Hi,

I'm really angry about this. As a Logos Now user I am suddenly confronted with an increase in price of over 100%. I feel that I was lured into the Now plan. I cannot afford to pay out anymore so I shall loose all the benefits of Now.

I feel as if I have been really fooled. I have spent out loads of money on modules that are useless with any other software and I can see that within a couple of years I am going to be working with an out of date software package. Really beginning to think I should have spent the money I've spent on Logos with Olive Tree with whom I have considerable resources.

So much for Christian organisations - they'll bleed you dry as well as any other outfit.

Tony Dowden.

Ok, what does this mean? I thought I had purchased this study bible, apparently not.

I just stick with the purchase model - causes less confusion and stress.

All these wonderful new ideas Logos Cloud and Logos Now - I want to buy software and its attendant components not lease - pay loads of money and if I stop paying I still have nothing. I want it on my PC/Mac - nowhere else.

The whole software world has gone mad.!!!

I will never get Photoshop until there is a purchase option.

I will always avoid software where there is no purchase option.

Sigh Kevin

Considering FL Study Bible is free, if you were renting it for $30 per year, you were being totally ripped off.

Sean:
I've not gotten any mail yet. Can you share yours? What exactly are they doing to mitigate this horrible 140% price increase?

I suspect we're all getting some type of favorable deal, but you'd need to wait to find out the specifics, as they may do something different for you to mitigate the price increase.

Hope it brings a smile to your face. Smile

As PetahChristian accurately stated, sharing emails with anyone would not be helpful, as it's specific to each customer. We did include a promo code to help Logos Now customers either upgrade their Connect subscription or purchase a library or feature set. Our hope is that solution will help ease the transition into Faithlife Connect, along with the increased benefits value.

Good Morning Chris.  This email we are supposed to get... Is that the one explaining the program and it has a coupon code for a future purchase?  Or will there be more specifically tiered emails to certain individuals?  I had LN at first, then dropped it for a bit, and then came back.  I got an email with $100 off L8 I believe.  I just wanted to make sure I'm not missing any emails here on this.  I accidently subscribed to the forum post yesterday and woke up with 65+ emails.  I hope I didn't delete anything important Smile

How were you transitioned to the most expensive plan? I was given the "Starter" plan... and this line was the killer in my email

"We’ve migrated you to Faithlife Connect Starter because it’s priced at $89.99/yr, a savings of $10."

Except I paid $99 on January 2... 

So good on ol' Logos for figuring out how to sneak more money out of us.

DAL:
Well, are you satisfied with the explanation

Yes, DAL. Satisfied and very grateful.

DAL:
why are you going to end up paying $234 per year instead of $99.99 per year?

Well, I already used one of my Faithlife Connect benefits to get 6-month access to a $450 Mobile Ed course. Considering that we can get access to any two courses a year, that may be a $1500 benefit just by itself (depending on your course selection).

I also got a free Lexham Press book. Considering that some were dissatisfied that the free LN books were Public Domain titles, we can now choose an additional book each month from many modern titles that FL publishes, including EEC volumes. Let's estimate that benefit at $350.

FL was generous with LN benefits which paid for the cost of that membership, and FL appears to be even more generous with just those two FL Connect benefits, which are helping to pay for this membership.

Free coupon to use on L7, L8, or Faithlife Connect? Free extension of Logos Now to November? Free courses? More free books? FL gave me a whole lot of something, and they didn't have to do any of that.

I was initially resistant, due to the sticker shock, but after reading the email and  all the benefits that FL is providing, FL has been nothing but very kind, and I am very thankful for the savings.

I wonder what determines if you go to Starter or Essential...

I wasn't impressed with the Lexham selections as there weren't much to choose from so I wonder as time goes on if they'll add more.  Overall though, when the dust settles this might turn out to be a not-so-bad-as-originally-thought.  I still don't like having cloud books shoved into my account though.  I don't understand why they need to make us take the cloud.  I'm guessing it is easier to manage on their end.

In the good old Now days, were there Mobile Ed courses available for free perusal??  If so, what was the % discount offered if buying them at the end??

Under Connect, can one buy them at a discount when the ''free'' time is up??  Is the % off known??

No, we never got a Mobile Ed course as a free preview. The timeline has specifics.

We would get a coupon code for 40% off for the previous month's preview resource. I expect the discount will be the same for FL Connect.

That's a good question. I don't know.

Maybe FL will add that option, if it doesn't exist already.
