Thank you for being a member of KQED and welcome to KQED Perks!

Your financial support of KQED helps us to provide the public media service you have come to expect in our community. KQED Perks is one way of saying "Thank you" for your support. We hope you enjoy the many discounts and special offers from the participating restaurants, retailers, arts organizations and other businesses and organizations. Like you, the businesses and organizations that participate in KQED Perks are showing their support for KQED by extending these opportunities to you.

Getting Started

To get started, you can use our map search tool. This allows you to easily search for participants and see where they are located. Or view a complete list of participants. Either way, you'll find a description of the discount being offered to members. You can also look for our KQED Perks window sticker displayed at participating business and organizations.

Receiving your discount is simple: when you visit the business or organization, show your KQED Member Card. See the usage guidelines below for more details.

Additional Benefits

We'll continue to add participants so check our site often for new discounts. The best part: the discounts are available on an ongoing basis -- these aren't one-time-only offers! Plus, each month you'll find special Benefit of the Month offers. You can also watch for discount offers in KQED's newsletter QED Up or On Q magazine.

To maintain your benefits, be sure to keep your membership current by renewing your membership prior to the expiration date on your card. A new card will be sent with your acknowledgement letter within 4-6 weeks after you renew.
