<p>Hello. I can't seem to find the answer and the FAQ is unclear. I just want to know exactly how much I will be paying after the FTP conversion.</p><p>If I currently have a multi-month subscription and continue to pay without interruption, will that price be honored after my current cycle ends?</p><p>The FAQ says "Membership will continue to recur as originally specified by the subscription." If "originally specified" means that the price is only good through the current cycle, then it would appear that my price will go up $3/mo/account after the conversion.</p>

<p>They have said that the prices will remain the same as what current live subscribers pay.</p>

<p>Link please? I'd think that should be added to the pricing matrix.</p>

<p>I couldn't find a solid answer on this either.</p><p>In SmokeJumper's Producer's Letter, he said you can pay 3, 6, or 12 months in advance for convenience, but didn't mention the existing discounts.</p>

<p>I am curious to know that since I use a 12 month recurring, will I get the 500 SC from Dec until my renewal date in April?</p>

<p>AFAIK all the reoccurring rates are unchanged, what is happening is that they are adding a free and silver sub level to the existing options already available on live.</p>

Brasse's response really addresses the StationCash more than the monthly cost. I mean, they're not gonna start charging $14.99/mo for someone who already paid 12 months in advance. To date we don't have a quote addressing this issue.

You will be getting 500SC every month as soon as the F2P changes go in. As one thread was looking at it, that's like getting $5 back every month. I could see why they wouldn't do discounts when 500SC is being offered, but let's hope a red name can come in and clarify this.</p>

I just can't find anywhere that says there will be discounts on the subs themselves for getting the longer varieties after the F2P changes go in. Like how I paid basically $11.99/mo (I think, I'd have to go back and do the math again) for a 12-month membership instead of $14.99/mo for a 1 month.</p>
