Dear National Review Reader,
Over the last year or so, as we were working toward the relaunch of the National Review website, we put a strong focus on offering a more rewarding and decidedly exclusive experience to our digital audience. The result is NRPLUS, a digital subscription, to be sure, but a whole lot more.
We think of NRPLUS as a membership, not just a subscription.
As an NRPLUS member you will have full access to the digital version of National Review magazine. That’s always a good thing. But you also will have joined an exclusive National Review community, one in which you will be asked for your opinion and where you will be heard.
As a member of the NRPLUS community, you will have access to content – in addition to the digital magazine – that is not available to non-community members. You will be invited to exclusive events that involve National Review writers and editors as well as pundits and newsmakers from across the conservative spectrum. And your voice will matter to the people who make and shape the National Review website and magazine.
It’s a community, in short, that really is a community – one in which we all come to know each other and over time help make National Review and the conservative movement stronger.
And we’re only just starting out. With your input, as an inaugural member of NRPLUS, we will be so much more in the months and years ahead.
— The NR Plus Team

All Our Content, All the Time
Those who regularly visit the National Review website and are not in the NRPLUS community will most certainly bump into something known as a “paywall.” Very simply, our paywall is a meter that allows a reader to view a set number of premium items a month, after which they will be blocked from accessing additional premium content until the following month. So, a non-NRPLUS reader might within one month be able to read one magazine article, one archived podcast, and one Cartoon of the Day slideshow before he or she is blocked (ever so nicely) from accessing more of the same content.
The NRPLUS member is never blocked from any content on the National Review website. NRPLUS members can access all magazine issues in our ten-year digital archive, including, of course, the latest issue (which arrives in digital format well before print issues make it to their subscriber destinations). Podcast archives and Cartoon of the Day slideshow archives are also fully available to NRPLUS members. Non-members may only view the latest entries in these categories.
In time, we expect to grow our exclusive-content offerings significantly, adding premium content that is available in full only to our most loyal readers.JOIN NOW
Beautiful Words with the Bare Minimum of Advertising
We’d love to offer our NRPLUS community a 100% ad-free experience, and maybe someday we will. But we’re pretty sure our promise of up to 90% fewer ads is a very welcome benefit.
And what does 90% fewer ads look like? Well, NRPLUS members might see an ad at the top of the site, or below or to the side of an article. But you will not see a pop-up, a pop-under, a pop-over, or a pop-whatever. And crucially, you will not see any ads within the articles themselves.
That’s right, NRPLUS members need not negotiate advertising between the words they came to National Review to read in the first place. A beautiful thing.
And as for the ads you do see, they help pay the bills. A 100% ad-free experience could be in the cards down the road. But we know you will like the clutter-free emphasis on the written word that an NRPLUS membership allows today.JOIN NOW
Join the Conversation – You Will Be Heard!
NRPLUS members are offered several opportunities to engage with National Review writers and editors as well as other members of the NRPLUS community.
First off, only NRPLUS members may comment on articles and blog posts. We believe this benefit elevates the commenting experience for readers and commenters alike. Over at the National Review home office, we rest easier knowing our engaged and passionate NRPLUS members are at the commenting helm.
You also will be invited to join the NRPLUS Facebook group, where you can regularly engage National Review staffers in a private, focused, informal setting. (We will send new members an invitation to join this group one to two weeks after they activate their memberships.) Have an idea for the website? Have a new angle on our commentary? This is where you get to voice your opinions to just the right folks.
Similarly, we will invite you to join regular live interviews and conversations with our writers and editors, as well as thought leaders across the country. We’ll even ask you to suggest guests and questions for these special sessions. As an NRPLUS member, your contributions are valued.JOIN NOW
VIP-Level Offers and Access
Everyone wants to be a VIP, and at NRPLUS we plan to treat you like one.
As we develop the NRPLUS program, we will in time be offering members discount pricing on National Review branded apparel and accessories, selections from our National Review Books catalog, and many more items that we are planning for a newly refurbished NR Store.
Similarly, we will offer NRPLUS members discount pricing and early-access invitations to public National Review events – speeches, ceremonies, and panel discussions held in Washington, D.C., New York City, and major cities across the country. In this way, you will be able to reserve your seats at the earliest possible date and at the best price available.JOIN NOW
A Very Special Rate for Inaugural Members
By now you should understand that NRPLUS is a whole lot more than a digital magazine subscription. It is your official entryway to the National Review online community, where writer and reader come together to move National Review and the conservative conversation forward.
And at an inaugural rate of $59 a year, we think membership is an incredible value.
That rate is both for new members and our existing digital-only subscribers who renew on the NRPLUS platform. And it is a 40 percent discount from the full NRPLUS price of $99 a year. If you love National Review, want all it has to offer online with no barriers, and want to help shape the conversation, an NRPLUS membership is perfect for you.
And inaugural members can be assured that what NRPLUS is today will be so much more in the months and years ahead. We are proud of our NRPLUS offering at the start, but we know it can and will be so much more, especially with your input.
So join the NRPLUS community today, especially while this inaugural pricing is in place. We can’t wait to welcome you aboard.JOIN NOW
