I've learned from the forum that you had a "777" birthday promotion where one could get a CDI plan for $10 for a YEAR. As a loyal customer, I'm disappointed that "we dreamhostees" didn't hear about this too. There are in fact no information about this on the DH website, but Google turns up some interesting blogs.
I've just paid $157 to upgrade my CDI plan to a Code Monster plan on top of what I had already pre-paid for the CDI plan. Instead of this, I now learn that I could simply have opened a new "777" ten-dollar account - that would have been 94% cheaper. Basically I've just paid $147.29 for nothing. Although that last sentence is not precisely true because there are other differences between CDI and Code Monster, I still feel ripped off.
With DreamHost's track record of being a fine company, this "777" promotion is a real surprise and disappointment.
