Activation codes come either from annual membership purchases on our website or when purchasing a bundle deal through a fitness dealer. Purchases through retailers like Best Buy do not come with an activation code or any prepaid months of membership.
Codes of this type can only be used upon initial setup of your subscription. If you received an activation code with your purchase, you can use the following steps to redeem it on Hydrow.
1. Membership Screen
During the course of normal setup on Hydrow, a screen will appear asking you to sign up for a Hydrow membership. On this screen will be a smaller option which says "I have an activation code."
2. Activation Code Screen
Choosing this option will bring you to the screen pictured below where you can enter the activation code you received and then click "Submit"
3. Payment info screen
Hydrow will next ask you to enter your credit card. An attached credit card is required for all memberships as a form of fraud protection. No charges will be made to the card you enter until the end of the membership period granted by the code. When prepaid months expire, the card will begin to bill monthly at the normal rate.
If you are having trouble using a code successfully, please double-check that you have entered it correctly. Activation codes are case sensitive. Please also be sure that the code you are using was an official code provided by Hydrow.
If you are certain your code is both valid and correct, but it still isn't working please contact Hydrow Customer Care and include the following information in the ticket:
- The Activation code # you are trying to use with Hydrow
- A screenshot or the full text of any error message appearing when you click submit.
- What period of complimentary membership you are expecting from this code.
- What dealer or retailer you purchased Hydrow from.
We will be happy to look into this for you. Contact information can be found here.
