Of course, existing users benefit from a Setapp gift card the same way as new users do; no worries! However, you might want to know how your current subscription plan will intersect with the gift card value. In this article, we'll try to cover all existing scenarios, but you're always welcome to contact our support team to get more information.
You use Setapp on trial
Usually, the trial period lasts 7 days. If you got a Setapp gift card during the trial period, you don't have to wait until the free days expire. You can activate the card right now, and we'll add the days left from your trial to the gifted period. In other words, all your free days stay with you.
You use a specific subscription plan
Setapp recalculates the gift card value to fit your current plan. We do it to ensure you have access to all features and devices you love in Setapp.
$9.99 or $27.97 value
If you got a $9.99 or $27.97 gift card, then recalculation applies per month cost.
Consider the following example: you have a "Mac + iOS" subscription for $12.49 per month. Your friend sends you a $27.97 gift card. To recalculate the subscription duration, let's find out the cost of your subscription for 3 months: $12.49 * 3 = $37.43. In this case, Setapp will apply the gift card for 2 months and 12 days of your "Mac + iOS" subscription plan.
If you got a year gift card, recalculation applies for a year cost regardless of your actual subscription period and subscription plan.
Consider the following example: you have a "Power Plan" subscription for $14.99 per month. Your friend sends a 107.99 Setapp gift card for your Birthday. To recalculate the subscription duration, let's find out the yearly cost of your subscription: $14.99 * 12 = $179.88 per year. In this case, we remain a monthly "Power Plan" as your subscription plan, but Setapp will apply the gift card for 7 months and 6 days.
