    2024 Membership Thread

    I don't think there's a 2024 membership thread yet but did anyone get the offer from WB today offering a free upgrade to a L1 (silver) or L2 (gold) membership if you agree to move to digital?

    I don't get how it works, because isn't L2 all reserved and surely we wouldn't be being offered a free reserved seat for our 9 game memberships?

    I've been on hold to speak to the membership dept for 40 mins and counting so far ... :/

    What I am thinking is, if you're bronze you can choose the free upgrade to silver and if you're silver you can choose the free upgrade to gold - but I am bronze and being offered both when logged into my account. Perhaps if I choose the gold upgrade I'll get prompted to pay, but the only option after selecting one is 'submit' and I don't want to get hit with a charge.

    Edit: Got through and they said no, I can choose either membership, but to sit on L2 will require a $10 payment pp to secure reserved seats for each game, which you do via Ticketmaster. However, junior memberships don't qualify for the free upgrade, and as my son often comes along to the footy, it won't suit me to upgrade (or I can, and just sit in L3 for the games he attends).

    Hi Cindy good to hear from you. I am a L2 Gold and I can tell you there are plenty of seats available.
    Sorry can't help you with your issue.

    All I was offered was a $40 Bulldogs shop voucher rather than $20 if I switch to digital by November 1.

    Not for me. It's close to $20 postage if I buy something from the store so they can send it to me the old way.

    Do they mean go digital and not get an actual membership card?

    A digital pack you don't get a delivery with a scarf and other stuff by courier

    Can you do a pickup when you come to the odd game?

    Possibly, it's just a pain to go there even earlier and lineup for over 30 minutes to collect a scarf. I would also like the physical card. I've kept them all and wsnt to hold onto that tradition as long as possible.

    Principals come into it. The club are trying to pinch pennies on members which they should not be doing. Send out the dam gear, it's not that hard.

    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.

    I got offered either:

    - the $40 voucher, or
    - a rookie list spot, or
    - an assistant coach, two year contract

    Torn with which to pick.
