What is The Value Connection?
Simply put, "The Value Connection" is a way for you to save money on items or services you buy retail all the time. But you won't pay retail with The Value Connection. We offer goods and services from Central Minnesota businesses at a deep discount to you. Typically 20-30%. All you have to do is buy a merchandise or service certificate through the Value Connection and save, save, save! And you can save a number of ways, both online and off-line.
