With the recent release of BOL/247Sports Text Alerts, we thought it was a great opportunity to provide a special offer for our monthly subscribers.
Three reasons why BOL Monthly Members should consider upgrading your monthly membership to annual.
#1. You SAVE money with the annual membership. The annual membership is $12.00 per year less expensive than the monthly membership, that is a 10% discount.
#2. Annual members receive Text Alerts. Get breaking news through your phone via Text Alerts.
#3. Until Friday at 3:00 PM CST, we will give you two (2) additional FREE months to everyone that upgrades your account. These 2 months will be added to the end of your renewal date. Combined with the $10.00 savings, this is the equivalent of almost 1/4 of the year in FREE savings.
If you want to take advantage of this offer (expires Friday at 3 PM) you must follow two simple steps:
STEP 1: Upgrade your account
#1. UPGRADE your monthly subscription to an ANNUAL subscription.
#2. Click the "Upgrade" link/tab located at the top right of the site. The upgrade box is marked in green.
#3. Upgrade your account.
#4. After completing the Upgrade process, you will need to sign up for text alerts.
#5. Click on the "Alerts" link located in the horizontal nav under "Settings" (Located in the "My Accounts" section: See above)
#6. Enter your active mobile number where you would like to receive text alerts.
#7. Check the box indicating which specific alerts you wish to receive. Example: BamaOnLine, Alabama Football
#8. Click "Save"
STEP 2: Send us an email telling us you completed the upgrade process
#1. Email support@247Sports.com and tell Dan that you just UPGRADED your account and would like 2 FREE months.
#2. Please include your BOL nickname, email address, first and last name.
#3. Please make sure you receive a confirmation from Dan that your FREE months have been added.
Note: This is not an automated process. You will have to email Dan to complete the process to get your FREE months. Make sure you get confirmation that your account has been updated.
One last note to our current annual members ... We greatly value your support to BOL/247Sports. The overwhelming majority of the network's annual members came to 247Sports under a similar offer listed above and previously received 1, 2, 3 and in some cases up to 6 or 9 months free before their first billing. Our goal has been for everyone to come to the network under the umbrella of a similar/special offer. If for some reason you signed up for an annual account and did not receive a signup offer > than 7 days, we will add 30 free days to the end of your subscription (if you notify us). If this is the case, please email Dan at support@247Sports.com. We value each and every one of our members. Thank you for your support.

Lucky - what is the difference between text alerts and what the staff tweets? Would the only advantage you would gain be the text alerts IF you don't follow our guys on Twitter?

I just took advantage of your offer and switched to annual. I appreciate the first class way that you guys do business. Thanks.
Thank you and glad that works for you. If you have any questions or issues, please let me know. We really appreciate your business. Tim and I and the staff are in this for the long haul. BOL is family owned and can't say thank you enough to everyone that visits and supports the site. st
When I was a member of the other site before you guys left I could not get text messages because I use Tmobile. Is that going to be an issue here? Thanks
I have a problem with annual members getting text and monthly do not. Why wouldnt you guys do it for everyone?
In those famous words of Mike Price......."it's rollin baby, its rollin. Looks like you put a lot of thought in how to run a site. Good things happen to "good" people. congrats.

just upgraded my account. thanks for my free months (at least i hope dan credit my account)
Yes, BOL spends more money on the monthly subscribers because of twelve different transactions compared to just one. So they came up with a incentive. That's business. But monthly subscribers will get txt alerts in the future.
