Larky partners with Logic to develop iOS app that helps users maximize membership perks


LarkyMillions of Americans belong to organizations and institutions ranging from health insurance and credit card companies to alumni associations and museums. However, membership perks and discounts are seldom used to their full advantage because consumers tend to misunderstand or forget about these benefits.

The Larky iOS mobile app, which is free on the App Store, helps consumers get more from their paid memberships and loyalty programs by alerting them when they are eligible for in-store savings and discounts because of these affiliations. Users can also browse through the perks that they are entitled to in the app and on the website.

“Everyone forgets about the perks that organizations work into the fine-print of their membership agreements,” said Larky Co-Founder Andrew Bank. “But these perks help define the value of membership and potentially even the cost of membership dues. At the end of the day, Larky is about helping consumers save money and adding value to association membership by making these perks clear.”

Getting started with Larky is free, easy, and requires no password or member numbers.
