Over the years Weight Watchers has established itself as the most popular and highest-rated commercial diet in America.
So, how much does Weight Watchers cost? That depends on how much support you need, which WeightWatchers membership you choose, and which promotion you sign up with. Here’s more about Weight Watchers membership and plan pricing.
1. Weight Watchers Membership Cost: Digital, Workshops, and 1-on-1 Coaching
Here’s how much Weight Watchers costs per month after the initial 1-6 months promotion ends: (Updated for 2022)
- Digital: $22.95/month ($5.30/week, $275.40/year)
- Workshops: $54.95/month ($12.68/week, $659.40/year)
- 1-on-1 Coaching: $59.95/month ($13.82/week, $718.80/year)
All Weight Watchers memberships include Digital and renew monthly at these prices after the initial 1-6 month promotional period or discount ends.
Tip: A $20 starter fee is also applied to all new memberships unless you have a coupon. An early termination fee of up to $64 applies if you cancel before your 3 or 6-month commitment ends. Additional taxes may also apply in certain states.
As you can see, Weight Watchers memberships that include additional support, like Workshops and 1-on1 Coaching generally cost more than Digital. (The Weight Watchers Digital 360 plan is no longer available.)
OK, so now you know how much each plan will cost when it renews after your 1-6 month promotional period. Thinking of joining WW? Now it’s time to choose the promotion that will save you the most money.
Here’s how Weight Watchers promotional pricing works when you first signup.
2. Weight Watchers Promotional Pricing: First 1-6 Months:
WW (Weight Watchers) offers one featured promotion every week, plus one semi-exclusive promotion that they give to select affiliates to promote.
Our exclusive deal is usually better than the on-site promotion for WW Digital!
You can choose to lock in the promotional rate for 1, 3, or 6-months. To see details of the savings, click on “Price breakdown” like this:
As you can see, you will save more when you choose a longer membership. However, if you are not ready to make a longer commitment, then the 6-month savings plan may not be best for your needs.
The cheapest way to join Weight Watchers is with the 6-month savings which get you the first 6 months at a promotional rate of up to a 60% discount! If you’d rather pay monthly with no commitment, you can choose the 1-Month (monthly billing) option at a higher price.
3. Total Cost of Weight Watchers?
Unlike diets that include meal delivery such as Nutrisystem, the cost of WW does not include any food. That means even though membership costs $21.95-59.95 per month, most of the monthly expenses of following WeightWatchers will be the food you choose to purchase.
What WW members spend each month on food varies significantly, so it’s hard to give an estimate of the total monthly cost. However, we will say that dining out at restaurants costs significantly more than cooking at home.

Final Thoughts on Weight Watchers Cost:
If you are considering joining Weight Watchers, it’s important to imagine which of their plans fits best into your lifestyle. Those who are busy or prefer to go it alone might find that WeightWatchers Digital or Digital 360 work best with their lifestyle.
Those who do better with support may want to invest in adding Workshops or 1-on-1 Coaching to stay on track. You can also try Weight Watchers free for a month if you are afraid of commitment, although it’s not the best long-term savings.
Regardless of which plan you choose, you’ll have web and app-based access to Weight Watchers tools to track your meals, feel your best, and stay inspired.
If you do join Weight Watchers, good luck, and thanks for stopping by Black Alliance!
