Dear Paolo:

Which of the following sentences is correct and natural?

1) .....you can receive a 100% full refund ON your membership fee!

2) .....you can receive a 100% full refund OF your membership fee!

*** Because it is a FULL refund and not a PARTIAL one, you should use "OF your membership fee."
