Website Purpose and Intent:
To provide active, reserve, national guard, retired service members, and their dependents with a tool that can provide valuable cost savings information from local brick and mortar stores (later we will include online stores) in their area (or areas they are traveling to) that offer military discounts. Target audience would be military and their dependents.
Currently, there are no comprehensive websites that offer a tool of this nature. While one can find many websites that offer a listing of stores and online sites that offer discounts to military members none of them offer the capabilities that will be incorporated in the my website. Additionally, not all stores of the same name (e.g. Home Depot) provide military discounts at all of their locations. This website would allow a member to know which stores offer what.
The registered user would be able to come to the website and find a store in his/her area (or area they are traveling to) that caters to the military by offering a military discount of some form (usually a discount) for wares or services. The user would also be able to submit a form requesting that a local company/service in their area offers a military discount. I would be the approving authority on all additions to the database. The user would also be able to submit a form for the removal of a store that is already in the database that denied them a military discount (falsie). I would be the approval on falsies.
The website needs the following capabilities:
(optional) Interactive drill-down map of the US to city or town
User form for adding/requesting removal of stores in their area (and thus creating the database and helping other military members). (registered users only)
Registration/verification via email (email must goto a .mil email account in order to be verified and become a registered user)
Searchable database of stores by city, state, category, zip, or store name (registered users only)
Forum/discussion area (registered users only)
Ability to accept PayPal donations
Database can be of whatever type you want but should have the following fields:
Business Name,Category,Address,City,State,Zip Code,Phone#,Discount amount (e.g. 10%), verification, falsies, notes
Verification field is a yes/no
Falsies are when a user requests a business be removed because that store did not offer a military discount, value is 1,2, or 3. Businesses will be removed from database after 3 falsies.
Bottom line is that I want a website that is easy to use from both sides. Easy for the registered user to find the store they want in thier area and easy for me maintain (verifying the information the user submits). Graphic appeal, while important, is not the main focus. The main focus is functionality, we can worry about asthetics later.
I eagerly await your bid.
