Hello everybody,

I want to renew my Proz-membership and noticed that I do not have enough Brownies in order to get a discount. As far as I know there is the possibility to give Brownies to another person. Therefore my question: Does anybody have lots of Brownies and is willing to give me 2000 Brownies? That would be wonderful!

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi Jutta,

I tried to donate some of my 13,939 browniz to you, but ran into a problem. See the error message below.

"Something went wrong...
Jutta Deichselberger is already a ProZ.com member. You may only donate browniz to non-members colleagues."

Aren't Browniz now worthless after the latest price increase and new levels of membership? Nov 2, 2016

Hi,
I thought that browniz are now worth absolutely nothing with regard to getting a discount on Proz membership. Has that decision been reversed? Can we still use browniz to get a discount? That would be great.

In reply to Paula's explanation
Please note: In all fairness, I should qualify my comment about the price increase. It is definitely considerably more for those of us with partial jobs membership who also benefited from a browniz discount. For us the price will almost double. My comment may not apply to other membership rates.

Browniz points cannot be used to obtain a discount for the moment Nov 2, 2016

Hello everyone,

I just wanted to clarify that it is not possible at the moment to use browniz for a discount. On the other hand, the new, discounted price of the Standard package (the price went down, not up) is actually lower than the browniz-discounted price of renewing had been up to now.

Best regards,

Paula

OK, so if, under the new regime, Browniz can no longer be used to get a discount on the membership subscription, what CAN they be used for?
Is there now no point in collecting Browniz?
Paula, please clarify Proz members on this point.

Yes: what are they for? Although I have quite a few, I was not given any discount the last time I renewed my membership.

and no use for them (just like Tomás). I'll gladly give part of them away to other colleagues, new or old. Proz should think of a way to give use to Browniz...

A discount with browniz points is now available Nov 3, 2016

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that if you have 4,000 browniz points or more, you will be eligible for an additional discount of 10 USD over the already discounted prices shown on the membership page. This discount will be shown in the checkout page of the payment form.

Best regards,

Paula

That's fine:-)

Will there also be a discount for Browniz points with "auto-renewal" of the membership?
Is it only possible to transfer Browniz from members to non-members?

Thank you in advance for an answer!

Best regards,
Jutta
