    This year, resolve to be a smarter shopper by shopping with NEA Click & Save, which has saved your fellow members more than $7.3 million so far.
    There’s a good reason NEA Click & Save is so popular: The online shopping program saves NEA members tons of money! Many members especially enjoy using the dining deals offered by Restaurant.com. You can find fantastic discounts at great local restaurants, whether you’re planning a meal out with your family or treating fellow teachers to a special lunch. But did you know that you can buy a wide variety of products through the hundreds of retailers that participate in NEA Click & Save? You can find discounts as well as earn reward points, which you can apply toward future purchases. This year, resolve to shop smarter by putting NEA Click & Save at the top of your shopping list. You’ll be surprised by what you can buy and how much you’ll save. To get you started, we’ve compiled a list of 10 top Click & Save discounts you didn’t know you could get:
    TIME WITH AN ATTORNEY
    One of the benefits of being an NEA member is you get a free hour with a lawyer. An hour doesn't seem like a lot, but it can amount to a lot of money AND a lot can get done inside of an hour. One member actually used it to set up their Last Will and Testament & Power of Attorney. The firm she used was Kreamer Law Firm. She says they were extremely helpful and courteous. They gave her a lot of information on how to save money in their estate planning by instructing her to do some things by personal letters instead of expensive filing processes. The entire process would have cost $850 (counsel, document prep, notary, and filing), but instead it was only $595. They gave her a 30% discount (a pretty good deal).

    WORKOUT GEAR
    A perennial New Year’s resolution is to get fit and lose weight. This year, make that goal fun and inexpensive by purchasing workout gear through NEA Click & Save. Inspire yourself with cute clothes, comfy sneakers, exercise DVDs, resistance bands, heart-rate monitors, yoga mats and more. After you lose weight, come back and get deals on more workout clothes in a smaller size! NEA Click & Save retailers that sell fitness gear include Adidas, Athleta, Footlocker.com, NewBalance.com, Road Runner Sports, The Sports Authority, The North Face, Under Armour and Yoga Clothing. SHOES You’re on your feet most of the day, so you need comfortable shoes that’ll keep you on your toes. Through NEA Click & Save retailers, you can buy sneakers as well as fashionable shoes made by comfort specialists such as Naturalizer, Sofft and Clarks.

Footwear retailers on the NEA Click & Save site include Converse, DSW.com, Famous Footwear, Piperlime, Rockport Shoes, ShoeBuy.com, ShoeMall.com, Shoes.com and Skechers.
    ...

    Our membership year runs from September 1 through August 31.
    Dues are collected monthly from your bank account via Electronic Funds Transfer. The amount deducted will remain the same from month to month but may vary from year to year based on what your annual pay scale.
    Deductions begin in October and end in June. You can choose monthly or bi-monthly.
    As of this writing (2/5/17) dues for esp's (educational support personnel - basically those who are not teachers and who are not working for administration) are calculated as approximately 1.1% of your projected annual salary.
    Then if you decide to support the PAC (political action committee) there would be an additional $17/year. If this is something you do not want, you must opt out of it every year. However, it is a small price to pay for the workers to take our causes to the Iowa legislature (higher wages, secured school funding, etc).
    You can choose to have your dues taken monthly (10 payments starting October, ending in July) 1st of each month 15th of each month 20th of each month or
    Bi-Monthly (20 payments starting October, ending in July) 1st & 15th of each month 5th & 20th of each month

    At this time, once you've become a member, you do not need to renew your membership or your EFT agreement. However, if you for some reason need to cancel your membership, please notify us immediately in writing.
    You can download the membership form (front and back) and EFT authorization form using the links below. Please fill out both forms as completely as you can and send it to Cathie Moratz @ Jordan Creek (or any of our other officers). Upon completion of processing, we will return a copy of your forms to you along with the figures for our monthly dues, as well as an official lighted whistle keychain like the one shown below (aren't you excited?). Please email wdm_esp@yahoo.com if you have any questions.
