How do I Join Tops?

Join TOPS® as an online or in-person chapter member by clicking JOIN in the navigation bar. Or join in person at a local chapter.

Due to technical limitations, joining online is only an option if you are purchasing a full-price membership. If you wish to redeem a coupon or voucher, you must join at a local chapter.

Sign Up Online

When joining online, you'll be taken through a series of five screens. Your membership won't appear in your shopping cart until you complete all steps. Please note that you may only buy one membership at a time, and you won't able to shop for other items until after your paid membership has been processed, which only takes a few moments.

The steps are:

  1. Create your account.
  2. Confirm your chapter preference.

  4. Click on the Next button to go to Step 3.

Step 3: Choose your membership package

  1. Choose the membership package that's right for you.

What's next?

If you're an online member, no further action is necessary.

If you're going to a chapter, simply print out your receipt and bring it with you to the chapter you wish to join.

Join at a local chapter

Check for meetings near you on the Find a Meeting page.  No need to call ahead.  We recommend that you arrive early so you'll have time to talk with a Leader or greeter before the meeting. You may visit any chapter one time at no charge. We recommend trying more than one since each chapter has its own personality.

Once you decide to join the chapter -- and there's no obligation to join on your first night -- you may sign up online (explained above) or fill out a paper application.  If you already joined online before arriving at your first meeting, simply bring your receipt.  Directions for you and the chapter to follow are printed right on the receipt for your convenience.
