BUC Perks

We are in the process of contacting businesses that would like to extend a special discount or opportunity to FSW employees. In turn, we will include them on our BUC Perks page which is visited by our many FSW employees.

If you are an FSW employee and you have had great service at a business or are impressed by their great products, please let us know! Perhaps we can contact them to see if they would like to extend an offer on the BUCS Perks site! You can email the name of the business, a phone number or contact, email address and a short line or two on what you think they can offer our FSW employees. At the end of the year, we will put the names of the individuals that have suggested BUC Perk possibilities that turned out to be a great plus for our employees into a hat and the winner will be recognized and receive a gift for the wonderful BUC Perk contribution! Email those businesses and information to: .
