Re:Member is a series of helpful tips and reminders for Peg City Car Co-op members.
This month’s topic: Member perks!
When you buy a share and become a Member of Peg City Car Co-op, not only do you benefit from perks that don’t apply to your Casual driver friends, you also receive special discounts with local partners, opportunities to earn free driving credits, and even free concert tickets!
What KIND of perks, you ask? We’ll break it down for you:
• Free overnight hours, between midnight and 7AM.
• A daily rate cap. Members pay for a maximum of 8 hours, everyday. That means if you book for 10, 12, or even 23 1/2 hours, you’ll only pay for 8, plus your kilometres driven.
• Low hourly rate. Casual drivers pay $9/hr. Members only pay $4.85/hr. (Member Plus pay even less, at $2.85/hr!)
• Additional drivers. Members can add up to 4 more drivers to their account.
• Roaming options. If you need to use a car while you’re in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, or Ottawa and Kingston, Ontario, look into our reciprocal agreements with HOURCAR and VRTUCAR!
• Voting rights. By becoming a share-holding member, you get a say in how your carshare thrives. Our next AGM is coming up in the new year.
What about, you know, FUN perks?
• Earn driving credits through our Shop Local program! These cards can be found in each vehicle, or at our participating businesses. Each time you visit one of our Shop Local partners and make a purchase – maybe a coffee at Parlour or a game night at Across the Board – you receive a stamp. Each month, you can turn in one of those full cards to redeem $10 driving credit.
If you are a local business, and you’d like to join our Shop Local program, we would love to send our members your way! We’ll provide you with a stamp and stamp cards. Get in touch with us at [email protected]
• Want to earn even more credits? Join our Ambassador Program. Members can earn up to $40 in driving credits per month by sharing photos of their trips on social media using a Peg City car.
• Free concert tickets. You read that right! The West End Cultural Centre has offered up tickets for us to give away to our members. We post a monthly contest across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – all you have to do is be a share-holding member, and comment to be entered to win! They even hold a VIP parking spot for you at the WECC. Past ticket giveaways have included live shows from Carly Dow, and Deep Dark Woods, and Al Simmons.
• Special discounts. Frogbox delivers eco-friendly storage boxes. You pack and move, and then they pick them up! Peg City members receive $25 off their minimum $100 order with FROGBOX. If you’re in need of a car rental, Winnipeg U-Drive offers our members %15 off Regular Rates (not applicable on weekend rates or specials.)
