Oswego YMCA Membership Referral Savings Program
What is the 20/20 Member Referral Program?
The 20/20 Member Referral Program is a way for you to build a community of your friends at the Y. When you refer a friend to the Y both you and your referral buddy receive 20% off of your monthly membership fee for up to three months! All discounts are good for a total of 3 months only, expiring August 31, 2021.
What is a referral buddy?
A referral buddy is the person who is enrolled in the 20/20 Member Referral program with you because:
• He or she joined the Y as result of your referral.
• You joined the Y as a result of his or her referral.
What if I already have a discount applied to my monthly membership fee?
You are welcome to refer new friends to the Y, however, you may not combine the 20/20 Member Referral discount with any other membership rate discount, including discounts through employer, military or essential worker discounts, MFA or through other YMCA promotional programs. The 20% discount associated with the 20/20 Member Referral Program is applied to membership types at their full rate, excluding MFA rates. However, if your current discount is less than 20% off monthly membership dues, you can choose to participate in the 20/20 Member Referral Program instead. We encourage all membership levels to refer a friend, regardless.
How long is my 20% discount good?
As long as your referral buddy (the member that you refer or who referred you) remains an active member in good standing, you will receive your 20% monthly rate discount for the three month maximum, ending August 31, 2021.
Can I refer more than one person?
YES! Up to three people (three new separate memberships) may be connected to your membership as referral buddies. If one friend ever cancels you have two others to move into your primary referral buddy spot. That way, you can continue to receive your referral discount. However, you will only receive the 20% discount for one referral at a time.
What if my referral buddy cancels their membership?
If your referral buddy cancels his or her membership, and you have no other referral buddies on your referral bench, your monthly membership rate will resume at the full-rate for your membership type.
The 20/20 Member Referral Program is contingent upon the active membership status of the person who referred you, or the people that you refer. The more people (up to three separate new members) you have to move into your primary referral buddy spot, the better chance you have at continuing to receive your 20% discount if your current primary referral buddy cancels his/her membership. The more referral buddies you have, the safer your discount is! Remember, you get three referral buddies per membership unit, and a
maximum of 20% off monthly membership. All discounts are good for 3 months only, expiring August 31, 2021.
I am joining from a friend referral. How do I submit my request for my discount?
We are excited you will be joining the Oswego YMCA! You’ll need to stop at our Welcome Center to complete the 20/20 promotional membership form and provide the name of the Oswego Y member who referred you. This will allow you to participate in the Oswego YMCA’s 20/20 Member Referral Program savings.
I am a member who referred a new member. How do I get my discount?
You must stop at the Welcome Center to complete the 20/20 Promotional membership discount form. You will not receive your discount until the new member has submitted their membership form and payment.
When can I expect to see the discount applied to my membership?
Once you have submitted the referral form, please allow five business days for processing.
What payment options are required to participate?
You must have a valid credit card or EFT on file and pay your membership dues by monthly draft in order to participate in the 20/20 Member Referral Program.
What if I referred members in the past?
The 20/20 Member Referral Program is not retroactive to include previous member referrals.
I have an insurance based membership (Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit, Optum, etc.)
No, insurance based memberships (Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit, Optum, AARP, etc.) are free memberships and not eligible to participate in this program.
The Oswego YMCA reserves the right to cancel this promotion due to low participation at any
time. Rates of current financial assistance members will not be further lowered, however we encourage
all members to refer a friend. This offer has no cash value, may not be used with financial assistance
rates lower than the published member-referred rates, and cannot be combined with any other certificate,
voucher, charge item or corporate third party pays, or grandfathered rates. Any future price increases will
be assessed on this reduced base rate.
