About a year ago, I took advantage of the COTH "special offer" that if I renewed my COTH subscription for a year, I would get a "free" Premium membership for a year. And that if I renewed for TWO years, I would get TWO years of Premium membership.
So I renewed for TWO years, even though my magazine subscription was no where near expiring.
One of the MAIN reasons I did it this way is that the magazine renewal accepts a credit card. I do not have, and DO NOT INTEND TO GET, a Paypal account.
So this week a got an email saying that my premimum membership is about to expire, and I need to renew.
Did I mis-understand the bit that said that if I renewed for two years I get two years of Premium membership?
And if so, how can I renew WITHOUT Paypal?
(The reason I refuse to get Paypal is that my mailbox regularly gets Paypal (and eBay- won't sign up there for the same reason) phish. Because I KNOW I don't have a Paypal account, I can just delete them. If I HAD a Paypal account I would have to check each one individually to see if it is real or phish.)

Erin, I too joined during the special deal. Since then I have renewed my subscription to the Chronicle and thought I would still be a premium member. Do I have to do something special? Or is this something different? Do I have to pay for both a subscription and premium membership?
