. & MTB patrol club).

I don't have a copy of the e-mail at the office but my understanding was that customers would have to provide the name of the club they represent and maybe the club president's name (I forget). Only purchases over $75 were eligable for the discount. A small percentage went to the customer's, IMBA affiliated, club.

In other words, it's not just some coupon code you can plug into the web site when you check out. You may have to provide additional info.

You have to provide that to get the code, but not to redeem it.
