I have been a Gold Key member for quite a while, but don't remember the exact date that I joined. I love this program and have reaped many a benefit from it. I want to rejoin when my membership ends. Does anyone know if there is a way to tell when our membership will end?

I looked it up in the Help Docs but couldn't find that answer. I only found this:

Q: Can I renew my Gold Key Membership "in advance"?  What if I renew early?

A: You can renew as early as you like - doing so will simply extend your Gold Key enrollment.

I also read that if your Gold Key membership expires, the last books that you added after 200 will go into your Reminder List. They said that if you rejoin within 2 weeks after it expires,  they will add them back to your wishlist. But, I would like avoid this by knowing ahead when my membership is about to expire.

I managed to find this by going to My Account, then Transaction Archive, then clicking on Receipts.  I identified the Receipt that was for my Gold Key membership by the amount, but if you click on the Transaction Number, you will be able to see exactly what the receipt is for.

I'm pretty sure we'll get a reminder when it's time to renew!  smiley

You can just go to the kiosk and select the Gold Key membership to purchase.  At the bottom of the page, just above the 'add to cart', it lists the date that your current membership expires.

Thanks Robin, I did what you said and my money receipts only went back to Dec. of 2011. I think I have too many, lol. I agree, Diane I think they will send a reminder, thanks. Sherry, thanks so much because that is where I found out exactly when I became a Gold Key Member. I knew I must getting close and yes I will rejoin on August 26th!

I'd be surprised if they didn't send a reminder to renew.  I used to get a reminder when I was a boxer.

Another Thank You Sherri, I checked my date also!  Although, I really do expect PBS will be sending reminders  heart

When PBS was beta testing gold key, this topic came up.  It is my understanding that they send you a notice and you have a month to renew.   Your WL will be remembered for only two weeks after the expiration date.

Yes...thanks, Sherry.   Your way is definitely easier than the way I found!
