My subscription runs out today and I am thinking of just holding off until you guys do another black friday deal. Can I get a CR member in here to answer that for me? Will you guys be doing the Black Friday All-Access Membership like last year?

Thanks,

Kri

Nobody here knows for certain, except maybe some CR staff people. However, even if they did know, I doubt they will be able to say anything on it (otherwise they would have already). When they're ready, though, I'm sure they'll make a big announcement on it on the Site News area or something. I would expect an announcement possibly on Thanksgiving Day.

In the meantime, once your subscription ends, u could ask for a guest pass in the 48-hour All-Access Guest Pass sticky thread in the anime sub-forum. I've literally been living off them myself for the last week or so. =)

I have to wonder how many upset posts there would be from users if CR didn't do the Black Friday deal this year (i.e, decided to shift it to another date to be less predictable)?

I would expect CR sees some tailing off of renewals around this time of year due to anticipation of this deal, although only CR would know if this were reaching problem proportions.


Frankly, in the past my 12 month subscriptions expired a bit before the annual deal, and as I had no interest in drama, I just opted to pay the $10 extra rather than deal with the gap and the possible surprise of a $100 renewal the next year if I forgot. Given that All Access now also covers manga, I'm considering opting for it this year, especially given that I had to shift to monthly for a while last year, and I am now up for renewal in January this time.

There will be a Black Friday deal again this year, although it will be a little different!

I never even thought about the guest passes heh. I'll definitely be using the ones I have left and it looks like someone sent me one as well. Thank you Meziarogue for that. I'm not sure if I should be excited about this difference or not Bjaker. Guess I'll have to wait :-)

I'm thinking about buying subscription during this year sale. My current subscription ends 15, and I have a question.
Can I buy it while already having premium account or do I have to be free user?

You could purchase it even if you are already a Premium Member.
It will show up as Prepaid and the membership will kick in once your current one expires.

Though at this point in time we do not have any details that we will be doing the same Black Friday Deal again this year.
Please keep an eye on our Site News for future updates!
