    So...this is 'free on plus' yet plus has a subscription cost. Not si goo with your math there!

      Hi A C, That's a very good point! Here's what happened... For a short time, members had an option to buy resources individually rather than purchase a full subscription. So, members could either purchase the resource or get it for 'free' as part of their subscription. We no longer offer individual resources for sale and are now updating all posts that refer to 'free on Plus' to give everyone a better understanding of how our subscriptions work. Thank you for letting us know, and please feel free to get in touch if there is ever anything we can do to help!
