My annual membership on here will expire in mid April. This last week, I was sent as a complete RAOK by a dear friend, a renewal code :) My question is, should I wait until April when I receive the notfication from PBS that my membership is due to expire before applying the code? I don't want to lose a month by renewing now (I don't think that happens but am not sure) More importantly, I am wanting to check that the code does not expire. So if I did wait, until I receive the notice, it'd still be valid.

Thank you everyone and God Bless You.

The new membership will add on to the end of your current year, so it adds on 12 months.

but if your gifted membership is a different level than what you currently have, the benefits don't change until the date of expiration of your current membership.

From the help pages

If you are within 45 days of your Limited service expiration date, you should consider purchasing Standard Annual Membership instead. In that case, the Standard Membership features will begin instantly and will extend a year past your current expiration date.

Thanks, Jeanne and Mary :) I contacted Live Help aafter not hearing from PBS directly (I wanted to double check that if I waited the code would not expire). I'm a Standard Member right now till April 12th and then will be Limited. I don't order many books so that is A-Ok with me, (ETA: It would have been A-Ok more than with me regardless)! I was so  touched by the kindness of the friend who surprised me with the code because all of you know (or should, it's true) I never, ever would have asked and I thank some of you for asking me. I truly am so Blessed to be part of RAOK on here. I did add the code and it now shows my membership is valid until April 12, 2018. I will check that on April 12th of this year, I go to Limited. I have no where near even that number of books on my WL so no concern there. Happy reading all and thank you for RAOK-ing always :)
