The Motley Fool is once again opening up its premiere Motley Fool One service to new members on September 18, 2014. This time they are teasing a “major roll back discount” that is “never-to-be-repeated”. No details yet on how big that discount will be, but of course that will be a key piece of information. They are not teasing any new features to the Motley Fool One service like they did last time, so this discount will likely drive their marketing campaign. Perhaps the discount is a recognition that their prices are becoming somewhat prohibitive.
Like their prior roll outs, they ask you to fill out a questionnaire to gauge whether you qualify or not. And they promise to get back to you no later than September 18th. I still am not sure that anyone ever actually gets disqualified and it seems to me that at least half of the questions they ask are geared more towards understanding interest in possible future offerings rather than qualifying applicants.
And also like prior roll outs, once you complete the questionnaire you gain access to the Motley Fool One Lobby where you get access to various marketing materials and other content that gets updated throughout the enrollment period. The “Lobby” site itself looks like it got a major aesthetic upgrade, with larger and more images. The content is still roughly the same, but I like the newer modern look with improved navigation.
I will provide more updates as new information becomes available. Follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my blog to stay up to date. And feel free to ask any questions or share your own thoughts on Motley Fool One in the comments section below.
