Wow, one would think they would welcome the opportunity to increase the membership roles!
This is an open invitation for anyone who wants to become a Life Member of the NRA and is being told repeatedly that they need to have the sponsor on the phone.
Just call back and select option 3 and tell them you have a sponsor and give them your sponsor's Life Member number. If you call a couple of times and they still tell you that you need to have the sponsor on the phone just PM me and we will set up a time to do a conference call.
Before we set up a conference call, try calling the NRA first. The first post in this thread has all the information you need http://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...formation.html
Some people have been told that they need to have the sponsor on the phone to get the $300 deal. If that happens, try calling back later. Some of the NRA operators might be unfamiliar with how to handle your type of call. Most people who have encountered this problem have called back and got the $300 after speaking with a different operator. Try calling them a few times and if you are unable to get the $300 special, PM me and we will set up a time to do the conference call.
On a side note.. process took 19 minutes, 17 1/2 of which were on hold. No music.
No trouble, no mention of needing the sponsor on the phone. gave them the sponsor #, they looked up my previous membership info, verified my CC info. said "package" would take 2-3 weeks.. Done.
If your name is M. Smith or D. Cummings and you used my membership number as your sponsor, you need to call the NRA and pay for YOUR $300 membership...My gift to you was that you get a life membership for a discounted price of $300 that you have to pay...I am not buying you a membership.
Anyone else who has posted their membership info or has given their info to someone else via PM should check their NRA membership for an account balance.
Thanks to you two, I can not sponsor anyone else at this time.
By the way, the NRA has changed their policy and the sponsor must be on the phone to get the $300 special.
I've read through many posts and having a tough time understanding if they're upgrading with simply a life name and number of they absolutely must be on the phone? I'm a new member but looking to make it life.
I got some good news and some great news...
The good news is, I got my account straightened out this morning.
The great news is, I can continue to sponsor people for Life Memberships and to date I have sponsored well over 30 new Life Members. :danceban:
