Most members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) already know that the REALTOR Benefits® Program offers an incredible collection of members-only benefits. What you might not know, however, is that a new benefit—Members’ Gift Galleria—was recently added to the robust lineup of partner programs, offering deep discounts on many of the most popular items available for purchase online.
Members’ Gift Galleria is powered by membermarketplace™, a leading reseller of popular technology and luxury gifts. Check the site often for new products and great deals from a rotating selection of great brands, including:
Electronics such as smartphones, tablets, computers, televisions, home theatre systems, etc., from Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, Beats™, and more
High-end fashion and beauty brands, including Ralph Lauren®, Tumi™, Jimmy Choo™ and Versace®
Small kitchen and home appliances from KitchenAid®, iRobot®, Keurig®, Dyson, Le Creuset®, Vitamix®, etc.
Fitness and outdoor living from Fitbit®, Lifetime® Products, Coleman®, Weber®, and more
The site includes hundreds of specialty items at steeply discounted prices. Some participating manufacturers—including Apple—have agreed to include their entire product lineup.
“There’s no better or more cost-effective source for your gifts or personal purchases,” says Kevin Semcken, CEO of Electronics Row, NAR’s partner in creating Members’ Gift Galleria. “We’re able to leverage the collective purchasing power of NAR’s members to deliver these products at significant savings.”
Unbeatable Prices and Rewards Points
Discounts appear in the form of “Instant NAR Points.” Members also earn rewards points for each and every item they buy, which can be applied to future purchases.
Add up all these savings, and it’s unlikely you’ll find better bottom-line prices for the same products on any public shopping site. Once you join Members’ Gift Galleria, it will become your preferred source for cool gadgets, trending technology, luxury gifts, and more.
Plus, special limited-time promotions are occasionally offered exclusively to NAR members, providing even better prices.
Take advantage of the multiple ways you and your agents can save. Here’s how:
- Agent Incentives. Motivate and reward top-performing agents by purchasing points for their personal Members’ Gift Galleria accounts. For example, tell your agents that the first person with five new listings receives 25,000 points (equal to $250). The winning agent gets to decide whether to cash in their points immediately or wait until they’ve accrued additional points from their own purchases.
- Gifts. Whether you need closing gifts, thank-you gifts, or holiday gifts, it’s easy to select popular items for the health-conscious, the fashionista, the tech-savvy, the neat and tidy, or the early adopter. Take advantage of preferred pricing while also earning points for future purchases.
- Personal Purchases. Sometimes, the best reason to shop at Members’ Gift Galleria is to buy items for yourself. It’s just another way you can leverage your NAR membership, saving money on things you need at home and in the office.
More Benefits for REALTORS®
In addition to superior prices, the points you earn at Members’ Gift Galleria never expire and can be redeemed at any time (no blackouts) and for any product. Plus, when paying for purchases, you can use a combination of points and other payment options. To welcome you to the program, members who create an account will automatically receive 1,000 rewards points. These can be used right away or saved and used toward a future purchase.
Free shipping is available for many items (including all Apple products) and all purchases over $100. Members are also welcome and encouraged to suggest favorite items to add to the store.
