Just checked ..I have no credits ! :-( :-|


jax Report 26 Feb 2013 17:04

Only thing I can think of is.....The 50 credits are for subscribing as a standard member for a month....which of course I did'nt, they gave it to me for doing nowt.

As for keeping me sweet.... I dont think that upping the cost of subscribing for 6 months is going to make me want to stay...why would I want to pay £24 over the year when a new member only pays £20?

Any recent renewals?


Shelli Report 28 Mar 2013 22:28

I had a reminder a few days ago, my renewal is due in April, £7.96, assuming thats for 12 months as usual. I'm on continuous renewal. Was surprised as I've noticed the threads about the increase!

My renewal email dated 3rd Dec 2012 said:

"You have been billed £7.96 GBP for a 6 month Standard membership."



Suzanne Report 28 Mar 2013 22:41

i paid 19.99 :-0 :-0

ive been a member since 2003 :- :-S


ChrisofWessex Report 28 Mar 2013 22:50

That is disgusting Suzanne - no discount at all? I shall have to get back to this.


jax Report 28 Mar 2013 22:54

I have mentioned it on another thread...but I subscribed tonight after saying I was'nt going to.

If you paid £7.96 for 6 months time they will charge you £12...

The 6 month price is £15 so as long as you continue to get 20% discount that works out to £24 a year....where as if you go for an anual sub now at £19.95 next year after 20% is deducted it will be £16 ish

Suzanne the reason you have paid the full price, is because you let your membership lapse for more than a month


Jean Report 28 Mar 2013 23:02

£11.96. is the price for my renewal in April. I think that is for 6 months.


Bobtanian Report 28 Mar 2013 23:31

this is why my OH decided I was to let her subs lapse..........she can still look in, as thats all she has been doing for quite a while now.......
all these extras that we have no real interest in..........

so they lose a sub.......

But she can post under on your account Bob surely ?
No point in having 2.


SylviaInCanada Report 28 Mar 2013 23:58

There is no reason at all why she couldn't post under Bob's account ........................

so long as she identifies herself on any post as "Bob's wife" .....................

otherwise we get all confused :-S

*$parkling $andie*

*$parkling $andie* Report 29 Mar 2013 11:06

I did mean to add that Sylvia :-D

There another couple on her who have one account and sign their posts accordingly as not to confuse.

It works,and saves on increased subs.

Hubby or son don't like GR ( for some reason ;-) ) so I am the only one posting on my account , dau is totally uninterested .
