The Premium Plus plan introduced our users to SMS notifications last year, and we have been amazed by all the positive responses! Not only are we happy to hear that people appreciate the data we publish several times a week, but the interest in SMS notifications has been beyond what we could have expected. As of 10 PM UTC (5 PM Eastern) on Monday the 15th of February, we will be changing the rates for the Premium Plus plan. This will only apply to new subscribers to the plan, as we feel it is only right to reward our loyal long-term customers by continuing to honor their current rates. The current prices will also apply to anybody who starts their subscription before the 15th. If you’ve been on the fence for a while, now might be a good time to lock in the current rate before they’re raised.
The new rate will be $99.99 per month or $999 per year. We are raising our rates to meet the increase in operating costs that we have seen over the past year. This will continue to fuel our efforts to meet demand, publish exciting stores and data, and to increase the quality of our service overall. We have some exciting plans for the year, and can’t wait to share them all with you.
In addition to the coming change in subscription rates, we have implemented another change as of today. There is no longer a free membership option on the site - everything that was once hidden behind a free login has now been made public instead. Due to this change, over the coming weeks, we will gradually be cancelling all existing “Standard” subscriptions. If you are currently a registered user with a Standard subscription, your user account will not be deleted and there will be no change in what you have access to.
If you have any questions regarding any of this, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re always happy to help.
