If you have young kids and buy diapers and formula and PCO snacks etc, then yes for sure. You can earn the subscription price back in less than 3 trips to the store for diapers, formula etc. Do the math tho
Aren’t diapers cheaper at Walmart though?

It comes with a $99 voucher on PC Travel. So if you're going to book travels for that site, it's definitely worth it.
I guess I posted this in the other duplicate thread. I'll post it here as well:

You can use ebates with expedia, hotels.com and travelocity (which will go up to 9% sometimes). I find that the $99 kind of nullifies itself in the end.

That's if PC travel is a decent travel company.... I signed up with Insider last year and booked my trip with it, never again! I wasn't able to check in online due to they fail to connect all of my tickets, and on top of that they changed my flight 3 times!
Itinerary changes, especially multiple, aren't that uncommon, especially when you book a flight months in advance. I booked direct with Delta for my last US trip and got 7 flight changes emailed to me.

PCTravel site sucks. Most flights dont show the little PcInsider $99 credit popup so you have to phone in and it takes about 20 minutes a booking.

They dont even advertise on their site how the credit applies so probably lots of confused people out there never getting a popup will not use their credit.

I thought pc travel is like an Expedia or something. Was it the carrier that changed the flight? Or was it pc travel specifically? Don’t you still check in with the flight carrier ?

I was thinking about using them. What was your itinerary like?
It was quite hard to navigate and price compare. I ended up using google travel and expedia to see what flight I want and then search it up on PC travel.

My experience was I booked through PC travel for some ANA flights, so that takes me from Calgary to Vancouver to Tokyo to Taiwan,. On my way to and back from Taiwan, they weren't allowing me to checking in online and have to report to the counter. This results in unable to choose seats in advance and they informed me that all of my tickets were not linked together. Unlinked tickets will results in I have to take out my checked baggage and then recheck them in each legs of transfer. The people at those desk were nice enough to link them for me at the airport, but I really don't appreciate the hassle to go through these ordeal just to save $100....

I don't fly that often so thank you for letting me know! However, the method of PC travel informing me about the flight time change and their knowledge in airport was unfriendly at the best. They even provided wrong info at the time informing about the change. For example, I have told them one of the time change they were telling me about only leaves me less than 1 hr to go from domestic flight terminal to international flight terminal. Now, these two terminals are more than 20 min walking speed apart. When I told them about this, they just told me no, that's not true. Then they told me they are like at the same terminal and I don't have to walk such great distance. When it's time to flight, long and behold that my wife and I have to almost run to the international terminal and barely made it... I would never use PC travel again if I have a choice.

That's not cool, sorry you had that experience, and thanks for detailing it for us.

I got the free subscription when they offered 100K points for trying out their insiders program. Free is fine but I wouldn't pay to subscribe. I don't need diapers or cosmetics and I prefer picking my own grocery items. The surprise gift is a box of sugary goodies that no one at home will touch. No upcoming trips so haven't tried PC Travel. The only perks I sort of like is the extra points for buying PC organic produces but again it only applies to PC brand. Definitely will not renew when the first year subscription expires.
