Prices are skyrocketing. Your favorite reposado tequila at your favorite watering hole “ain’t under 100 pesos no more!” Your favorite cut of steak is likely to be well over 400 pesos at better restaurants. One steakhouse in centro has almost a dozen entrees on its menu over 1000 pesos, an unfathomable price for a San Miguel meal in the recent past. Propane gas delivery as zoomed to over 14 pesos a litro! Members get 65 centavos off each litro.
What more can we say? Possessing a VIP Club Card saves the cardholder money and develops strong relationships between members and local business people. Business people love steady customers.
Still, too many members believe Your Club is strictly a restaurant discount card. We urge members to go to www.vipsanmiguel.com/ and click on “Other Discounts” and “Health & Beauty” to see the almost 100 other businesses and services offereing cardholders strong and steep discounts.
