Here Is My Coupon is an online service displaying free coupons that are available and accessible to everyone. HIMC also serves as a fundraising platform for college student groups, offering students the opportunity to earn funds for their student organizations while making commission for themselves as sales representatives.
Sales Representatives approach local merchants, discuss the benefits of using HIMC as a merchant, and earn commission for every coupon that they successfully recruit to our site. If a sales rep is also fundraising for a college student group, the group earns $45 per coupon that the sales rep recruits on behalf of the organization. Merchants pay only $180 to have coupon space on our website for an entire year, a one time fee that also comes with a complete business profile.
Therefore, Here Is My Coupon links all different sectors of our community: those who save money with coupons, college student groups and entrepreneurial-minded college students working as sales reps, and, finally, local businesses.
What is an HIMC Sales Representative?
An HIMC sales representative is a college student that recruits coupon spaces to our website by approaching local businesses and sharing the benefits of using Here Is My Coupon. HIMC sales reps earn $30 when the merchant that they have recruited to our website registers, credits them, and pays for a coupon space.
In addition to earning $30 commission, sales reps can also fundraise for college student groups. A Sales Rep can represent a college student group of which he/she is a member, or the Sales Rep can represent a student group at his/her college of which he/she is not a member.
Sales reps fundraising for a student group earn that group $45 when the merchant they have recruited to our website registers, credits the sales rep and the student group, and posts a coupon.
Sales reps also can choose NOT to fundraise for a student organization, and, thus, simply work to earn commission for themselves.
Who Can Become An HIMC Sales Representative?
College students in the U.S. with .edu email addresses can work as HIMC sales reps. Students studying outside of the U.S. may apply to work as a sales rep by emailing us at OOCREP@HIMC.com. If a sales rep is fundraising for a student group of which he/she is a member, he/she may also serve as one of the group's HIMC executives.

A sales rep can fundraise for multiple student groups (whether or not he/she is a member of each), but a sales rep can only serve as an executive in one of the groups.

Thus, our sales cycle encourages our reps to reach out to those merchants they have previously met with – ensuring that the merchants are happy with our services and wish to renew for an additional year. This communication we encourage enables our sales reps to build or improve their interpersonal skills.
Next, those reps that choose to network and market our services also prove more successful than those who do not, as they generate the most leads and sell the most.
Additionally, sales reps that choose to fundraise for a student group build the skills required to discuss the purpose of a fundraiser and to ask for money.
