No, this isn’t a post on leaving Grammarly, I ended up keeping the writing assistant at a discount. Keep reading, I’ll explain everything.

Onward James! 🐴

I’ve been using the Grammarly writing app since 2015. I love the Grammarly online writing assistant. I use the Chrome extension on the Brave browser. It certainly has its quirks and hiccups, but it works for me.

Back then, December 2015, I paid $68.98 for a one-year subscription. I’m sure that was a discount, even back almost six years ago. The problem is, for me, that price goes up after the first year.

Today, Grammarly is even more of an expense at $29.95/month or $144.00/year. As a blogger, that is a steep price to pay. I’m not taking in huge book advances like a popular dystopian novel author, although that would be amazing. I’m just a humble blogger trying to show the world I have stuff to say.

Anyway, after paying $29.95/month for the last nine months (Over $269 since January 😱) for my Grammarly subscription, I decided it made sense to just pony up and pay out the annual cost of $144.00. That was scheduled to come out of my account tomorrow. That cost has been bugging me for weeks.

For one thing, I noticed new users were getting a 40% discount on their first year. I understand the idea behind giving things away, either for free or at a discount, to get people hooked. After all, dealers have been using that business model in schoolyards for how long? Just sayin’.

Enter AppSumo.
No, this isn’t about AppSumo.
Hang on, I’m telling a story here.

Anyway, I’ve been buying this and that on AppSumo (Here’s $10 to get started with AppSumo *Aff Link), so I decided to see if there were any alternatives to Grammarly.

And there is, Linguix Writing Assistant (*Aff Link) with a $49.00/year deal. After watching several YouTube reviews, I bought it.

I figured I’d save $95, cancel Grammarly and live happily ever after.

Nope, life’s never that straight forward.

I logged into my Grammarly account, said good buy and clicked the ‘cancel subscription‘ button. After another click or two, I was offered a 40% discount.

💲 Now, after the Grammarly discount offer, tomorrow I’ll be charged $86.40 (Just $7.20/month) rather than $144.00. 👏🏻

So, I either saved $57.60 with the 40% off or I wasted $49.00 on Linguix Writing Assistant, I’m not sure which.

Or, did I keep Grammarly plus gain Linguix Writing Assistant and still save $8.60?

Either way, I’m excited to have both for a year.

Now I have another cool blogging tool to review once I get into the thick of the program and decide if Linguix Writing Assistant is anything close to Grammarly’s AI-powered writing assistant. Fun stuff.

(I’m writing this post using Linguix Writing Assistant right now. Before I publish this article, I’ll turn that off, turn on Grammarly and see if it finds anything Linguix Writing Assistant didn’t. I love this kind of thing.)

Here’s How I Got 40% Off My Grammarly Renewal

This is what I did. I’m just documenting what I did. I’m not saying you should do it or even that you can. I mean, if you are sick of the high cost of Grammarly and were seeking an alternative, as I was, perhaps you might find the same discount offer. I don’t know.

🤔 Honestly, I could have probably gained the same deal by contacting them and asking for a better deal. Just guessing.

First, I started the cancel process.

I clicked ‘Cancel Subscription’ in my Grammarly dashboard.

The next three screens are Grammarly trying to determine why you’re canceling with an attempt to possibly keep you as a customer. At least that’s what happened to me.

It was on the third screen where I checked the box “It’s to expensive” and was instantly offered a 40% discount off an annual renewal subscription. 🥳

A pop-up and a confirmation email let me know all was good in the world once again.
