A few people have asked me about how to give another member a membership gift, so I figured I'd post instructions for everyone to see, in case there are others who wanted to know.

First, any member can buy another member any number of months of a membership, even if that person is already a paid member.  The gift will simply extend the person's membership however many months are purchased.  So if the recipient's membership is due to expire in June, a gift of a 6-month membership will extend the recipient's membership six months to December.

To buy a gift for someone, make the purchase as if you're making it for yourself.  Go to the Premium Memberships page, scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the button corresponding to the type/length of membership and method of payment.

When you're checking out (completing your purchase), be sure to include a note to me in the Message entry space, telling me that it is a gift, and specifying the member's Lottery Post username.  Be sure to spell it correctly!  (Otherwise it may delay your gift.)

Whether you're paying by credit card directly or through PayPal, you will see a Notes/Message space at some point during checkout.  However, if for some reason you were unable to find it during checkout, just send me a PM to let me know about the gift.  If you DID include the note during checkout, there is no need to send me a PM.

What happens next

Within 24 hours of your purchase, I will upgrade the gift recipient's membership (or extend their existing membership), and then I will immediately send them a brief note to let them know about their gift, and who sent it.  Then I will send YOU a note to let you know the gift was delivered.

    Thanx Todd, I'll keep that in mind.

    Let's all chip in a buck, and extend Todd's membership for about the next 30 years.

                Pacattack,

                If you collect enough, throw in yourself for  a membership.. I will put an extra 50 cents in for you..

                You already put your 2 cents in so now it's 48 cents.

                50 cents - 2 cents = 48 cents.

                    Now it's 46 cents. You just put another 2 cents in. That's 4 in total.

                    50 - 4 = 46

                    I'm keeping a tab.......!
