American Mensa, the high IQ society, announces its “Spring Doubleheader.” During the month of May, home tests will be sold for $13. (Regular price is $18.) Return the completed home test before June 30, and receive a coupon worth $5 off the Mensa Admission Test. The coupon will be valid until August 31. Score in the top 2% and you’ll make the Mensa team!
“We’ve all felt the sting of high gas and grocery prices over the last several months. A promotion like the Spring Doubleheader is a great way to try something new this spring while keeping some cash in your pocket,” said Pam Donahoo, Executive Director of American Mensa. “For those who think they’re smart enough to join Mensa, but they’re not ready to take the Mensa Admission Test, the Mensa Home Test is a way to gauge their success on the real exam.
