Unfortunately not. We had to draw a line somewhere so that we get the additional funds we need to make this work. We're basically giving everyone within the last 6 months a FREE upgrade to lifetime. If we do that for everyone then it simply defeats the purpose. I feel like those people that subscribed over 6 months ago have received their money's worth of trainers (and then some). At around 180 trainers per month, that comes out to about .04c per trainer.

Well, I'm not asking for a free sub, just a discount. I wanted to go ahead and upgrade, and thought maybe you guys might offer a discount to those under a current year long subscription if they choose to upgrade before October 1st.

If not, that's ok. I was just asking.

i agree, my sub doesn't end until January 7th of next year. and i wasn't going to upgrade until then. but now with this new policy im pretty much forced to upgrade to a lifetime which i had no intention of doing. a lot of of those games on that list affects me.

This makes my decision regarding upgrading my account much more easier :-)
Will upgrade to full lifetime account first thing my next paycheck is due.

Your work is much appreciated, dear cheat happens team :-)

Whilst I don't have any problem with upgrading to lifetime as soon as I'm able to (It was my plan anyway!), won't you guys actually end up losing money with this in the long run?

There will be an initial surge in income from the account upgrades, but if the number of people paying yearly decreases, your sustainable income will decrease as well, surely?

Again, I'm not complaining considering how a lifetime membership is better for us than it us for you (On paper at least), I'm just worried that if the demand and number of trainers keeps going up like it has been doing this past year, and your repeating income dries up, you might struggle in a year or two.

We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. For now this is the best solution without raising prices across the board or asking our current lifetime members to pay more.

Aye, that's a fair point.
Cheers pal.

In early August they sent out an email to those on a year membership that would expire within seven months from that date, and it was 50% off an upgrade to lifetime. I think they offer more than enough discounts and whatnot that you have the opportunity if you pay attention.
