    Last year we offered free fall aeration to new customers only if they signed up by April 1st.Got 3 or 4 out of it.I wanted to make sure it was a end of season service so they would not get something free and then quit.

    I'm thinking about putting on the bottom of my flyers, show this, or call before blah blah and get 10$'s off first cut or somthing.

    I'm printing flyers as I type. I put a $5.00 off coupon on my flyers last year and am doing the same thing this year. It's for the first cut or whenever they would like to use it. It worked pretty well - I would recommend it. I get names and addresses of neighborhoods that i want to cut off of the internet and mail them.

    I think you would be better off in the long run just doing fliers. I have heard alot of people here try the coupons in the vaule pacs and never had much luck
