There are several benefits to membership: These include:
- Discounts on House of Staunton-brand Chess equipment. With a minimum discount of 10% off MSRP, the savings can equal or exceed the membership fee on your first purchase. For example, a Club member will save $199.50 USD off the purchase of a 4.4" Ebony Golden Series Chess set, netting an overall savings of $99.50 after paying for the membership fee. In addition, that club member will be entitled to continue to enjoy those savings for the rest of his life.
- The Club Membership Discount CAN be combined with other discounts and promotions!
- Significant discounts on close-out House of Staunton-brand Chess Equipment.
- Early notice on sets about to be retired. Occasionally, the House of Staunton does discontinue lines of Chessmen. Examples of this include the Liberty Series, the Reykjavik '72 Series and the Windsor Series Chess Sets. When these items are discontinued, they are offered at a tremendous discount off their MSRP. Our House of Staunton Collector's Club members receive advance notification about these soon-to-be discontinued items, insuring that they will be first in line to take advantage of those savings.
- Early notice on sets about to be introduced. Each year, the House of Staunton introduces between 3-5 new lines of limited edition Chessmen. All of these limited edition series come with their own unique production number that distinguishes their set from the others produced. In terms of collectability, the lower the production number, the more collectable the item is. Our House of Staunton Collector's Club members receive advance notification about these soon-to-be released items, insuring that they will be first in line to make a purchase and secure the lowest production number possible. .
