Amazing how quickly the existing subs forgot the discounted rate they get when the subscription fee went up
Rather than moaning about a $4 discount t ...[text shortened]... rate therefore saving themselves $10 per year.
A far better discount than the $4 on offer.
Not so I'm afraid adram, my subs have been gifted from two separate parties..the $10 off in '09 offer surely should and could have been made based upon continuing subs and not merely on the same card paying or one person. In fact I'm still unsure why I had to pay the same as someone joining after '09....why should gifts from my wife and previously a couple from my brother in law be any different to my own offering up of a card ??
I don't think folk were necessarily offended but I think it would've 'gone down better' to give the whole community the opportunity of a 10% discount, not just new subs. I thought any potential loss would be outweighed by having the money deposited in the sites bank earlier than subs due date...buy now and add 12mths to your normal due date, it guarantees continued subscription and earlier than usual....I know for a fact others would've taken this option as it was mentioned to me, it's not my idea lol..
