McMenamins introduces Passport program

Bulletin staff reports /

Frequent McMenamins customers can now earn free food, exclusive merchandise, gift cards and bigger prizes by completing the chain's new Passport loyalty rewards program.

The McMenamins Passport is available for $20, and “cosmic tripsters,” as the company calls its regulars, can get it stamped by visiting the chain's 57 locations in Oregon and Washington or taking part in special activities. Holders of fully stamped Passports can redeem them for three-night stays at McMenamins hotels, a pair of tickets to a concert at Crystal Ballroom or Edgefield, happy-hour-priced drinks for a year or an “honored guest key chain,” which gets you into tours, wine tastings, new properties before they're open and more.

Purchases are not necessary for a stamp, with some exceptions, and there is no time limit for the program.
