One common cause of this problem is when members have more than one site account without realizing it; one is a standard Slate account, and the other is Slate Plus. Verify which email address you used to sign up, which may be different than the one on your receipt. Make sure to access your account through the same log-in you used to sign up for Slate Plus—if you created your account using your Facebook, Yahoo, Google, or Twitter account, make sure to click the appropriate button to log in.

If you are logged in with the correct account, but still having trouble, try signing out of your account. Then clear your browser’s cookies and sign back in.


It’s also possible that you have enabled an extension, ad blocker, or certain browser settings that are interfering with the login system. Try disabling your ad blocker, adjusting your settings, or using an alternate browser.
