Pricing disparity between in-app signup and web site signup

My long-term premium membership has apparently stopped, because when I open MFP now it offers to upgrade me -- and the pricing shown in the app is SUPER HIGH, at $79.99 per year or $19.99 per month.

I went to the web site to see if there was any discussion of why, and found something interesting: Premium as listed on is $49.99 per year or $9.99 per month.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but WTF? Is this intentional?

    Probably mostly due to apple and google's huge cut in app revenue. If you sign up with the app, MFP has to pay them 30% or so, versus zero if you sign up on the web site. I don't even have an account on my phone and don't pay for apps, though I have various web subscriptions for things.
