Weight Watchers at Work

Weight Watchers at Work for Princeton University Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students 

Regular meetings on campus Fridays at 12:15 p.m. at McCosh Health Center, G20 . 

Membership is open to all faculty, staff and graduate students of Princeton University.

Membership costs $39.95 per month and includes free eTools and access to meetings in the community.

Unfortunately, there is no discount for Princeton employees.  However, if you have a Health Benefit Savings Account and your doctor prescribes weight loss, you can use the money in your account to pay for the program. Doing so provides some tax savings.  If you do not currently have a HBSA, you will have to wait until open enrollment to sign up for one.

For general information about the Weight Watchers program, please visit http://www.weightwatchers.com.

Registration

Registration for Weight Watchers at Work is done through the online purchase of a Weight Watchers Monthly Pass.  The cost is $39.95 per month.  The pass will automatically renew each month until you decide to cancel.  With the Weight Watchers Meetings with Monthly Pass, participants can attend At Work meetings and unlimited local meetings and are eligible for Free eTools, the internet companion to meetings.

To register, please follow these steps:

  1. Using your Princeton email, write to akwagner@princeton.edu requesting the Princeton University ID and Passcode.

  2. Go to the portal online at https://wellness.weightwatchers.com/Employees/Employeelogin.aspx.

  3. Provide the Company ID and Passcode and click Register.  

  4. Provide the requested information.

  5. If you receive a message that a meeting is not available at Princeton University, please select any location on the meeting list, click “Buy Monthly Pass” and you will see a prompt for your payment.  The Princeton University location will not show up until the meeting becomes active.  A meeting becomes active after 20 participants have purchased the monthly pass. Because you entered the system using the Princeton University ID, your membership will be counted toward the Princeton total.

A complete list of step by step registration instructions can be viewed here.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I am already a Weight Watchers Member, how can I enroll through the Princeton University portal to attend “At Work” meetings?

Call Weight Watchers’ Customer Service at 1-866-204-2885 and let the representative know that you are signing up as a new customer through the portal, you need to cancel your current account, and you want to keep your old information in the new account.   If any refund is due, the representative will process it.   Make sure you have the correct username and password and then go back to the registration page to register.

If I am a Weight Watchers lifetime member, can I attend the “At Work” meetings?

Yes, lifetime members can attend these meetings for free, as long as they weigh in at a Weight Watchers meeting at least once a month and are within 2 pounds of their goal weight.  

How quickly will members receive their Monthly Pass after purchase?

Members have the ability to print out a temporary card after activation of their Monthly Pass before their permanent pass arrives in the mail, which means they can start attending meetings the same day of purchase. A permanent Monthly Pass is mailed to each member’s home each month as long as his or her account remains active. 

How do I print a temporary card?

Log in and click “My Profile” located at the top of every page on the site. Click the “Monthly Pass Temporary Card” link in the My Account box. Print the page.

Is a credit or debit card required to purchase Monthly Pass?

Yes, a credit card or debit card is required. Flexible Spending Account Debit Cards cannot be processed for a Monthly Pass purchase. However, you may request a receipt for your weekly fees and you may submit the receipt for reimbursement.

Is an e­mail address required to purchase a Monthly Pass?

Yes, an e-mail address is required.

How does a Monthly Pass payment plan work?

Monthly Pass offers members the flexibility to attend meetings anywhere. It is a recurring billing model, which renews each month at the standard monthly plan fee ($39.95) until you cancel.  Your credit card will be charged up to 15 days prior to the end of your second month, and each month thereafter, to ensure you receive your new Monthly Pass on time.

An e-mail address and a credit card or debit card are required. 

Do I have to cancel my Monthly Pass if I want to stop being charged?

Members can cancel their Monthly Pass through their WeightWatchers.com account, by e-mail or mail. Note that we cannot process cancellation requests at meeting locations. To cancel Monthly Pass, follow the instructions below:

Login to weightwatchers.com and visit the “Help” or “My Profile” areas

I see two charges on my credit card during the first month after purchasing my Monthly Pass? Is this correct?

Your credit card will be charged up to 15 days prior to the end of your second month, and each month thereafter, to ensure you receive your new Monthly Pass on time. For this reason, you will see two charges on your credit card for the first month, and one charge each subsequent month.

I know the meeting has already started. Is it too late for me to sign up?

With Monthly Pass, you can subscribe at any time and attend the At Work meeting.

I already have a Monthly Pass subscription. Can I attend the At Work meeting?

Yes, all Monthly Pass members are welcome to attend the At Work meeting.

What do I need to bring to a meeting if I attend locally?

Monthly Pass allows you the flexibility to attend local meetings as well as At Work meetings. Just bring your Monthly Pass and any other supplies you would normally bring to At Work meetings (e.g. weight books, program material).

If my Monthly Pass gives me the flexibility to attend in my community how will my At Work Leader know I attended in my local community?

Your Service Provider will check your weight tracker booklet to confirm attendances. Since your weight tracker follows you as an individual regardless of where you attend, your leader will know when you attend other meetings. 

In addition to Weight Watchers, Princeton University supports other options for its employees to achieve a healthy weight.  For more information on the various options available, please contact Kathy Wagner at 258-5137 or akwagner@princeton.edu.
