What we use: Your Mailinglist Provider. They have a free version for smaller mailinglists: you can send 1000 emails for free every month. Let's say that you send an email twice in a month, with 450 recipients: that's 900 emails sent in a month. It's free, easy, reliable and fast. The free account is also very good if you want to test the software and compare it with some other services. Visit Your Mailinglist Provider for more info about the different accounts. Also read our YMLP review.
Get Response is another quality service. The pricing of this service is a bit higher: 10 dollars per month for a list of 1000 subscribers.
Finally, there's Aweber. You can test their service out during 1 month (they only ask 1 dollar for this). After that it's about 19 dollars per month (up to 500 subscribers). There's no limit on the amout of emails that you are sending. If you've got more subscribers, then you'll pay extra. Up to 2500 subscribers it's about 30 dollars extra per month.
All of these services are continually working to offer new options to their users!

You can see that YMLP, Get Response or Aweber can all be the cheapest option, depending on your needs. Your Mailinglist Provider is the cheapest for real small lists or if you don't need all email statistics (maybe not necessary if you're not running a business). It's also a cheap service if you don't email that often. Their pricing is based on the number of emails you send out each month. YMLP is not so cheap when you email your list very frequently or if you want to have access to all the advanced statistics.
Get Response and Aweber both have unlimited emails. Their pricing is based on the number of subscribers you have. They also offer all features on all their plans whereas YMLP charges more for detailed email statistics.
If you're planning to send a lot of emails to your subscribers, Aweber and Get Response are the better option for you. Up until 1000 subscribers, Get Response is cheaper than Aweber. After that Get Response stays 4 dollars cheaper per month. But above 25 000 subscribers, Get Response costs 5 dollars more than Aweber.
