Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership – For Free

Just found out that the Wealthy Affiliate changed the rules because they want to keep the quality comments rolling on the comments platform. You still can earn and have the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership for free, but please read through as some GREAT changes happened. 

So if you want to become a CERTIFIED COMMENTER and MAKE MONEY giving comments you have to be a premium or premium plus member for at least 3 months. 

However, the payment system still works, you just need to go through the trust process, which honestly I LOVE because it blocks many spammers wanting to trick the system by leaving trashy comments and wasting people’s money there. I actually reported some of them, basically, they were the reason why I quit comments for a while, came back now, and saw a huge change. 

With that being said, go ahead read the article and find out how you can cover your premium membership by making money at the Wealthy Affiliate, but remember, the NEW RULE IS TO BE A PREMIUM / PREMIUM PLUS MEMBER FOR AT LEAST 3 MONTHS now. 


Wealthy Affiliate Premium Membership FOR FREE 

“I want to extend my Wealthy Affiliate premium membership after the trial but I have zero bucks in my pocket. Can I be successful as a free member of the WA?”

This is a question I get all the time. And let me clarify this for you as simple as this. YES, YOU CAN! But it depends on you and only on you! 

So let’s see what happens when you take my advice, sign up for the Free Starter Membership at  Wealthy Affiliate, and after you got hooked up with the program during the 7 days full premium trial. Supposedly you have done your research and read several Wealthy Affiliate program reviews you found on Google, including mine. Now what?

Let’s start from the beginning

During the free 7 days trial when you have full access to all the premium features, you went through the first module of the Wealthy Affiliate Bootcamp training or/and Online Entrepreneur Certification training.

You explored the classes and found so many free webinars, met the owners, and direct messaged them for all the questions you had during these first seven days.

You also enjoyed communication with other Wealthy Affiliate members in a live chat and you were assisted within minutes (sometimes seconds) every time you asked for assistance.

Following the training, you also built your free WordPress website, enjoyed the support of the technical team.

You started your blog at the Wealthy Affiliate and you loved the response you got! 

The trial is slowly ending and YOU WOULD LOVE to continue but you have zero bucks in your pocket. What now? You are thinking, where in the world I can find $49 dollars a month to pay for the premium membership? $495 for the entire year if I go annual? Ha! There is no way!



Investment is the first step towards success

When starting any business, you have to have some investments and kinds of detachment from other things so you can start your desired business successfully. Right? That can be changing your daily habits, mindset, and other things that don’t serve you. And yes you node your head now. You agree that this can be true. But what this has to do with your empty pocket you think?

So here we go! The Wealthy Affiliate premium membership costs $49. BUT! You will love this. The first month is promotional when you sign up within the first 7 days (during your trial). And it costs ONLY $19. For the first month! After that is $49.

Now you ask me again: “Sunny, I think I already told you I have ZERO BUCKS in my pocket!”

And I say, yes you told me twice or three times already BUT I HAVE A SOLUTION FOR YOU! You don’t have to pay any dollar from your pocket (and ok I understand you don’t see the ways to decrease your paid habits – which I would certainly do if I wanted to pay something else I find valuable).


“So what is that she is talking about?”, you think. “She just said it’s $19 instead of $49. And I told her I don’t have even $19. And then she said I don’t have to pay $19 but it will cost me $19. I am confused. This girl must be preparing some good news for me.”


Say what? 

Yes, you heard me right! You can make $$$$$ within the first seven days of the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership and use that money to pay for your membership.

How to make money with Wealthy Affiliate? 

There are several ways to make money with Wealthy Affiliate and in this article, we will talk about one way. The one YOU NEED NOW! Don’t worry I will make this very short, sweet, and clear. 

It’s the Wealthy Affiliate comments platform. Wealthy Affiliate members post their website’s links and request comments. Your job is to read thoroughly their articles, understand the topic and give your kind and honest comment. The more care you give to this action, the better pay you will get from the Universe (and the Wealthy Affiliate system). Make sure that you are fair! You pay it forward! 


How much I get paid by the Wealthy Affiliate?

The system will pay you $0.50 for every second comment you give (and get approved for by the article’s owner). That’s why you have to follow the rules: read, understand, and write your comment. I will help you set up your settings so that the system pulls out articles and topics of your interest. 

Now let’s make a calculation: 

2 comments = 0.50$
4 comments = $1.00

So every 4 comments you leave you will earn ONE DOLLAR. 

You need $19. Let’s calculate further. 

$19 x 4 = 76
So in order to make $19 you have to leave 76 comments. 

