# Loophole In LingQ's Membership Fees

I’ve noticed a sort of loophole in LingQ’s membership fees. Let’s consider a period of three

months.

• BASIC USER: A “basic” user pays, in total, 30\$ for three months of membership.

• PLUS USER: A “plus” user pays, in total, 117\$ for three months of membership, but the system

gives him 9000 points. If he ever asked to redeem those points, he would end up paying 117\$ -

90\$ = 27\$ for three months of membership*.

• PREMIUM USER: The same thing applies for a “premium” user, although at the end of those three

months, if he asked to redeem the points he received in the meantime, he would end up paying

237\$ - 225\$ = 12\$*.

Sure, in order to do this “trick”, a premium user would need to start out with a minimum of 237\$

in his bank/paypal account, but that is not so improbable. Especially when we take into account

that, if he did this throughout the whole year, he would end up paying only 48\$.

• I’m assuming paypal fees are negligible.
