Increase in monthly subscription cost?
A few months back I converted a coworker from a EveryDollar app user to YNAB. A huge win considering he was using the free version of the Dave Ramsey app. He has since moved on to a new job in a related field and today I had to call him and as we were waiting for a few things to load we started discussing our budgets 😄
I was surprised when he mentioned that the price was increasing and that he had received a notice that he had to approve the increase in itunes. I am assuming this is something that itunes does when there is an increase in a recurring subscription. I have the yearly subscription so I have not received any notice. I've looked on here and can't seem to find an announcement regarding the increase. I attached a screenshot of what it shows on the app store on my phone now regarding pricing. Am I just not looking in the right place?
I love the crap out of this program, foibles, bugs, badly designed aspects, obfuscatingly-cheery support staff and all.
I cannot fathom a world in which it would be worth paying more than I pay for Hulu. Evernote, which is critical to my day-to-day operations and contains data I need for my entire life, is $40 a year. $11.99 is criminal.
My free trial just ran out and I REALLY like YNAB, and I can afford to pay $84/year, but I’m not sure it’s worth that to me! It’s tough because it would easily be worth $40 or maybe $50, but like WordTenor it to the price of other apps or services. This is almost as much as Amazon Prime or Instacart for far less benefit. I’m really torn!!
Here's a weird and different perspective:
I'm not a fan of the subscription. But. EVERYONE asks for a subscription these days. Even Microsoft Word wants a subscription. NO-ONE let's you buy software outright anymore.
I hate the general concept and the way things are. I'm not saying it's right. But it doesnt surprise me in the slightest when YNAB does what everyone else does.
Mind you, I only turned up to YNAB a month ago. I wasnt here for YNAB4.
