Hi Jamie, 


You can volunteer and earn your first membership. I did. I had so much here
to scan I went a little cheap and earned the first year. Plus Kurzweil, and
I think Openbook new purchasers  can get the $25 setup fee waved. 

Plus, say your first year runs out, you can wait a few months before you use
your credits for the next year. Once you earn  the $50 for a new year though
you lose anything beyond that until you sign up for the next year. Say you
have $50 or $150  it is considered the same when you renew. The total goes
for the next year and you start earning from zero.

Thanks Cindy. Yes, she knows about the volunteering for credit and tries to
tell people about it. I think some people are just stubborn.


I assume a person can volunteer before becoming a subscriber and earn
credits for the initial fee? Because I'm not a subscriber and my account
shows how much credit I have. If I were to become eligible I assume I could
submit proof of disability and then use my credits to subscribe? Does it
work that way or does it only work that way in theory?
