With so many things on kids’ shopping lists, many parents have become all too familiar with discount codes, coupons, and the rush that comes with finding a good deal. 

This unique school year might have you looking for ways to fit virtual learning resources into your budget. But you still want to be careful about where you spend your money and save as much of it as you can. We completely agree! 

If you're considering a Premium Membership to encourage your child to answer more math questions, help them master key skills and give you insights into their learning, we want to help you get the best deal.

That’s why we put together a full review of all our Membership offerings to help you save as much money as you possibly can!

What does a Premium Membership include? 

Before you spend money on a Premium Membership, you might wonder: what does it even get my child? What's in it for me? And is it worth it?

Premium Memberships unlock extras that help your child love learning and give you brand-new features that help you track and support your child's learning.

When your child becomes a Premium Member, they’ll automatically get exclusive in-game perks like: 

  • Full access to all game areas
  • 100+ pets, gear and accessories
  • Extra in-game rewards and prizes

And while they're having a blast exploring Prodigy, you'll get access to three new parent features:

  • Practice Areas — See sample questions of the skills your child practiced and what areas they need extra help with.
  • Classroom Learning — Peek inside your child's classroom with a look at current assignments, past achievements and future work.
  • Practice Sheets — Print off custom worksheets tailored to your child's learning journey, and use them to reinforce key skills. Plus, every set of worksheets come with unique Prodigy artwork for your child to color!

Exciting extras keep kids super engaged and excited to play Prodigy! This means:

  • More questions answered
  • More curriculum-aligned math skills mastered
  • More time spent practicing math (yep, they’ll even choose it for their free screen time!) 

It's a win-win. More Prodigy time = more ways for you to understand how they're learning and find easy ways to support.

When your child is motivated to answer adaptive math questions in Prodigy, you'll see positive results during the school year and help them develop a growth mindset to achieve success throughout their learning journey!

Ways to save on the cost of Premium Memberships 

How much does it really cost to be a member on Prodigy? 

Are there ways to make it more affordable for your family? 

Let’s find out! We’ll give you a full breakdown of each of our offerings. 

Before you start, ask yourself these questions:

  1. How many children do you want a Premium Membership for?
  2. How long do you want your Premium Membership to last? 

Now read below to find the option that best fits those answers.

1. How many children do you want a Premium Membership for? 

One child — Individual Premium Memberships 

Individual Premium Membership option

Advantages: 

  • Perfect for families with one child who plays Prodigy
  • Lower total cost for one child compared to the cost of multiple children

Considerations: 

  • More costly for each child if you want two or more Memberships
  • If you want to purchase an additional Membership for another child, you would have to cancel your current individual Membership to access the family discount. 

Two or more children — Family Premium Memberships

Family Premium Membership option

Advantages: 

  • Perfect for families with more than one Prodigy player in the same household. 
  • Saves 25% on the cost for each child. 

Considerations: 

  • You’ll spend more money overall than you would for one individual child
  • If you remove a child and only have one active Membership, you lose the family discount 

2. How long do you want your Premium Membership to last? 

Note: All Memberships automatically renew at the end of their given time period. 

Between one and six months — Monthly Premium Membership

Billed: 

  • Once every month 

Advantages:

  • Good for indecisive Prodigy players — monthly payments give you the flexibility to cancel your Membership whenever you like
  • Payments automatically renew each month 
  • Individual payments are lower

Considerations: 

  • Most costly option in the long run (especially if you keep your Membership for more than six months) 
  • More frequent payments

Cost per child — Individual Memberships (USD):  

  • $8.95 monthly. This works out to about $2.07 weekly or $107.40 yearly.

Cost per child — Family Memberships (USD):  

  • $6.72 monthly. This works out to about $1.55 weekly or $80.64 yearly.

Less than a year — 6-Month Premium Membership

Billed:

  • Once every 6 months

Advantages: 

  • Good balance between a short and long term commitment
  • Better value than a monthly Membership 
  • Less frequent payments

Considerations: 

  • You won’t save as much. For one 6-month period, you’re only spending about $12.18 less than the full cost of a yearly Membership
  • Bigger commitment than a monthly Membership
  • Larger individual payment than a monthly Membership

Cost per child — Individual Memberships (USD):  

  • $47.70 every six months. This works out to about $1.83 weekly, $7.95 monthly or $95.40 yearly.

Cost per child — Family Memberships (USD):  

  • $35.78 every six months. This works out to about $1.38 weekly, $5.97 monthly or $71.56 yearly.

A year or more — Yearly Premium Membership 

Billed:

  • Once every year

Advantages: 

  • Perfect for children who love Prodigy and will stay engaged throughout the year
  • Better value and lowest cost overall — cheaper than keeping a monthly or 6-month Membership for the same amount of time
  • Much less frequent payments

Considerations:

  • Bigger commitment
  • Larger individual payments

Cost per child — Individual Memberships (USD):  

  • $59.88 per year. This works out to about $1.15 weekly or $4.99 monthly. 

Cost per child — Family Memberships (USD):  

  • $44.91 per year. This works out to about $0.86 weekly or $3.75 monthly.

So, which Premium Membership plan should you pick? 

Now that you’ve seen all the possibilities, you can make an informed decision on which plan is best for your family. 

Based on our review of each option, your best value is a yearly family Membership plan. This is perfect if you have more than one child who wants a Premium Membership and are confident they’ll enjoy it for the rest of the year. 

If you choose this plan for two children, you’ll save about $124.98 when compared with a year’s worth of two individual monthly Memberships.

By the end of the year, that’s like getting a free Membership for one child, and then some!

But this plan won’t be a win for everyone — it all depends on your needs.

Think about the advantages and considerations for each option to figure out what’s right for you, and what will help you save the most in the long run.
