The holiday season is just around the corner and if you are like me, the thought of "who to get what" is on your mind. A Signing Savvy membership is a unique, thoughtful, and valuable gift to offer to your friends, family, or colleagues.
In the last few years, we have received numerous requests for the ability to purchase Signing Savvy Gift Memberships. Well, now you can!
How does it work?
When you purchase a gift membership, you will receive an Activation Code (and activation instructions) that you can email or print to include in a card or wrap up as part of a gift. The receiver of the gift will be able to use the Activation Code to gain full access to all of the Signing Savvy features. The gift membership will begin once the gift receiver activates it.
The gift that gives back.
Similar to our recommendation program, as an added bonus for purchasing the gift and giving it to someone else, you will receive time toward a full membership in return! How does it work?
|Membership Gift Purchased||What You Receive***|
|3-Year Membership||60 days of full membership|
|12-Month Membership||30 days of full membership|
|4-Month Membership||10 days of full membership|
|1-Month Membership||5 days of full membership|
If you already have a full membership, the time will be added on to your membership. If you don't yet have a full membership, you will once you purchase the gift. The more gifts you give, the more you receive.
*** NOTE: You do not receive the bonus days if you gift the membership to yourself.
Get your shopping done early!
Purchase a Signing Savvy Gift Membership today and give the gift of signing.
