KUSA Cash Mob

Frank and Corina of The Morning Buzz on KUSA FM100 have started a Mob.  It’s the KUSA Cash Mob… no, it’s not a group of gangsters, but a group of people who are passionate about stimulating the local economy and supporting local businesses.

Cash Mobbing plays on the idea of a Flash Mob – but rather than performing a dance or song, the group of Cash-Mobbers flood local, independent businesses with $20 in hand, and spend it on desired merchandise.

 Cash mobs are beginning all over the country and now Price, Utah is on the National Cash Mob website at www.cashmob.com.

Each Cash Mob may put their own twist on the rules to make it more fun and the KUSA Cash Mob has certainly done that! When you join the KUSA Cash Mob, you are given your own Mobster name, which allows you certain benefits with the radio station, such as more prizes and games for Mob Members only.  KUSA occasionally gives away “Mob Money” on air, which is a gift certificate that the winner can use to buy merchandise at a Cash Mob location during a Mob event.

Each month a local business is chosen as a Cash Mob location.  The location remains a secret until the Mob takes place, but Mobbers are instructed to meet at a certain time and place just before the event. “We don’t want people to decide not to come to an event because they think they won’t find anything they want to buy there,” explains Corina. “One of the things we want to accomplish with this, is to show people the variety of merchandise available at different local businesses that they wouldn’t normally visit.”

“We realize that one Cash Mob Event isn’t going to save a business that is close to going out of business,” says Frank, “but we’re hoping to change the way people think about shopping locally in comparison to leaving town and therefore help all local businesses in the long run.”

To join the KUSA Cash Mob, call KUSA at 637-1080 or visit their website at www.gofm100.com.

If you want to check out the very first Cash Mob event before you join, KUSA invites you to join them December 19th at 5:30 PM. В Mobbers will park their vehicles on 7th East between Big Moes and Key Bank and the Mob location will be disclosed at that time.

    Thanks E-TV! We would love more members!

    Our first Cash Mob was last night at Apple Country Crafts and All Scrapped Up! It was awesome! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us!

    There is one small change in the rules… we are not exchanging members money for “Mob Money.” However, we do still give “Mob Money” away on air that members can use at a Cash Mob Event (At our expense.)
