Roberto Amorim Is this one-time-payment license for the Premium version?

rob voe What is a "One-time purchase" - Is this a lifetime license?

Jerry User Yes. What IS the "one-time purchase license"?

jgt1942 Regarding the one-time purchase, would I receive lifetime updates? Also, can I use it on multiple devices (I have five PCs that I use)?

Lazar Voin Watch out as these days "Lifetime!" means 3-5 years. the same offer was $19 a couple of weeks back, so it may come back again as it is OVERPRICED!

jgt1942 Thanks Lazar!!! I'm on the fence about the purchase, I've been using the free version of Grammarly and really like the function, for now, I'm leaning to just staying with the free version. I'm retired and really don't have a pressing need at this time.

Gary Smith I urge everyone to read ALL of the Older Comments. Whitesmoke uses common terms differently from what is expected.

The last time this was offered on BdJ, they actually used the term Lifetime but it meant only 3 years to them. They have changed to use the term One-time purchase, which means you can keep the version you purchased without having to pay anymore (essentially no subscription to continue using), ... but no upgrades. It is just another way of trying to force users into purchasing without knowing the full ramifications. They do not do business like other companies do. Lifetime or One-time purchase would mean free updates and upgrades to later versions to most anyone, but not this company.

In response to customer's asking why they used the Lifetime term when it was not a Lifetime of updates AND upgrades, they responded that it would be lifetime for that BdJ offer only (but not in the future). In the end, even that lifetime turned out to be that you could use the program for a lifetime but you did not get any upgrades, so as soon as a new major version number comes out, users are out of luck. They compared it to MS Office in that when a new version of MS Office comes out, you have to pay again. The flaw here is that the previous MS Office was not offered as a Lifetime license, so of course you have to pay.

As far as how well the program performs, it had a lot of false positives on things that it suggested the user change. It also copies everything you check to the cloud, which is a major concern for a lot of people (you always need a connection to use the software; it is not standalone). In the end, it simply wasn't worth it.

In the older comments is at least one reference to a review. This is the same version offered last time so It is not likely to work any better, but regardless of how great it could be, the licensing does it in.

The above sounds like a bad translation from a foreign language, to me. Someone cannot even get the description sounding like proper English: So I think, perhaps, I will rely on my own - very average - knowledge of written and spoken English.
Thanks but no thanks.

Gary Smith The link that Lazar Voin provided is to a subdomain of The subdomain allows other companies to sell Stacksocial products in order to get a commission on the sale. There are several websites that have the same content. The same link for BitsDuJour is

I always recommend to support BItsDuJour. Occasionally the entire Bitsdujour page will be these types of offers.

It is interesting that the ad for Whitesmoke uses the term Lifetime in that offer, but notice the purchaser gets free updates, but no mention of free upgrades. So basically the user is stuck with the same major version number forever. Anyone purchasing the same program later (after a major version number change) will have a later version of the program than what you would get if you purchase using this Lifetime updates. When a new major number version change occurs, there will no more "updates" for the license you purchased under this deal.

jgt1942 Gary, much thanks for the clarification. I've decided to stay with the free version of Grammarly. It is super annoying when a company redefines common terms to mean something totally different.

Gary User "It turn your English flawless and enjoyable to read. " That doesn't give me a lot of confidence in the product. Someone also doesn't know about the Oxford comma rule.

You can get this offer only on BitDuJour. Great deal, isn't it?

Chris I purchased a while back and got a new computer as my old one died. I used the link in my email to download the installer again but even with my UAC turned off it stops it from running. Upon checking the certificate, it has been revoked, so it seems like I need a way around this or need a refund.

Lazar Voin I wonder WHY such a program needs Upgrades over the years. Is the English Language and Grammar changing so fast or is a perpetual way to make money for greedy programmers!?
Jan 22 2019 at 2:03pm Copy Link
Jonathan User Hi Lazar,

The reason there are upgrades as with almost all softwares is because there are new versions of operating systems and version of office outlook etc and this requires updates to the software to work with those applications.

i hope this answers your questions and you can email me directly at for a full list of changes with all our versions.

kind regards,

Jonathan User Hi Chris,

please email me your activation code and I will take a look straight away into fixing the license.

Constantin Florea @shoreleave, I am sorry about the issue with the comment, we didn't delete your comment. There is actually a known issue in our system in which some comments become hidden when there is a recently ending EveryDay deal for the product. I see the EveryDay deal ended on 21st of January 2019 (3 days ago).

Please feel free to add your comment again.

HKP On March 11th 2018, White Smoke made a special offer for BitsDuJour users only. The vendor provided a lifetime license which should be valid for an unlimited number of years. This has been pretty unusual because the service is known to require payment repeatedly all three years. Obviously, many other visitors doubted the promise. If you go back to this date in the discussion thread, you will find several inquiries from different users. They were all answered with the explicit assurance of license-validity without a limit of time by the White Smoke representative. I then took the offer and can tell now, if the vendor kept his promise.

However, exactly after the usual three years, the service refused to work for me. Neither the online version nor the desktop version connected to the server. I was treated like a customer without a valid license. This time I still received help from the WhiteSmoke Support Department. They gave me new credentials, so I could use the service furthermore. Until here the reader might think I now got the promised license without a limit of time, though the service for me has been interrupted again. This time the service ended already after only one year. However, I tried in vain to get support from White Smoke again. I could see my request on Kayako and got a ticket number #TET-971-94266 by email. Nevertheless, all what followed were silence. I reminded the open case and received another automated email. All my requests are displayed on Kayako. However, WhiteSmoke remains silent.

This means: Beware of the WhiteSmoke assurances!

Can Constantin Florea intervene in this case and make the vendor answer?

Constantin Florea @HKP, I've just sent them an email regarding your comment.

We've contacted WhiteSmoke from time to time in the past period since the 2019 promotion but they haven't replied to our emails either.

John User I have to admit that I've previously struggled with translation.

It could be especially crucial to be precise while utilizing idioms in some circumstances. I've already heard good things about russian video translation from a trustworthy buddy.
I've used them quite a bit since then because of their speedy response times, friendly customer service, and capacity to translate media content.
