"We will build good ships here — at a profit if we can, at a loss if we must, but always good ships."

— Newport News Shipbuilding, 1912


This is the best $29 I've spent in a long, long time.

Frequently asked questions

What is enterprise pricing like? Please don't make me "contact you". I hate that.

Okay, fair enough. We don't like it either.

Here's the magic formula for volume pricing, if you've got more than twenty thousand subscribers:

Number of subscribers
per additional 1K subscribers, per month
20,000 — 40,000$5.00
40,000 — 60,000$4.00
60,000 — 80,000$3.00
80,000 — 100,000$2.00
100,000 — ∞$1.00

Annual discount

If you commit to a full year, you get two months free! No need to email me unless you're already on a monthly plan and want to change; you can choose the annual option when you purchase a plan.

Non-profit discount

Are you registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit (or your country's equivalent)? You can get a 50% discount on your plan. Send us an email with proof of registry and we'll get you set up.

When can I cancel?

Cancel at any time — no questions asked. If you cancel a paid plan in your first month, you'll get a full refund with no questions asked.

Can I send as many emails as I want?

All of these prices assume that you're sending at most one email a day to your entire subscriber base.

If you're sending more than that, you'll need to contact us and we can talk about what usage-based pricing would look like for you.

What if I have an unfrequently asked question?

We'd be happy to answer.
