PAYMENT PLANS

COMMITTED BULLDOG

MEMBERSHIP MADE EASY

The Committed Bulldog payment plan makes being a Western Bulldogs member simple and is the most affordable and convenient way to purchase or renew your membership. At no extra cost to you, there are two payment options available:

MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN:

The total amount of your membership fee is split into 10 easy payments deducted on the 28th of each month from a nominated VISA or MasterCard. Our 10 month payment plan commences on 28 October 2017 until the final instalment on 28 July 2018. If you sign up before this date, you make your first payment at the time of joining and your next payment will be deducted on 28 November. If you join after this date, the total number of lapsed installments will be deducted upon receipt of your application, to bring you up to date.

As a member on the Committed Bulldog payment plan, your membership will automatically roll over at the end of each season, which means there is no effort on your part to renew for the next season. We take care of it all for you!

6 MONTH PAYMENT PLAN:

In February, 2018 the 10 month plan changes to a 6 month plan which divides the total cost of membership over the 6 remaining months until the final instalment on 28 July, 2018. Upon renewal for Season 2018, your membership will re-vert to the 10 month plan with the first instalment commencing on 28 October, 2018.

UPFRONT PAYMENT PLAN:

The total amount of your membership fee is deducted in one automatic, upfront payment at the start of each membership season.

Prior to your membership automatically renewing each year, you will be advised of adjustments, upgrade options and any other changes to give you the opportunity to make any membership package and/or personal details changes.

Please Note: Unfortunately, we are not able to deduct from bank accounts. If you do not have a credit card, we recommend you obtain a debit MasterCard or VISA, available from most banks. They work like a credit card but deduct from your own bank account.