That sounds fantastic, right? 

It sounds too good to be true. Well, there is something you have to do to earn the status of the qualified paid commenter. Remember, there are thousands of active members at the Wealthy Affiliate. Hundreds of them are using the platform. Not everyone can be paid just like that. You have to earn that status. 

But don’t worry, that’s a pretty straightforward and easy process. 


How to earn the qualified paid commenter status at Wealthy Affiliate? 

In order to become one, you have to give 50 comments within a month (in your case within the first week) with no less than 80% approvals and (my advice is not to skip any article that the system gives you – you might struggle with some as not everyone is born to write clear articles, but you do your best to understand what the writer wanted to say). Once you accomplish this you will see dollars piling up. 

Let’s calculate now. 

So we said every second comment earns you $0.50, which means that you make $1.00 every time you give 4 comments. You need 76 comments for $19.00

And you need 50 comments to get approved. I would increase this number (just to be on the safe side to 70)

That’s 76 + 70 = 146

Now… It takes me ONE HOUR for 10 comments. That’s circa 15 hours for 146 comments. 

I am sure you can find time to invest in this! Do it while watching your favorite TV show or what I would do if I cared – sacrifice the TV show 🙂 


Ok. Now we know that you can make money and use that income to pay your first month of the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership. We also know that you need approved 146 +/- comments on 146+/-articles to accomplish this. And we know that you want this so much so that you are ready to sacrifice your TV, drinks time, and hangouts for a couple of days. Let’s get into a business! 


How to join the Wealthy affiliate comments platform?

  1. Literally, just the site I was looking for! As someone who is trying to make it as an affiliate marketer, I am trying to fund my Wealthy Affiliate account. In order to do this quickly the website’s user-friendly, hand-holding system to earn money is nothing short of magical. And truly everyone can do this- just give it your time, energy, and dedication and you are sure to see results! 

  2. Such a very interesting post.

    I would never have thought of this as a way to pay the Wealthy Affiliate membership.  It is also important to remember that the second month will cost $49.  However, as far as I know you don’t have to give anymore free reviews, you just have to keep the consistency up, but I could be wrong on that one.

    If this is the case then you will only need to do 100 reviews in subsequent months to cover your membership.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am part of Wealthy Affiliate (outstanding platform) and I do a lot of comments in the system, I was not aware it was actually worth cash that I could use to pay the monthly bill. I will have to look into this further. I thought it was just a give 2 comments and you can get one back. Thanks for the information.

  4. The comment section is a powerful section that assisted me to pay my bills when I first joined Wealthy Affiliate. Unlike other platforms that have no provision to assist you to get started, the Wealthy Affiliate program has been made so that you can earn and pay your bills when you learn. But one thing I must emphasize, Wealthy Affiliate is not a quick rich scheme so you must be ready to do the hard work. You must be diligent and work hard to get results 

    • Yes, Parameter! That’s true! It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. And that’s why has been valued online for such a long time. 

  5. Wealthy Affiliate seems like a good place to learn affiliate marketing. But since we’re all running on a budget, I initially thought I could not afford it. However, with this solution you’re giving me of giving comments, it may turn out that I can afford it after all. Thank you very much for guiding me about this!

  6. This is the most thought out and thorough program I have ever come across. The fact that Kyle and Carson even provided a method by which newbies could earn enough to pay for their membership fees to upgrade to premium is fantastic. I have never heard of a company doing this before. Most companies are all about the endless upsells. This program is not difficult but it does take effort. Why wouldn’t someone put in the effort, after all, it is for your benefit that you invest in yourself. I love reading your articles and feeling your excitement, if I wasn’t already a member I would sign up today.

    • Thank you so much Deborah! This feedback you gave means the world to me. Thank you a lot for your honesty and a testimonial as well. This company is great and one just needs to get on board and follow the instructions. That’s all. Everything is already provided even the cash bank to take money from and use for the membership payment 🙂 

  7. This is a great recommendation to use the comment function on the Wealthy Affiliate platform, to earn credits that you can then use to pay for your membership. I wish I had know this when I first joined Wealthy Affiliate, as it took me more than a year to learn that I can earn credits if I am a qualified commenter. I recently used my credits to pay for my domain renewal and it was a great feeling that I had earned the credits for it. 

    I recently lost my status when I went on holiday, and then had to earn it back again. Do you have any recommendations if you know that you will not have access to the internet to maintain your commenter status?

