Basic Plan: As a member of Snail Mail Friends with a Basic (free) account, you're allocated a total of 20 free postcards. This is a one-time quota specific to the Basic plan. Once you've used these 20 postcards, the quota does not renew. If you send, for example, 5 postcards while on the Basic plan, you will have 15 free postcards remaining.
Upgrading to a Paid Plan: If you upgrade to a paid plan, like our Standard or Platinum packages, you'll use the postcard quota provided by that paid plan. During this time, your Basic plan's quota of 20 free postcards remains untouched and on hold.
Reverting to Basic Plan: Should your paid plan expire and you return to the Basic plan, you will resume using the remaining free postcards from your initial quota of 20. For instance, if you had sent 5 postcards under the Basic plan before upgrading, upon returning to the Basic plan, you will have 15 free postcards left to send.
Remember, the total of 20 free postcards in the Basic plan is a one-time offer and does not renew or replenish once used up. It's separate from the postcard counts of any paid plans and is not combined with them.
