The Right Card?
The Right Card?
14 days ago 8 comments Categories: City Blogs Tags:

We were going to be in Chicago and if we had any extra time we were overdue for a visit to the Art Institute. In anticipation, we took two membership cards from museums that are participants in a nationwide museum reciprocity program.
When we arrived at the ticket desk, the young man checked the cards and advised that the Art Institute did not honor either of the reciprocity programs but was in a partnership with the Whitney in New York. Problem was that we didn’t have our Whitney membership card with us and despite showing emails from the Whitney and our membership number, without the card he couldn’t extend the courtesy. After twenty minutes and an appeal to a supervisor, we were resolved to pay for admission.
I went up to the young man and presented a Bank of America credit card.
“Bank of America? I can let you in for free.”
I thought he was kidding.
“Bank of America sponsors free admission on the first Sunday of every month.”
We had the right card after all.

    You are in the groove. And what a great reminder to keep up with the benefits of art and credit card membership.

    Amazing. I recall a trip to Florida when we decided to Rent-A-Car and I provided all of my memberships in the various Bar Association’s which offer discounts for car rentals —none of them seemed to have an impact, however in that case the person was trying to work with me and asked if I had a Costco card which I did. That provided the discount.

    The only reason I keep a BofA card is their wonderful "Museums on Us" program!

    In light of Riva's comment, I will also carry a BofA card.

    I'm a mortgage banker with Bank of America, NMLS ID 690784. Glad to be working for a great company that supports the arts!
