What Being a Frequent Flyer Means

Fuel the Free Press

Become a Frequent Flyer. Keep the free press free.

Always independent, always free (no paywall — ever), the Memphis Flyer is your source for the best in local news and information.

Now we want to expand and enhance our work. That’s why we’re asking you to join us as a Frequent Flyer member. If real news matters to you, consider joining us at $5 or $10 per month — or
whatever you can afford — to ensure the Flyer arrives on stands every Wednesday.

You’ll get membership perks while helping us continue to deliver the kind of independent journalism you’ve come to expect. We’re grateful for your support at any level. Give $5 per month and
we’ll send you a window decal for your car. For $10 a month, we’ll throw in a snazzy lapel pin. At $25 a month, we’ll also send you an exclusive Frequent Flyer T-shirt. $50 or more per month, and
we’ll toss in two tickets to the exclusive annual Best of Memphis party. The most important thing is that you join us in the fight to keep the free press free.


Fasten Your Seatbelts

Memphis wouldn’t be the same without the Memphis Flyer. As a Frequent Flyer, you help ensure our journalists can continue to do the important work of speaking truth to power.

Earn Your Wings

Join today and we’ll send you your very own Frequent Flyer lapel pin. Wear it with pride as a sign of your commitment to independent, local journalism.
