I purchased the premium package yesterday morning because I wanted my own site and wanted to attract more traffic. You get your own domain, no pop-up ads, monetize your site, $100 in credit for ads to make money and more. I still have more to explore but so far it is great. The price was $124 but I got 20% off of the WordPress website. You can also get 15% off of your package from retailmenot.
