10% Discounts

Members are eligible to receive discounts on any membership, locker rental, or towel service purchase.  Only one discount may be applied per purchase (cannot stack - maximum of 10% off).  Below are the currently offered discounts:

Golden Buckeye

All Ohioans age 60 or older, as well as adults age 18-59 who have disabilities as defined by Social Security, are eligible for a free Golden Buckeye card.

How to Get a Card - Ohio residents who hold current Ohio Driver Licenses or State ID cards automatically receive their Golden Buckeye cards in the month of their 60th birthdays. Individuals who do not have a current license or State ID, as well as people under age 60 who are eligible due to disability, or who otherwise do not receive their card automatically, may apply for a card at most public libraries and senior centers. Due to ID, age and disability (when appropriate) verification requirements, you cannot apply for a Golden Buckeye card online or by phone.

Military Personnel

All active, reserve, guard and veteran military personnel and their immediate family qualify for this discount.  Valid identification card required at the time of purchase.  Military personnel and their immediate family also receive free access to the SRWC on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
