Due to my subscriptions to several Fool newsletters, I receive alot of junk investment mail (a topic for discussion another time), but I recently received an offer from the AAII to join for a "reduced rate" of $29 for the first year because "they are celebrating 25 successful years." Of course, I went to the website, and sure enough, it's $29 for any domestic shlep who joins, anytime. For a moment, I thought I was special.....OK, so their marketing pitch is really lame. However, what I really want to know is how pleased AAII members are with SI Pro, and whether or not it makes sense for somebody in my shoes.

I know the answer to the last part of that question is very subjective, but here's some background with the hopes of helping: I fancy myself a value investor, but I subscribe to "Hidden Gems" and "Fool Advisor" as well. I've got roughly $50K of what I deem "my money" (my 401K is deemed to be "somebody else's money", since somebody else has a great deal to say about just what I can invest that money in) in the market, and I continue to add about $5K to $7.5K per year. I spend about 2 to 4 hours a week studying my current picks, and prospects. I've done fairly well (averaging about 15%/year since really becoming serious a few years ago), but always wonder if I can do better.

Is there anybody out there with similar circumstances that loves/hates SI Pro? Even if your circumstances aren't similar, I'd be interested in thoughtful insight.
