2019 Premier Membership Changes:
In 2019 we announced a change in the Premier Membership Program. Here are the key points:
- Price went from $250 up to $295, but…
- …Premier Members now received $200 in Quarterly Coupon Codes to use on Shop RI purchases, meaning the Net Cost of Premier Membership became only $95 per year!! And…
- …Premier Members still earned Loyalty Rewards as in the past!!
- (the full Premier Member program is detailed HERE)
With the adjusted program, between the Quarterly Coupon Codes and the Loyalty Rewards, in 2019 most Premier Members got all their membership dues back!!
Many Premier Members actually MADE money in 2019 on the program – receiving much more than they paid in dues!!
2020 ‘Covid’ Premier Membership Update:
For 2020, we were just about to send out the Premier Membership Renewal packet when the Covid Crisis hit. Many of you had to shut down, or severely restrict your business. This obviously had a big financial impact on many of your businesses.
While we at RI cannot fix the Covid crisis, we want to do what we can to help, even if it is just a little bit.
FOR 2020, TO HELP OUR MEMBERS REDUCE THE AFFECTS OF THE COVID CRISIS, WE WILL NOT BE ASKING FOR PREMIER MEMBERSHIP DUES!!
Simply put, if you paid your Premier Membership dues in 2019, you will be considered a Premier Member for 2020 also!
You will receive all the same benefits as 2019, with only 1 exception: we will not be able to offer the Quarterly Coupon Codes for Shop RI. But you WILL still earn Loyalty Rewards on your 2020 purchases!!
We sincerely appreciate our Premier Members, and want to do our small part to help you continue to be profitable, even in these difficult times.
Our business, like most, has been impacted by the virus’ shutdown. One of our installers works new car dealers exclusively and the business he generates is down about 50%. Our other installers work a mix of body shops and new cars. Their business is down by about 30%. I feel sure that members who depend on retail have been severely impacted.
In view of the foregoing, I’d like to express our appreciation for Restylers International waiving the membership fee for 2020. That is very kind of the board to consider the financial impact that COVID has had on their members’ bottom line.
Keep up the good work.
Thank you so much!! We appreciate everything you do for us!
