Subscription FAQs

How much is a premium subscription?

Less than $7/month when billed on an annual or semi-annual basis. Starting on February 1, 2022, subscriptions billed monthly (and only subscriptions billed monthly) will be billed at a rate of $9/month. The price of semi-annual ($40 every six months) and annual ($80 per year) subscriptions will not change and will always remain below $7/month. There are no catches, stipulations or surprises. What you see is what you get: Hundreds of articles each month at a fraction of what you’d pay on comparable sites.
