I wrote about this back in 2014, but I thought it deserved another mention. There’s a clear upside to long-term premium accounts: they are cheaper on a per-month basis. Usually much cheaper. Lifetime accounts are even more obvious. In terms of multihoster / debrid services, as well as premium accounts from filehosting sites themselves that tend to run $12 USD /month on average, getting that rate down to $5 USD per month or less can make a lot of sense.
