Spark Coach--In my Own Words

Saturday, August 18, 2012

I was all set to join Spark Coach at $5.00 a month until I realized
after the first 3 months cost rises to $8.00 a month. In our economy
I feel this is out of line, considering so many members can only participate
because it is free.

I am sure I will hear from many members who disagree, but I live in a country
where I can state my beliefs.

    Thanks for posting this. I was not sure of the price and if it was worth it. I think Sparks is good but the rates are a tad high!!

    It would probably benefit me, but I'm currently unemployed and additional expenses must be curtailed. Other people here have said good things about it, but to each his own. Regular SparkPeople is good for me. When it comes down to it, losing weight is a choice I must make with every meal choice--no online program can do that for me.

    Hi there,

I thought that I might be the only sparker who decided against it... I do need more accountability right now, so I am attending WW meetings along with sparking. (I am not using the WW e-tools that I could be using--there are only enough hours in a day.) Anyway, I think that SP was trying to respond to needs and probably to make themselves financially solvent. They pay a lot of support people and the only places I see money being made are the ads and in the Spark Store. For those who can afford it, great. For those who need extra support, I am glad its there too. I didn't need it on top of things and I don't quite trust my internet providers enough to take it on at this time anyway.
Thanks for having this conversation--it might be considered touchy, but I think SP likes the honesty going on here.
Gentle hugs,

    I joined for the two free weeks and so far it's not that much more helpful to me. So maybe just another way of separating me from my money. Don't know if I'll keep it up when I have to pay for it. SP has done wonders for me but this extra thing...probably not worth it.

    I haven't tried it because the standard program works for me. I get the impression that you don't like things that have an introductory rate and then the rate goes up once you're using the service. Me too.
