One of the most popular “perks” SBEA members have is access to discounts across the city. SBEA provides a listing of merchants willing to provide wonderful discounts as a service to our members that can be accessed on line by visiting this page at https://beatoday.com/merchant-discounts/. Simply present your current SBEA membership card at the listed businesses. We continually look for additional discounts to offer our members.
With the announcement from Spirit a couple of weeks ago, we decided to hold off on sending out the 2020 membership cards and will send them through Spirit mail room sometime in February. Once we get a list from Spirit of our members that got laid off and pull those membership cards, then we will send out the rest. You may continue to use your 2019 membership card until further notice. If you are one of those that are getting laid off you may keep your SBEA membership for up to 4 years from your layoff date. Questions, please call Missy at 522-2996.
