PA has some really good sales fairly often and they give out coupons occasionally. I just checked my account. I've bought 35 plugins from them over the years and have never paid anywhere close to full price.

Just to give an idea of what's possible, these are some purchases I made:

elysia museq ($149), SPL De-Verb ($49), SPL Attacker ($49), SPL Mo-Verb ($49), and Millenia NSEQ-2 ($249) bought for $70.25

brainworx bx-stereomaker ($99) bought for $9

elysia nvelope ($199) bought for $29

elysia karacter ($149) bought for $9

bx-XL v2 ($299), bx_refinement ($199), bx_saturator v2 ($199), bx_bluechorus2 ($49), bx_greenscreamer ($49) all bought for $107

The subscription may be a good idea for someone new to this game because for a relatively low fee you can get your hands on some really excellent plugins and it gives those folks a chance to play with some things and get a sense of what they like and don't like. But in the long run, I'm not a fan of subscription services. I don't like that work I've done will be lost should I decide to end the subscription.

Buying from PA is much like buying UAD stuff: if you're smart and patient, you don't have to fork over pounds of flesh. So for a beginner I'd say get the subscription and figure out what you really like, then work the sales so you can dump the subscription at some point.
