The GLENNON CARD is a unique discount shopping program of the SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Foundation and the Glennon Guild, a 350 member women's organization serving the children cared for by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Individuals may purchase a paper or digital Glennon Card for $60, which entitles the cardholder to a 20% discount on regularly priced merchandise at more than 250 participating stores, salons, attractions and restaurants for the 10-day shopping period. Paper Glennon Cards may also be purchased in- store at select participating retailers.
Glennon Card 2020 begins Friday, October 16 and ends Sunday, October 25. A shopper may use the card as often as he/she wishes throughout the 10-day period.
There is no fee to participate! Glennon Card participating retailers agree to either sell digital or paper cards $60 each. Restaurants, online businesses, attractions and entertainment businesses are not required to sell Glennon Cards.
We make processing paper Glennon Cards easy. At the end of the discount shopping period, Glennon Card representatives will collect reconciliation forms given to you at the start of the program, order forms, card payments for processing and any unsold cards.
Digital Glennon Card sales are processed via our secure website at GlennonCard.org so there is no reconciliation required by the business. Customers can enter your business name when buying a digital card.
Shoppers are entitled to a 20% discount ONLY during the 10-day shopping period from Oct. 16-25, 2020. Retailers’ exclusions, restrictions or special offers are available to each card buyer; they are listed in business descriptions online here. Merchandise cannot be discounted in advance or held for purchase before Oct. 16. Card is not valid with any other offer. Sale merchandise, special orders, sales tax, delivery and layaway payments are not eligible for discount. Regular return policy applies. For restaurants, discount applies to meals for a maximum of two guests per card bearer. Not valid on alcohol, gratuity or sales tax. Services, non-retailers, attractions and entertainment businesses may offer special pricing or promotions instead of the Glennon Card 20% discount.
NEW THIS YEAR! We are allowing all business who can support online shopping with a discount code to be promoted with this feature. When completing your registration, you may choose to offer a promo/discount code in the E-Commerce Section of the contract so Glennon Card buyers can use the code online to receive the 20% card discount. Shoppers will be able to unlock the discount codes online after making their Glennon Card purchase.
Funds raised from the 2020 Glennon Card program will benefit the patients and families served at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Due to the generosity of our sponsors, 100% of card sales benefit the kids cared for by SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.

No. Customers may only redeem the card from October 16 - 25 or during a pre-sale event at the discretion of each individual store. Glennon Card sharing is strictly prohibited. The paper Glennon Cards are only valid when used and signed by the person who purchased the card. The digital Glennon Card will appear on the shopper’s phone with their name and a card number appearing under the Glennon Card logo. We suggest all participating businesses ask to see a photo ID to validate the use of the card. Remember this is a fundraiser for Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.
