NRA Business Alliance members were previously offered a 30-day free trial of the company’s website and membership software. A representative told ThinkProgress Tuesday the company offers anyone a 30-day free trial and “has absolutely no affiliation or partnership with the NRA,” but did not explain why the NRA was advertising the trial to members.
In 2013, Wild Apricot told ThinkProgress that the company permits any lawful group to receive a commission if they sign up as affiliate partners and if they “do not pay any fee to the NRA, and their affiliates do not receive any discount on our software.”
After ThinkProgress reported Tuesday a list of more than two dozen companies doing business with the gun lobby, the nation’s largest privately held bank, First National Bank of Omaha, said it would stop issuing the NRA Visa card. On Thursday, Enterprise Holdings, which operates three major car rental companies, said it would stop offering a discount to NRA members. And on Friday, security software company Symantec, home security company SimpliSafe,auto insurer MetLife, car rentals Avis and Budget, and moving companies Allied and North American Van lines also cut ties.
