Membership Rules & Guidelines

MEMBERSHIP CARD:  Please carefully read each merchant offering posted on the Kern Value Card website before presenting your membership card and before you make your purchase. Merchant offers may change from time to time without notice. Please note that KVC updates our website daily.

Please do not share your membership card, as it is non-transferable. Please do not present an expired membership card to participating merchants, as it will not be honored. You must have your membership card in your possession and present it in person to the merchant to receive your discount. Some discounts require you to show your KVC membership card and present it along with a printable coupon. You must present your membership card before the bill has been totaled.

TIPPING: Tips for restaurant service should equal 15% to 20% of the total food check before the applicable discount. Please remember that restaurant employees depend on service tips for a large portion of their income.

DINING OUT: When two or more people dine together, the following rules apply:
• No separate checks are allowed. Only one discount per membership card, per
table. There will be one bill for the table.
• Present your membership card when seated and before the bill has been totaled.
• TWO FOR ONE DINING (Buy One, Get One offers) –When ordering two or more
main course entrees or items, restaurant will deduct price of least expensive main
course entree or item.

HOLIDAYS: All major holidays (including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Memorial Day, St. Patrick’s Day, etc.) are excluded unless merchant states otherwise.
