GR pricing structure

When my 6 months was up for renewal they offered me it at £1.33 pm (£7.98) but a week after my subs had expired they gave me a free month for posting on the WDYTYA board.....then when I looked at what they were going to charge me it had gone up to £15 less 20% discount (£12) I complained and they said if I pay the £12 they would refund the difference...I could'nt be bothered with all that, so thought I might aswell pay the £19.95 for the year as that was what it was going to cost me anyway....when my 12 months is up I will get 20% so it will be about £15.95 instead of £12 for 6 months

As I understood it, if you changed you did not get the continuous membership discount, which seems unfair.

I went from a six month to a yearly sub KenSE a few weeks ago.

It was no cheaper to start with (approx the same) but would be after a year should I want to renew.

Of course this was the standard membership

Sylvia, the complaint is that you can only renew your existing subscription. If you have a six month sub, you can't change that to a year, which is cheaper.

several threads on the subject ................... with information on them from GR

I don't really see the need for yet another .............. just another one for GR to ignore!

what other option(s) to renew are there other than Manual and Automatic

Manual meaning that they cannot take the money from your credit card automatically.

Automatic meaning you have given them the right to deduct the amount from your credit card, after you have received notice that your sub is due.

It's exactly the same on other sites!

No idea why another thread is needed on this as GR seem to ignore all of the others already on the boards

This is just one of many on the boards

checking out the nudge

Would suggest that GR create a page linked to the home page which lists out their pricing structure. It is needed so that members and the public know exactly what they get for their money.

Also in a members accounts page their should be the option to change their personal options. So frustrating that at the moment one can only select manual or automatic payment of what is existing.

So many threads from members enquiring about this

:-D :-D :-D
