    I know this store .
    Only use it for Nitrox fills ,nice setup ,done a few dives from their boat on the ex HMAS Brisbane.

    Only bought two things there this last year, a computer and gloves, so no membership for me.
    It's not my thing anyway.

    Just this past week.

    But they have been serving Thanksgiving dinner for years and years now.

    They also have fill cards with a slight reduction in the price per/ft on nitrox.

    Some shops I’v seen have started the fidelity points cards. Kind of like every other store where you gets points for your purchases that you can apply on your next visite. Some offer a fill card so you pay less than if you paid only one fill at a time.

    The quarry that I frequent offers a 12-month membership. The basic tier at $250 gets you free admission. The mid-level tier at $350 gets you free admission, two air fills per day, and a discounted rate of $8 for a nitrox fill. The primo tiers at $500 and $750 get you the same plus 10% discounts on rentals and purchases, free save-a-dive doodads, and unlimited tent- or RV-camping privileges, respectively.

    I do the mid-level tier, and it cuts my costs immensely. I end up paying roughly ten bucks for a day of diving, not counting deco gas fills.

    Just air card... by 20x air fills at a time and get it for $3.75/fill. From 40 cf to 120 cf, up to 3442 psi... not great but not bad. I'll probably do 100 fills a year if I'm not traveling... wish I could get a better deal nearby though.

    I only dream of getting fills this cheap, and you wish you could get a better deal ! You are joking, sure you are,no?
    You don't want to know what we are charged for fills where I live, and Nitrox is .....:spend:
