I just renewed mine.

I used a combination of books, giving to the community and "on the job".. I filled in with the non-premium content. One thing that helped is that lets you filter " already watched" and also filter by the 3 pillars (Technical, leadership and Stategic & Business). This made it easy to know what I needed to fill in to complete my 60. I then paid the $129 (+ $10 FEE) to PMI membership, which dropped the renewal cost to $60 for a total of $199. I assumed that you would order both the membership and the renewal at the same time. This is not true. You have to do 2 seperate purchases with PMI. Had I known this, I would have become a member sooner. However, there is PLENTY of free content without being a member to watch enough training webinars.
Why be a member then? Because now, if I finish my PDUs in the next year, I still get to renew for $60 (for 3 more years) because I will still have the PMI membership.

There are other benefits to the membership, but thought I'd throw out that tidbit about re-renewing in your first year.

you can renew membership ONLY for one year (just before renewing your PMP certification )
So you pay 129 +60+10 =199 instead of 150
So you get one year membership for effectively 49 .
And in that ONE year you can earn lot of PDUs .
Then You keep PMI membership discontinued for two years .
SO IT IS GOOD IDEA to renew strategically once in three years.

Thanks Cornelius!

Seems not a good deal to be member indded.
My only concern is if will be easy to find different type of webinars (leadership, technical, etc...) for PDUs claiming.

so it will cost you $387 to be a member for 3 yrs to save $90 at time of PMP cert renewal.... my math says that is a bad selling point to be a member
