LOL,,,first of all it is still offered. Second, rest assured they were not losing money on it, they are just making much more now. Some people have forgotten how inexpensive it use to be for a lifetime membership. It was just a few years ago that they raised their prices across the board. The % of increase was most dramatic for the lifetime membership though everything went up pretty high. The trouble is that they have cut back on services, awards, manpower, etc. all in the name of maximizing profit at the alter of the almighty dollar.
