I'd like to send a coworker a gift membership, but I don't want him to know my username. If I purchase it under my account, will it indicate that it came from me (my username) when he redeems it? If so, is there another way to anonymously send him a gift membership? Creating another account is against Crunchyroll policy.

You could buy it and send it to your own email account, then write down (or type/print) the code on a greeting or thank-you card and leave that on their desk with instructions for redeeming it...

Whenever I look at my account status membership history it has "gift from..." so that's what I'm trying to avoid.

You can purchase the code via http://www.crunchyroll.com/store/p/163389/Premium-Membership-Gift-One-Month on a different account.

Instead of sending it to your friend directly, send it to yourself, and then give the link to your friend. No user name relating to your primary account will be shown.

I was going to try that first. But, since it's against Crunchyroll policy to have multiple accounts, won't Crunchyroll notice that the billing information is the same as my primary and then I'll be found out? Would I be able to make the purchase and have my friend redeem it before they delete my temporary account? I was hoping there was a better solution before I'd go that route.

I doubt CR would delete the account unless you start going doing what they dislike about alt accounts.


7) Creating additional ("alt") accounts is not generally allowed. If you need to create a second account for some reason, contact moderators or customer support with a reasonable explanation for creation of the alternate account.
Alt accounts that are used to spam, harass/deceive other users, get around a ban or break any other rules may be banned or deleted on sight without warning.


The rule states provided you give a decent enough reason you can have a alt account.
Just PM a mod and see if your reason is valid enough. Which it should be, after all shinryou is the German CR admin and he doesn't seem to have any problem with it. So it should all be peachy.

Just delete it again afterwards.
