Magnises, founded by Billy Mcfarland in 2014, is the new secret to unlocking a better social life. In an age where everyone is plagued by FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out- having the Magnises card in your pocket is the key to ensuring you never miss out again, and goes a huge step further by granting access to a slew of VIP services.
Older generations of clubs saw their members tied to one location, like country clubs for example, and charged yearly fees only affordable by the wealthy. Magnises takes the idea of exclusive membership and opens its’ members experiences to all types of exclusive, hip locations at an affordable price. With a Magnises card you can get tickets to sold out concerts, private drivers that will go above and beyond by creating a personalized experience, private island trips, VIP access to sporting events, their members only clubhouses, private trainers at the most exclusive gyms in New York City, and dining at the best restaurants the city has to offer. Given the list of perks, the $250 per year fee is more than justifiable and affordable, even on a millennial budget, when you consider the type of billionaire lifestyle almost anyone can feel like they’re leading with Magnises.
But it’s not just about the perks. Magnises is about building a network by bringing people from different industries and backgrounds together and helping them connect in a social setting. The majority of Magnises members are young professionals in their 20s. Their members only social events are a unique opportunity to meet people they most likely wouldn’t have had the chance to interact with otherwise. This aspect is important to the company, which believes millennials are a generation that values experiences and connections over material objects. But you don’t have to be a millennial to experience the Magnises lifestyle. There are no age restrictions on membership. And while it’s currently only available in some east coast cities, Magnises is sure to expand as interest grows.
