Apr 15 2019

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

Hundreds of teams have become pros at raising BIG on FlipGive, we always get so many questions about how they do it. How can a team raise $3000 in a month? There is so much you can use FlipGive for, but let’s just start with the basics for today. Did you know that you could raise up to $4,200 a year when you bring at least 10 families on board with your team’s regular spending only? We are talking about things your team already spends money on like Gas to drive the kids to games, hotels bookings for tournaments and outings with the team. There is no magic to it, commit to the 3 things on this list and your team is set to win at earning cash like a pro. Bye Bye funky fundraisers, Hello FlipGive.


Driven to Play

Parents, you know the drill. If you have a car, driving the kids to their games - be it just your own children, or a team carpool - will eventually fall on your shoulders. While we all love and cherish the endless hours spent in the car, they cost us big:  the average driver fills up about 13 gallons of gas a week, that is a total of about 676 gallons of gas a year. If you use a Shell or Exxon Mobil fuel Gift Card, one person can earn $20 for their team just by driving as they usually do for the year. Combine that with a 3-day Hertz or Enterprise car rental for your away games, and earn up to $7 extra per game!

Driven to Play

Away Game Ready

We all know one of the best parts of being a sports parent is attending games away from home. These are great moments to spend with the team and an amazing way for the kids to bond. After an exhausting day of play, a 5+ hour drive back home may not seem worth it. National competitions may even require your team to travel even further, making a hotel a necessity. A $500 per family budget for a room for 2 nights at Expedia - assuming you'll need one ten times a year - can net you $250 per family! That’s minimum $2500 when you all do it together
