CubCard, like ClassPass but for your kiddos, is giving away free classes this week to try out their new offering! From swimclasses at Menlo Swim and Sport to sessions at Play! Los Altos or music classes at Day One Baby, it seems the pass covers all of our go to places, and for just $99/month for 8 classes that can be split between any of your kiddos!
I haven't tried the service yet, but do have to give props to the team for quick customer service- when I received the email about the launch, I had a few questions and Dan from CubCarb responded very quickly, providing me answers to everything I inquired about. I'll hopefully try out the service this afternoon when Graceface wakes up (we are transitioning from 2 naps to 1 this week... wish us luck!)
The Good: User interface is awesome and easy to use, with classes covered all around our area from Menlo Park to Saratoga. Gymboree, MyGym and other classes tend to be about $80/month for 1x a week classes - so this is a good value. Especially awesome in summer when you travel and may not want to commit to a monthly schedule. I also love that the 8 classes can be shared between my two girls as opposed to buying two cards.
The "Room for Improvement": My marketing background gets a bit agitated when in their tagline they use the phrasing of "One Card, unlimited possibilities" to describe the offering - when you don't get unlimited classes for the $99, just 8. Most places like MyGym offer a free first class to check it out, so if you haven't used that option, this pass may not make the most sense quite yet.
All-in-all excited to tell my fellow bay area parent friends about the new cub in town! The mommy market is ripe for disruption and an offering like this is bound to do well - especially this time of year! Coupled with a great user interface, I can't wait to follow the continued success of the CubCard team as they expand markets and add more businesses. If you check it out, let me know your thoughts!!!
