Q:

If I bought this as a Groupon last year, am I eligible to but it again as a Groupon this year to extend the membership for a year?

Ben B.  asked on  Jan 14, 2013

A:

@ Ben: If you bought this year's groupon offer it would extend your membership another six months but I would suggest contacting the Membership Dept at (212) 769-5606 to discuss the best membership options for you. We can renew Groupon members from last year for a full year at a discounted rate!

Q:

I already have a family membership at the AMNH, expiring in 2014. Can this be purchased to extend that family membership to 2015?

William W.  asked on  Jan 14, 2013

A:

@ William W: If you are a current member of the Museum and purchase this Groupon offer it would extend your membership another six months. However, with this offer you receive Space Show vouchers, which have a $12.50 value each, so it is still a great deal even if you are an existing member!

More Questions and Answers

Q:

My membership expired in September. Can I purchase a family membership using the groupon deal at this time?

Tamara R.  asked on  Jan 19, 2013

A:

I'm very sorry that we were unable to get to your question! Unfortunately, this deal has closed. Please keep an eye out for similar deals we may offer which could fit your needs.

For this Groupon, the Fine Print states that the offer is not valid for existing members or those who have been members in past 6 months. Unfortunately you would not be eligible since you were a member less than 6 months ago.

If you need any further assistance, please reach out to our Customer Service department at support@groupon.com and we'd be happy to help you.

Q:

Can't there be a deal for individual membership? I prefer not to bring anyone with me when I visit, so don't need two tickets to anything.

Kathleen F.  asked on  Jan 18, 2013

A:

@ Kathleen F.: At this time we do not have an Individual membership, however, you could use the 4 IMAX and Live-Animal tickets and your Space Show tickets for yourself throughout the year. If you prefer to visit without buying a membership, General Admission to our Museum is a suggested donation.

Q:

Dual membership is not listed on the AMNH website. When I requested clarification from the AMNH membership office, I was told that "dual" is the same as "individual" and this sounds correct. But the price for an individual membership is $95, not the $120 advertised in the Groupon offering. So while I'm still happy that I used the Groupon, it's not the 50% discount being promoted.

Irwin s.  asked on  Jan 18, 2013

A:

@ Irwin S: The Groupon offer for Dual at $60 includes 2 tickets for the Space Show, valued at $12.40 each. The Dual membership is normally at $95 plus two Space Show tickets at $25 is a total value of $120. This makes the Groupon offer for Dual at $60 a 50% discount!

Hello, I wanted to clarify this offer, the family membership is for entrance to the museum for a year correct? How many tickets for jouney to the stars do you get? I think it is 4...
