RESTRICTIONS and ELIGIBILITY

The membership tiers will be assessed once per year. On subsequent years, VIP Club membership status will be announced to all Members on February 15 of each year, with the registration deadline being January 15 of the same year.

Not every lens qualifies towards the minimum of four for the VIP tiers. Per their website, and this is my interpretation of their rules:

  • only Tamron model lenses that were current at the time of purchase count towards the tiers. Current lenses are listed on the Tamron USA website at tamron-usa.com
  • Teleconverters and Tap-In Console are not considered Eligible Purchases
  • Multiple purchases of same lens model, even if different mounts, are not considered Eligible Purchases
  • Each Member must own his/her own unique Tamron model lens
  • Grey market, open stock, and refurbished lenses are NOT eligible purchases
  • Only new and current Tamron lenses purchased from an authorized Tamron USA retailer are eligible purchases
