$20 (£14.3) Humble Bundle Wallet Credit with 12-Month subscription

Found 31st Mar
The $20 credit is back and considering that Humble Bundle is planning to make a Premium subscription, this could save more money (we will see what IGN will decide though).

Utterly terrible move IMHO, the humble monthly is already fairly expensive IMHO though does sometimes deliver great games. Plus who exactly is going to pay $12 per month for the second best tier? It will be totally devalued. Had concerns that the buy out might compromise the integrity of Humble Bundle and seems it might be happening unfortunately...

Could you elaborate on the premium subscription? Is the humble monthly price going up?
I'm torn whether to go for it, but thanks for the info - I might have to check if I have a discount for a Humble subscription lying around!

There is a customer survey doing the rounds, the proposed changes sound pretty grim.
The gamble is whether customers on a 12 month subscription would transfer to a Premium tier.

The existence of a survey doesn't necessarily mean that there will be changes. I wouldn't suggest worrying just yet.

100% agree. Humble monthly works at the moment precisely because of its value add at that price. Adding multiple tiers would be a terrible idea.
Wow I didn't know about the premium idea doing the rounds. So thanks for the heads up. I'm already subbed up through to Feb/19 so I don't think I can take advantage of this promotion. And with the chance that my sub gets devalued I'm not sure I would anyway!

I filled out the survey its gunna be bad news fr us game collectors. Saving grace could be resale of game to humble if already owned... i will likely stop buying anyhoo
Im assuming if you buy a year theres no way to pause a month if the early games dont seem great...

Tempting but is a slight gamble imo, especially with the ign take over who knows what way it will go. This could be a tactic to get people in it for a year? The last 2 bundles have been good but whos to say the next 2 wont be awful :s

Subscribing for a year isn't really much more of a 'gamble' than doing so month-by-month - you're never going to know the full contents of a given month's bundle in advance. However, I've now been subscribed for about a year and a half and am yet to be significantly disappointed by any month.

WOO! Thanks Illusionary might as well buy the year now, i missed the last $20 bonus by a few minutes last time.
Thanks for correcting me

Also does this mean we would avoid the price increase if we get the year now?

The price isn't planned to increase, so there's nothing to avoid.

Haven't done it myself but would imagine it is the price for the full year upfront otherwise it's basically the same as the monthly plan, aside from the commitment to stay a year, which they would probably have a hard time trying to enforce if payment were not taken upfront...

Already fairly expensive?? Do you usually pirate your games or something??

You obviously aren't familiar with bundle sites, as far as bundle sites go and indeed even humbles own bundles up to beat the average price range, their monthly tier is definitely in the high end considering sites like Fanatical for example can put out great bundles (admittedly older games) for a pound or less sometimes.

Yes, it's obviously cheaper than buying games individually at RRP, but come on, this is a deals site who is going to be doing that when you can wait a bit and get them in a bundle for about 1/4 of the price of one game. IMHO the fair way to judge it is against other bundles, which is where the 'fairly expensive' comes in.

So no, I don't pirate games at all, there has never been less reason or excuse to considering the great games you can get for pocket money prices...

In this case, though, the higher price-point of the Humble Monthly typically comes with a markedly highly quality and/or prominence in the games included, as compared to the typical offerings from Fanatical, let alone Indie Gala. The same is true of Humble's weekly offerings, to a slightly lesser extent. There's a reason why when bundles from Humble are posted here they usually attract a lot of heat, while those from other bundle sites often struggle to hit three figures.

I am very familiar with bundle sites I pay $12 a month for the humble monthly (cheaper for annual subscription), the top tier of the average humble bundle is $15 for about the same quality of games. Fanatical bundles are usually alot cheaper but not top tier games and even on the rare occasion they do contain triple A titles they tend to be older games. As for IndieGala its 90% Indie games as the name suggests. There are also a handful of other bundle sites but they contain shovelware and are not worth mentioning. So please enlighten us where are all these other bundles that contain the same quality of games that the humble monthly has at a fraction of the price?

