The Young Men's Christian Association frequently offers membership promotions, both seasonal and ongoing. Although the YMCA is a Switzerland-based international organization, each one of the nearly 2,700 YMCAs scattered throughout the United States conducts its own unique set of promotions.
Each YMCA location maintains its own website, where promotional information is typically available under "Membership." The YMCA of the North Shore in Massachusetts runs several continuous promotions at each of its seven locations. For example, the North Shore YMCA offers a 10 percent discount to active-duty personnel and their families, as of 2015. "Try the Y Tuesdays," a seasonal promotion, allows the public to sample all of the North Shore YMCA's services for free during Tuesdays in August. Each individual or family can only sample free services for one Tuesday during August.
Similarly, the YMCAs of San Diego County offer a free day each Friday in July. Freebie Fun Fridays, as the YMCA calls the promotion, is open to the entire local community, including paying members, their families, friends and non-paying members. There is no limit on the amount of free Fridays of which customers can take advantage.
In Florida, employees of businesses that are corporate partners of the Tampa Bay area YMCAs join the organization for free or receive up to $100 off, a 10 percent discount on any membership type, and access to all Tampa Bay-area YMCAs, facilities and classes.
