(Locked out if Feedback Forum, posting here) Renewing Membership question

  1. Aug 3, 2008 #1
    Simple question: If I renew my membership today, before my existing subscription expires, will my newer subscription expire a year from today? Or will it wait until my current one expires and then start my new year? That is, will I be gypping myself by renewing early?

    Thanks!

    As far as I remember I was not gypped when I renewed early. (No promises though.:smile:)

    Why not just do the 5 year thing its cheaper, and PF is worth it?

    :smile: I plan on it. Either way the question still stands.

    Moving to Feedback so maybe Greg can answer.. Saladsamurai, we'll check periodically for your posts. There is a glitch right now where some posts go into a queue instead of appearing. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    I've done it before, so can answer your question. If you renew early, it just adds the time on, it doesn't start immediately. So, for example, if your contributor period ends in October and you renew now for another year, you'll be good until next October, not next August.

    This message is on the Upgrade page: Validity periods marked * indicate that purchasing this subscription is recurring, this means after the period is complete it will automatically be renewed.
    Not sure what validity periods mean since I didn't see any plans with a "*".

    I think that was a PayPal option to automatically renew every year. I think most people skip that option and choose to renew manually instead.

    This * option is confusing, I have seen it too.

    Neither of the subscriptions are recurring.
