How do I sign up for the ACTIVE Advantage membership?
There are 3 ways to become an ACTIVE Advantage member:
Directly through the ACTIVE Advantage Website: You may visit http://advantage.active.com/ and click the "Start Saving" or "Join Now" buttons to start a 30-day trial of the membership. Go through two quick membership enrollment steps and then start saving on the things you need to pursue your active lifestyle!
Through a free-trial offer presented during an online registration/reservation: After you submit payment for an online registration/reservation through an ACTIVE Network registration platform (ACTIVE, RegOnline, ReserveAmerica, etc), an offer for a free 30-day trial membership will appear. You can accept this offer and take advantage of the trial membership by verifying your email address and then clicking the acceptance button on the screen. If you do accept the trial offer, you'll receive a trial confirmation email from ACTIVE Advantage shortly after. Once the 30-day trial period has passed, your benefits will be extended into the full annual membership and you will be charged the current membership fee. You will receive a reminder email 14 days into your trial period and another notification when full membership billing occurs. If you do not wish to extend your membership (during the trial period or after), you may cancel at any time. You're always protected by our money back guarantee--if you're ever dissatisfied during your trial or thereafter, simply email or call us to cancel your membership and you'll receive a prorated refund of the annual fee, no questions asked.
By adding a trial or annual membership to your cart during an activity registration: On most activity/event registrations through ACTIVE, you have the opportunity to add a full annual membership (or a 30-day $1.95 trial) to your cart as a part of your transaction. The membership will be added to your purchase total and you will pay for the membership at the same time as you pay for your activity registration. This is a simple way to start your membership and immediately begin to take advantage of all member benefits. Just look for the "Add to Cart" callouts during your registration, follow the few easy steps, and complete your transaction.
What are the benefits of the ACTIVE Advantage membership?
ACTIVE Advantage provides members with exclusive deals on thousands of activities on ACTIVE, free training plans, free event entries, additional savings on GearUp daily deals, discounts for leading active-lifestyle brands, monthly product giveaways, hotel and car rental discounts, and more. The list of benefits is always growing!
How much does an ACTIVE Advantage membership cost?
If you sign up for the 30-day ACTIVE Advantage trial membership (either through the website or after an online activity registration), you'll receive full access to all member benefits during your trial period. When the 30 days of the trial are up, your benefits will automatically continue with a regular annual membership (at the current annual membership fee).
The annual membership fee is currently $64.95. That's less than $6 per month for full access to all activity registration discounts, free & discounted event entries, free training plans, retail/dining/travel discounts, monthly gear giveaways and more.
Do I need to renew my ACTIVE Advantage membership from year to year?
ACTIVE Advantage memberships renew automatically at the end of each 12 month period, so you don't need to worry! 30 days before your membership renewal date we'll send a notification email to remind you that your membership is about to renew. When your renewal is processed, we'll send another notification email to let you know that we billed your credit card on file and that your member benefits have been extended for another year. You don't need to do anything to keep enjoying your access to Advantage discounts.
What is the ACTIVE Advantage trial membership?
The 30-day trial of the ACTIVE Advantage membership allows you to check out the program for yourself before starting a full annual membership. During this trial period you have full access to member benefits, including all ACTIVE registration discounts, access to free event entries, retail/dining/travel discounts, and more.
There are two ways to start your trial membership. You can start a 30-day trial through the website or, when registering online for an activity/event/campsite through the Active Network, you may be presented with the opportunity to try ACTIVE Advantage free for 30 days. Either way, if you decide during the trial period that you don't want to continue the membership, just let us know. Otherwise, at the end of your 30 day trial we will extend your member benefits for a full year at the then-current annual membership fee. Of course, you're always protected by our Member Satisfaction Pledge. Even if you decide after your 30 day trial that you're not satisfied with your membership, we'll give you a pro-rated refund for the unused months--no questions asked!
