Hold onto my turtle. The WaniKani Sale Begins (Dec 18, 2019 – Jan 8, 2020)

have-you-heard-the-good-news

Have you heard the good news? You haven’t? You must be new around here. Please hold onto my turtle while I explain. WaniKani Lifetime memberships are on sale. They’re $100 cheaper than usual. If you have a current annual or monthly membership, unused time will be prorated (so, it’s a bit cheaper for you).

This happens only one time per year, it’s our only sale, and the dates line up perfectly with Crabscension, which are the prophesied dates for when the Cosmic Crabigator is to descend from the heavens to pick up the devoted (read: Lifetime Members, of course) and take them to Planet Kanji to live out the rest of their days in happiness. Turns out that prophecies are almost always wrong, so we’ve been doing this sale only once per year every year for a while now. But! This is totally the year that Crabscension will come to a close. I just feel it. Once we’re all taken away by a giant Crabigator spaceship to a planet made of kanji there’ll be no more sales. Fair warning.

tl;dr WaniKani Lifetime memberships are on sale. They’re 33% off until January 8, 2020. Read more about the date of Crabscension or just skip all that and go to your subscription page to upgrade.

May the Crabigator squeeze you in its loving claws. Snip snip :crab:, snap snap :crocodile: to you all.

Finally bought it! Decided I wanted lifetime at level four, but realized it was cheaper to buy a yearly subscription and just wait for the Christmas party (•ө•):heart:

Well, well. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. All hail to the Crabigator’s wisdom of offering a sale just as I was about to join the cult anyhow!

I’ve been thinking about picking the lifetime offer for like two months. And some days ago I saw that e-mail, that sale began on 18th… and my sub was to recharge on the 18th… and I took the hint. This morning I did it. I’m a lifetime member. There’s no escaping me. :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp:

So like, just to check, the explanation is over now, right? And that means I have to give the turtle back? Without any other options?

Im investing in a life time sub cause everytime i start and stop I always come back to here to study my Kanji.

The fact i keep coming back means there’s something valuable here and its worth investing in… also when my wife looks at our credit card statement she’s going to tell me i need to get to level 60 to justify the purchase haha

See you all at level 60

Just got lifetime. And since I still had some time left on my old subscription, I got an additional 35 cent discount. :smile:

Besides all the cult stuff, why do people upgrade to Lifetime?
Getting that purple circle next to your avatar in the forums.

I was not aware of that, am I stuck with the purple circle for all eternity? Or will the gold medal from reaching 60 override it and I will finally get rid of this purple thing?

What will you do with all this Lifetime money?
Also, funding the development of our number one feature request: 99¢ incorrect review undo micro-transactions. We’re hoping to get these launched by April 1, 2020.

Awesome! But, for April 1, 2021 I hope you will get the automatic levelling, I may not have time to do all the reviews, so I should be able to pay for a bot that does reviews for me.
