Membership in PEN’s Buying Group offers independent optometrists many financial benefits including the highest vendor discounts with low administrative fees, and no membership fees. Plus, PEN was the first buying group in the country to create a Member Bonus Program, giving members an opportunity to receive a yearly check based on their total annual purchases.
Members also enjoy PEN’s proven reputation for exemplary customer service and prompt resolution of problem situations. In addition, members benefit from great management tools such Purchase Summary Reports that track monthly purchase activity by vendor, and easy to understand statements that list purchases, fees, and pending credits.
PEN’s vendor panel is comprised of the finest providers in the industry and includes those who support the ideas and goals of PEN members. PEN has negotiated the highest discounts for our members. Some vendors give an additional discount that is passed on to Members in the form of reduced administration fees. In addition to the listed discounts, PEN's Cooperative Bonus Program provides an opportunity for you to receive a check within the first quater for up to 1% of your total annual purchases.
PEN has offered quality educational programs to independent optometric practices since 1984, honoring our commitment to enhancing our members’ ability to compete in a rapidly changing eyecare marketplace.
