|$10 coupon for your friends!
||[Dec. 16th, 2009|02:59 pm]
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
eh, all my friends have paid accounts, so i'm out on this one. Interesting idea though.

Where's the gift for those of us who have already paid and supported LJ for years?? Not only you give us aquat, but you make us sell accounts to our friends disguised as gifts!!! I'm very disappointed, LJ…
I sent out all ten of my coupons this morning. I know that since then, one person has accepted while another has declined. Yet at the bottom of the page it says I've only sent out one and have nine left to send, and the people I sent them to no longer have "Sent" next to their names. Meanwhile, the one who said she was going to decline has "Applied" next to her name.
What's going on? I just want a better way to keep track of who's gotten one and who hasn't, and also who's going to actually use it.
How about the person with paid account gets a coupon for $10 that they can use to send gifties and things to their friends?
i got two coupons from two friends. can i redeem them both at the same time? i tried, it actually said i would be billed $0.00, but i couldn't enter my credit card information after that.
never mind, saw the answer on the last page
is this broken somehow, this morning? i sent out a coupon yesterday, no problem, afaik. this morning i'm trying to send out a second one but after i hit "send coupons" the page refreshes but tells me i've still only sent out one and have 9 remaining.
Because this isn't so much a "gift" as a rather obvious attempt to get paid users to shill paid status to their "deadbeat" friends, preferably with auto-renewing paid memberships for next year's budget.
As others have mentioned, most of the people I know who want paid accounts either have them, or still wouldn't pay for them if they were ten bucks cheaper. I understand that they're doing a promotion to drum up business, but I think that a lot of people aren't going to see much benefit from these coupons.
I sent a friend a coupon as well as a gift certificate for the remainder of the price; it won't let her enter both. Is this a bug, or is it really impossible to give this as an actual no-strings-attached gift?
Hey hun! Thanks so much for the coupon! Unfotch we've just gotten rid of our current credit card so I couldnt make the rest of the payment.. But thanks so much for thinking of me :) Merry Christmas!
How do I tell if this is working? I went to the link and checked the names of people I want to send coupons to, but I don't get a confirmation message or anything, and it still says I've sent 0 coupons. I'm so confused!
I'm trying to send some coupons but it shows "0 from 10 sent" all the tome
Why is the "invite to paid" page still up if it's not working? It still indicates
You've sent 0 holiday coupons.
You have 10 coupons left to send.
There's no mention of the date the offer ends. If this was a shop you'd have to honour the discount even if the offer has expired.

saying: [...] r, but oh well.
Anyway, thanks to having one perm and like five paid accounts, I have a boatload of the $10 Off Paid Account Coupons [...]
