I was actually a bit surprised to see that if you take the $9.99 a month founder’s subscription plan, you can actually get a further discount on your subscription price if you pay for 3, 6, or 12 months at once.
This saves you $1.22 on 3 months, $4.19 on 6 months, and $9.89 for a full year.
While discounts for paying for a subscription in larger blocks of time is a standard practice in the industry (except, of course, when it comes to SOE Station Access) I was not expecting Turbine to extend this practice to the founder’s pricing model.
The whole founder’s pricing selection screen is here:
One item of interest is that you have until May 24th to enter you pre-order and retail product key, so you still have time to get in on the founder’s plan if you can find a pre-order.
You can also change you mind about which founder’s plan path you wish to take up until the first billing cycle hits, 30 days into your subscription.
More details are available from the LOTRO Pre-Order FAQ.
