Tamron is stepping up its game to compete with Canon’s and Nikon’s CPS and NPS services, by introducing their VIP Club, which has been created to reward loyal customers to the Tamron brand from current Tamron customers that register eligible Tamron product purchases (“Eligible Purchases,” as defined herein). As described further in these Terms, the VIP Club will have three levels that owners can reach by registering Eligible Purchases.

Three levels or tiers are as follows:

To become eligible for membership, you must have made an eligible purchase that includes any Tamron model lenses that were current at the time of purchase, you can find a list of current lenses at http://www.tamron-usa.com. Teleconverters and Tap-In Consoles, and multiple purchases of same lens model, even if different mounts, are not considered eligible purchases. Then you need to have the lens(es) registered online, which you can do so here.

I believe this is a great move by Tamron, in fact, I believe all camera and lens manufacturers should have some kind of loyalty program for those individuals who use their products. If you own any Tamron lenses, will you be signing up for the VIP Club? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

And if you don’t hear from us before the end of the year, we would like to wish you all a Happy New Year!
