A somewhat technical question here: I'm finding Spark Coach to be great to keep me accountable and I'd like to sign up. However I don't have a credit card- does anyone know if it will accept those refillable ones you can buy, since it's a 1 time cost for the year?

I'd encourage you to sign up for the free trial to see what the program is like. You are not assigned a specific coach, but can submit questions about your program and one of our experts will provide an individual response.
I hope that helps,

I would like to know more about this as well, I just found it..
Do you get assigned your own coach or does everyone that is a coach help?
How do you coaches help exactly? or is it they assign you certain things and you do them and you have to prove things by the scale or inches?
I am interested as well, but need to know more about it.

I was going to purchase the sparksolution anyway so sparkcoach free trial was an added bonus. I find its helping as every morning with my breakfast shake I check in and thats motivating me for the day.

I did the 1 week free trial when it was offered.
now I have another free period because I did the Spark Solution pre-order.
both times, it's served as a great reminder to get back to basics. The stuff I **know** but like to forget about.
and this time I joined the plateau busting team.

SparkCoach did cost money when I tried it -- but for how I was using it -- (not emailing for personal help or anything) -- I decided not to continue paying for it. My experience it was a more detailed check-in, and some thought-provoking messages/challenges. But my experience was not like having a personal "coach" to check in with each day.

Would like to try it..just not sure about the money part of it
You do not have to pay for the Spark Coach you pay only if you want to be able to communicate with them via email. That is what I understand. I have been using it for a few weeks. I like the daily check in and morale boost.

Thank you so much for clarifying that for me! :)

Yes, Sparkcoach costs money. Iti's a premium motivational and guidance service that SP offers. however, the trial's about a week, I believe, and you don't have to enter any credit card information. If you decide you don't want to use it, you simply let it expire, and you don't have to. :)
It will save your progress, so if you choose to go back later, it'll be there. It's around $8-9, but they run periodic specials.

I recently re-joined spark, and I noticed that here is a SparkCoach button in the corner of my page, so I clicked through an "joined" that. But I cannot figure out for the life of me if it costs money, and if so, how much, and when?
