Calm has a wonderful paid subscription that gives you full access to their continually growing library of meditations. Their subscription is a great investment in yourself and I highly recommend it.
You can subscribe to Calm at their advertised price ($59.99 USD/year) here: https://www.calm.com/subscribe
Below, instructions on how to pick your own price for Calm (ranging from $19.99/year to $95.99/year).
“How much does Calm cost?”
Calm is advertised at $59.99/year or $12.99/month. I pay $59.99/year for Calm. Calm offers a range of choice in their pricing plans. You can pay anywhere from $19.99/year to $95.99/year. You can select the price you want from their subscription management page on your Mac/iOS/Android/Google device. You won’t see these pricing options in the app.
Here are instructions on how to adjust your subscription on the Mac. If a reader on Android sends in similar instructions, I’ll include them in a future email.
I’m sharing this information so that you are aware of all your options for subscribing to calm. This way, if you enjoy Calm, you can subscribe to Calm at the price that meets your budget. I’m paying $59.99/year for my subscription.
[Mac] Your Subscription Price Options
For 5-minutes of your time, you can subscribe to Calm for as low as $19.99/year. This is a bit of a convoluted process. Let’s step through it.
Here is how to do this in the App Store app on a Mac.
This process should work any time up until your renewal date (as far as I can tell).
- Open the App Store on your Mac
- Click “Store” in the menu bar
- Click “View My Account”
- Click “View Information” in the top right of the screen
- Scroll down to the “Manage” section
- Under the “Manage” heading, find the ‘Subscriptions’ item
- Click ‘Manage’ to the right of “Subscriptions” (screenshot illustrating this step)
- Find “Calm” in your list of subscriptions. Click ‘Edit’ for ‘Calm’
Now you will find a treasure trove of pricing options.
Here, you can adjust your subscription. Calm offers prices ranging from 19.99/year to 95.99/year.
“Is it ethical/moral/right to switch to a different plan?”
You are asking a great question.
I know that Calm has made the business decision to offer this plan at this range of prices.
If you switch to a different priced plan, you are not hurting anyone.
Using this method, you can subscribe to 1-Year of Calm Premium for $19.99.
You can subscribe for $95.99/year, a great way to support an app you love by paying them more money.
You can pick the price that matches what you’re willing to spend. As you consider continuing forward with a subscription to Calm Premium, this option is on the table for you to consider.
