FAQ - Digital Membership Cards

Q. How do I add the membership card to my iPhone?
A. Access the email from your smartphone and click the “Download” button, then click “Add to Wallet” and “Add.” The card will automatically go to your iPhone’s Apple Wallet. It can be accessed in Apple Wallet at any time.

Q. How do I add the membership card to my Android phone?
A. Android users need to download Wallet Passes from Google Play. After you have the app, access the membership email from your smartphone and click “Download,” and the card will automatically go to your Wallet Passes app, where it can be accessed at any time.

As always, we will request a corresponding photo ID upon entry to ensure that only named members are using your digital card.
