My premium subscription just ended and to buy a new year of subscription I need to pay ₹6000, but when I had checked last week(I have no screenshots to prove the same) I could gift someone else a subscription for just ₹4000, so in that case I could have just bought myself a new subscription by gifting myself, but I had not done it because I didn’t expect a sudden raise in price for a new year of subscription after the subscription ended.

I would like to know if this some glitch I have encountered as this doesn’t make sense

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Also when I had first subscribed four years ago the price was ₹4000 and a 20% discount had popped up so I had only paid ₹3200, a year ago when I renewed the subscription it was ₹4000 again with a sudden 20% discount appearing again which I had taken, so I expected it to be 4000 again, maybe with the discount or not which didn’t matter, 6000 caught me by surprise, especially because I could gift a premium subscription at 4000 just a week ago

If the price has been raised I totally understand, just want to know why it could not be notified that the price will increase once my subscription ends

Did you go to Brilliant through someone's referral link? E.g. brilliant.org/numberphile

I did by mistake after I was checking for the reason of the increased price, it dropped down to 4800 from 6000
