Saving Money With An ID NYC Card

Have you applied for an ID NYC card? I encourage everyone to apply for one; it has some great benefits. Here are a few:

Prescription Drug Discounts
Big Apple Rx is the City of New York’s official prescription drug discount card. At almost every pharmacy across New York City, you can simply show the BIN and GRP numbers on the back of your IDNYC card to a pharmacist to receive discounts on your prescription medication. You can expect average discounts of 18% on brand and 55% on generic medications.

Fitness and Health Centers
New York City Parks Department  –  Adults age 25-61 can receive a 10% discount off NYC Park Recreation Center memberships at any of the NYC Parks’ 35 neighborhood recreation centers.
YMCA – With your IDNYC card, you can receive 15% off of family and adult memberships for any new membership at any of the 22 YMCA centers city-wide.

Banks and Credit Unions
With an IDNYC Card, you can open a bank or credit union account at more than a dozen financial institutions including Amalgamated Bank. Amalgamated Bank has 14 branches and over 200 ATMs across the City, and has free checking with no minimum balance requirements.

More Benefits – Additional benefits include discounts for movies, museums, sporting events and more!
