Let’s Explore – Silhouette Design Store Subscriptions

I’ve got some great news today that will save you a little bit of money if you are using designs from the Silhouette Design Store.
First, let’s explore what this all means.

What is a Silhouette Design Store Subscription?

A subscription to the Design Store means that you pay a set price per month and you get a certain amount of credit for that price.
For instance, if you choose the Basic subscription plan, you pay $9.99 per month and get $25 in credits to spend in the Silhouette Design Store.
On average most designs are $0.99, which means that if you were to pay full price, you could buy about 10 designs if you spent $9.99 per month.
But, with a subscription that money goes even further.
You would get about 25 designs for the $9.99 spent each month.
All of this is based on a $0.99 item, which means with a subscription you are paying an average of $0.40 per design.

I started with the Basic subscription to test the waters and found that I loved being able to shop or just go click a design and buy it without a second thought when I had credits to use.

The higher the subscription, the greater the savings.

A Deluxe Subscription = $14.99 per month = $50 credit
*average cost is $0.30 per design
*if credits are depleted you get 25% off all designs until your next credit

A Premium Subscription = $19.99 per month = $150.00 credit
*average cost is $0.13 per design
*if credits are depleted you get 50% off all design until your next credi
*Free download of all “Last Chance Designs”

A Diamond Subscription = $29.99 per month = $250.00 credit
*average cost is $0.12 per download
*if credits are depleted you get 50% off all designs until your next credit
*Free download of all “Last Chance Designs”

All subscriptions allow the credits to be rolled over for 60 days, just make sure to use them before that time limit hits or they expire.
(I never seem to have a problem using up mine.)

These examples above are all using the 12 month option, but there are also options for 6 months and 3 months too.

How to save more

There are a couple of ways you can save even more.

Pay the full year in advance.
This is what I do and it gives you even more of a discount.

Use the credits when there is a sale.
I save things to my wishlist all the time and then when a sale comes along, I’ll go through my wishlist and decide what I want to purchase.

For instance, if there is a 50% off sale in the Design Store and you have a Basic Subscription, that means that your credit will go twice as far.
Instead of the average of $0.40 per design, you will getting those design for $0.20 because they are 50% off.

Purchase the subscription when there is a sale.
Right now use the code SILSECRETS and save 15-20% off the subscription cost.
Click HERE and enter the coupon code at checkout.

This sale ends July 4th.

If you miss this sale, don’t worry, with my code you will always get 10% off subscriptions or if you can, wait until another sale comes along.
They happen occasionally throughout the year.

This was a question brought up last week on my Facebook group,
Silhouette Secrets+ with EllyMae,
and I didn’t want this sale to pass by without explaining what a subscription is.

I love my Silhouette Design Store Subscription!
I started with the Basic and found I like it enough to keep on going.
Each user is going to vary in what works for you.
Some find they love it, while others may not, but I want to let you know how to save the most you can.

I love to design my own, but I don’t always have time to do that or I am overly-critical of my designs, which then means I end up spending more time arguing with myself than I do cutting and getting the job done.

Hope this helps explain a little about subscriptions and you get more things done with your Silhouette!

Let me know if you have any questions on my Facebook group
Silhouette Secrets+ with EllyMae.
I would love to see what you are creating with your Silhouette machines!
