Last Ever $99 for 12 Months Deal

 Available via RocketHub (limited qty.)

Today we’re announcing the official retirement of the $99 for 12 months ArtFire account special. Since 2009 we’ve offered a discounted year special three times, and on each occasion the response has been great! As time moves on, however, we lose the ability to offer our specials for the same price; $99 isn’t what it was 4 years ago.

This isn’t the end of pre-paid special offers, but it is the last time you can get 12 full months for $99. You’ll also be supporting Maker House, an artisan makerspace in Tucson, AZ sponsored by ArtFire. As an extra special benefit you’ll also get the Maker House Supporter Artifact and we’ll mail you your very own Maker House Charter Member pin and logo sticker.

To get this offer – support the Maker House project at the $99 level on the RocketHub Project Page. Note: Once you’ve funded the RocketHub project at a level that grants any ArtFire account time, you’ll be contacted within 48 hours by an ArtFire staff member. We’ll confirm your exact shop details and award your artifact and account time promptly.

For sellers who’ve already funded the RocketHub campaign at the $25 or $50 level, you can increase your pledge by logging into your RocketHub account, visiting the Maker House project page, and funding again at a custom amount of $74 or $49 to bring your total contribution to $99. You’ll be processed and awarded 12 full months of time.

    Hi, What happens after the 12 months at $99? For instance, when I signed up I got a special rate of $9.95 a month, if I wanted to pay the $99 for 12 months (saving me about $20)would it go back to the $9.95? Thanks- Tricia

    Hi Tricia,

    Yes, the price goes back to what you originally had it – $9.95 for example.
    Thanks for your question!

    Have a great day & let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you.

    Cheers.

    Hiya! Just purchased the $99 for 12 months for Maker House! 😀 Just wondering – does it start today, or after my monthly subscription runs out? Many thanks!

    I don’t understand what this deal is. What do you get for the $99?

    You’re right Borneabatikraft, the deal starts after your monthly subscription runs out. Thanks for helping out Maker House 🙂

    Kathie, for $99 you get a 12 month subscription deal with ArtFire – saving you some money, which is always a good thing. This is the last time ever ArtFire will offer a deal like this. Your donation will help launch Maker House, the first artisan makerspace in Tucson, AZ., which we’re proud to be a part of.

    Great questions! Keep ’em coming if you’ve got ’em 🙂

    I signed up for the $50 then upgraded to the $99. I got the robot artifact on my site, but today it is gone. ??? What happened?

      Hello Karen,

      Are you sure you’re not looking an item page instead of your shop page? It should be there. Let me know if you still don’t see it.

        Victoria,

        It looks like the artifact isn’t playing nice with all browsers. I thought the same thing as Karen at first because in Chrome it doesn’t show up… but if you click on the empty spot where it should be, you get a little blurb about Maker House as if it is there; so I checked Firefox and it is actually visible with that browser. I hope that info is useful.

          Hi Shannyn,

          Have you tried clearing your cache on the Chrome settings? Let me know.

            It seems to have come back on its own (mysteriously, sometime in the night, lol)… and it looks like Karen’s is back as well, so good new all around. 🙂

            Thank you for your time, Victoria!

    I want to sign up for the $99 deal but I was wondering something. I still have time left on my current membership. does this get added to my current membership or do i lose what I have already paid for by doing this deal?

      Hello Stephanie,

      The $99 deal will take effect once your current membership is up – you will not lose what you have already paid for.
      Let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

      Have a great day & thank you for helping 🙂

    Hi! I am a brand new Art Fire seller. I saw the Art Fire special on my studio page yesterday as I was setting up other studio functions and signed up for this great deal. I happened across this blog while still learning the “ropes” of Art Fire and saw your “retirement” announcement. Isn’t the offer good until 8/21? Jackie

      Hello Jackie Bower,

      You’re half right 🙂
      The offer is good until either, the crowd funding campaign is over on 8/21 or until the 500 spots run out (half of which are already gone).

      Hope that answers your question. Have a great day & let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

    I am in the process of getting a website composed to start selling, but have not joined Artfire yet because I do not have any finished product or listings ready. Would this deal be in effect if I wished to sign up with Artfire? Would I get that $99 deal? Thank you.

      Hello Linda Schroeder,

      The way you can sign up to ArtFire as a seller with the $99 deal is by first joining as a buyer, which is free.
      Once you’ve joined make your $99 donation on RocketHub to help launch Maker House, then contact one of our representatives at caleb@artfire.com with your desired shop name.

      There’s 8 days left in the offer.

      Let me know if you have any other questions. Have a great day!

      Chen Chen,

      Not anymore 🙁 the deal ended on 8/21 – but you can still be a part of the ArtFire seller family, if you aren’t already, for only $12.95 a month.

      Have a great day & let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.
