When you enroll in auto-renew, BAM will automatically bill your credit or debit card on file when your membership is due for renewal. Before any payment is billed, you will receive an email notification to alert you that your BAM membership will be automatically renewed for another year. You will then be charged the due amount at your current membership level. You may opt out of automatic renewal at any time. Select auto-renew when you join BAM or renew your BAM membership online.
