Thanks to great work by Kelly and the KCBS office the Restaurant Depot pass program has been reinstated. Thanks for your patience while this issue was being resolved.

Great news. I was heading there tomorrow for a catering job. Now we can use our pass for family stuff. Is it a one time use or can you get a new pass each time you visit?

Fantastic! I've been checking the KCBS site nearly every night, so I'm glad to see this here.

I can't see it be anything other than a win for everyone. I have money. I want to spend it on brisket. Done... I'm going there this weekend.

Thank you to the KCBS. I've been thinking about joining and with this news i will definitely jump in.

good question above, is this a one time use or does it provide access during the life of the membership? I assume the latter.

According to Kelly in the Office you can get an RD membership card by showing your KCBS membership card and the Form on the KCBS site. Once you get at RD membership card your good to go.

Check out the link from poobah above. A marketing director of RD actually made an account in here and assured all is well. Seems she may be trying to get bbq brethren members access too

Just to clarify, does this mean that the new agreement will allow KCBS members to get a "Real" Restaurant Depot membership card, and not the usual day pass?

Our KCBS card worked in Indianapolis without any issues. They actually seemed to be fully aware of the deal and we didn't need to explain anything.

So are we suppose to get an actual annual RD membership card or just day passes?

The coupon read day pass. I think that makes sense as it is a benefit of being a member of KCBS. If they give out cards then you do not need to rejoin KCBS (bad for KCBS) or RD has to have a expiration system to stay in the parameters of the program (bad for RD) unless they don't care and it seems they do or they would just let anyone in. keith

Went into my local RD yesterday (Sunday) and the lady at the front counter followed the directions on the RD printout and after a minute or so of writing out a day pass, she said the account was closed or something like that. However, armed with the knowledge I gleaned from this thread I told her it had been closed and then re-opened after a period of talks between the organizations. Anyway, she let me in regardless and I guess I'll see if it works out better next time or not. If it matters, this was in the LA area.

I didn't have any problems today. The girl behind the counter said something about how the account WAS closed but gave me the pass without any resistance

I was also told the account was closed, so I had to rely on my good looks and charm. She gave me a pass anyway.

I went a couple weeks ago and the account wasn't closed, and now they're saying it is, so what's going on?

It was closed but it is opened again. There was a thread a while back where I think poobah posted a letter from a RD marketing/sales representative and she said it was reinstated and they had just sent a memo out to all branches. She said ask a manager if it's a problem. She even made a brethren account and said she would try to get the brethren one day passes too! Check out the link in post #3 :-)

All this time I've been invious of you guys that had a RD close by (I've only had the opportunity to go in one once) --- yes, we've got the regular Costco's, Sam's and Litt.....but on the way in to work this morning, there she was...a new RD opening up in a couple of weeks. Yea!
I guess Memphis has now hit the big time. Will definitely put this perk to good use. Thanks KCBS for making it happen for us.

I did have a small problem with this at the location in Capital Heights, MD today. The person working the counter said the account was canceled; however, she did over ride the computer. Evidently she's a fan of the KCBS she said "I watch you guys on TV. Y'all do some cool stuff!"

I have heard a lot of folks say even without the KCBS coupon, RD will give them a day pass. It's just usually less hassle to go the KCBS route if you don't have the proper documentation to get your own acct.

We were lucky, and got in early enough to get the plastic RD ID with KCBS as the account owner. Other than having to stop momentarily at the service desk, they always take it, no questions!
