I tanned the past 2 summers and now I have an abnormal mole on my stomach. Needless to say, I'm never going again. Ever. 

I paid like $70 for a month membership but I think I had to pay a few bucks per visit because I only liked the stand up one. 

I used various lotions and liked them all. I'm not picky with those. 

I went at least every 3 days for 15 minutes at a time.

Walmart actually nowsells lotions for indoor tanning for about $15 with bronzers.  I use them.  They work just as well as the expensive salon lotions.

As far as cost, monthly, etc. sorry, I can't help you.  I have my own tanning bed.

 I don't tan anymore...but I used to...EVERY single day.....I paid $40 a month unlimited...so needless to say I was there every day of the week but Sunday...for 15-20 minutes at a time.....for about 3 years.

Thankfully, I don't think I did too much visible damage to my skin...but I DO have alot of tiny moles that I didn't have before......I have not gone in about five years nor do I plan on doing it again.
