4. Premium Membership Special Offer

To soften the price increase for Premium Members, we are also offering a one-time opportunity to “pay your membership forward” at the historic annual rate. Thus, if you want to pay your Premium Membership forward for either one year for $199 or for two years for $398, we are offering this opportunity through December 31, 2011. For each year paid forward, 12 months will be added to the expiration of your Premium Membership.
