Is Grammarly Premium worth the price?

price tag

price tagMany people believe that success comes at a high price. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At Grammarly, we know that confidence and credibility are often the most accurate markers of academic, professional, and personal success stories.

One thing that contributes to a person’s confidence and credibility on a daily basis is accurate writing. Our team of language experts has spent more than five years developing the world’s best proofreading algorithm; Grammarly catches up to ten times more mistakes than the most popular spelling and grammar checkers. Context-optimized synonym suggestions will allow you to improve readability and meaning. And the plagiarism detection tool can prevent your credibility from being permanently tarnished.

That’s definitely worth the price.

Is Grammarly worth the price for students?

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 9.40.32 AMGrammarly is an automated proofreader used by students pursuing degrees at higher education institutions worldwide. These students use Grammarly to achieve academic goals and improve their writing in essays, reports, theses, dissertations, and college entrance applications. It also helps students to cite their work in APA, MLA, or Chicago style, and to avoid plagiarism.

In 2012, Grammarly conducted a student survey that demonstrated the following:

  • 70% of student respondents report that Grammarly has increased their level of confidence in their writing ability;
  • 99% of student respondents report that Grammarly has improved their writing grades; and
  • 84% of student respondents report that Grammarly has improved their grades in general.

According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees for the 2013–2014 school year was $30,094 at private colleges, while the average cost for books and supplies was $1,253.

With this in mind, is $11.66 per month really too high a price to pay for higher grades and increased confidence?

Is Grammarly worth the price for professionals or job seekers?

Screen Shot 2014-02-20 at 9.40.41 AMProfessionals use Grammarly to provide expert help and instant feedback on the accuracy, impact, and credibility of their English writing in a variety of disciplines — including legal, healthcare, academic, marketing, technical, and journalism. Especially at work, adult writers may not have time or access to professional writing assistance, and Grammarly is able to fill that gap.

Grammarly can also be an equally powerful tool for job seekers who use it to perfect cover letters and other related communication with potential employers. By now you know that any mistakes in a job application, resume, or cover letter drastically increase your chances of being passed over by potential employers. Grammarly serves as an extra pair of eyes on key correspondence and helps job seekers to feel confident that they are providing accurate and credible written material to potential employers.

In a recent study by Grammarly, we learned that professionals with fewer grammatical errors achieve higher positions and are promoted more frequently than those with more mistakes in their profiles. Writing skills indicate a person’s performance at work in the following ways:

  • People who care about their writing demonstrate credibility, professionalism, and accuracy in their work.
  • Knowing how to structure a grammatically correct sentence is a sign that you can analyze and explain complex problems.

Is Grammarly worth the price for English language learners?

Finally, Grammarly helps non-native English writers feel more confident in their writing so that they can achieve personal, academic, and professional goals. Because it is an adaptive learning tool, Grammarly is able to provide customized feedback to English language learners to help them learn about written English quickly, accurately, and consistently.


Grammarly has more than 3 million registered users, and more than one million enthusiastic and engaged fans talking about grammar on its Facebook page. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.

The fact is that most people write every day, and every day Grammarly makes a meaningful impact in users’ lives; students get better grades, professionals accelerate their carees, and language learners improve their written English. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.
