I posted this on another forum but it seems like folks here are perhaps a bit more knowledgeable, so please forgive the cut 'n paste -

Over the years, I've bumped my NRA membership to Life, then Endowment. With the recent sales, I went to Patron. This page:

http://www.nraam.org/events/nra-membership-upgrade.aspx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

was, until recently, offering Life members a single level upgrade for $250. I was going to use it to go from Patron to Benefactor. However, by the time I could get my Patron upgrade processed through regular channels, the $250 upgrades on that page were no longer being offered.

I realize I could just go online to my NRA member page and do a Benefactor upgrade for $1500. However, since they've recently offered that upgrade for so much less money, here's my question:

Does anybody know of a Benefactor upgrade deal currently available?

Note: Yes, I called the NRA membership number and the person I talked to did not have and said she could not get any information on Benefactor upgrades. Sounds weird, I know, but maybe I was just talking to the wrong person. In any event, I thought I'd ask here before I tried them again.

IIRC, that offer comes up every year around the annual meeting.

Thanks hpcatx! NRA shows me "Life." Now if only I can "life" long enough to amortize it. Might be an expensive one year membership.

Well worth it. Each cent spent to defend 2nA is well worth for our kids. Unless US is converted to UK/Australia/Canada or an country that once ruled under the British crown and never revolted.

That's okay, they cashed my check years ago and "lost" my membership. It balances out.

Thanks. I figured it was something like that. I think I'll call 'em up and try to see if they'll offer the same deal over the phone. If not, I can wait until just before next year's annual meeting. I'm not trying to be a cheapskate; I've donated money other than my dues plenty of times. I'm just not willing to pay $1500 for something that occasionally (apparently, at least once a year) goes on sale for $250.

I received the below link in the AR15.com newsletter today..

It's a direct link to a no-sponsor-needed $300 NRA Life Membership enrollment page. I clicked on the link and it took me to an official NRAHQ membership page with the $300/life offer. This is the first time I've seen a way to sign up online at this cost. Previously, the only success I've seen or heard about was to call them on the phone.

https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/sign ... ignID=ar15" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

If you're not already a member, please consider joining.
If $300 is not in your budget, $25 gets you a one-year membership here:

Thanks for sharing. I've been meaning to join the NRA for quite some time but finally decided I couldn't put it off any longer! :patriot:

Try http://www.NRA-2013.org. It will likely be $350, not $250, but should work for you, and is still a supreme bargain. ;-)

I just used the web link to upgrade to life with no sponsor for $300. Processed immediately through my bank, logged in to the NRA membership profile and confirmed updated to life (and activated insurance benefits while there). Works like a champ!

Yup agree with ya. I just renewed for five years should & would have spent the extra money & went with life membership but didn't know about it at the time. Oh well as you said for me five sure might be a lifetime membership. :txflag:
