I know several of you here have taken advantage of the EPL program. I have been a "Lifer" for years, but I bought my son's Life Membership with EPL.
You all probably received a mailer about paying off your EPL before the end of the year, but just in case you threw it away without reading it I thought I'd mention it here.
If you pay your EPL off now, they will send you a very nice NRA-embroidered High Sierra Cargo Bag. Not a lot, I know - but just think of it as a little something extra from an already-good payment plan & money you were going to spend anyway.
I know this is a tight-money time for some, but if you (1) are an EPL Memeber, (2) have some sort of recent windfall, year-end bonus, etc., and (3) are in a position to pay it off now you might want to consider it.
I don't know if there is a limit on how little you can still owe to get the bag. I still owed $250 on my son's EPL and I qualified. You don't have to have the mailer to do this - just call the toll-free number and choose the "Life Member Services" option.
Thanks for the heads up...I did not get that mail yet.
I just started in August, but every time I get a bill, I pay $150 instead of the usual $25. I should have it paid off in a year or so.
