I have worked for this great company for a very long time. I am heartbroken.

LifeLock has bailed.

Even the underwriter that covers the new NRA self defense insurance, if I'm understanding that correctly.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/compani ... spartandhp
The latest company to distance itself from the NRA was insurer Chubb Ltd, which on Friday said it would stop underwriting a controversial NRA-branded insurance policy for gun owners that covers legal costs in self-defense shootings.
Symantec Corp said on Friday it ended a program with the NRA offering discounts for its LifeLock identity theft product.

Beautiful - gun controllers coming out and identifying themselves all over.

Perhaps someone with a brighter legal mind than I could opine as to whether this trend at some point violates the Commerce Clause or some other laws? Talk about collusion....

Bank backing NRA Visa also dropping them.
I just got off the phone with First National Bank of Omaha about my NRA Visa card. They confirmed they are ending their contract with the NRA. I told them to go ahead and "end my contract" with them then!
The rep kept trying to convince me not to, but in the end, he gave up and cancelled my card. Still have a balance due next month. If I didn't want to ruin my credit, I wouldn't pay it. :lol::
I sat on the phone for over 20 minutes to speak with a human (wonder if this is the reason for the long wait) and proceeded to pay my balance and close my account at the same time. She too kept trying to convince me not to close it but I told her that when they caved to the liberal, in my book, they became liberals so thanks, but no thanks.

I had some issues with Enterprise a couple of years ago and haven't used them since so no big deal there for me.
I sat on hold for almost 45 minutes before I got a human named Anthony. He was very nice, but wouldn't stop trying to convince me stay with them. I think they thought if it took so long to get through, I would give up, but NOPE!

BTW, I am an NRA Lifetime member.
It's not about the discounts that I never use, it's about not doing business with pandering, virtue-signaling businesses who dump NRA programs to score political points with anti-gun causes. I'll take my freedom of choice where all of my rights are respected, instead of just the convenient, social-media-ignoramus ones.

I've never taken advantage of any NRA member discount in my life, so I'm experiencing no loss here. However, I'm certainly paying attention to who is breaking ties. They will not have my business.

Funny thing is that these "partners" likely contribute little, if any, to the NRA. They simply offer members discounts in hopes they'll earn more business. The gain for the NRA is an increase in the advertised list of (mostly useless) fringe benefits that come with membership. I don't think anyone is truly joining, or dropping their membership, over a discount to rent a car. This will certainly hurt Enterprise more than the membership. And the antis have gained only a perceived victory, which they are all too happy to shout about over social media.

The only action I have felt inclined to take since this tragedy is to renew my membership for another five years. It wasn't due, but I figured they could use the cash now.

Avis owns Budget, Zipcar and Payless
Hertz owns Dollar and Thrifty
Enterprise owns Alamo and National
Advantage owns E-Z Rent-A-Car

Guess that means my car rental needs are down to Advantage and E-Z Rent-A-Car. Anyone ever use Advantage?

I never used any of NRA discounts. At work we may have even better discount programs.
NRA has a strong arm, more Co would love to have more business diverted by NRA.

I've been satisfied with https://www.identityguard.com
I haven't gone looking for any virtue signaling, however.
