If you are already an active member of MasterClass, then activating the gift membership will add an additional year to your existing membership (as long as you are not set up through a third party payment provider, please view below for more info).
The e-mail address for your existing account must match the e-mail address where the gift was sent.
🗒️ Please note: The send membership link, which is sent to the sender of the gift, is not a gift link that can be used to activate the gift. The gift sender can set up the gift on the website by following the steps found here.
- A free gift that is part of a Buy One, Get One promotion is redeemable within 365 days from the date of purchase.
- A paid, standalone gift that is purchased outside of a promotion has no expiration, unless otherwise noted in the terms of service.
- The subscription of the gift recipient will start on the day that they activate the membership and it cannot be paused once it is redeemed.
