Auto-Renewal

Recommended Posts

Anyone else out there a long-time auto-renewer? If so, have you noticed that the cost of the annual membership has gone down since you signed up but you are still paying the original price? I was told I was "grandfathered" into the higher price because I joined in 2010. And if I want the lower price I have to delete the auto-renew and sign up again when my current year, which is 364 days away, expires. And hope that in the meantime, the cost won't have gone up. Sounds a bit backwards to me. Grandfathering usually gives you a discounted rate for your years of patronage, not the other way around. Would love to know if I am the only one in this situation. Be advised, the amount I am talking about is $.01, but, as they, it's the principal of the thing.

The price of pm hasn't change since premium membership became a thing.   Haven't heard of  "grandfathered" pricing...  

Upset over a penny because of the way they're charged for premium membership doesn't make much sense to me.    

 - Since when you started (and still true today) all but the one PMO cache could have been accessed with a basic membership.   :)

Auto-renew without the customer setting it is bad business. It's taking advantage of people who stop geocaching by getting another year's fee. I auto renew nothing.

Yes, since March 2007.

I have not noticed that.  The price was $30 US for annual membership in 2007, and it's $30 US for annual membership today.

 

Are you paying annually, monthly, or quarterly?

By whom?
