Increase Your Paid Membership Level
When a member increases their level of paid membership (Basic to Upgraded, Upgraded to Premium Plus, etc.), the membership system takes the Gift Point cost of one year of the original membership type and divides it by 365 days. The system then refunds one day's worth of GPs for each day of overlapping membership.

When upgrading from any level of paid membership to a higher level of paid membership, the following Gift Point refunds will take place:
         *Bullet* Basic Membership Time: 195,500 / 365 = 535 GPs Per Day refunded
         *Bullet* Upgraded Membership Time: 495,500 / 365 = 1,357 GPs Per Day refunded
         *Bullet* Premium Membership Time: 1,399,500 / 365 = 3,834 GPs Per Day refunded
         *Bullet* Professional Membership Time: 4,199,500 / 365 = 11,505 GPs Per Day refunded


The system does provide a refund for each and every day remaining EXCEPT that it does deduct two (2) days worth of GPs as a service fee. This small deduction helps to ensure there is no fraud or abuse of the automated refund system. After a paid membership is increased to a higher level, the system will send an email with the exact number of Gift Points credited to the member's account.

If additional time is left in the lower membership level after the refund for overlapping time is given, the additional time is kept on file. When the higher paid membership level expires, the lower paid level will take over and continue for the rest of its time.

Examples
1. If you have six months of Basic Membership and move to Upgraded Membership for one month, you will receive a refund in Gift Points for one month of Basic Membership and you will have five months of Basic Membership waiting for you once your one month Upgrade expires.

2. If you have one year of Upgraded Membership and move to Premium Plus for three months, you will receive a refund in Gift Points for three months of Upgraded Membership and you will have nine months of Upgraded Membership waiting for you once your three months of Premium Plus expires.
