Member Benefits

Membership Discounts

One of the benefits of TES membership is the discounts offered at participating stores and clubs in the scene. The following establishments offer TES discounts. Please present your valid TES membership card to obtain your discount. If you are a leather store, club or scene vendor and wish to offer discounts to TES members, or if you are a member who feels that a certain store or establishment would benefit from participating in this program, please write to us at so you can be added to our growing family of TES-friendly stores and clubs.

Many sister organizations (National Leather Association and Black Rose to name a few) give discounts to TES members at their presentations and events (as we do for their members), If in doubt please ask and always remember to present your TES card.

To maintain good will with the establishments offering the TES discount, please abide by the following rules:

  1. Make sure you have your membership card and it has not expired.
  2. Inform the clerk before they ring up your sale that you are a TES member.
  3. Realize that the discount applies only to you, the card-holder, not to your friends who may be buying at the same time. (Although if your friends are TES members, they’ll get the same discount!)
  4. The discount generally does not apply to sale items.
  5. For online stores, carefully follow the instructions supplied below.
