Why? There's absolutely no point -- record the date a person became a 
member and calculate the number of days from that.

In addition, what happens when you fail to run the update routine? Or 
someone runs it twice? Or it half runs, then dies because the database has 
gotten so large that the script times out? Who is going to keep track of 
when it was run? What check value scheme will you have in place to make 
certain none of this happens?

What you are planning to do is bad practice. Please reconsider.
