Forcing premium sunscription

anonymous 6 months ago in Android App updated by anonymous 6 months ago 8

Please stop forcing the premium subscription on every article on me. I can't read anything on the app unless I subscribe so I'm forced to go to the mobile website to read anything. I couldn't even read the 5 "free" premium articles because of this issue. Please stop or I will just uninstall the app and use the mobile website instead. Thank you

While it is SA’s prerogative to run its business in what it thinks is the most profitable manner, disenfranchised readers can vote with their eyeballs, clicks and dollars to support other businesses and the writers whose insight and guidance they value most.


SA is effectively no longer a free resource, and should be seen and promoted as such. Since it’s new paywall policy dramatically limits non subscribers from reading articles and comments, article feeds such as the one at CEF Connect may eventually add the word Subscription to its feed to alert individual CEF Investors. 

SA had very little competition in CEF education. Eventually the marketplace will fill that void .

That is a very arrogant response as far as I am concerned. Your users are your best prospects to sign up

I would think. I will spend my money elsewhere where I feel like the company i am doing business with values the relationship.

Too much competition out in the investing world for me to do business with an arrogant company. Arrogant companies usually are humbled by the marketplace at some point. Moving to a subscription model could have been handled much better in my judgement.

Seeking Alpha WAS a great source of info for investors, but their success has gone to their head.  They are now an ARROGANT source by posting articles and then hiding them behind the ads for a "premium" service. If you do not stop this practice, I will go elsewhere.

Remove my email from your list since you won't let me read any of them anyway.  Why even send emails?

putting relinks of events, press releases, etc behind a $30/mo paywall when the company releases it for free it complete and utter bull

I understand offering premium analysis behind a paywall. 

But not free links and news releases. 

after 8 years, I’ll be finding a new solution.
