Annual Subscription Renewals

Head's up!

I know there were quite a few DISers who joined W101 when it went live last September. I wanted to remind all of you that, if you bought an annual subscription, your anniversary date is rapidly approaching. Mine, for example, is September 2.

A couple things you may (or may not) know:

Your subscription will renew automatically if you do not cancel.
Also, it will renew at the current subscription rate. Unless they happen to be doing another discount promotion then, that rate will likely be higher than what you originally paid.

Thanks for the heads up. I have been watching the calendar as well. My date is Sept 7th. I have already taken my credit card number out and plan to use gift cards until they run the $60.00 per year special again which they seem to be doing every few months.

Good news for both new and renewal subscribers:

Wizard 101 is running the $60/year promotion again (through September 7).

HOWEVER --

I checked with KingsIsle Support and was told that, if you wish to renew at the special rate, you have to go to your account page and actually select the $60 rate. Your subscription will NOT renew at that rate automatically, even if your renewal happens during this promo period.

I checked through the renewal page, and it looked like I was set up automatically to renew on 9/2 at the $60 rate.

Same for me.

If it was not for that special rate, I was thinking to continue on Crowns. Since I am all done, I was thinking of buying only the areas I needed and buying a monthly subcription once in a while, like when a new world comes on.

I am still undecided. I have until 9/07/09 to renew. I was going to stop the subcription and go the crowns route but that $60.00 a year is hard to pass up. My daughter and her friends have gone back to Pirates of the Caribbean Online so she doesn't want to play anymore. I have been playing Dragonica for over a week and haven't even logged onto Wizard101. Oh, what to do!

It may look that way, but I sent an email to KingsIsle Support specifically asking if my subscription would automatically renew at the $60 rate. This is the response I received:

Quote:
Hello,

Unfortunately that is not the way it works. If you would like to ensure you are charged again for $60 instead of the normal $79.95 price you will need to login and make a purchase for the year at the $60 price. This will set the system to Queue up that pricing plan when your current year ends.

Hope this helps!

Wow, thanks a lot for the info. I feel they are going to get tons of complaints starting Sept. 2nd...

How do you do that? There is only one annual rate shown and it is $60. Do we have to go in and buy a year before they renew it and if so will the renewal go through too?

Guess it is EMail to KingsIsle time.

It could be that you need to change to trial and then select the discounted annual option. If you change your account to trial, it continues running until the expiration point so you have time to get it figured out.

That's what I did -- but it took me about 10 minutes to figure out how!

I didn't unsubscribe or switch to trial first. If I remember the steps correctly: After logging in at the site, I went through the "Update Subscription" link, made sure the 12-month plan was selected, and then picked the "Show Total" button at the bottom in order to complete the purchase. (I also updated my credit card info at the same time.)

I think the whole process should have been a lot simpler and clearer. But I guess I did it right, since I got a Purchase Confirmation email showing the discount rate. If there are any problems, you can bet they'll be hearing from me!

I'm assuming, based on the email I quoted above, that the "new" discounted purchase is now queued up, rather than the automatic renewal. Time will tell.

My renewal date is this week, and I've been going back and forth about whether or not to renew. I have to say that I have gotten a bit bored with the game (in part because my friends don't seem to be on at the same time as me anymore, but also because it's the same basic thing over and over again), and I also get frustrated by the game (if I get pulled into battle in grizzleheim one more time I'm going to scream). I'm not sure if I want to spend the $60 on another year when the concept of the game stays the same, and only the location changes.

I guess I have a couple more days to decide.
