*Some advices by our staff*
- While we are doing our research on this topic, we found out that there are several sites that aren’t transparent with their “free” service. For example, when we went to Grammarly to check out their service, we are intrigued as they have 3 privacy seals on their main page, which isn’t a common thing to see on a site offering free services. We looked around but there isn’t any clarification as of how much does the actual tool cost, not until we signed up for their service and only during the second page of the registration process did we see the pricing of their tools. Here is the breakdown of their pricing:
3 subscription tiers:
- $19.95 for one month
- $39.95 for three months
- $95.45 (sic) for a year
So users, beware of what service you are going to sign up and make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully/check out if they are really free before making any decision.
