Well, I just checked the following:
-Under ‘My Account’, ‘My Subscriptions’, which lists the PC membership. (Although I will keep an eye on it over the next couple of weeks.)
-My wishlist, which has the PC member prices listed, so that means it’s active.
-the PC members forum, which I was able to get into, again, telling me it’s active.
-My bank site to check if the payment had gone through on my travel card. It had, and for the price I was given - plus exchange rate. (I live in Toronto, and the CDN is about 97 cents US today.)
(I use a pre-paid travel card instead of a regular CC because I can’t get a regular CC ATM - one credit agency is stubbornly insisting their computer system is right about something that is wrong. Also, it helps me to be able to regulate how much I can spend per month.)
