redeem pro membership gifts? Answered

About 4 months ago (Or 6.... can't quite remember) I received a free pro membership for a specific allotted time. When I went to redeem that, I also noticed I had also been gifted a year pro membership (woohoo!). However, I can't seem to find where to redeem that one now that my shorter membership is over, or even where it lists the gift. What's up? How do I locate this gift and redeem it? 

Thanks for any help!

I have been gifted a pro membership, but I currently have one. If I redeem the gift now, will it extend my current pro membership, or will it just get 'consumed'?

The PRO membership code is found in your You page under the Pro Membership tab. A confirmation email is sent to whichever email address you signed up with which also contains the code and a link to redeem it.

The PRO membership code is found in your You page under the Pro Membership tab. A confirmation email is sent to whichever email address you signed up with which also contains the code and a link to redeem it. If you forgot your password there is a "forgot username/passaword" in the login.

Regarding your account: I just checked and it says your last login with account Shazzi was last accessed Mar 19, 2012 (at 8:32pm). Does this mean you have resolved the password for your original account and found the Pro Memberships?

I had a pile of them I claimed when the next gift membership was to automatically start the tab entitled "pro membership" disappeared with all the gift memberships about six years worth.

Go to your "you" page, and the should be a tab entitled "pro membership".  Click it, and you will see any codes you have available to redeem, plus how to redeem them.

If there isn't, go to https://www.instructables.com/go/pro to redeem your code which you should have been sent in a PM (and the same code should also have been repeated in an email).
