No. Per Eckerd guidelines, we are unable to take credit card information over the phone.

Why am I not receiving a member discount on classes/programs that I am registering for?

There may be a few likely scenarios. Below are the two most common.

  1. If a class/program’s end date exceeds your membership’s expiration date, a discount will not be applied.
  2. You are not logged into your account. Even if you are signed into your account, it’s important to note that discounts are not applied until after a class/program is added to your cart and you begin the check out process.

If none of the above scenarios apply to you, please contact our office at before completing your online registration.

Can I pay with cash/check?

We accept payment by credit card only. In accordance with Eckerd’s policy, we can not store financial information.
