Members are automatically enrolled based on their yearly (year-to-date) spend at Mint Room and Preto Loft. If you would like to activate a membership and haven’t purchased enough time yet in our studios, you can create future bookings or purchase studio credit, and start benefiting from the discounts and perks!

Once you have reached a yearly (year-to-date) spend that qualifies you for a membership, you will be provided with a coupon code towards your future bookings that will be active as long as you maintain the spend that meets our membership criteria. We check the ongoing yearly spend status every month and will send you a reminder a month prior to your coupon expiring.

**Mint Room studios has the right to update to update yearly spend requirements once a year in January.  If your membership level drops based on the updated levels, your coupon will remain active until March 1st. On March 1st, all previous members will be required to meet new spend requirements to maintain their studio perks.

Facebook Group

The Facebook group hears about it first. You will receive all of our studio details in terms of installations, membership perks as well as events.

All of our membership levels get access to the Facebook group, so please expect a personal invitation from our team once you become a member!
