    I encouraged 2 co-workers to take advantage of the NRA's free year membership back in early February. Today one of them told me that she was glad it was free because she hasn't received any acknowledgment at all that she has become a member. Here comment was,

    "They get to use my name for a year. It didn;t cost me anything but it was worth exactly what I paid for it."

    When I asked the other person about her experience, she told me the same thing: never received anything.

    You know... that's really a shame; these two will never consider a membership again!

    So, inorder to consider becoming a paid member your co-workers must first get something for nothing.

    Oh well.

    I had my son join using the free membership in February. We just received his membership today.

    I signed up my grandson and received an email confirmation addressed to my grandson, but sent to my email. I never expected to receive any physical membership package for no fee - so it is what it is...

    regards to all,

    I talked to a friend of mine that signed up weeks ago for the free membership also. They have received nothing BUT an email today asking them to go to a paid membership. What wrong with that picture??????????

    They were not asking "for something for nothing", the were taking advantage of the NRA offer for a free one year membership. I personally feel the NRA has really dropped the ball on this one.

    That WAS the deal, wasn't it. Why do you think the NRA is offering a free year membership for no charge, no strings. It's not because the NRA people are generous; they want to attract new members... they want to expose people to the NRA hoping that some will see enough value in it to pay for a membership next year.

    How do you expect these people to react when they are offered a membership with no strings attached, they take the time to apply and take advantage and then no one on the other end takes the time even to acknowledge them?
