I don't believe I will get billed again, but if I do, I will investigate the ad-blocker thing before I "bail". Thank you!

We CAN do this; so let's GO!

You can't get billed again, right? You paid the one-time fee!

I just use a free ad blocker, no ads on any site.

Wow. That's bummer for new members! They will probably end up charging everyone but if they bill me again, I'll more than likely just drop out. Thank you for letting me know!

"Maybe it's the Google Play app (only) that charges $4.99 every month? "
Nope. Has nothing to do with an app, as you can have Premium without ever using an app.
SparkPeople did away with the one time fee and now charges $4.99 every month.

"$29.99 one time payment on 8/9/2016, no more payments are required!"
Lucky you.

Hi Kathy, I'm in WW too. I won't find out until Friday's meeting, but I guess they now are implementing a new program called "Freestyle" that has 200 "0" points foods, including chicken, beans, peas...Not sure how THAT would work! I'm a Lifetime Member who is paying again because I'm currently about 20 lbs. over goal, but I'm not sure I'll renew when my current subscription expires, depending on how this turns out. Best wishes!

We CAN do this; so let's GO!

Hated the ads. Will pay extra just to not see them anymore. Just joined Spark. Was with Weight Watchers for a long time but they just changed their points system (again). I think they keep changing to encourage new people.

I don't get it? Maybe it's the Google Play app (only) that charges $4.99 every month? I subscribed online via my home PC. $29.99 one time payment on 8/9/2016, no more payments are required! I don't plan to put this on my phone, especially if you'd get charged $4.99 per month when you can get it for a one-time fee (so far). I will stay in as long as it remains a one-time charge for online subscribers. Anyone else? One-time vs. monthly charges? Thank you and have a great day/night!

We CAN do this; so let's GO!

I hadn't heard of it. How much does it cost?

I really like Spark Premium - a big plus is no more annoying ads!!! I do like Spark Coach and you can start over to go through the initial course over and over. Sometimes I have been away from Spark People for a few weeks or forgetting to log on and doesn't matter. Good investment for me

"Does Premium provide better foods lists? "
No.
It provides access to a coach weekly and extra reports.
It also gets rid of ads on this site (which you can do on ALL sites with a free ad blocker).

I like it. I feel it helps support spark given that there is so much here for free. And, the spark coach and check ins are helpful.

I find lots of food lists on myfitnesspal by googling. Then enter into my tracker.

I'm using Spark premium. I like it because of the reports. Also, you have access to a coach once a week. I haven't used that yet.

Does Premium provide better foods lists? I struggle sometimes finding common foods or struggle to find a food that is in the middle of a long list. Maybe I'm asking if it provides a better search algorithm.
