What is Reddit Premium?
Reddit Premium is our subscription membership program, and it directly supports Reddit and the communities that it hosts. It offers an entirely ads-free Reddit experience, monthly Coins, access to the exclusive r/lounge community, a special shield on your profile, and other benefits.
The Premium membership gives me Coins, what are those for?
Reddit Coins are a virtual good, and you can use them to give exceptional posts or comments an Award. This is a way to show appreciation for an exceptional contribution to Reddit, and can also grant the recipient special bonus benefits. You can award someone by clicking on “Give Award” below a post or comment.
Do I have to subscribe to Reddit Premium to get Coins?
No you don’t. You can buy packages of Coins directly here. Additionally, you will receive Coins if you are given a Gold or Platinum Award.
Why change the name to Premium? What happened to calling it Gold?
To make things easier to understand, we’ve renamed the membership to Reddit Premium, while the virtual good is called Coins.
