UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO RISING COSTS, THE MEMBERCARD PROGRAM HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED AS OF 12/31/11. IF YOU RECEIVED A MEMBERCARD BEFORE THEN, HOWEVER, IT IS STILL VALID UNTIL THE EXPIRATION DATE ON THE CARD.
What is the WNKU MemberCard?
The MemberCard is a benefit exclusive to public broadcasting stations which offers contributing members two-for-one entrees at more than 150 restaurants in the Tri-state area and more than 8,800 restaurants across the country. In addition, the card entitles you to arts, attractions, lodging, and shopping discounts.
How can I find out which restaurants/organizations currently participate, and how often is the list updated?
You will receive a directory of participants when you receive your MemberCard. The list of restaurants and other benefit providers is regularly updated at MemberCard.com. The web site is updated several times each week to give you the most current listing of the participating restaurants and other organizations. You may also call Member Benefits, Inc. toll-free at 1-888-727-4411. Both local and—for an additional processing fee—national benefits are available to you as a WNKU MemberCard holder. Procedures for traveling with your MemberCard are explained below.
For how long is the card valid?
The card is valid for one year, and an expiration date is embossed on each card. You may use the MemberCard one time during the year at each participating restaurant listed in the directory. If you are currently a WNKU member and renew your WNKU membership with a gift of at least $75, you will continue to receive the card by mail upon receipt of your contribution.
How does the MemberCard work at a restaurant?
Order at least two entrees in a participating restaurant, and the least expensive entree is deducted from your bill. Simply present a valid MemberCard when paying your check, and the restaurant staff will mark out its number on the back of your card. Check the restaurant listings in your directory for any restrictions on each restaurant’s offer.
Is the MemberCard honored on holidays or in addition to other specials?
In most cases, no. The MemberCard is not valid on major American and Canadian holidays, or in conjunction with other discounts such as children’s plates or appetizers, or in conjunction with other specials offered.
How do I take advantage of restaurants or other benefits outside of my station’s area?
Check the map at MemberCard.com for information on the latest MemberCard locations. To enjoy MemberCard benefits outside of WNKU’s listening area, you must have a special travel card that is valid at your destination. Call 1 (800) 423-7645 to order your Travel Pack, or order online at MemberCard.com. Member Benefits, Inc. will bill you $6.75 for each card to cover the cost of the card’s production, a directory for your destination, and shipping.
