Private: Techdirt Credits

Techdirt Credits

Want to get the First Word or the Last Word on Techdirt? Every comment thread is bookended by a pair of featured spots, and by spending Techdirt Credits you can promote any comment you choose (your own or someone else’s) in one of these spots — as long as someone else hasn’t claimed it first. When you promote a comment, you can choose whether or not to display your name as the promoter or let it be anonymous, but once you’ve committed to your choice it can’t be undone, and the comment will forever have the First or Last Word on that post!

Credits purchased on this page don’t expire until you use them, and you can hold them alongside the monthly credits that come with subscription packages like The Watercooler and Behind The Curtain. You can purchase as many as you’d like and use them whenever you want.

Buy in bulk and save! The price per credit goes down with bigger purchases:

  • 1 credit: $1.00
  • 5+ credits: 80¢ each
  • 10+ credits: 70¢ each
  • 20+ credits: 60¢ each

The discounted price will be automatically applied in your cart.
