Premium bundle details http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/
$8.25 per month, billed yearly
Note that each upgrade bundle applies to a single blog only and is for a single year only when it is due to be renewed.
We all pay in full for every upgrade at the time of purchase. Make sure you read the comparison very closely do you know exactly what the restrictions and limitations on WordPress.COM blogging are: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

There are no premium themes included in the premium upgrade bundle. http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/ And every premium theme is individually priced.

If my only option is to upgrade, I want to annul the contract… how do i get out. I have not had this ‘problem’ with other hosting companies–only Dotster. Should I be talking to them or to WordPress.
In order to remove the .wordpress.com URL and replace that with a domain URL you have to purchase either a Premium upgrade http://store.wordpress.com/plans/premium/ or a Business upgrade http://store.wordpress.com/plans/business/. Both upgrades are renewable annually and you are billed annually for them.
thankyou timethief, you are not a wasteoftime
I will use this–
“In order to remove the .wordpress.com URL and replace that with a domain URL you have to purchase either a Premium upgrade or a Business upgrade.”
The topic is resolved…. the issue, however, is not.
timethief, i was wondering about the refund policy you mentioned above.
is the 30day refund period for people who purchase the premium bundle applicable if you have been renewing for a few years? i may need to cancel but i wont know for about 1 week after renewal. can i cancel then if it is within 30 days of the renewal? and not a new upgrade / purchase?
thanks so much!
@instadesigner – Cancellations for renewals need to be handled by Staff. I’ve tagged this for their attention, but please confirm what is the site in question?
can i cancel then if it is within 30 days of the renewal?
Yes, that is correct.
