Membership Sharing

What is Membership Sharing?

Membership Sharing allows an active paying member (organizer) to share their membership with up to three of their closest family members and friends who will be able to set up their own personal accounts. The guest member receives an invite by email from the paying member to join and set up their account.

Is there a cost for Membership Sharing?

There is no cost to the paying member (organizer) or the guest member. The guest member will receive an invite by email to join National Bowling Academy and once becoming a member, the guest member is granted unlimited access to National Bowling Academy’s extensive library of videos, Live Events, and articles.

Who is eligible to receive a shared membership?

A paying member (organizer) can invite up to three family members and friends who do not have a current or expired National Bowling Academy membership.

How long can a paying member share their membership?

A guest member will have access to a Shared Membership if the paying member (organizer) has an active paid membership with National Bowling Academy.

What happens if a guest member does not accept the invite for the shared membership?

If a guest member does not redeem the offer for a free shared membership, the paying member can cancel the invite and send it to another family member or friend.

If I am a guest member, can I purchase items from the Shop to add to my membership?

Yes, guest members can purchase items from the Shop to add to their membership. The guest member will then own any content purchased even if they no longer have a guest membership.

If I am a guest member, can I purchase a paid membership?

Yes, guest members can purchase their own paid membership at any time. The simplest way is to go to the checkout page and log in as a returning customer. It is important to be logged into your account when you purchase, or you will have multiple accounts.

Technical Questions

Are there any system requirements to view the video content?

Our video content is best when viewed on a computer manufactured in the past couple of years with a good broadband internet connection (not dial-up). We also highly recommend using the latest version of Chrome, Edge, Firefox, or Safari as your internet browser.

How do I view the video in full screen?

On the video playback page simply click the full screen button (4 arrows pointing outwards). To exit press the ESC key located in the top left of most keyboards.

How do I find a specific video?

You can find videos in two ways. Click the Videos link in the navigation bar (at the top of the page), and select a Category. This will allow you to view video content by topic. You can also use the search bar at the top of the page.

What are playlists and how do I use them?

We have a complete guide to video playlists available HERE.

Can I access the video content from my mobile device?

Newer-model smartphones or other mobile/tablet devices with an internet connection can access the video content.

Ordering Questions

How do I update my credit card information?

On the My Account page, click on Payment Method and choose Update Expiration Date or Update My Card by clicking on the box.

How do you store my credit card information?

Your card security is important to us; therefore, we do not keep your credit card number on file. We only store a token, which is used in place of a credit card number when submitting a payment.

What is the benefit of a credit card token?

We replace sensitive cardholder data with an alphanumeric ID that has no connection to your credit card information.

What is a pending charge?

A pending charge is a transaction approved by your bank that is still being processed. This usually takes a few business days.

Can a pending charge be stopped, and can I receive a refund for a pending charge?

Once a charge is marked as “pending” by your financial institution it is deemed final at our end and your renewal charge for the next term is complete – at which point no refunds are available. Keep in mind that if that is the case you will remain a member until the end of your current paid term.

My order says I need to fill in all the required fields, but I have everything filled in. How do I complete my order?

If you receive a message to fill in the required fields, try clearing your internet browser’s cache (browsing history.) Once the cache is cleared, open a new browser, and attempt your order again. If you continue to have issues, contact customer service for support.

Do you ship internationally for purchases in the Shop?

Yes, we do ship most physical products from within our Shop to several International countries. In addition to the USA and Canada, we ship to Australia (suspended Oct 2021 due to COVID), Brazil, India, Israel, New Zealand, South Africa, and most Western European countries. If you live outside of these countries, you are still able to purchase any digital items, including Membership, Video Downloads, Streaming Classes, PDF Plans/Projects, etc.

If I live outside of the USA and purchase a DVD from the Shop, will I be able to view the DVD content in my country?
