What the heck is the difference in Blink charging plans?

    I'm feeling pretty stupid here, but after looking at the Blink charging plans I can't see any reason why I wouldn't become a member vs a guest membership. According to their site, neither charges anything up front or monthly; members simply get a better rate.

    Am I missing something? Why wouldn't everybody always go for being a member?

    There used to be a difference in the beginning where they claimed they'd charge a yearly fee to members, but that never happened. I think the difference now is just that you can charge if you pull up to any blink charger as a guest, but if you have the forethought to register as a member and get a card (linked to a credit card) you get the guest rate.

    It definitely makes no sense. Why not just have members only at no charge other than power usage? I think we'd all appreciate the simplicity of that approach.
