MemberCard City Madison {GIVEAWAY}

If you live in the Madison (or Milwaukee), Wisconsin area, then you'll like this giveaway today! It's for a free MemberCard City card, valued at $29.99, and it's good for one year. You'll get 2-for-1 deals at over 50 restaurants, over 22 entertainment venues, and at hotels. The card can be used over 60 times.

There are deals for the Madison Ballet, Circus World Museum, and for restaurants in Madison, but also ones in Wausau, Stevens Point, etc, so check out their site!

The MemberCardCity story
MemberCard City was created for people and by people who care about supporting their community – whether it’s by dining at local establishments or helping non-profits make a difference. Building on our 23 years of successfully supporting public media stations with MemberCards, we are further expanding the impact of our philanthropic mission with MemberCard City.
What excites us most about the MemberCard City model is that everyone wins. Consumers who purchase the card will have access to 2-for-1 deals at more than 100 local restaurants and attractions. New establishments join the program all the time, and we estimate that you will recoup the cost of the card by dining out just a handful of times. Non-profits will receive up to 25% of the proceeds of every card sold. And participating dining establishments and attractions will get more people in the door with an opportunity to earn repeat business.
MemberCard City is a fresh approach to the daily deals, coupon books and dining discount programs of old. Our philosophy is simple – we believe in supporting local food and culture, and we like to give back. If you share these beliefs, we hope you will partner with us to make your community even more vibrant.
The Causes

MemberCard City is all about local, so they teamed up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County. Not only will MemberCard City bring increased awareness to the organization via press events and social media, MemberCard City will be donating 25% of the proceeds from their online card sales directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County.

I'd love to try the card I received by going to the Madison Children's Museum (because I hear their roof area is phenomenal) and eat somewhere near the square.

To enter: Tell me your favorite restaurant in the Madison/Milwaukee area. Please include your e-mail address in the body of your comment so I can contact you if you win!

Giveaway ends on Friday, October 11, 2013 at 8 p.m. CST. Good luck!

The winner was #4, Erica!!

  1. It's hard to pick just one favorite restaurant in Madison, but my most recent favorite is Merchant, just off the square.

  2. SO COOL! I've never heard of this. I'm sure we'd make good use of something like this. I think my favorite Madison restaurant is Brocach. Great environment, and they have the BEST salmon. Email is

  3. Fabulous. My friends and I make restaurant trips to Madison about 3-4 times a year. My favorite is difficult to pick. Taste of India is a great Indian restaurant. We also love the Great Dane.

  4. I don't know many Madison restaurants off the top of my head, but would love to get to some! Milwaukee faves right now are Odd Duck, Il Mito and Botanas. Just had brunch at Cafe Centraal which was awesome. I was going to suggest it for our next get together.

  5. Great idea! Lombardino's is our fave. With Sardine and the Tornado Room coming in close. Love the local, independent restaurants!
