Santa Barbara Axxess Celebrates 10 Years

Discount program saves money for members, raises funds for schools

The Santa Barbara Axxess Card membership program provides Santa Barbara locals the opportunity to save at restaurants, golf courses, spas, wineries, theme parks, home services and more. In turn, Axxess works to promote local business through this program. In 1999, owner Karim Kaderali created the Axxess Program with little more than a home office and an intern. Now the Axxess Card features nearly 400 local businesses and has more than 15,000 members.

The Axxess Card features savings at many local favorites such as The Palace, SB Chicken Ranch, Fresco, Glen Annie Golf Club, Avia Spa and Sunstone Winery. Axxess also offers savings for movie passes, museums and theme parks such as Disneyland.

“The Axxess Card is the best way for Santa Barbarans to save money, especially in these tough economic times,” said Kaderali. “It generates new customers for businesses and is great for our community because so many schools sell Axxess Cards as fundraisers.”

Axxess is also the largest local fundraiser for schools, raising more than $300,000 so far. Click here to find out more about the Axxess Card or call 805.884.0307.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
