Is it really free forever?

It sure is. As long as you've got fewer than 2,000 subscribers across all lists in your account, you can send up to 12,000 emails per month without paying us a dime. We won't even ask for a credit card.

Why should I upgrade to a paid account?

As a paying customer, you can send more than 12,000 emails a month, access additional features, and remove MailChimp’s badge from your campaign footers.
