What is an AQ Circle+ Premium Membership?

An AQ Circle+ Premium Membership is an online-only subscription service that gives members access to a variety of exclusive benefits. As a Premium Member, you will have all the perks of an AQ Circle Member as well as:

  • Free Standard Ground Shipping for every online order OR 2-Day Shipping for just $20 if you live in the contiguous U.S.
  • Triple AccuQuilt Rewards Points for all online orders
  • Early access to new products
  • Annual single-use 20% off coupon for your birthday month
  • 50% off all purchasable patterns and Machine Embroidery Designs
  • A Welcome Gift sent with your first order after you become a Premium Member






Let’s explore what the Premium Membership payment options are as well as what each of these added perks means.



Premium Membership Payment Options

AQ Circle+ Premium Members have the option to pay monthly or for the full year with two months free. By having a Premium Membership, you’ll receive an entire year of benefits, regardless of the payment option you choose.


If you select monthly payments, the $14.99 fee will automatically be charged to your credit card each month. There will be a total of 12 recurring payments, including the first payment. 


The annual payment option is a one-time yearly fee of $149 for $30 in savings. After one year, your membership will automatically renew and your credit card will be charged. 


The recurring or renewal payment feature only works through PayPal, but you do NOT need to have a PayPal account and can use your own personal credit card through the PayPal interface.


By registering as an AQ Circle+ Premium Member, AccuQuilt is committed to providing these great benefits to you for the whole year. You'll be able take advantage of every perk within minutes of your order being placed.



Save on Shipping



Every Day Free Standard Ground Shipping



Every order as a Premium Member qualifies you for free Standard Ground Shipping. If you can’t wait to get your hands on your new items, you can pay $20 for 2-Day Shipping. This offer is only for those who live in the contiguous United States.


If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, Canada or outside the U.S., you’ll receive all the other Premium Member benefits except for the shipping offers.



Earn AccuQuilt Rewards Points Faster



Triple AccuQuilt Rewards Points on Every Purchase



As an AQ Circle+ Premium Member, every dollar spent translates to three AccuQuilt Rewards Points earned. This means that you can quickly accumulate more Rewards Points to use as savings on any future order once the points are in your account. Plus, you can look forward to even more free Rewards Points through SMS messages.


NOTE: Every 75 Rewards Points means $1 to redeem, and each Rewards Point will expire 365 days after it is earned.



Early Access for New Products

New AccuQuilt products are launched each month, including the exclusive Die to Try series dies. As an AQ Circle+ Premium Member, instead of having to wait until their release dates, you’ll have early access to these new products. This allows you to learn more about each product, plan how to use it and purchase it sooner than non-Premium Members.  



Annual Birthday Coupon

When your birth month begins, AQ Circle+ Premium Members will receive a single-use 20% off coupon. You can use this coupon towards any online purchase before it expires at the end of that month.



GO! Birthday Treats Table Runner Free Pattern




50% Off All Purchasable Patterns and Machine Embroidery Designs

AccuQuilt offers hundreds of free patterns available for download, but there are some that are available for purchase. As a Premium Member, you’ll get 50% off these for-purchase patterns.


Similarly, AccuQuilt has free downloadable Machine Embroidery Designs for every GO! Applique Die in three stitches – blanket, satin and motif – and there are even more designs available for purchase. With an AQ Circle+ Premium Membership, you’ll always have 50% off these for-purchase designs.



Machine Embroidered GO! Patterns




A Welcome Gift Upon Joining the AQ Circle+ Premium Membership



Welcome Gift Includes an AccuQuilt Quilter's Notebook and a GO! Cutting Mat-5" x 10" 2 Pack



After you have become a Premium Member, we’ll send you a Welcome Gift with your first order. The Welcome Gift contains an AccuQuilt Quilter’s Notebook and a GO! Cutting Mat-5” x 10” 2 Pack.


The notebook will be released at a later date for everyone to purchase, but, as mentioned above, AQ Circle+ Premium Members have early access to new products! You can use the AccuQuilt Quilter’s Notebook to plan your next quilting project, record your bucket list of quilts to create, keep track of the projects you’ve made and more.


Plus, nothing happens using a GO! Fabric Cutter without a GO! Cutting Mat as the top to a GO! Die “sandwich,” so it’s always a good idea to have more on hand before they need to be replaced.



How Do I Join the AQ Circle+ Premium Membership Program?

To become an AQ Circle+ Premium Member:

1. Log in to your AQ Circle account.


2. Choose an Annual or Monthly AQ Circle+ Premium Membership and add it to your Bag.*
