We like that AWeber only has one price plan that changes based on the number of subscribers you have. It makes it easy to pick the right one straight away, without having to check a long table to compare different offers with varying features. They have recently added a free plan to their offering, though with a limit of 500 subscribers, you’ll need to move onto a paid plan fairly quickly. Unfortunately, AWeber isn’t our favorite email marketing solution, ranking rather low in our own table. Their features underwhelmed us, and the user experience is passable at best. Still, if your mind is set on this company, here is their offer:
AWeber costs $19 per month for up to 500 subscribers, $29 per month for up to 2,500 subscribers, $49 per month for 5,000, and $149 per month for up to 25,000 subscribers. There is a free plan, which includes most of the same features as the paid plan, however, you’ll be limited to just 500 subscribers.
So as you can see, many competitors like MailerLite or MailChimp offer a much more generous free plan, making AWeber’s paid plans much less attractive. AWeber is generally quite expensive, and you can get even more features for cheaper with other companies, like Sendinblue. But let’s see what features you get below:
|Templates and smart design editor||700 +||700 +|
|Reporting & Segmentation||Yes||Basic|
|Stock Photos||6,000 +||6,000 +|
|Newsletter inbox preview||No||No|
|Web Push Notifications||Coming soon||No|

Still unsure? You can use our price calculator tool to compare AWeber’s prices with its best alternatives.
As we mentioned earlier, AWeber isn’t our favorite solution for managing email marketing and newsletters. And they are not doing themselves any favors with their pricing and plans, especially by counting unsubscribed users towards your billing.
You get much more for your money with tools like ActiveCampaign and GetResponse, which both offer a range of advanced features that AWeber doesn't, for example, advanced automations, CRM, sales funnels, dynamic landing pages, and more. Alternatively, there are much more affordable tools, which still have more features. MailerLite, for instance, is an excellent tool for beginners and also comes with a great landing page builder and design templates.

As mentioned above, any email address added counts as a subscriber in terms of your monthly quota – even if that person unsubscribes! You should therefore regularly delete your unsubscribes manually to make sure you are not charged extra. AWeber does not charge for anybody listed as Confirmation Pending.
Yes, AWeber has recently added a freemium plan to their offering, which has a good range of features but a small subscriber allowance. These services offer much more generous free plans.
No, you’ll need to pay monthly based on your list size. Moosend is a better choice if you need a pay-as-you-go plan.
