Marine Retailers Association of the Americas members saved more than $90,500 in 2012 through the MRAA’s member Rewards Shipping Program.

The program, facilitated by PartnerShip, helped MRAA members who participated save $323.53, on average, more than $20 more than they invested in membership, the MRAA announced.

“This program is one of the foundational benefits that MRAA offers,” MRAA president Matt Gruhn said in a statement. “When we adjusted our membership dues down last year, we chose the $300 mark because our members were already saving an average of $308 through the PartnerShip program. I'm excited to see that the average savings continues to grow and offers our members an even greater return on their dues investment.”

The Top 20 members using the program saved an average of $1,883.47 through the program, and the top three companies saved more than $4,000 each. Eighty-six companies saved more than they invested in their annual dues payment.
