Since we don't use advertising contracts, we’ve come up with a way to reward those who run ads or inserts with us month after month. It is a bit like the frequent flyer programs the airlines offer. We call it our Frequent Advertiser Bonus (FAB) Program. Thanks to our FAB program, as of March 2015, OCN advertisers had saved over $35,000 on advertising!

Each time you pay promptly* for ad space or inserts, we credit up to 10% of your payment** to your FAB account balance. The percentage that applies is based on your current FAB account balance. The greater your FAB account balance, the greater the percentage that applies. At any point, you can use all or part of your FAB account balance to reduce the cost of an ad or insert you want to run. Just let us know when you reserve the ad space how much from your FAB account you want to use toward the cost of the ad.

All new advertisers start with FAB account balances of zero. Here is how the subsequent reward is calculated:

FAB Account Balance

Reward Earned

$0 - $9.99

2%

$10 - $34.99

5%

$35 or more

10%

An example: Suppose you are a new advertiser and you run a $50 ad. When you pay* for that ad, $1 (2% of $50) is credited to your FAB account. You can use that to reduce the cost of running another $50 ad to $49. That would return your FAB account balance to zero. Alternatively, you can leave your rewards in your FAB account. Whenever your FAB balance is between $10 and $34.99 then 5% of your subsequent payments will be added to your FAB account. As long as your FAB account balance is $35 or more, you will be credited 10% on your ad payments**.

To maximize your FAB rewards: Pay promptly and pay by check or money order. Since FAB rewards are not credited for late payments, it pays to send in your payment right away when you receive our invoice. FAB rewards are reduced by subtracting any fees associated with the payment including PayPal fees for credit or debit card payments. Paying by check or money order avoids those fees and means more of your payment earns FAB rewards.

All our advertisers are automatically enrolled in the program. You don’t have to do anything except advertise in OCN. The more you advertise, the more you save.

FAB account balances never expire, are not transferable or refundable, and have no cash value. Unpaid ad costs, late fees, and other amounts due may be deducted from the advertiser's FAB account balance. OCN reserves the right to modify or cancel the program without notice at any time.

*FAB rewards are not credited for late payments; that is, payments received after the publication date of the next issue after the issue that carried your ad or insert. Rewards are also not credited for payments under our double-up and catch-up program for those with significant outstanding balances.

**FAB rewards are reduced by subtracting any fees associated with the payment including PayPal fees. If you have a PayPal account, for amounts of $162 or more, using a PayPal money transfer or eCheck to pay for your OCN advertising will reduce the associated PayPal fees and will result in greater FAB rewards that you can redeem to reduce the cost of future OCN advertising.