    • I always knew about this option and used it for a domain purchase as well the last time I gained it. I am working for it again 🙂 

      Well, next time I know I am not going to be able to use it, I will ask my nephew to login every day and leave comments 😀 

  8. I am a person who has a lot of questions before I invest any time or money into a financial endeavor. I am overwhelmed by the simplicity of the explanations about the free trial in the Wealthy Affiliate Program.

    My first reaction was…WOW…I typically am immediately deterred by any offers that are free, however in this case I was immediately sold on the idea, and felt led to take immediate action. I really felt as if I was provided with accurate and important information that was going to provide an awesome future for me.

    I was looking for a simple and easy program to understand that had very little financial risk in the beginning stages. I would have never guessed that the program had so much to offer without me ever paying a dime or even submitting credit card information. That was the critical and key point to making my decision.

    The moment I discovered I did not have to submit any credit card information, I was immediately, “all in”. WOW what an incredible deal for me. Thank you !!

    • Absolutely! No credit card is required to sign up. The first month is greatly discounted and you can pay it forward using the comments section platform. What an incredible offer! 

  9. Wealthy Affiliate sounds like a great program. Not many places offer the intense training as they do here. I have tried many programs, but upsells were too many. Are there any upsells with Wealthy Affiliate? The reason I ask is that I want to try it, but don’t want to pay more than what is shown. 

    • There is a free starter membership with the first 7 days of the trial which means full access to the premium membership, then there is a premium membership for $19 for the first month after that is $49 and you also have  the premium plus $89.92/mo

      There are no upsells here, it is the way is said

  10. This is terrific encouragement for new people wanting to get started on building their own business. It can be scary if you don’t have a lot of money and really want to learn. How terrific that you can earn money at Wealthy Affiliate to pay for Wealthy Affiliate. They really know how to support people with their business platform.

    We are blessed.

  11. It is great that Wealthy affiliate provides a free 7-day trial in which you can delve into the platform and really get to see what they are all about and what’s involved – anytime that wants to work from home then this is a great place to start, you are not losing out on anything and learn many digital skills – great info here

  12. What? You earn money for every two comments you leave? How come my total earnings say $0.00? Is there a way that I can start earning money this way? Could you enlighten me further?

    I am ready to earn money as a result of the investments I am going to continue to make.

    There have been a few occasions in which I have had 50/50 comments. So, you are saying that I need at least 50 of these approved comments in a month?

    Thank you for this article! You opened my mind up to something I wasn’t previously aware of. I am going to set aside quality time to comment all the time now. Awesome

  13. Honestly I have been using WA for a few years now off and on. And if I had know about this way of making money right inside the platform back when I stopped the first time I would have likely kept on top of my membership fees! 

    And I actually only recently found out about this powerful function with in the comments section! I think it is sooo incredible for cross-promotional purposes and now for these purposes! That would have never even occurred to me! Thanks Sunny! I wish you all the luck!

  14. That sounds great! So, to get 50 comments to get approved, how long would that normally take? A few days? Are there any rules regarding length and quality of website comments to prevent people from leaving comments just to earn the 50 cents? I think that as long as people leave quality comments, that this is great way to earn extra cash and pay your monthly membership.

    • The rules are explained within the comment section.And it takes me about 1 hour for 10 quality readings and commenting after that

  15. Thank you so much,Sunny, for this excellent article. Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent platform for making money online. The step-by-step videos are easy to do, and when you ever have some question, you can count on professional help in seconds 24/7. 
    I love Wealthy Affiliate, living in a tiny village making money online. I can travel, making money online, can take a vacation, making money online. Wealthy Affiliate is freedom. 


  16. I was looking for a simple and easy program to understand that had very little financial risk in the beginning stages. I would have never guessed that the program had so much to offer without me ever paying a dime or even submitting credit card information. That was the critical and key point to making my decision.

  17. HI SUNNY,thank you for sharing this super article. To be honest I am not a fun of writing reviews but, maybe bcs is morning where I’m from and I saw ur picture.  I’ve remembered that in the past I’ve commented to one of your article and I just love the natural style you are writing ✍. 

    I do try to write as you and I wish to be like you. I m doing my best. 

    I do love 💘  when you are writing as you are taking with your friend.

    As you said the most important thing is Yes to be honest.  also i didn’t know ab how you can get paid for your comment. I have no idea even though I have 3 months in here. I just like to give my honest opinion to the people for their posts.

    thank you and well done.

  18. Hi Sunny, 

    You have just provided an article to solve the problems of those who do have the cash needed to join as a premium member here at Wealthy Affiliate.

