If I decide to upgrade my account to Platinum or Diamond, will I have to pay the whole lot again or just the difference?
just the difference. When you go to the page, it will have "membership credit", which is the amount you still have that would be subtrazcted from the total. For example if you had $30 membership credit and decided to upgrad to diamond, then you would only have to pay $70
Just the difference...you can see how much credit you have towards the upgrade by clicking on HOME---Account
That's a relief. If I had to pay the whole lot again I should have gone straight to Diamond!
If you want to switch temporarily, though, you can't switch back to gold without paying more. I did that for a couple days when I was home and wanted to do more than 25 TT problems a day.
If you've bought a year of gold, then switch to diamond for a day for some videos or something, you can use your, say, $25 credit toward the monthly price of diamond. No problems. But then if you want switch back, you have to pay whatever extra to buy a whole year of gold again. Just a heads up.
So basically it's not worth downgrading? (not that I intend to )
They promote temporary switching in the welcome emails, but don't explain it quite so fully. So I thought I'd share what I learned.
"I also wanted to explain one thing about memberships based on a question I frequently hear - you can upgrade or downgrade at ANY TIME without losing any of your membership credit. So if you wanted to temporarily upgrade to a Diamond Membership for one month (or even for a day) so you could watch a video or do some Chess Mentor lessons, you can do that. Then you could downgrade and your remaining credit is applied to your new membership"
