I was thinking about getting a subscription to the online store but can't decide on basic or deluxe. I'm a new user and thought for the money to get the deluxe but will I be over my head in images? I tried the 2 user codes that were in one of the earlier posts and today they don't seem to be working. Any new codes out there being cyber Monday?

I don't have a code for you, but I'd think t better o go with basic, and then upgrade if you find you need more. I've got basic and struggle to find enough shapes each month to spend my credits on. Mind you, I already have 1000+ shapes, so that might have something to do with it.

I went with basic and have never regretted it. I shop primarily clearance and sales and about halfway through the year had enough great shapes in all the categories I was interested in that I could also buy some full price ones each month if I wanted. Then they had their BF sale and I really feel set! I have nearly 800 shapes (not all of them bought in the store; always grabbed the free one they offer and then have lots of other freebies and ones I've made myself) and an slightly panicky because I think that is more than I can use.

I used the code summer and got 20% off, but it took a minute to update it, and I thought it was not taking it and then BOOM--there it was!

I went with the middle subscription.

I used the code last week(summer) and went with the deluxe subscription. As a new owner I thought it was the way to it was only 2.00 a month more than the basic with the code.

7 years to get here... So now what?

I think I started with Basic the first time I subscribed, but I found that it wasn't even close to being enough so I upgraded to Premium. When that subscription ended, I waited for a sale and got the Deluxe, but I've found that my wishlist is constantly growing and I don't ever seem to have enough credits for everything I want! I was going to upgrade to Premium again, but this Black Friday sale has been great and I've managed to get everything I've wanted (and I even have about $16 left) so I think I'll just stick with the Deluxe... for now!

That's my island!

I just signed up for the deluxe subscription using the code "summer" and it took it without any problems.

I started with the basic sub and I haven't had the need to upgrade in a year. If you start with the basic and find you need more credits each month you can always upgrade.

So if I go with the basic now and use the code "summer" I do save a little money.... just a few bucks. I can then later upgrade to deluxe if and when a better promo code comes out? I tried to use the code "black" or "eighteen25" earlier this morning it seemed to work but I was not sure which one of the subcriptions to buy so I waited and those codes no longer work. When I used the two previous codes I was able to save more but again it's not working now.
