 From the Designer's Council web site:

"Free Designers Council Membership!

Did you know that when you join or renew your IPC Designers Council 
membership we give you a $50.00 coupon to be used towards attending a 
workshop or seminar or the purchase of IPC documents? This is like getting 
your IPC Designers Council membership for free! Also, up to three coupons 
can be saved up to use towards seminars or workshops. That's $150.00 off 
the price of a class! These are just some of the value added benefits that 
Designers Council members receive."

The DC site implies that one may "Save money on design by using IPC design 
standards," listing this as a benefit of membership, but it is not explicit 
that one receives the same discount as IPC members on publications.

However, on the page about the certification packages, there is a list of 
IPC publications for use in study for the exam, with "member" and 
"nonmember" prices. The non-member prices are the same as are advertised to 
the public. The member prices are half the nonmember prices. When I joined, 
I got the $50 coupon plus I paid the member prices. I was told that this 
was a benefit of membership.

Perhaps only those specific publications are offered to DC members, which 
would be a tad misleading....
