SpiderOak offers a special discounted plan for qualified individuals in education, government, military, and non-profit organizations: a 25% discount off the normal price of $9 per user per month. If the email address associated with your Semaphor account ends in .edu, .gov, .mil, or .org, then this special plan will be offered as an option when you purchase or upgrade your account.
To purchase or upgrade to the special discount plan, press the Buy More Space button at the bottom of the SpiderOak application on your computer. This will securely log you in to your account on the SpiderOak website. Press the Change Plan button. Here among other plans you will be offered the special discount plan. If you don't see it immediately, you may need to toggle between viewing monthly and yearly plans.
If your account is not yet associated with an email address that ends in .edu, .gov, .mil, or .org, then first change it to one that does. In the SpiderOak application on your computer, click on Account - Email - Edit. You will be taken to a secure web page where you can update your email address. Press the Update button when done, and then proceed to purchase or upgrade to the discount plan as described above.
If you have already purchased a full-price plan, we are unable to retroactively change it, but you can change to the special discount plan at any time as described above. Pro-rating will be applied when applicable.
