If you redeem the elite code, do you automatically become a founder?

I've redeemed my elite membership code from my hardened edition. does this mean I am automatically a founder? i have a founder card with a code on but Im  not sure what its for,  or how to redeem it,  I thought its just for keepsake rather than anything else, anyone know? cheers.

thankyou! just got to wait until christmas now before I can redeem any of the DLC! :(

Have you managed to get on Elite yet?

I've managed to register and had registered my elite premium code but ust getting errors all day today when trying to log in

That code on the back of the Founder Card is for something else, you can only redeem it after 13th November on callofduty.com/founder  - not sure what we're getting, but it's separate from the Elite Membership code on the back of the Founder booklet


There are two ways to become a Call of Duty ELITE Founder.

1.  Any users who activate a Premium Call of Duty ELITE account by November 13, 2011 will automatically be granted Founder's status.  You can do this by purchasing Call of Duty ELITE via your console marketplace, a participating retailer or via the Call of Duty ELITE membership token code found in the MW3 Hardened Edition.  To activate the token code please see the instructions below. 

2.  Any user who has a Founder card found in the MW3 Hardened Edition can also redeem the code found on the back of that card to receive Founder status after the November 13, 2011.  This code can be redeemed at callofduty.com/founder at a later date,  If you own the MW3 Hardened Edition and activate your premium subscription token by November 13th, you do not need to activate your Founder code.

Please note:  It may take up to 48 hours to receive your Founder status.  Founders can identify their status by the existence of a green skull icon next to their gamertag or console ID on Call of Duty ELITE.
