3 months bonus time offer ends 10/15 [Oct. 13th, 2005|10:05 am]

The three months of bonus paid time offer that we announced with the launch of automatic payments ends this Saturday, October 15, 2005 at 11:59 pm Pacific. Anyone with active paid account status on 8/14/05 (the date of the original announcement) is eligible to receive three months of bonus paid time when you switch your account to automatic payments and select the 12-month billing cycle. Read the fine print.

By the way, our auto-magical new system will take into account your remaining paid time and prorate your charges. For example, if you have six months of remaining paid time and you sign up for automatic payments on a 12-month billing cycle, then you’ll have a total of 15 months of paid time and only be charged $9.98 (half of $19.95). Automatic payments can only be setup using a credit or debit card.

Update: For those of you who have taken advantage of this promotion, you can visit the paid account manage page to see when your 3 months of bonus time will apply. Your "next bill amount" may show a non-zero amount but instead of a charge the promotion time will be applied. At the end of the 3 month promotion time your regular billing cycle will resume.

Question About Extras

Between the pro-rating for the initial subscription and the 3 months bonus time, I'm confused how the billing for extra user pics will work. If I add 100 pic capacity today, it says that I'll be charged $29.95 every 12 months, but that means the pics will actually be getting renewed off-sync with the basic subscription... doesn't it?

To be specific, my account next expires at the end of February. I'm pro-rated to about $12 for journal cost if I go onto auto-pay today, and will get 7 months of account, and 12 months of pictures. So would I then get charged $20 in May for my next 12 months of journal time and $10 next October for a year of pictures? Or $30 in May?

Re: Question About Extras

I was wondering about this too. I was going to do it but it didn't seem to be pro-rating my user pics and I don't wanna get ripped off. Even for $1 LOL.

Re: Question About Extras

Autopay syncs your extra pics with your account status. Even though I had them when I set up auto-pay, I waited and added my pics onto it separately. The system synced them and prorated my pics to renew at the same time.

You would be billed 29.95 next October for the total of your yearly account charge and the extra pics combined.

This year, you would be billed the proration on the account and userpics. If you don't now have the extra pics, you would be billed proration on the account charge and 10.00 for the pics.
