Gift Membership Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is a "premium chessgames membership?"

Anybody can register to Chessgames for free, but for a small annual fee you can enhance your experience with a number of powerful and fun features. See the Chessgames Premium Membership Tour for detailed description.


Q: I want to buy a premium membership for myself.

In that case, you are a little lost. This page is for buying a membership as a gift for a friend; the normal way to sign-up for premium membership for yourself is to visit our Premium Membership page.


Q: How will the recipient know that they have been activated for premium membership?

A: An email will be sent to their address informing them. The premium features will automatically present themselves when they next use Chessgames.


Q: Will I automatically be rebilled when the recipient's membership expires?

A: No. We do not make recurring charges.


Q: What if the recipient is already a premium member?

A: Their membership will be extended.


Q: Will the recipient know who gave them their premium account?

A: Only if you tell them. By default, the process is anonymous.


Q: What if the recipient doesn't have a chessgames account at all?

A: You can tell your friend about chessgames and encourage them to sign-up for a free account. Alternately, you can use our system of Chessgames Activation Codes.
