Today is the last day to get the LD Subscription but it seems like many folks still have questions about the promotion. I have been emailing back and forth with LD and trying to get some of the confusion cleared up. In order to help you make a more informed purchase decision, I am posting here some further info regarding the offer.
Downloads for the Graphics, Cut Its, or the Lettering Product subscription are limited to $10/product/day.
Downloads for the Combo sub is limited to $15/day. (i.e. You can use get $15 worth of cut sets, or $15 on lettering, or $15 on printables or divide the $15 up. ).
The new LD site will only allow for 1 subscription. If you want to buy 2, you must have 2 LD accounts.
You must claim your $10 (or $15 for the Combo sub) download limit everyday because the credits do not rollover.
The subscription does not include third party artist licensed content. For example, files designed by Sheri McCulley, Nancy Kubo, Patricia Zapata are excluded from the subscription.
The files that you get from the subscription will not be kept in the library.
The Subscriptions will only work on the new site but it will give you access to the LD products that are sold before the new site is launched, as well as any new products as they are released.
All subscriptions will start when the new site is launched and will expire 6 months after.
If you use the MayFlowers coupon, you will get an additional 10% off the price of the subscriptions! The Combo subscription costs only $89.96 with the discount!
Here is some further information about the new LD site.
The new "My Library" will be called "My Downloads". All the files that you currently have in your library now will be transferred to the new site.
The new site will have the same designs that are available on the current site, and LD will continue to add the same amount of new content to it as they usually do.
On the new site, you can continue to purchase the sets individually or you can access the files via the subscription.
The new site will also utilize a point system to reflect the price of the product. For example, a $5 Cut It set will cost 5 points, regardless of whether it is on sale or not.
Here is a sneak peek at how the new LD site will look like:
I updated the screenshot of the new LD site to highlight the new point system that LD will be introducing.
I've just received more info and so I'm adding it here:
- The download window is 24 hours. Once you have selected a file to use your points on, the clock starts ticking! The set that you picked will show up in your library for 24 hours and once that passes, you will not be able to see it there anymore.
- Each subscriber is given 10 points/day which is the equivalent of $10, i.e. basically a $1 - 1 point conversion.
- Points are consistent and independent of sale prices.
- The checkout process is independent of the point system and subscription system. If there is a great bundle on sale that you want, it will make sense to buy it rather then to use your subscription points.
LD gave me the following example,
"If something was on sale for $1.50 and is actually worth $6, they might choose to not use download credits on it. Freebies will have a point system attached to them by default too because they do not stay free. It would be silly for someone to use their points to get a freebie. Instead they need to go through the checkout system like we currently do."
- Coupons can't apply to points.
