"A school asked us to get them seat cushions and we were unable to find any cushions we liked for the right price. We found out that an ASI membership enables you to buy promotional products at prices we can resell at a profit. We immediately signed up, and were happy to find the huge array of cushions at a very cheap price. We were able to triple our revenue!"
