This is soooo very much Memrise’ish again.They bring something out and there’s no information at all, neither in the blog, nor in the forum or elsewhere that I would have come across. And you can’t find the courses themselves either. These courses even introduce a new feature: you get a listening test (with or without subtitles), and I quite like it, too!
But, again, it wouldn’t be Memrise if they would allow you to start one yourself. Instead, you need to wait for the app to offer it to you. It’s really just incredible.
I actually was able to start one of the courses. I got a notice in my Android app last Monday, so I took the French course to check it out. Couldn’t start it in any other language though because I don’t find the courses either and the Android app (probably) doesn’t offer the courses again once you started one.
It’s a ‘promotion’. I got an email on Monday which had a link to the courses and a little more information than appeared in the app notification. According to the email, you have to learn all of the phrases in the chosen course before 31 March to be eligible to be entered into a prize draw.
The page that the link takes you to contains the Ts&Cs for the prize draw. Here is a link to the page I was taken to:
Hi all, thanks for raising this. Sorry that finding and opening these courses wasn’t as straightforward as we’d hoped. I’ve passed this feedback onto the marketing team and we’ll look into what happened for future campaigns As above, you can find all courses and details on the prize draw we’re running here.
I already have a Memrise Pro Yearly subscription. The Travel Courses say that if I finish a course I can be part of the drawing, Yup, That was easy!
But then it says that I have to have the LifeTime Memrise Membership to be eligible for the drawing.
Okay, that seems fair, Plus the discounted Lifetime Membership is a really good deal over the regular yearly price. Super!
But, it says in order to “upgrade” to the Lifetime Subscription, I have to “cancel” my yearly subscription and wait for it to “run out” before I can apply for the LifeTime subscription. My subscription won’t renew until September 2022 by which time the Travel Drawing will have ended and I’m sure the Discounted LifeTime Rate will no longer be discounted.
Am I just S.O.L. here, for both opportunities, just because I already have a paid membership?
