Hey All,

Why do they give premium members 48-hour all access passes to give to their friends, when if they visit the site they either get a 1 free month or two weeks free.

It really makes no sense for anyone to give their friend a 48 hour pass?

I've moved this to Site Support/Minor Questions.

One difference is that when you sign up for the month or two week free trial you need to enter payment information so that you can be billed at the end of the trial. Some people really don't want to do that (if you decide you don't want to pay, you need to remember to cancel before you get billed). With the guest passes you don't have to do that--you get the access for the 48-hours, then it goes away.

On top of what lorreen said, the 1/2 week trials are one time only, if someone cancels and then sees we add a premium only show, the only chance they have to watch it is a.) buy a membership b.) get a 48 hour guestpass and cram it all in xD

Oh, okay, I never knew that about the 48 hours. Thanks for clearing that up
