I'm hoping for the return of this deal too! I always renew my membership on Black Friday The newsletter sent out a few hours ago makes me believe it WILL be back, or at least it will be some kind of discount.
I would love to get another membership for $50. (And the $10 coupon off a Daily Deal was a nice bonus). I always look forward to that deal this time of year. I need to save money where I can. As with the previous 2 years, I order a membership on the last day it's offered. If it isn't offered this year, I'll be sad and just buy an Anime membership. I'm not paying full price for an all access membership. (And before anyone says buy it monthly--no. I do yearly so I pay for it all at once so I don't have to worry about "Surprise! You have no money to PAY for this!" I always assume I'm going to spend money this time of year and plan for it. Monthly would NOT work for me).
