Shoving the “Premium” member.

“Subscribe to our premium services” – You guys keep getting those crappy messages from different applications. Right?

  • Date someone for a year that’s a relationship. Date them for a month and that’s a Spotify premium free trial

Sup, what’s this all about? 

First of all, what’s the difference between subscription and premium? 

Subscription is opting for a service.

Premium is getting extra features & deals from the provider of that service

Subscription may or may not be paid.

Premium is always paid. 

My premium channel!

Coming to why several orgs. came up with the plan of premium membership-  “MONEY” 

Money talks everywhere. You’re fooled with all those adv. & marketing (including me). 

They make you believe that opting premium will lessen your expense with more services. 

I’ll be honest, “the more” services part is quite fairly true but, what you pay is way more than the services you’re acquiring & yet you think it’s a fair deal. 

I won’t blame you. Your money is your choice. 

After the surge of the internet in 2012, people started using various applications. 

Major ones include, amazon, uber, linkedin, p**hub, spotify, youtube & blah many more. 

There’s only one thing connecting them & trust me it’s   not the quality of product or content it’s the      

“Join our premium membership” part. 

I don’t need to describe what you all will get after joining membership of any one of these or other. 

Guess you’re familiar with that. 

“”””””My nieces asked me to kill a wasp for them…

I told the that that’s a feature of “Uncle Premium” and their attitudes only get them the basic subscription!””’

Only thing I don’t like about spotify is its filthy ads & prime members of amazon getting early access to deals. But! They paid. Me too.

Sometimes you’re so annoyed & just spend those savings on premium. I understand. 

One day there will be a tag of premium on the human body & that’s the part I’m afraid about. 

Take care.

  1. Tanishq, this is a very interesting and innovative post.
    “Uncle Premium” – Hilarious!
    I’m guilty of being a premium member too. Why? Because in basic you get nothing. Isn’t that the idea?
    We’re all being fooled because no one resists the herd mentality. Oh well, there are greater perils, but this can’t be ignored either. I love how you infuse humor into serious issues. Very effective. 🙂

  2. Questioning the lesser wrong maintains the balance. I too have the premium subscription of many platforms. Some seem wrong to opt while others are right. At the end of the day, it’s our choice.
    Thanks for the appreciation.
    Have a good day ahead.

  3. That was haha awesome & pretty much true. The basic & premium plans differs too much in customer’s view yet the finance difference is too less.
    Thanks for passing by.

  4. Uff! Thanks for this post. You’re lucky to be so wise and awake already. Tell me about it, I watched a Netflix documentary about these social media sites having premium features and I learnt exactly what you’ve presented in this post. It’s all business. The 30 day free premium on apps is the biggest trap! After 30 days of ad-free watching, you’ll be frustrated when the ads show up again and will subscribe immediately. They’re clever and we keep letting them outsmart us.
    Thanks for helping others wake up too. More people need to know this.

  5. Glad someone is aware about this major issue already.
    However, those 30 days trial too are offered only after we provide our credit card or visa info. That way even if someone don’t go for premium after 30 days, they will notify you every damn where.
    And don’t you think just like I-phone, people show off by opting for premium services even when they need not to. (not everyone)

    My moto isn’t limited to discourage anyone for going premium but, I want everyone to take a moment & think- Do I really need this?

  6. You just reminded me that the reason I can’t download the podcast I like is because I don’t have a premium spotify account. Sigh. I guess I will be content with what I can get.
