- On January 1, 2021, all grandfathered Nitro Yearly subscriptions will be returned back to Nitro Classic subscriptions! Click here to read more details!
With all of the updates that are happening (as mentioned in this blog post), we wanted to give more details on some of the extra ✨ shiny ✨ perks to thank our supporters throughout all this time!
If you currently have an ongoing subscription from before Wednesday, October 10th, 2018, 7:20:00 PM PDT, we wanted to give some extra boosted perks to thank you for all the ongoing support!
- For Monthly Subscribers
You'll be able to access Nitro subscription perks for $4.99 per month until February 1st, 2020 or until you cancel the subscription (whichever comes first)!
- For Yearly Subscribers
You'll be able to access Nitro subscription perks for $49.99 per year until January 1st, 2021 or until you choose to cancel the subscription (whichever comes first).
Exclusive Early Supporters badge
And as an extra nifty treat, an early Nitro supporter badge will be given to anyone that has ever had a successful transaction for their subscription to Nitro any point in time prior to Wednesday, October 10th, 2018, 7:20:00 PM PDT.
But what if I've had a refund/canceled my subscription?
- If you ever got a full refund or a disputed charge (and never had a successful transaction with us), sadly Wumpus doesn't have a badge for you!
Note: Badges cannot be swapped from one account to another! No switcheroos!
What's extra extra nifty is that this badge stays forever even after your subscription is canceled or runs out as a sign of our eternal gratitude for supporting us before we were cool!
What happens if you try to cancel your special grandfathered subscription?
Your payment lapsing (after the grace period of three days)
Upgrading the grandfathered Nitro subscription from monthly to yearly
So make sure to think thrice with your subscription before officially pressing that "Do it Anyway" button....because there's no going back!
Note: Switching between different credit cards is okay though and won't cancel your subscription! ✅
What if I'm Currently a Grandfathered Nitro Yearly Subscriber?
On January 1st, 2021, grandfathered yearly Nitro plans will be returned back to Nitro Classic plans.
You can continue to pay the same $49.99 annually, and your Nitro perks will change from $99.99/year Nitro Perks to Nitro Classic perks.
In other words, that means you'll no longer have access to 2 included Boosts, Go Live stream capability will change from Source to 1080p 60fps, and upload size will change from 100MB to 50MB.
- If you have active Boosts from your grandfathered plan, these will deactivate after a three day grace period. As a Classic subscriber you'll continue to get 30% off any Boosts you purchase.
- Your Early Supporter badge will stay, that's yours forever :)
As always, we genuinely appreciate the support you’ve given us over the years, and we're always thinking of new ways to add to Nitro and Server Boosting. If you have any suggestions for Nitro, please let us know here.
How can I upgrade my Legacy Subscription?
If you'd like to keep your current Nitro features, you can upgrade your subscription to the $99.99/year or $9.99/month tier of Nitro!
To directly upgrade to Nitro Yearly, you can directly click on the Upgrade Now button in the top notification bar to upgrade your subscription in the upcoming new year!
You will then be charged the prorated difference for the upgrade from $49.99 to $99.99!
This will be a one-time charge on Jan 1, 2021.
You will not be charged until Jan 1, and your billing date will not be changed.
After Jan 1, 2021, your subscription will continue to be charged yearly until you cancel the subscription.
