Allied Business Network (ABN) is a discount membership organization made up of 138,775 businesses, entrepreneurs, small business owners and individuals. ABN negotiates with national supply and service providers to get our members the best discounts available. Since ABN's prices are negotiated, members are able to save every single day of the year.
ABN helps businesses save money through the power of group buying. Because ABN has thousands of members, national supply and service providers are willing to give considerable discounts. Even if each ABN member only purchases a small amount, the overall quantity is considerable, so every ABN member gets the bulk discount rate.
No fees! No dues! Membership in ABN is 100% FREE. There are never any fees or minimum purchase requirements, only savings. ABN is reimbursed directly from our suppliers and vendors. We're in the business of saving businesses money – it just doesn't make sense to charge to do so.
As much or as little as you like! Even if you only need a single page copied; you can still use ABN's discount. ABN provides the discount through a coupon code, savings program, or exclusive link, but you do your own purchasing; there is no lower limit for smaller purchases and no upper limit for larger ones. No matter how much you spend, you can use ABN's discounts.
Yes! Many ABN members are entrepreneurs and individuals. While ABN mostly focuses on business savings, we also offer great employee and individual discounts too. Just because you don't own a business doesn't mean you can't save with ABN. (Plus you don't have to only make business purchases - you can save on personal purchases too!)
ABN membership is completely free. While you can see ABN's coupons and discount codes without becoming an ABN member, it's better to sign up.
As an ABN member, you'll receive up-to-date information and notifications about our current and future discount programs right in your inbox. ABN members also can enroll in the ABN Affiliate Program and offer ABN's discounts as a customer loyalty package. Plus, ABN business members can be listed in ABN's business directory.
Yes, however ABN does have an approval process for our vendors and service providers. Any business that can accommodate a national customer base is welcome to apply, just see our Vendor Application.
Providing ABN with your basic contact information is required in order to sign up; mostly so you can receive special coupons, discounts and information about any additional ABN benefits.
ABN's welcome emails sometimes can take up to 24 hours to receive. Occasionally ABN emails end up in SPAM and junk mail folders, so make sure you add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your white list.

No. Generally you should not need your ABN membership card in order to use your ABN discounts. It is, however, recommended that you have your ABN membership just in case a vendor asks to see it; particularly when using one of ABN's travel discounts.
You don't! ABN does not have a log in system for our general membership.
There are two ABN programs outside of a general ABN membership that have log ins: ABN's Affiliate Program and the ABN Small Business Articles Blog.
ABN's Affiliate Program: www.abnsave.com/affiliate
ABN Small Business Articles Blog: www.abnsave.com/blog/wp-login.php
Currently ABN does not have a way for members to update member information online. If you'd like to change any of your ABN member information, please contact an ABN member specialist.
ABN's Affiliate program is designed to be a customer loyalty rewards program for ABN members. As such, there is no commission structure for ABN Affiliates. The ABN Affiliate program takes the hassle out of giving back to customers.
Every ABN Affiliate page has a completely customizable header and footer giving you the ability to add your personal touch. While ABN's Affiliate Program does not offer complete white labeling, the customizing options are fairly extensive. View the complete documentation by logging in to your affiliate page at www.abnsave.com/affiliate.
Yes! Every ABN member can contribute to ABN's Small Business Articles Blog. While we're open to promoting ABN member businesses on ABN's Small Business Article Blog, keep in mind, every post is approve by an ABN staff member prior to posting. Sign up and contribute!
Each ABN discount program has different specifics, whether it's linking your current account to our pricing or simply using a coupon or promotional code. All of our program specifics are laid out on our vendor information pages. See all of ABN's discounts by visiting our discount directory.
Some ABN programs, like Hertz, Office Depot and UPS, require additional steps in order to utilize the full discount program. If such steps are necessary, they are completely outlined on each ABN vendor information page. ABN does not complete these steps for you.
NO. ABN members purchase directly from the provider or supplier they're doing business with, so ABN doesn't have ANY access to order information. If you have questions on how to place an order using ABN's discount, please feel free to contact us, but ABN CANNOT access order or reservation information. For questions regarding your orders, contact the provider you purchased through.
No. ABN's Office Depot program is through the Business Solutions Division of Office Depot, so log ins from www.officedepot.com will not work with ABN's program. It is easy to set up a new log in and get ABN's considerable discount: an average of 10% off and up to 85% off everyday office supplies. Just visit Office Depot's ABN page and fill out the one-step registration. Do all of your future purchasing through business.officedepot.com with your new log in. You'll automatically see and get ABN's discounted pricing.
