Tamron VIP Club Rewards Loyal Customers

Tamron-Lenses.jpg
Tamron has unveiled a new program -- the Tamron VIP Club -- for its most loyal customers. Set to begin in February 2018, perks include things like $50-100 bonus rebates each year towards a purchase of a new lens, 50% off Tamron event tickets, and up to 20% off non-warranty repairs. To qualify for VIP Club, Tamron lens owners must have purchased AND then registered at least four Tamron lenses through the company's online warranty registration system from May 2011 to January 15, 2018 (certain exclusions apply, see website for rules and details). 

There are actually three VIP Club levels: 

  • Silver for those having registered four purchased lenses

  • Gold for those having registered five purchased lenses

  • Platinum for those having registered six or more purchased lenses. 
And don't worry if you missed out this year, or don't quite make the cut for Platinum Status. Tamron VIP Club membership will be re-evaluated each year and allow new members to join and/or for current members to graduate to Gold or Platinum status.

Pretty sweet deal, if you ask me. How many companies offer you discounts years later on things based on your purchase history? If you're a Tamron lens user, who's bought a few lenses in the last seven years, it's kind of a no-brainer.

Here's Tamron's full press release with specific perks from each club level:
