Cupid Asks Better World Club to Offer Free Associate Memberships

BWC Refuses But Then Relents...Hey, Those Arrows Hurt!

The little dude with wings has been under a lot of pressure this year, and we have taken it upon ourselves to help Cupid spread the love around. In order for us to do this, we need your help!

For you (existing members) or a friend (readers and anyone else), we are offering a free associate membership if you participate between Valentine's Day and the end of the month! That's a $25 value for Basic members and $35 for Premium. How can you make this happen?

1. Log in to Facebook between Valentines day and the 28th of February.
2. Whisper sweet nothings about us (or our Valentines offer) on your Facebook page. Make sure to tag us by typing "@Better World Club" in the post.
3. Call us and let us know you love us as much as we love you! 866-238-1137.

We want to continue to grow, and we believe the best way to do this is for you to want to tell others about us. To make this happen, we can either A) Make costly bulk orders of Love Potion #9 or B) Continue to treat you like family and take care of you when you need us. We'll also continue to offer great promotions like this to encourage supporting businesses you like and whose missions you believe in!

Many outside of the ethanol industry are calling for the end of subsidization.

One of the more bizarre coalitions ever to form in Washington is trying to kill a creature of Washington: corn ethanol.
