Hello CR!

I am an avid anime watcher and now long time premium member of CR. I started out with a 12 month anime only subscription, and it has been exactly what I wanted. Last November, I took advantage of the $50 Black Friday sale, and extended my subscription with a 12 month All Access subscription, which has since become my current subscription. I was browsing my account today, and something caught my eye. My current membership type, as I said, is listed as All Access. As a result, my renewal option set to take place next February tells me that it will renew for the $100 12 month All Access package. That's not what I want. Come February, I want to be renewed for the significantly cheaper anime only package. But I can't find any sort of option in my settings that says "When I renew, renew to this type of membership plan". Is there a way to do that, or do I need to cancel my auto-renewal and renew manually come February?

Obviously, I have plenty of time to resolve this, so I'm not terribly worried. But it would be nice to know if this can be resolved

Cancel the auto renewal, then get the anime package in February, and/or wait until November and hope for another black Friday sale.

The suggestions from the post before this one are really what I can assist with.
We will have another Black Friday deal, but obviously that won't be until November.

Thanks for the reply! I'll set myself up to renew manually, and I'll keep an eye out come November

Waiting for the CR deals is the best option. I buy a yearly subscription on the part of the year, like black friday or christmas where they have an awesome deal.

I think I have done 3 yearly subscriptions and I got all three of them for a great price. The best deal I remember was when I had the All-Access Membership (Both Drama and Anime). I got it on either a black friday or during christmas and the all-access sale was cheaper than a normal plain anime-subscription.

Or I may have gotten it when CR first started offering the All-Access subscription and had it on sale, where I then upgraded from my anime-subscription to the all access. I can't really remember, lol. All I know is that it was the best bang for the buck I have ever spent on entertainment, even including my Netflix subscription. (Before the price hike)


Basically, my point is since the CR deals are few and far between, when you see one, I recommend putting the money down for a yearly subscription at that price as in the end you will save more money.

However, once I finally finish my degree and get a decent job again I wouldn't mind paying the normal prices just to give more money to CR. If I ever won the big lotto (Like the powerball) CR is one of many companies that I would be giving large investments to.
