Don't forget by getting this deal, you are going to miss out those random 4$ coupons by pausing

You probably won't get a coupon every month. Even if you somehow managed to get a $4 coupon every month it'd be $96 total. I think for people that stay unpaused a lot this is a good deal, but for people that are rarely interested in choice they should stick to month to month

Bought the Choice a few months ago. Don't think i have tried 1 of the games yet. All of them have some problems if you read the reviews. And i did not even get it for 12 bucks because i was subscribed to monthly some year ago. Last good of Choice/Monthly was Spyro + Crash + COD WW2 + Shenmue and some others. That bundle was an absolute steal imo. Most are bad though.

I've read some interesting comments on Reddit:

  • You can gift yourself a subscription, it is authorized by Humble (no risk of ban as some said): source
  • You will get 12 months of Classic if you're on Classic: source, another source
  • It is unknown if you receive the free month as a coupon when redeeming your own gift (coupon will be applied by December 5th, we will know then)

Thank you for the info! After a year of watching people get those random discounts for pausing whilst being unable to do the same thing, this helps.

Also, confirming that it works:

Now... anyone wanna see if it's possible to add multiple years, or do we actually trust the quality of this thing to stick for that long in the first place...? :D

I did this early this morning (Dec 4th). The coupon still worked for $99 and the banner said I'd get a free month if I purchased the gift before 12/04 9:59am PT.

Bought $99 annual gift subscription. Claimed that gift for myself, received 12 credits for my classic plan. Got an email today from Humble for a coupon for one free month. Bought one month premium Humble Choice, coupon was applied, cost was $0. Claimed that gift for myself and got the December 2020 Humble Choice. 12 months credit remaining. So 13 months of classic credits for $99.

Terms at bottom of email for $99 subscription were: "New subscribers or gifting only".

Hello, I have bought that one year subscription for myself, too. In billing history you can see that you have received 12-month classic plan, so in my opinion you should stay on classic plan after one year. I think 7€ per month is good price.

Apparently HB is charging an extra $10 currency conversion, even paypal only charges about $4! I would really like an option to pay in USD instead. It might also be taxes, this is hard to tell.

found this on reddit
The promotion link from the home page doesn't work for me, it just keeps loading. However, the Gift a subscription button from My Subscription page works and it says the 99$ coupon is applied, so it should be the same but with Humble I am never sure about anything.
You should be able to use this URL to go directly https://www.humblebundle.com/subscription/checkout?gift=true&tier=premium&duration=annual

also this

After the help of support, the link started working fine for me. I was able to purchase an annual gift subscription with the discount and then redeemed it myself! I am still on my classic plan and my next billing date is now in 2022. The only thing missing is the one extra month advertised for gifting, but it could be because I redeemed the gift myself. Still a great deal for existing subscribers!

I guess that it is important to use the link in "Gift a year of Premium Choice for $99 and get one month of Choice FREE" promotion, as there seems to be a parallel promotion for new subscribers that will not work.

Its 99 dollars for games you will actually play[you can but RDR 2/Death Stranding/Control/Sekiro etc] or a lot more games that you may actually not play. I still havent decide what to do. 83 euro are a lot of money on the front especially with a huge backlog we have.

That should theoretically be enough with the information we're provided. I wouldn't risk it with Humble though. I'm still debating with myself whether I should risk redeeming the gift on my Classic plan. Everything points to the conclusion that it should be ok but it's also always unnecessarily ambiguously written.

No point in postponing this any longer. I took a leap of faith and redeemed a gift with my Classic plan active. So far so good.

This is the first time I've noticed the charity calculation contribution button as well. $299.77 since 2014 seems a bit stingy but I guess it's something

Kind Regards,

Hi,

Thanks for writing in! You will not lose your Classic Plan, as it will only add credits of Humble Choice to your account and doesn't change your plan.

Let me know if you have any other concerns!

Thanks,

This is the response i got from HB which can pretty much confirm to people that their classic status will not be affected by adding the premium subscription to their classic subscription.

Thank you. It really seemed too devious to downgrade accounts for accepting these gifts but they have been so coy about the terms so it's hard to know for sure. I guess they just wanted to keep people in doubt as far as it was possible. I, for one, would have appreciated an upfront offer of extending my subscription instead of this roundabout way.

Comment has been collapsed.

From a business sense, that's just bad practice as more people i suspect would have bought it at that price if they knew where they stood and there was no doubt. I personally, did not want to risk my classic plan over this so had to wait until after thanksgiving before they could give me an answer. I bought it with like 8 hours to go before the offer expired. I am glad your leap of faith did not backfire!

EDIT: i see they have extended the deadline for a few more days.

Ok, gifted this to someone.
And it appears I did not recieve a month credit, as it says my next billing is still on the same date (end of December).
Anyone know where I can see my 'monthly credit'?

Also, if I give multiple of this away as gifts, do all the free months get added to my account?

I'm in a bit of a hurry and I don't know if this has been commented already. I received a reply to my support ticket and here's what they say about the extra month:

I'm afraid however, as you are currently an active Classic Plan subscription this would not grant you an additional month to Humble Choice.

They also told to me what steveywonder75 commented above, those credits can be added to an existing subscription and they will not alter the subscription type (you'll remain as a Classic Choice subscription).

I figured that was the case, but someone here kept telling me I'm wrong without any proof.. anyway I took advantage of the deal knowing that I probably wouldnt be able to get the free month, but I'm ok with that since $99 for classic is a good deal regardless

1 month ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

I finally bit the bullet when I read steveywonder75's comment. 82,99€ for a year of Humble Choice is a good deal, even without the extra month. It seems I was lucky enough to pick it when the price was fixed/changed (I checked and the official currency exchange was $99 = ~83,00€) so I'm double happy... for now :P

I am not sure why its fair to lose the extra month since the faq clearly says you can gift yourself if you want to, also nowhere is specified that if you are in an active classic plan you don't get the extra month. But what you can do?

If I check the price right now it's listed as €81.99, which is almost exactly $99.

I didn't really pay attention to the prices listed on the page when I made my purchase since it's printed in bold letters below:

I was charged €91,49 for my purchase 2 days ago but when I check the page now the priced is listed as €81.99 which is almost exactly $99. Seems to be switching between these two prices somewhat randomly

Edit: Just got a reply from a Senior Ninja at Humble. The claim is that it is due to fluctuating exchange rates. Which is pretty much bull if you ask me. Anyway that is the official story regarding this

Apologies for any confusion regarding the price of your purchase. It looks as though you completed your purchase when the foreign exchange rate was set differently which is why you paid a different rate for that $99 USD promotion.
