BPAA SmartBuy Program

As a member of the ICBA, you automatically become a member of the Bowling Proprietors of America (BPAA).  This entitles you to save an incredible amount of money on products and services offered through the BPAA.s SmartBuy Program.

By combining the strength and numbers of BPAA Member Centers, we are able to form solid Smart Buy partnerships that provide you with national account pricing and tremendous discounts.

As an exclusive member benefit of BPAA, you can save on purchases for every area of your bowling center... on your concourse, in your snack bar, in your bar or lounge, in your back office, at your control counter, plus many other areas. BPAA is dedicated to researching and negotiating the best quality and the best prices on products and services you use every day.

By participating in one or more of these programs, BPAA member bowling centers will see how these savings can add up, proving that It Pays To Belong!
