Duotrope? Use It or Lose it?

Penny Wilson Writes

Duotrope.  Have you heard of it?  Do you use it?  I’ve heard of it here and there but have had no experience with it. 

From my understanding, they offer a Submission Tracker as well as listings of publishers.  Their site says “We help you save time finding publishers or agents for your work, so you can focus on creating. Our market listings are up to date and full of information you won’t find elsewhere. We also offer submission trackers, custom searches, deadline calendars, statistical reports, and extensive interviews.” 

Duotrope’s fees are inexpensive enough, $5.00 per month or $50.00 per year.  I do feel that we writers get nickeled & dimed to death by everything that costs us though.   

So give me your honest feedback.  Is Duotrope worth it?  Have you had any success with them?  Or is this just another money drain?  

I appreciate your input!