    I have encountered the same problem 8 months ago. I did not have a credit card at the time and my visa bank account is rejecting transactions abroad except for bank transfer which is not possible because Kyle will not really give his bank account info for security reason. I had to ride on with a friends credit card just to pay my membership.

    I just wish I have seen your article 8 months ago. I  only started to know about this 3 days ago, after I have been a certified as a  commenter. I used to give comments only once i a while. This will surely help a lot of people interested to join WA. In fact I want to share it to my friend who wants to join. Thanks for this very helpful post.

  19. WA is truly amazing and has changed my way of thinking in so many ways. I am already a premium member and enjoy all the pieces of training that are provided to give you a foothold on the path to success. The pay-it-forward community is amazing and provides only the best answers to any questions one might have. Go WA!

  20. Hi, thanks for this great strategy on how to fund your wealthy affiliate account when low on cash. I think the site comment earning opportunity is a great deal also qualify for it is not hard. You can easily qualify in 7days if you discipline yourself to leave 7 site comment everyday. The good thing is you will not have to do this for ever, once you start earning online with your site, you can now use your payments to pay for you membership with wealthy affiliate.   

  21. Hi Sunny, awesome post on how you can pay for the Wealthy Affiliate membership within the Wealthy Affiliate system. While I do understand that there are people living in certain countries where $19/$49 USD is a lot of money, it really doesn’t take much to get there. As you said, the Site Comments platform is a perfect way to make the money needed to cover a Wealthy Affiliate subscription. People can also take surveys and do other micro-jobs to pay for the subscription. Great article!

  22. The comment section is my favorite.
    When I started with WA I didn’t believe they were earning me just commenting.
    It’s not easy and you can’t get rich overnight but it can help you earn at least a premium membership. It’s better that way than taking it out of your pocket every month.

  23. Hi Sunny. Very interesting article. I’m a wealthy affiliate member for a while but I didn’t know that there is the possibility to earn real money on comments. Taking under consideration that you earn  $2.5 for every 10 comments it’s really easy to earn enough to cover premium membership. And wealthy affiliate platform can really boost every online business, with clear and transparent training which shows how to start earning real money online.

  24. Thanks to you I started using wealthy affiliate and it’s the best thing that I’ve done. This platform has taught me so much that I did not know that I didn’t even know ha ha. I hope that made sense. Anyway, this platform has really been useful to me and it has given me a lot more knowledge than I thought was available on affiliate marketing

  25. Thank you so much for the informative article on wealth affiliate!  I love that you are talking about this awesome site because they offer so much in way of helping others reach their business goals online!  A seven day free trial is actually a great way to start, and I believe if people sign up then, then they will continue to use the services.

  26. This is such a fantastic article Sunny. I’m so glad you mentioned the Site Comments feature of WA. It’s honestly a great way to fund your membership, as long as you are diligent and use the system a little bit each day. It takes a bit to get up to the first 50 to become certified, but it’s easy to keep that status if you just do the 10 comments a day to keep yourself boosted. Really awesome system that I am guilty of not using to it’s fullest potential.

  27. Good day, I’m pleased to meet you. Well, I must say this information is so fruitful and motivating. I had never thought if I had joined wealthy affiliate on free membership I would somehow be in a position to earn the $0.5 for every two site comments. In fact, little did I know that I can be a certified commenter without having to upgrade. This is a very helpful information, thanks for sharing.

  28. The comments section on the Wealthy Affiliate platform is great. While you learn how to become successful in writing blogs and creating a website, you can also make money. Really great thing, as extra work and very little time is required to write comments. It is very exciting to discover all the benefits the platform offers.

  29. Hi Sunny. I first joined Wealthy Affiliates back in 2014, when personal circumstances led to me leaving after one month. I don’t know if being paid for commenting was an option back then. Certainly, nobody told me about it. So I am very pleased to see you highlighting this method now. Perhaps other members are highlighting this too… if they are I haven’t seen them yet. People who might want to become members would be very lucky to find you!  🙂  Richard

  30. One of the foundation blocks of the Wealthy Affiliate platform is they wholeheartedly endorse the ‘Pay Forward’ or ‘Giving Back’ concepts. The Site Comments section is one of those areas that epitomizes this very key and laudable feature. Not only do members benefit from the comments that others give but it also adds to your site receiving attention by Google and it ranking more highly. So when you add the ability to earn money on top of it at a rate that is completely up to you without an upper limit then this indeed does provide a quick way to earn some cash. I am uncertain as to whether the rules changed slightly on how long you have to be a member but that is to be checked out. Good attempt to provide a solution to a problem faced by many, particularly during these global pandemic times. 

