Choose your status
OPM Wire operates a highly stratified status-based membership scheme. These are the status levels that are publicly disclosed.
- Open to anyone, including total squares
- You will get email updates on a delayed basis
- Access to most posts
- Everyone will laugh at you
- $10 PER MONTH
- Full access to all private posts
- Excel jockeys tolerated, but no total squares
- Yes, "barefoot pilgrim" is pejorative
- Get email updates earlier
- $1,000 PER YEAR
- Emails sent by premium service (not low-status Mailchimp)
- Cannot be held concurrently with a CFA Charter
- Can use CFBF instead (Chartered Financial Bullcrap Fighter)
- Other undisclosed benefits
How this works
- Most of the main content on OPM Wire is free. Paid memberships are mostly a way of expressing where you belong on the social dominance hierarchy.
- If you sign up for free (or have already done so), then your status is Blind Squirrel.
- Super Premium Wheeler-Dealer memberships are subject to approval and can be revoked at any time, at OPM's sole discretion.
- Newsletters you get from OPM Wire will identify your chosen status. If you choose to forward such emails to others, you could be exposed to status-based discrimination, ridicule or envy, as the case may be. Sad!
- Your payment info is stored and processed securely by Stripe and never touches our servers.
- Stripe was recently valued at $95 Billion - more than Blackstone, KKR and The Carlyle Group COMBINED. We trust that is suitably high-status for you.
- Plans renew automatically, but you can cancel at any time before a payment is due.
- Prices are subject to change, including for existing subscribers.
- No discounts will ever be offered, as discounts are low-status.
- For the same reason, no refunds will be given, except where required by law.
