This is last minute. I thought I had lost the form, but just found it. As an endowment member, I am allowed to sign up family members for $300 life memberships. Unfortunately, this is very last minute as the offer expires 1-31-2010. Also, it states family and says nothing about friends. If anyone wants to contact the NRA to see if it applies to friends, I will pass along whatever information is required to get you signed up.

If anyone has experience with this and wants to chime, it would be appreciated.

Hello Cousin Raven
It has been a long time since we talked at the last family reunion. LOL, Just Kidding.

It is great of you Raven to put this out there to help fellow members. I would love to take you up on the offer, if anyone knows how to make this work. thanks once again for your kindness.

wow, I thought the 500 offer I got was good! 300 is a killer deal, does it come with all the trimmings(gifts, certificate, etc etc)? The offer I got ends on the 31st as well, I just don't have the extra funds at the moment. :(

many members here have taken advantage of this offer in previous years. NRA doesn't check family status, there's no blood test involved.

If that's the case, sign me up!

So what is needed from me for people to take advantage? Do they just need my membership number and they themselves call and apply? That would be the easiest, as I really do not feel like making the payments and having to deal with collecting funds, especially at this price.


--------------UPDATED--------------
I just got off the phone with the NRA. Since these are "gift" memberships, I am the one that needs to pay initially. I would require you to pay via PayPal or Gunpal (preferred). I would then call the NRA and give them your information (basic info - i.e., name, address and phone number). You can then call them later and update your info with whatever you wanted.

Two people have already sent me PM's. I will go ahead and help out 4-6 at this point. It might look a little odd if I am signing up a dozen cousin's uncle's sister's brother's little brother.

At this point, my quota is full. Two via PM, LtMike70, coma and Call_me_Tom. If you five are still a go, shoot me your info via a PM and send the required funds via PayPal (anti-gun) or Gunpal (preferred). Make sure to factor in whatever I get charged with:

Gunpal - For Personal Accounts:
* 2.8% + $0.30 for all transactions

PayPal
* 2.9% + $0.30 for all transactions

I hate to actually have to collect this, but we are talking about $9 per transaction. I love my extended family, but that would be $45.

I would love to take advantage of your offer Long Lost Uncle Raven....but it looks like your full up already....plus that money may be better spent on C&R guns as I just got my FFL03 :D

I just called to change my wife and son from ELP (or what ever they call the payment plan), the life membership office was closed so I talked to someone in sales. He said the membership sale for family members ends next Friday, not today.
Can anybody confirm?

Uncle Ravenslair, my portion is complete. Let me know how it goes.

Ravenslair
01-29-2010, 2:08 PM
Taken care of most. I have called three times now. They must think I am rolling in the dough! Need to get a few things done around the house. Will take care of the last three as soon as they pay and will try to take care of those that PM'd or posted after my self imposed number of 10 was reached. Not sure I will get to any one else.

Dang....any idea how I could get this offer myself? I'd pay by credit card right now just to get a life membership for $300

Ravenslair
01-29-2010, 2:16 PM
I also have a form that allows me to send in the names and info for four additional people. I may use that as well for anyone else that got in too late. It will be via snail mail, but should be better than nothing. If I plan on going that route, I already have two or three (those posted above this message and below my cut-off message) that will be able to use this form if they desire. I will keep you posted.

Hello Acorn

You can take me (LtMike70) off of the list, I was in the first group with Raven and my cousin already added me to his extended family. thanks

I am going to try to take care of all of you. Worse case I put you last four on the form I can mail in. I will still need payment and your name, address and magazine choice. If you four will PM that to me, I will reply with how to pay. Based on one of the updates above, this goes until next Friday. If that is the case, I will call in a membership for each of you four on Monday (if they do not answer the phones this weekend). I am going to put a hold on this for now. After the four above are done, I will have completed 14 of these things. That should be a good start for now. If time permits, I will do more.

Thanks.

Ravenslair,

PM Sent. Let me know if you've got room for another (calling or snail mail is fine).

The deal had expired the last time I tried to take advantage. My annual membership is up next month and I was about to send the check in for three years... Skipping that, I figure a Life Membership is even less expensive.

Thanks,

Dwarf

All done! Sugacookie (need your last name and payment) and in2protour (still need payment), I will add you to the snail mail form. XXX and floorance, you two were the next quickest. Shoot me a PM with your name, address and magazine choice so I can add you to the snail mail form. I will then let you know my info for payment.

I will open this up to others again when I get another family option.

Ravenslair

We are all done. No more at this point. If you have not paid, it is too late. According to the membership operator I spoke with last night, the offer expired at 11:59 PM on 1-31-2010 and the snail mail form had to be post marked before 1-31-2010. So, we got 15 people done and I will post up when I get another offer like this again.

I called this morning, I was able to add my wife and son for the promotional price.

The rep said the "sale" ends Friday the 5th.
