$10 coupon for your friends! [Dec. 16th, 2009|02:59 pm]
Paid Members

[marta]
If you have a Paid or Permanent account, you can now send 10 of your non-Paid friends a $10 coupon. Your friend will be able to purchase a Paid Account for $9.95 (instead of $19.95) for one year by enrolling in our automatic payment plan or make a manual payment of $15 (instead of $25).

  • All Paid and Permanent accounts can send out the coupons by clicking here (it's also under Friends -> Holiday promotion in the site header)
  • You can also send to people not on your Friends list by manually entering the username in the field provided
  • If your friend declines the invitation, it will be returned to your available invitation pool and you'll be able to send to someone else
  • You can send the invitations until January 15th

Ditto.

And honestly, I think the lolcats talk is a little too passe to start incorporating it into official live journal announcements.

I love promotions where the person who has been paying all along gets squat.

This had seriously better not be the so-called "holiday promotion".

If it is, then, DAMN, you guys need to get a better marketing department. And better brains.

Or, y'know, brains at ALL.

it'd be easier if you filtered out everyone who already had a paid account.

At least when I look at my list, it seems like they do.

why can we only use this for personal journals and not for communities?

Since you can't log in as a community, the community wouldn't be able to redeem the invitation.

While I do have friends with basic accounts (obviously), it'd be nice if I could also send the coupons to friends with paid accounts and they can use it for extra userpics or something.

(Edited to fix really shitty wording. =P)

... What the hell is this?


Current balance

You've sent 6 holiday coupons.
You have 4 coupons left to send.


Considering this has been up, what, all of ten minutes, how did I mysteriously send 6 coupons I don't remember sending?

I'm checking on this - can you please refresh the page and see if it corrects?

Realizing that I have a permanent account, so me using $10 for myself is nigh useless unless I put it toward a t-shirt or something ... I'm a college student, damn it, and t-shirts are important to me. :( Where's the bonus for those of us who have already shelled out over $100 to this site?

The bonus is when you're getting all the perks years down the line without paying any more :P

Are these still going to be available to us if our paid account expires before we send them all?

Only Paid users can use that URL, so I don't believe so.

The term "non-Paid friends" is kind of hilarious, out of context.

Yeah, I was counting on that one too, I use it every year. It's actually a useful reward to me, as a paid user, rather than one of these. If my friends wanted paid accounts, they would have them.

I sincerely hope they're just a bit late implementing it this year.

Um. Why does it say that I've sent out 10 of these invites when I just checked that page for the first time in my life?

Mmm, on mine it's written:

You've sent 10 holiday coupons.
You have 0 coupons left to send.


But I didn't send any, it's the first time that I go see that page...

Evidently a couple refreshs will sort things out? See above.
