    Re: extend

    Both are correct.Your sentences are not in complete form.
    'by 1 month' - within 1 month
    'for 1 month' - only for 1 month

    Hope that helps.

    Hi jiriko
    .
    I'd say to extend membership by 1 month is the better and more typical of the two.

    Hi Fazzu
    The expression "to extend membership by 1 month" does not (!) mean "within one month" but rather "to extend membership for a period of one month." In other words, "make the membership one month longer".

    Maybe, I am too weak in giving the meanings of them even though I know what exactly it means.Thanks again!:)
