Subscriptions are contributions that any user can make to the Star Citizen Project. Subscriptions contribute to Star Citizen project development by funding behind-the-scenes shows like Inside Star Citizen in addition to Jump Point, the monthly digital magazine about Star Citizen. This revenue also funds the development and release of subscriber-exclusive perks like the monthly flair series and exclusive subscriber merchandise!
What subscriptions and perks are available?
Two Subscription levels are currently available: Centurion or Imperator. To review the perks, see our Subscriptions page. We may also include subscribers as part of the earliest waves for PTU access. And for every 12 months of subscription time, you are eligible for a discount coupon! Check out the guide Subscriber Discount Coupons for further details.
When do I get my subscriber perks?
When you pay for a year up front, you receive some perks immediately on payment. Other perks release later. All perks and benefits of each subscriber plan are listed on our Subscriptions page on the main website.
We provide Comm-links updates on all subscriber flair. You can preview what's coming and learn more about any flair changes.
Subscription Plans and Passes
There are two ways to become a subscriber: through a Plan or through Passes.
A Plan is a recurring payment that you subscribe to through your Payment Processor. It can be a monthly-recurring payment or an annually (12 month) recurring one. Every time a payment is processed, your subscription is automatically expanded by one period (month or year, depending on the plan).
A Pass is a one-off payment that grants you Subscriber access for a limited time. They’re an excellent alternative if you can’t or don’t want to subscribe to a recurring payment plan. Passes also don’t require a Credit Card to be purchased. You can even buy them with Store Credit.
A Pass gives you exactly the same perks as a regular Plan and also contributes to your subscriber history.
How do I sign up and manage my Subscription?
Head over to the Subscriptions page of the RSI website for further information and to subscribe!
For detailed information, see Manage and Cancel Subscriptions. This includes information for upgrading, changing payment methods, and canceling your subscription.
What payment methods are supported?
You can purchase a recurring subscription plan with a payment method including Stripe, PayPal, and Amazon. Subscription passes can be purchased using store credit as well.
If you choose PayPal as a recurring payment method and wish to cancel your plan, you must cancel through PayPal before contacting us to cancel on our end.
Can I have both Passes and Plans in my account at the same time?
We don’t recommend purchasing subscription passes while you already have a recurring plan active as there is no benefit to doing so. This can also cause issues when you are trying to receive your flair items. If you want to buy a Pass, make sure to cancel any active recurring subscription you might have first.
When will I get my discount coupon?
The coupon will be awarded to anyone who has accumulated a contiguous year of Centurion or Imperator time. To learn more about acquiring and using your coupon, see Subscriber Discount Coupons.
Can I use my discount code on subscriptions?
No, discounts are for pledges made solely through the Pledge Store. Digital items through the Subscriber's Store are ineligible for this discount. You cannot use the discount coupon for your Buy Backs.
To learn more about using your coupon, see Subscriber Discount Coupons.
I subscribed with Amazon, why am I receiving emails telling me that I have authorized payments to RSI?
This is because of a system change in RSI’s payment interface, you will now receive emails from Amazon once a month, confirming your subscription payment to RSI. No new costs have been incurred, simply a notification of the upcoming transaction.
I subscribed with PayPal but I didn't receive a confirmation email. Was my subscription successful?
Yes, there is a delay in the email confirmation of the subscription. This can generally take a day or two. Please be patient and wait for validation until you make another attempt at subscribing. Otherwise it is possible that you will end up with 2 concurrent subscriptions.
