UPS Savings Program

ICGA Members can save up to 28% on shipping courtesy of UPS.  Covering UPS’s ground, air and international portfolio of services, the UPS Savings Program also includes 10 percent discount on business services at the company’s more than 4,000 The UPS Store locations. 

UPS is in the process of setting up a custom website for ICGA members to enroll in the discount program.  In the meantime, you can get enrolled in the program by logging on to a temporary “generic” webpage at savewithups.com/iowacorn.  You will need to use the Promo Code CEN434.

You can also get an account and connect it to the ICGA discount by following the instructions below:

  1. If you currently do not have an account with UPS, set up your own UPS Shipper account online at ups.com.
  2. Once you have your shipper account created (or if you already have an account with them) call 800.325.7000 to link it to the discount program.
  3. If you are asked for a BID#, simply explain that you are a member of an affiliated association, the Iowa Corn Growers Association.  They should look for Iowa Corn Growers Association on their list of affiliated associations.
  4. Whether you enroll online or by phone, UPS will verify your membership status with us and you will be set.

Ford X-Plan

NCGA participates in Ford’s X-Plan vehicle pricing plan. With a unique NCGA partner code, members can access a special website that gives them a reduced price on dozens of Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles.

Login to fordpartner.com and members can:

  • See and research the full range of vehicles available (very few models are excluded)
  • Determine the special pricing available to members
  • Find factory rebates and other incentives in their area in addition to the special pricing
  • Look up area dealers and search dealer inventories or request quotes over the internet

Once the member has selected a vehicle or found an area dealer to work with, they need to select a unique, member-specific PIN that will identify them as an NCGA member and deserving of the discount. The member will need the PIN to lock in the final, discounted purchase price. Once the member has logged in to fordpartner.com with our partner code—NCGA2—there is a link to the PIN page.
