Congratulations to everybody who availed of the Black Friday offer. However this creates a situation where people are paying different rates for membership FOREVER. Can anything be done for all the people who upgraded during the rest of the year and who may now feel that they should have waited. Many people may feel a bit shy and so they will not say what they feel, but I think several people will consider that their colleagues being on a different rate FOREVER is unfair. Is it unreasonable to think like this, or do others feel the same as me.

Hi all, it's not unreasonable to think that way, quite normal in fact but I think this is fairly common practice out there in the real world. Take for example Telcos, when you signup there is always a better plan/offer comes along within no time that is far better than yours but only available to new customers. I think it is fairly normal to add incentives to entice new people yet the existing members/clients miss out. Whether its fair or not is debatable, depending on which side of the fence you sit! If I was you I would use this as motivation to make good and really excel with your website/business and you will have even greater satisfaction! Good luck, TJ

Good points TJ, I am not obsessing about it, but I thought some other people may see it as a little bit unfair, but were keeping quiet. Maybe it is the slightly less consumerist European culture that I come from, but I notice it is not a really big issue with most people. It is no harm at all to voice an opinion that is not universally popular, otherwise we would belong to a group that accepted everything without questioning it.

I don't know how the settlement is when you are already yearly, I was a monthly premium, and had still $20 left until 15 december, and that amount is deducted from my yearly upgrade.

Congrats Loes, it is a great deal, but if you are already yearly it is not open to you without going back monthly first. That is my understanding anyway.

That's a pitty for those who decided to upgrade last month, just like in a store, you buy something and the next week the price is half off

I have been here a little longer then you but not a lot longer and just being here at WA I was aware of last years black Friday offer and the possibility of it happening again this year!

Thanks for your comment Christa, yes I was aware of it but I think you cannot enter for this bargain without going back monthly first, which means it is not a bargain at all. However, I won't lose any sleep over it lol.

No problem with me and I just decided to gomyearly a week or so ago myself. Just wish I could have purchased a second year at the special rate, but alas, no extra funds right now. Those who got the special should be very happy.

Best of luck to them Shirley.

You were given the choice and that was your decision, no one can force anyone which path to take, This is just like the lottery " if you not in it you won't win it"

Congratulations Sam, my only point is that you can never enter the lottery once you have paid the higher price.

I think that year deal is only for one year. I could be wrong.
It is a good price for a year but I am giving it 6 months for some success. If it works the difference in money will mean nothing. If not, that is what it is.

6 months x $47 = $282
Black Friday Deal $299 for 12 months, $17 for the remaining 6 months...
Just saying :-)

I never figured out 6 months before, you are correct, only $17 more/or less.

If you're in for 6, you'll probably be in for life!

True, I hope so.

All the best for your future!

It is all a matter of perspective....I would suggest that if anyone truly has issue that it be taken up through proper channels with the admins.

You are right Rosie, but I will leave that to others. I have too many other distractions at the moment to be worried about this.

Hi. You've got to realize that all the stores are having their Black Friday deals going on, and Kyle and Carson were gracious enough to join in on that.

Obviously everyone will not be taking part in the deal, just like not everyone will be standing in lines for hours to get that big old TV they want. This is a great opportunity for many, simple as that.

People have been paying different rates before this. Those who go yearly get a discounted rate from the monthly fee. Should this not be allowed as well? I respectfully disagree with your opinion.

Michelle

We will agree to disagree Michelle.

Nicely put! Exactly...I am happy!
