A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
MFG is a geo located directory that helps families find kid-friendly businesses such as restaurants, lodging, entertainment, shopping, and services. We are also a licensed travel agency.
The MFG Membership Card allow families to receive exclusive offers / discounts at participating kid-friendly businesses in your local area. The offers and discounts are like coupons, but the difference is that you can redeem the discounts again, and again! It is a “show and save” card. Each business owner determines their offer/discount. The offers may change monthly, seasonally…it is up to each business. Plus, new businesses and discounts are being added daily! Also, there is no coupon book to carry around. All the offers/discounts will be posted on our website. So, simply show your membership card and receive the discount! To view participating businesses visit our homepage – CLICK HERE. REMEMBER – all discounts or special offers are designed for the kids or family!
There will also be “cash back” when they book their hotel stays, car rentals, or international flights with us directly (with participating businesses). A list of these businesses coming soon.