The problem is you are being a bit of a game snob here - you dismiss other far cheaper offerings like Indie Gala and Fanatical just because the games aren't AAA. Who said games have to be AAA to be any good or worth your time or money? Lots of great indie games out there. Why should it matter that games on Fanatical might be a bit older? Games aren't good based on the date they came out. Don't mean to be rude but hate the prevalent (especially in the console space) attitude that anything not AAA is garbage by default.

Sure if you only want to look at AAA humble will most likely win easily, but that is a very blinkered view to take, especially on the PC where being able to play games not available elsewhere like lesser known indies is a big plus point...
I've read all the replies here and accept everyone's reasons for not wanting a premium subscription but, just thinking of the flipside, I don't see how it's that bad an idea considering that multiple tiers is how most bundles on Humble Bundle work and the Monthly bundles are actually the only ones that don't follow the trend.

Of course there are a few different ways that it might work - there might just be two tiers, and there might only be one game in the higher tier, and it might be one of the early unlock games, so in that case you would know exactly what you're getting and how much you're paying for it. Or it might be that the higher tier has surprise games, with or without an early unlock, in which case it's a gamble as to whether you're going to get something that you want - but then any Monthly bundle is a gamble in that respect, so the only thing a higher tier is going to do is give you a choice of how much to gamble.

At the end of the day, it's not like they're going to charge you $5 more for a single extra $1 game. I've always gotten more than $12 worth of games from the Monthly bundles, and I'm sure if they added an extra tier at $15 or $20 and the extra games were the same sort of value proportionately it would be great. Now, a price increase for the same sort of value of games, or even less, would be another matter altogether...

The issue is that the options proposed pretty much just downgraded the rewards associated with the 'tier' equivalent current arrangements, while introducing a new, significantly more expensive tier that maintained the rewards at roughly the same level - a lose-lose prospect for subscribers. You're touching on the same point with your last sentence here.

Of course, at present none of various options are actually intended to go ahead, and hopefully it'll stay that way.

This is the main problem, it will devalue the $12 tier, who wants to be subscribing to the 2nd best (or third best if three tiers) bundle, people are bound to feel short changed. If they had done it the other way around and left $12 subscribers on the top tier and introduced maybe a $6 and $9 tier then that wouldn't be so bad, course not enough profit that way either.

Also not a fan of the fact the charity donation is so poor on the monthly too (think it's only 5%). One of the things I like best is that you can make the other weekly bundle purchases 100% donation to charity, which I do as a matter of course, as I know most ppl will just leave it on the default split that typically favours humble more than chaity...

Well, 5% is a lot better than the 0% that other sites offer, at least!

Also, FWIW, I'm wholly with PressPlay's post above. I'd be very surprised if you (and others reading this thread) understand (and for most, agree with) exactly the point that they're making in their comparison with Fanatical and Indie Gala.

I also feel that I should point out that most games from Humble's bundles, either monthly or weekly, are still from "indie" devs rather than being "AAA" - but at a quality tier some way above those from other sites.

We in my last sentence I was making a distinction between a devaluing price increase and the addition of a higher tier, although I suppose the two kind of go hand in hand because adding a higher tier would probably increase the price and possibly devalue the lower tier. I haven't actually seen any of the proposed options because I didn't get the survey.

You would know all about stupidity, kinda like saying im completely wrong without explaining why or that i know exactly what you mean when you have no way of knowing that.

Regardless, you are all confusing how well known a game is with its subjective quality. Just because you heard about, watched or saw it reviewed somewhere before doesn't make it better. Imho finding a great game ive never heard of before on fanatical or indie gala is much more rewarding than playing a aaa or high profile indie game on hb, where i had a pretty good idea what to expect anyway...

Yawn. I never said you were completely wrong I said your response had nothing to do with with the point I was making and is why I did not feel the need to write an essay countering it. You're the one that is confused because you're still trying to argue with me over things that I did not disagree with.
