Coming to the Y is better with friends. And, now we made it even better with our 20/20 Membership Program.
As an incentive for becoming a partner in health and referring a member to the Y, both you and the new member receive a 20% savings on your membership. You both continue to receive the 20% savings as long as you both remain members.
Why did you create the 20/20 Membership Program?
Individuals who choose to live a healthier lifestyle are more successful when behavior change is done with friends or family. Help us make our community healthier by inviting others to join you at the Y.
Who is eligible for the 20/20 Membership Program?
All Young Adult, Adult and Senior members at the YMCA of Montclair are eligible to participate in the 20/20 Membership Program.
What if I pay for my membership annually?
To receive the 20/20 Membership Program 20% monthly discount, you will need to convert to a monthly bank or credit card draft.
Will the 20/20 Membership Program rate ever increase?
If there are future membership rate increases, the membership rate will reflect a 20% savings on the current standard membership rate.
I’m joining the Y as a new member in the 20/20 Membership Program. Do I have to pay a joining fee?
Yes, new members joining through the 20/20 Membership Program are subject to the standard joining fee.
When will my 20% monthly discount go into effect?
Your 20% monthly discount will take effect on the 15th of the next month after your friend joins. Your friend will receive the 20% monthly discount immediately at sign up.
I’m currently receiving financial assistance from the Y or an insurance program. Can I refer a friend for this program?
Yes. Should your friend decide to join, they will receive the 20/20 Membership Program rate. Your membership will remain at your current rate or be reduced to the 20/20 Membership Program rate, whichever savings is greater.
If I invite multiple friends, do I receive additional rate reductions for each friend that joins?
Members’ monthly dues will only be reduced by 20%, regardless of how many friends join. Having multiple friends on your referral list helps to ensure you keep your 20% monthly discount in the event one of your friends cancels their membership.
Since my friend is linked to my account, am I financially obligated if they don’t pay?
No. However, if your friend’s membership is not in good standing, you will lose your 20% monthly discount if you are unable to recruit a new friend within 30 days.
What happens if my friend cancels their membership?
You will have 30 days to recruit a new friend to remain in the 20/20 Membership Program and maintain your 20% monthly discount. If you are not able to confirm a new referral within 30 days, your rate will revert to your original monthly rate.
What if my friend’s membership goes on hold?
If one member goes on hold, both members will remain in the 20/20 Membership Program for up to six months. If the member on hold remains on hold for longer than six months, the other member will need to recruit a new friend to continue to receive the 20% monthly discount.
Before the program began, I referred someone to join the Y. Can I receive a rate reduction based on their membership?
No. The 20/20 Membership Program rate reduction is only available to members referring new members after June 1, 2017.
