Membership Has its Rewards

MoDA Rewards

Join/Renew as an Ambassador or Director's Circle member and receive a Thank You gift of $25 MoDA Rewards to redeem in the Design Store, per year. 

It's simple. Select "Yes, Thank you gift" when joining/renewing at the qualifying membership level. A MoDA Rewards certificate will be mailed to you. It's the easiest way to get rewarded for doing what you already love to at the Design Store

MoDa rewards:

  • May be used for in-store or call-in purchases only. Online purchases do not qualify.
  • Will expire after one year.
  • Must be used in one transaction. No cash back.
  • Members may select "No, Thank you gift" when joining/renewing and claim the $25 charitable tax deduction.

Automatic Monthly Payment Plan

It's secure and hassle free

Partner, Ambassador and Director's Circle members may opt to pay dues in installments, automatically withdrawn from a personal bank account. The options include:

  • Partner - 12 monthly installments of $10 for an annual membership
  • Ambassador - 12 monthly installments of $20 for an annual membership
  • Director's Circle - 12 monthly installments of $83.33 for an annual membership

Best part? You'll no longer have to remember your 'renewal' dates and you can split your dues into easy, manageable payments. Your monthly payment is automatically paid on or about the 10th of each month. You will receive a tax receipt for your monthly automatic membership payments at the end of the calendar year.
