How soon after my purchase will my recipient’s membership begin?

When you purchase a gift membership, a gift packet with activation instructions will be mailed to the preferred shipping address within 2-3 weeks. The recipient will be able to start the membership at a time of their choosing, with the membership expiring one year from the point of activation. Recipients can activate their gift memberships in person, by mail, by phone at 614.228.COSI (2674), or online.

In some cases, you may be able to renew a current member's membership as a gift. In this situation, membership cards will be sent to the recipient and will expire a year from the date of the order, or 12 months after their current membership’s expiration date. Please be prepared to share gift recipient’s full name, mailing address, contact information, and the names/birthdates of dependant children ages 18 and under if you require this option. Please note: this option is not available online. Call 614.228.COSI (2674) for details.
