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


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

Pity this isn't happening over on Dreamwidth. I wouldn't recommend LJ for anyone any more, not with all the stupid Soviet-era crap the company keeps piling onto its users.

You guys have a serious image problem, you know that? You should take a look at that... or else just accept that LJ is a purely Russian phenomenon now and sell the rest-of-the-world users to some other company. Because anyone who fails this badly doing a simple Christmas give-away just doesn't have what it takes to provide a service.

Oh please. Nothing about this post is "Soviet-era crap". Just because LJ is more popular in Russia than the states and is owned by a Russian company doesn't mean OMG SOVIET RUSSIA is the source of business decisions we don't like. It's a knee-jerk, discriminatory, and short sighted reaction.

LJ is lucky it was popular enough in Russia to be bought by a Russian company. Its previous owner, Six Apart, has cannibalized and killed every single other web property it has bought--SplashBlog, Rojo, Pownce, etc. If LJ hadn't have been popular enough in Russia to make it valuable for a Russian company to buy, then it might have died.

Dreamwidth's holiday promotion is such that if you buy paid time for someone, you get some for yourself for free. :)
