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:
@KikkoMae we're sorry for the confusion. If you are on REI.com, you will see "Sign In" or "My Account" (image below may help) where you can ensure your membership is linked to your online account. If your membership is attached, a sign-in and sign-out of the community usually fixes the issue!
Hi @loveallhiking - Thanks for reaching out, though we’re sorry its because you're unable to access the member section. The Access Denied message appears if a member number is not associated with an account. This could happen in the following instances:
When you go to REI.com and click ‘My Account’ in the top right corner, is your member number listed under your name? If yes, Conversations may not have recognized it yet and signing in and out could clear up the problem.
If your member number does not show under your name, you will need to follow the steps in this thread's original post to link it to your account.
Let us know if these steps don’t work and we will be happy to assist you further. Thanks!
