One pretty unknown feature of the new subscription offer is that for every 12 monthly payments KH will give user a $/EUR100 in vouchers that can be used on kilohearts.com

As an owner of old The Works bundle (all plugins up to, but excluding, PP) that seems very tempting to me - I'd pay EUR9.99 per month for a year, collect my EUR100 voucher and use that towards purchasing PP license. Sure, I'd be EUR20 short, but that spread over a year is irrelevant.

The question is then - if I start subscription now, will all my The Works plugins still stay on my account, so that when I get PP license in a year I'll be able to use all of it without continuing the subscription?

I would assume that it would, you are basically just doubling up on your KH plugins. I have one of the bundles with all the snapins and multipass and also the Slate version. Even so the sub for a year to buy PP looks like a great deal.

Yes. All your perpetual licenses will still stay in your account even though they are not used. If you ever stop subscribing they will be still be active and working.

Another question please:

I didn´t know about the 100,-€ Voucher... this makes the subscription a lot more interesting as I do not really like the feeling of a never ending payment so to speak...
Now my question: May I collect the vouchers??? Meaning, if I have supscriped for i.e. 5 years and didn´t spend any voucher before, do I have then 500,-€ to i.e. buy the Ultimate bundle???

From Kilohearts Twitter:

"The twelve months don't have to be consecutive, so if you need to take a break you won't lose out. And the vouchers can be stacked.

How cool is that? 😎"

I did now as well, even though I was only missing Phase Plant and 2 snap-ins. Thanks for the tip antic604.

And to answer your question. Yes, you can start a subscription now for a year, quit the subscription, collect the €100 voucher, buy PP with €100 discount, and continue using your plugins from your The Works bundle.

Thanks - yeah, I already got that confirmed a week ago and subscribed immediately. Sorry I didn't updated this post :)

BTW, the 2nd part of your post I think was directed to Trancit's question about collecting the vouchers?

Actually no, it was directed to you for bringing the subscription up in the first place :)
I didn't know they had one tbh.
