10/10 Member Referral Program
What’s better than 10% OFF at the Y?
SHARING 10% OFF WITH A FRIEND . . . OR TWO!
When your friend joins the Y, you AND your friend earn 10% OFF membership for as long as you both are members.
• Invite your friend to join the Y.
• Complete the referral card and have your friend return it to the membership desk at any YMCA of Greater Grand Rapids branch at the time they join.
• Once a friend joins, you AND your friend receive 10% OFF monthly discount for as long as you both are members.
• Should one of you leave the Y, the other will have 30 days to find a new referral friend and continue to receive the discount. You can refer up to four friends to the 10/10 Member Referral Program. Having multiple friends on your referral list helps to ensure you keep your 10% monthly discount in the event one of your friends leaves the Y.
