Q:

I may have missed this, but how do I get the membership after I buy it? Do I have to bring it to the museum? Go to the website? Is something automatically mailed to me?

Patrick S.  asked on  Dec 3, 2011

A:

Hi Patrick. You can redeem your membership by emailing MCAGroupon@mcachicago.org, at the museum with a print-out of your Groupon, or by calling 312.397.4030. You will need to provide your 8 digit Groupon code (located on the Groupon) as well as your full contact information and complete address. We'll activate your membership shortly after, but it can take about 2-4 weeks for you to receive your permanent membership cards by mail. -Pablo, Membership

Hello again Isabel! Even though this deal is technically intended for new membership, the MCA will extend this offer to all past MCA members who have a lapsed membership of one year or more. -Stephanie, Membership
