Subscribing to Genealogy Library

I'm thinking about subscribing to Genealogy Library but am wondering about whether to do it by itself or as part of a "basic membership." (I'm not interested in either of the other memberships. The "deluxe" offers nothing else significant -- I was appalled at the description of "World Family Tree" -- as if a genealogist would simply suck in other people's charts, assuming them to be correct. The "gold" looked tempting at first because of the census records since ancestry.com is still missing two indexes, but when I looked at what genealogy.com offered in census records, I saw that it was quite sad compared to ancestry.com, which is almost totally complete -- almost totally indexed.)

The reason I'm considering the "basic membership" is that it offers both the software and Genealogy Library. I'm still using version 7 and thought it might be time to update. But here's the question: If I pay $69.99 for a "basic membership" that automatically renews, does that mean it automatically renews at that same $69.99? That wouldn't make any sense if the only thing other than the software is Genealogy Library, which is only $49.99 a year. Is the sensible thing to do get the "basic membership" for a year, then drop it and subscribe to Genealogy Library? Having to go through the hassle of canceling after a year probably wouldn't be worth the saving of $10 by getting the software through a "membership," though. Doesn't it make more sense simply to buy the software for $29.99 and sub to Genealogy Library for $49.99, with the latter automatically renewing annually? Or is there something I'm missing in this picture?
