I've always rented it from my local library for free 🙂

This is terribly overpriced.

 

If you use coupon codes, you can get a 2 year premium subscription of TheChairmansBao, Chinesepod and Lingq all together for that price. 

 

As others said, rent it from the library. In my opinion, Pimsleur is actually not that good. There are several tracks that simply explain Chinese customs and culture (all in English). The vocabulary of Pimsleur 5 is also not that "advanced" or spectacular in my opinion.
