Give More and Permanent Account Sale [Nov. 25th, 2008|03:40 pm]
Paid Members


Hi! This is a quick entry to let you know that LiveJournal will soon be running some of its regular (and not so regular) holiday promotions.
  • Give More. The Give More promotion runs for the entire month of December and it makes your holiday gift of paid time for someone else a little extra special. Not only does the recipient get paid time, they also receive a free userpic upgrade for the same duration of the gifted paid time. If you give someone a year's paid time, for example, they'll also get the userpic upgrade for that year as well. So, the more you give, the more they get. Give to a friend, a soon-to-be-friend, or even surprise someone at random with a bit of holiday cheer.

  • Permanent Account Sale. Would you like to have your Paid Account for life, enjoying all those great features (and more) forever without having to worry about payments ever again? Well, then the Permanent Account Sale is for you! Starting on December 4, we're once again offering the opportunity to buy Permanent Accounts—in additional to all the features of paid accounts, these accounts will include increased storage (from 10 to 15GB) and more userpics (increased from 100 to 150 + up to 44 loyalty userpics). This time around the sale is just for personal journals. If you've been thinking about it or have missed our sales in the past, don't hesitate—the sale only lasts a week and who knows when the next one will be? Act now to make your LiveJournal eternal.

Thanks! Oh, and remember: If you buy a Permanent Account, you can transfer your remaining paid time and userpics to any other LiveJournal user you choose, so that existing paid time won't go to waste.

How about having some sort of Christmas lottery to give out a limited number of permanent accounts? The world is presently experiencing a serious economic recession; I'm sure that most current subscribers would rather put that $175 elsewhere, such as rent. We've all been loyal LJ subscribers and have caused your website no trouble, therefore we deserve a nice gift from the LJ Santa.

Lolz, I'm not even getting LJ comment notifications. Maybe if I was by now I would consider this, but that's too much money IMO.

"If you give someone a year's paid time, for example, they'll also get the userpic upgrade for that year as well."

So, does this "Give More" promotion work if I want to buy a paid account for myself, or do I HAVE to buy one for someone else to get the bonus userpics?

And if the answer to that is no, can I just log onto another account and purchase a paid account for my main LJ, or would that get me into trouble? :P I've been waiting until December to re-purchase a paid account for myself, since I know you guys often have some kind of bargain going on for Christmas.

Technically, it's meant for gifts to others. If you purchased for yourself using another account we wouldn't track you down, though.

Urgle. Shame you didn't have this sale when the Aussie dollar was closer to parity! AUD 271.50 is a bit too rich for my blood :-(

It's worth mentioning that the clock keeps ticking on your paid time even after you've upgraded to a permanent account, so gift your remaining time ASAP after upgrading. (I lost mine.)

$100 is too much, much less $175.

If you're going to make people donate to charities through permanent account sales (which is a rather lame way of creating publicity, btw), you could at least let them donate to a charity of their own choice.

Completely agreed.

I also wonder if we can still write off the $25 donation even though it's within a payment for a service rendered.

If you buy a Permanent Account, you can transfer your remaining paid time and userpics to any other LiveJournal user you choose, so that existing paid time won't go to waste.

But will the transfer be anonymous? Meaning, will the user receiving the paid time and userpics I will hypothetically transfer them after I buy the Permanent Account know it's from me?

It wasn't anonymous when I picked up my permanent accounts.

A question; in the news post here, it says "The most userpics available on LJ (currently 144 and increasing all the time with our Loyalty Userpics program)".
I read this as that everyone who buys a Permanent account will get the maximum number of userpics + automatically the maximim number of loyalty userpics.

But, now you post "increased from 100 to 150 + up to 44 loyalty userpics", which is not the same as above, because then everyone who buys a permanent account would automatically get 150+44=194 userpics...
Why have you changed this?

They increased the user pic and storage space limits. I am guessing that they will be doing the same with all other accounts soon.
