Is there a discount for not being a member of a discount club?

Dear Hotel Guests,

We offer discounted rates to certain membership clubs and other groups, like AAA and AARP. Please do not book these rates if you are not a member.

If you book a Government rate “because it’s the cheapest” and then show up with your spouse and children, we will not give you that rate. Especially when you claim that “it doesn’t say I have to be a government employee,” and you are unable to provide documentation that you are actually there for government work.

If you book an AARP rate, because your great grandma has AARP, but you look barely old enough to legally buy cigarettes, we will not give you that rate. Unless gram is there to check you into the room, you’re going to have to shell out an extra nine dollars.

We don’t give out discounted rates just for fun. Please be able to show us you are a current member of said groups. If your AAA card expired 14 years ago, please don’t plan on a discount.

  1. What?!? I have to actually PROVE I'm that age or belong to that group? But-but-but--that's not fair! We should all get it cheaper! It's my right, says in the Constitution all men are created equal so we should all get the same rates! [/tongue-in-cheek]
