As a Premier member with a few seats for the last 7yrs I'm seriously thinking about not renewing. The increase isn't that big but I've been getting less and less out of my membership each year.
I know you all love Saturday 3pm matches, but, as a dad of 3 kids, the lack of Friday night matches (and more Sundays as well) drastically reduces my chances of attending all the key matches, or having a beer and bringing mates along. (And my wife and kids are sadly only up for coming a few times a season, not every fortnight)

That's not Quins fault exactly, but combined with the price increases, ongoing terrible beer/bars/food, train and parking hassles, and lacklustre results on the pitch, I'm not sure I can stomach the 4-figure bill anymore.

And there always seems to be seats available when I do want to come or BT Sport live coverage.....

I'm out ...Now we're guaranteed to win the Prem next season!

Maybe we should share a Premier Membership as I really struggle to get to Friday & Sunday games!

They need to take these large increases and sort out the bars.
 - better staff who know what they are doing, for example go and get staff from pubs and employ them for the period of the game
- replace the managers who seem to think having someone pouring and someone else just waiting to take the card payment is a good idea
 - quadruple the number of glass return points instead of just using it as a means to make more money by making it difficult to return

If you had a season ticket this season, and buy one next season but in a lower price band, does that count as a renewed season ticket or a new season ticket?
And no, I'm not going to ring the club.

Fairly sure that itís a renewal as I know someone who did this a few years ago.

I'm pretty certain that counts as a renewal too. They expect a number of people each year to move seats & include details about that in the FAQs.

It does count as renewal, when I dropped from touchline to jester it was counted as renewal.

If I've read this right - mine has gone down quite significantly.

One adult, one child, Touchline renewal was £510 (£345 + £165).  If I've read the new family membership right - that is down to £420.  That's a £90 saving.

I was thinking about not renewing, mainly as my son is a teenager now & less interested, but that might make it worth it anyway.

I think you might be reading that wrong. The first picture with the 2019/20 pricing didn't include the Family (1 Adult & 1 Junior) pricing. This season (2019/20) the price for that was:

Premier £645 Renewal (not available as a new membership option)
Club £485 Renewal, £535 New
Touchline £385 Renewal, £435 New

If you've bought two separate memberships (One Adult and one Junior) not at family pricing, then yes, they add up to £510. However, you shouldn't be paying that!

Last year the Family renewal was 385.  It is now 420  (this is for a family of 1 x adult + 1 x child in touchline)

As a jester member, a 28% rise doesn't sit well with me

I will most likely renew because I love quins and love coming to the stoop and watching rugby but I would love to know the clubs thinking behind the 28% rise.

With no discernible improvement on the pitch, bar service as bad as ever, reduced space in the Kings Bar (since they shut the players lounge) and food offering as lousy as ever, I'll be interested to read the justification for 20% increase. Something beyond a trite hashtag would be helpful.

I can't take advantage of a lot of the benefits, such as attended training sessions and team runs, because I have a job.

I'm sure I'll still renew, but it does feel that they are slightly taking the mick when there has been no progress on or off the pitch (unless you include the women's team, but that doesn't really interest me)

When it comes to price rises for a product that has not improved for several years they rely on the "I will most likely renew because I love Quins" view of most current ST holders.

As each year goes by I get more cynical about the business side of Quins, and how they only want me there to take my money.
