Merge and add emails to your Merit profile

Do you use different email addresses for different organizations? Would you like to consolidate all of your merits into one profile? Here are the steps to do so.

* If you should have USPA merits, but only see UPT Merits in your merit page, (or vise versa), you’re probably using 2 different email addresses.

**If you have linked your BurbleMe account with Merit AND you are using multiple email addresses that you have NOT merged, you’ll only be sending SOME of your merits to Burble, and not ALL. Please be sure to merge your accounts before you integrate with Burble and check-in to the dropzone.

*** Merge requests will be fulfilled within 72 hours.
