Omg it was so annoying! That's the only way to sign on. Thankfully my pro account email is the same as my google email, so i used google to sign on. Still no pro discount showing tho, so i just reapplied (again, like i did the last time they reupped the site), so hoping they approve it and my pro discount will be showing soon and i can order the products that the discount applies to that I've been waiting on for months Did i mention how annoying it is!?
