Recommend a Friend






 As a way to say THANKS to our members who share their passion and enthusiasm for the Society, we offer the Recommend-a-Friend program!

It's no surprise how the Scotch Malt Whisky Society has grown to where it is today - 26,000 members in 24 branches around the world:  the number one method of growth is word of mouth!

The program is simple:  for every new member who signs up on your recommendation or for every gift membership you buy (up to a maximum of six referrals/gift memberships per membership year), you'll receive $20.00 off the cost of your $125.00 renewal fee.  But as with most things in life there's some fine print involved, so have a read of the details and then raise a glass to good friends and good drams!

1)  A maximum of six new member referrals and/or new member gift memberships will be recognized in each year.  Only one referral per new member can be recognized.  Program does not apply to gifting an existing member's annual renewal dues.

2)  Please ensure the name of the referring member/gift membership purchaser is recorded on the SMWS membership form (if signing up online or by phone please ask the store to record the referring member's name, otherwise it's very difficult for us to track and honour the referral discount).

3)  When your renewal comes due you will receive a notice advising the amount owing.  If you renew on-line via our website or by telephone then you will be charged the full rate of $125.00+tax; we will then immediately refund the difference (plus the appropriate tax amount) to your credit card.  If paying by cheque you will only have to pay the adjusted amount (+ tax) as outlined in your renewal notice.
