I have subscribed in the past but my membership must have lapsed. It is doubtful I graduated to be a master as I consider myself to be a work-in-progress in regards to grammar and most other things.  I liked it but obviously not enough to keep my membership active.

I use the premium version of Grammarly, and it works for me.  It doesn't always like my writing style and tries to correct me, so I have to ignore some of the suggestions.

HI John- I've been using it for years and it works.  When I'm writing a comment here or writing a post in Google Drive, it points out spelling errors and often grammatical mistakes.

Hi John... I don't use it. My grammar is excellent... comes from many hours of lessons of diagramming sentences in grade school. I also don't use spellcheck... more times I'm correct.

I used it and my college son used the paid account. Teach yourself the repeated errors you make in spelling and sentence structure. I think it is worthwhile. Your brain can process far more than the AI in this program, employ it to get those words flowing

No one says what I want to say better than I can.

No one can market me better than I can.

No one can present ME better than I can.

Unfortunately, there is no "I" or "ME" in grammarly.

Folks read because they see a personal voice and memorable ideas. And to achieve that sometimes you gotta break a few rules.

I've yet to hear anyone comment I read 'so and so' cause their grammar is perfect. But I do hear those with their belt cinched to tight find the small things block good ideas, perfection prevents good.

I'm not a fan of the program, John. It slowed me down too much.

So, I write, I proof and that's good enough for me. I will never claim to be perfect!

I've started using the free version for a little bit now.  Haven't used it that much though.  It mainly serves another purpose for me now, just to clean up some outsourced stuff.

I have not used it; do my own "self-check". Grammarly could be a bit like the auto correct function i.e. it might suggest the wrong structure not fully comprehending the intended message. Some sentences might be grammatically correct, but the more subtle meaning could be different.

I use the free Grammarly version.  It helps with spelling and grammar but doe not like my writing style.  I tend to be short to the point without some necessary words (the, a, etc...) at the beginning of sentences.
