(Updated To Include 6 & 12 Month Packages)

I saw a couple of other similar threads, but did not see this... I was wondering how much it cost in dollars per day to have a premium account.  Of course, this depends not only on which Premium Package you buy, but also how much you spend to buy the Gold.  I figured since I already did the math I would post it if anyone is interested.  Here are the results:

(Cost per day is rounded... cost per 30 days is more accurate)

There are 6 Premium Packages Available:
360 Days @ 24000 Gold (costs 66.6 Gold/Day)
180 Days @ 13500 Gold (costs 75 Gold/Day)
30 Days @ 2500 Gold (costs 83 Gold/Day)
7 Days @ 1250 Gold (costs 179 Gold/Day)
3 Days @ 650 Gold (costs 216 Gold/Day)
1 Day @ 250 Gold (costs 250 Gold/Day)

25,000 Gold @ $99.95 Package - 250 Gold/Dollar
Premium Package
360 Days - $0.27 / Day of Premium ($7.99/30 Days)
180 Days - $0.30 / Day of Premium ($9.00/30 Days)
30 Days  - $0.33 / Day of Premium ($9.90/30 Days)
7 Days - $0.72 / Day ($21.60/30 days)
3 Days - $0.86 / Day ($25.80/30 Days)
1 Day - $1.00 / Day ($30.00/30 Days)

12,000 Gold @ $49.95 Package - 240 Gold/Dollar
Premium Package
360 Days - $0.28 / Day of Premium ($8.33/30 Days)
180 Days - $0.31 / Day of Premium ($9.38/30 Days)
30 Days  - $0.35 / Day of Premium ($10.50/30 Days)
7 Days - $0.75 / Day ($22.50/30 Days)
3 Days - $0.90 / Day ($27.00/30 Days)
1 Day - $1.04 / Day ($31.20/30 Days)

6,500 Gold @ $29.95 Package - 217 Gold/Dollar
Premium Package
360 Days - $0.31 / Day of Premium ($9.21/30 Days)
180 Days - $0.35 / Day of Premium ($10.37/30 Days)
30 Days  - $0.38 / Day of Premium ($11.40/30 Days)
7 Days - $0.82 / Day ($24.60/30 Days)
3 Days - $0.99 / Day ($29.70/30 Days)
1 Day - $1.15 / Day ($34.50/30 Days)

3,000 Gold @ $14.95 Package - 200 Gold/Dollar
Premium Package
360 Days - $0.33 / Day of Premium ($9.99/30 Days)
180 Days - $0.38 / Day of Premium ($11.25/30 Days)
30 Days  - $0.42 / Day of Premium ($12.60/30 Days)
7 Days - $0.90 / Day ($27.00/30 Days)
3 Days - $1.08 / Day ($32.40/30 Days)
1 Day - $1.25 / Day ($37.50/30 Days)

1,250 Gold @ $6.95 Package - 179 Gold/Dollar
Premium Package
360 Days - $0.37 / Day of Premium ($11.16/30 Days)
180 Days - $0.42 / Day of Premium ($12.57/30 Days)
30 Days  - $0.46 / Day of Premium ($13.80/30 Days)
7 Days - $1.00 / Day ($30.00/30 Days)
3 Days - $1.21 / Day ($36.30/30 Days)
1 Day - $1.40 / Day ($42.00/30 Days)


In other words, if you buy the $99.95/25,000 Gold package and get the 30 day Premium account it costs you 33 cents per day.  If you get the 7 day Premium account instead it costs you 72 cents per day.

The results make one thing very obvious.  It is a better value to get the 30, 180 or 360 Day premium accounts regardless of the Gold Package you purchase.  It is actually a much better deal to buy two 1,250 Gold @ $6.95 packages (the least cost effective gold package) and get a 30 Day Premium account than to buy the 25,000 Gold @ $99.95 (the most cost effective gold package) and get four 7 Day Premium accounts.  Even if you only play half the days, it is still a better deal to buy 30, 180 or 360 days of Premium than if you bought any other package and played every day.

I did not take into account the Premium Account deals they have every once in a while such as the 30 day Premium account for 1750 Gold a few weeks ago (30% off).  If you can wait for these deals you can get even better prices per day.

Thanks guys... I added the cost per 30 days as well.  This again shows how important the 30 day premium account is price-wise.  It costs over 100% more to buy premium in 7 day intervals than 30 days.

Thank you for the info.  At this point I don't see myself getting the 6 or 12 month premium, but I will continue to buy the 30 days.

Still new to WoT. but enjoying a ton! That is alot of cheddar though for a 12 month term.
Haven't gone that route yet, but, may make sense to do for the long term.

Thanks for the information.

Good post. Thanks.
BUT I have newbie question -- if during your paid time you acquire a tank,
do you get to keep it after your paid time is up? Thanks~

Yes, you get to keep all tanks you aquire.  Premium just increases your experience so you can get new tanks faster.

Bumping this for the 1 Year special...

With 3 days of premium at 250 Gold (83 Gold/Day), this is the same price per day as 30 days at 2500 Gold.  I will be purchasing just the 3 days I need to take even greater advantage of the 5x event.

7 Days for 650 Gold is more expensive per day (93 Gold/Day).
