How much does a one month premium account really cost?

I know how instructables already has loads of information without being a pro. But we have this lab project that we have that we really need to do in order to pass and we would need to download a pdf file for the codes for the program. Im willing to subscribe for one month since i saw that it would only cost 2.95/month, but then when i look at the check out, it is 35.40 dollars? does that mean ill be charged 35.40 dollars right away when i subscribe? i find instructables really useful and i think i might be able to go back here for our future projects in school but i dont think i could afford to give 35.40 dollars when i think we would only need it for a month,  :( Maybe there could be a one month trial?
Any help or information would be really great! Thank you in advance!

We actually do not have a one month only Premium Membership option.

We have the following options for Premium Membership:


  • $2.95 per month billed annually (this is a yearly subscription that costs $35.40 once each year)
  • $4.95 per month billed quarterly (this is a quarterly subscription that costs $14.85 once every three months)
  • $49.95 for two years (this is a one time payment that when broken down only costs $2.08 every month)

If you are looking for the shortest membership option, I'd suggest selecting our quarterly subscription that will cost $14.85 for three months. If you have further questions about this please contact our support team at service@instructables.com

Hmmm....
That these questions for downloading PDF's and getting a short term membership made me wonder.
Paylpal is being used almost everywhere these days, I think some people would actually value an option to just download one or a few PDF's at a bargain price.
Comparing the pricing for membership I think something we call a "gold coin donation" in AU would be nice.
Pay a dollar or two by Paypal and in return get the PDF of the Ible delivered to your inbox.

Here's some advice. DO a a quality instructable hope it gets FEATURED! You will win a 3 month FREE membership. Over the course of 2 years I have accumulated probably several years of FREE memberships.