  31. Wait, this is very good news for me. Thank you so much for giving this useful tip! I didn’t know that the comment platform can give you real money. So, it’s really can be used to pay my membership here? But, how many sites will be available? I’m afraid there is too much competition for the comment platform.

    • Well I wouldn’t say so as it is still working. There are many Wealthy Affiliate members requesting comments so the option is always available for everyone. You might want to change your settings and open up for variety of topics if you come to the point there are no articles for reviewing. 

  32. Hi Sunny! This is brilliant, how you have done this. I’m part of WA and I knew that they had that option to make money on comments, but I didn’t put two and two together! And I didn’t fully understand the process of it- so thanks for this article!

    If you want to become a certified Commenter, do your comments need to be stepped up a notch? Longer, or better somehow? Is it difficult to have 80% of them approved?

  33. I didn’t know you could earn money just by writing comments! That’s a good idea; I think I’ll take a look at Wealthy Affiliate.

    What if I can’t write the full 146 comments? Will I get a discount on the monthly rate depending on how many comments I did actually write? I think I would be able to cut down on a daily coffee or weekly takeout to save some money towards paying for membership as well. I think for me, a combination of the two would be easier.

    I’m happy to give it a try if it’s free and I don’t need a credit card.


  34. Hi Sunny. Nice article. I am soo happy I came across your article. I have been a member if Weathly affiliate for a while now, and never knew about this.

    I guess this is article is not only for new members, but for anyone really. Making money through blogging does work, but it takes time like any business.

    So, earning money though giving comments will most likely encourage people to continue. I was wondering how do you know if your comments has been approved?

    Do you get a notice? How long should the comments be? I would love to, and maybe try the challenges myself, Thanks.

  35. Hello there, Sunny! This is a great review of wealthy affiliate! Had I not already signed up for it prior to reading your article, I definitely would have signed up afterwards! I remember when I started off with the free account, but the training was really detailed and simple that I just had to become premium member to get the full training. Never would I have thought I would learn so much. I’ve only been with WA for about 6 months, and still haven’t received an income yet. How long did it take you before you received income through your websites?

  36. Hello, Sunny, I agree with you about Wealthy Affiliate opportunities to make money, especially the WA comment platform. I’m using this platform daily to leave and gets comments for my articles, too. I want to encourage every reader on your site to try it and gets the fruit of their work on this platform. 

    Thank you for sharing it.


  37. Hello Sunny,
    I love your personality in this blog article, you have lots of potential here and you move your reader on very well to the end to buy the product. However, you do need someone to review your article for grammar and you have some spelling errors. I use Word for that and the audio “read aloud” speech option. This is just a suggestion.
    I am sure you are getting lots of website hits as your pictures and artwork here are very good. The girl on the computer reminds me of Tinker bell.
    Good Luck, Lily

  38. Hi Sunny
    Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the Wealthy Affiliate premium membership for free. Your explanation to earn the first 19 dollars is awesome .One can certainly do it with a focus to make at least 146 comments in the first seven days. Two to three hours of work per day is not that difficult. As you said there’s a change in the rules that one can become certified commenter only after 3 months as a premium for premium plus member, so I think it is still a challenge to earn first month fee with the help of comment portal. Please suggest how to overcome this challenge.
    Warm Regards,
    Gaurav Gaur

    • Hello Gaurav, yes, there is an update. This option is now available only for the premium members after 3 months upon they upgrade. Because of the spammers, the option for the free starter members is canceled. 

  39. Hey,

    I’m part of wealthy affiliate, and I’m a newbie also I had the confusion about the comment section but you have solved my confusion about the comment section. Thank you so much for providing such valuable information.

  40. Thanks for a comprehensive review of Wealthy Affiliate Premium! Honestly, I appreciate this review because it spoke about WA SiteComment. This particular platform had been a problematic one since October 2018 that Carson first launched it, and many good members stopped commenting or requesting comments to their sites due to spam comments flooding the platform.  

    But with the new change that has occurred now, I’m pleased to return and start using SiteComment again. Yeah, premium members can now pay monthly subscriptions from the revenue they earn from commenting.

    • Hi Joyce, yes that’s true. Only the Site Comment platform existed even before 2018. I used to use it upon I joined in 2015. Carson probably made a new one in 2018? 
      You are so right about the spam comments. They were happening a lot back in the Summer. And it was so annoying catching all the spammers. I am glad it’s solved now.
