The primary way we deliver upon this mission is with Select membership, a digital membership and concierge service that connects you with exclusive events, savings, and perks at over 1.3 million locations worldwide.
These include 15-40% off the bill or free drinks at globally renowned restaurants and nightlife venues, up to 60% off room rates at over a million properties worldwide, and 15-50% off with hundreds of premier brands including Caraway, Brooks Brothers, Tumi.
Today we serve 10,000+ members and on average, they redeem over 3x the annual fee in benefits each year, with some cohorts redeeming 50x as nearly all SELECT benefits are uncapped and unlimited.
Early in our journey building Select we realized we were collecting a remarkably ambitious community. Members from all industries and career stages are represented from the entry level analyst to the C Suite executive or unicorn founder. As such, we decided to host members-only events and give our remarkable community opportunities to connect.
We also host events during large-scale events that members from all across the country attend such as Miami Art Week, F1, NYFW, LAFW, Miami Swim Week, the various Tech Weeks – Miami, LA, SF, NYC, and some big award show pre-parties like our Emmys Pre Party.
Real humans, all Select employees, here to help with reservations and recommendations whenever you need them.
In 2023 we announced the Select World Elite Mastercard, in partnership with Deserve and Mastercard, to bring our innovative, lifestyle-improving membership to the credit card industry.
Our reasoning enduring the daunting crusade of establishing a Select credit card is simple, we feel the tools that enable our lifestyles should meaningfully improve them.
