Want to show off your co-op member status with a cool member badge here in the community?! And be able to join the member-only section of Conversations?! To earn it, you just need to link your REI membership to your online account. To do this, follow these steps:
I do not appear to have the "Link account" option in the My Account screen, it does show my member number in the top left area, so I presume that would indicate my account is linked; however I still det access denied when I try to go to the members only section.
If anyone is having a hard time seeing the Co-op Member section but is confident your member number is attached to your online REI account, try signing out and signing back in. We've heard that this quick action is fixing the issue for some, and triggers the member badge, member role and access to the member-only section! @bones @mels @thatbenguy @buster
So logging out and back in did the trick! Didn't have to use my account number at all. It automatically gave the badge once back in conversations.
Seems like there's an issue with the Community site and Firefox. No matter what I tried on Firefox it would just kick me back to the rei.com main page, but when I tried with Chrome it worked.
