Cost to sponsor a flash is 1000 pesos.)


     Your VIP Club has been on the road. We're back and gearing up for Summertime, yet even during these sleepy times in San Miguel, when parking spots are abundant and the pace is easy-going, Your Club is continually ferreting and searching, like bomb-sniffing hounds seeking beneficial deals for our membership while publicizing associated businesses!

     In 13 years Your Club has expanded from primarily a restaurant discount card to a diverse money-saving enterprise. Your Club continues to make alliances, not only with restaurants, but other providers of goods and services the membership might employ. In some instances, the savings added up can pay members' dues for the full year, sometimes with just one purchase.

    Our aim is to have the very best local discount club in the entire world and to treat our membership like they are very best of members in any club, anywhere!

    Your Club sincerely thanks all of you, present and pass members, for enabling the VIP Club to grow and thrive for the past 13 years.

     "Muchas gracias!" to all members and associated business.
