Reddit Premium is a subscription that auto-renews each month. Reddit Premium members use Reddit ad-free, get 700 Reddit Coins a month (plus 1,000 Reddit Coins just for signing up), and have access to the members-only r/lounge.
- Why change the name to Reddit Premium? What happened to calling it Gold?
People were confusing a Reddit Gold Membership with Reddit Coins or a Gold Award. To clear things up, we named the subscription Reddit Premium.
- What happens if I was subscribed to the old Gold Membership program?
You become a Reddit Premium member and get all the same benefits as your Gold Membership program, plus an extra 700 Reddit Coins a month.
- What are Reddit Coins for?
Reddit Coins allow you to buy Reddit Awards for other redditors. If someone makes an exceptional post or comment, you can use Reddit Coins to give them awards like Silver, Gold, or Platinum. It’s a way to show your appreciation. And people who receive Reddit Awards may also get fun extras such as Reddit Coins of their own.
- Do I have to subscribe to Reddit Premium to get Reddit Coins?
No! Anyone can buy Reddit Coins.
