We got a year membership back when HSBCO had it on sale. I like it. Some people use it as their "curriculum", but I definitely wouldn't do that. It doesn't "teach" anything at all. It's just extra practice, and yes, it's fun. I like it. I really do. Ben has enjoyed using it. I just wish it were a little more affordable so others would use it.

Others (free) you could consider:

Evelyn used it for about a month. She liked it, but found it was very repetitive when she knew the skill well. Now, that could just be her because she wanted to get a ribbon on each skill, even ones that she had already mastered We ended up switching to Dreambox.com which she likes because it is individualized to her skill set. It's more like a curriculum than ixl and we switched to xtramath.org for math fact practice.
