Knowing how to go about purchasing subscriptions/files via Silhouette America is something I see people frequently asking about in Silhouette groups. Here is what I did…
My strategy for purchasing in 2014:
- I had a subscription and got $50 per month. Personal…no commercial.
- Get the weekly free one.
- Check out the new clearance/sale and get whatever I wanted.
- Check new images and put on wishlist. Purchase things on sale on the wishlist…or remove from wishlist.
- Buy things on sale.
- Buy what I needed for any project I was doing.
This worked until about July/August. Then I was having too much money built up and files weren’t interesting me as they had earlier.
In 2015, I am going to purchase just what I want for projects. I have enough built up that I should be able to find quite a bit of what I need in my stash from 2014. Right now, I don’t have a subscription. I will probably purchase as needed or do the smallest subscription. This will also free me up to purchase files from other vendors. Since I won’t have a monthly commitment to Silhouette I will use that money to purchase other files from other vendors.
