As of December 31, 2011, we are no longer offering lifetime subscriptions. While the cost of an annual subscription may increase at any time, automatic renewals will be billed at the original purchase price as long as the subscription remains active. If a recurring subscription is canceled or lapses (say because a credit card is denied or expired) any new subscription will be billed the new/existing price. If you're banned from posting or commenting on Daily Kos, your subscription will still be honored, but the no refund policy still applies, even for lifetime subscribers. So be good!
