Today I received a email about upcoming Kitely plan changes starting Wednesday 1st January 2014 which will affect new users joining Kitely and existing users using silver or gold plans. Firstly new users after 1st January 2014 will no longer be able to choose the Bronze, Silver or Gold Plans. Instead it will be just one plan called “Premium Account” which will cost $19.95/month and come with 5 free time based regions. Included is the ability to visit any time-based world for free.
Secondly any Kitely member using Silver or Gold plans now will be able to keep their plans with extra benefits after 1st January 2014. This is a limited time offer until 31st December 2013 so order now if you are interested.
On January 1, 2014 we’ll make several significant changes to our offering. As part of these changes our existing plans (the Bronze, Silver and Gold Plans) will no longer be available. However, users who are Silver Plan or Gold Plan members at the beginning of the year will be able to keep their plans, and we’ll even upgrade them with significant benefits that will not be available to people who join Kitely later. If you aren’t already on one of these plans then order one before the end of the year so you don’t miss out on this limited-time offer.
The New Premium Account
Users who join Kitely after Jan 1 will no longer be able to choose the Bronze, Silver or Gold Plans. These plans will be replaced with just one plan, called the “Premium Account”. A Premium Account will cost $19.95/month, and will include 5 free time-based regions and the ability to visit any time-based world (your own or anyone else’s) for free.
Silver and Gold Plans Grandfathered In, With Extra Benefits
If you are a current Silver or Gold Plan subscriber, or you order one of these plans before Jan 1, then you’ll be able to keep them. We will also upgrade these plans, as follows:
The Silver Plan will continue to cost $20/month for 10 free time-based regions, but now it will include unlimited free visits to time-based worlds (instead of the 120 hours/month that are currently included in the Silver Plan).
The Gold Plan will continue to cost $35/month for unlimited free visits to time-based worlds, but now it will include 30 free time-based regions (instead of the 20 regions that are currently included in the Gold Plan).
We encourage you to take advantage of our limited-time offer to upgrade to the Silver Plan or Gold Plan before the end of the year, and get the extra long-term benefits that will be provided exclusively to those plan holders. This offer will not be available after Dec. 31, so if you want these benefits you should order now.
