Permanent Account Sale Coming Soon
It's almost here—the Permanent Account sale! For a limited time only, you can purchase a Permanent Account for only $175. Your chance to get LiveJournal for life starts on November 20. Check out the benefits:
* All the cool features offered to Paid Accounts
* The highest amount of storage available on LJ (currently 10GB, but we think there might be room to grow in there)
* No ads in your journal and, as long as you're logged in, you won't see ads anywhere on LiveJournal
* The most userpics available on LJ (currently 144 and increasing all the time with our Loyalty Userpics program)
* $25 of your purchase price donated to charity (look for details about the chosen organizations in the next news post)
* The peace of mind that comes with never having to make another payment
We've been talking about this sale for a while now, so hopefully you've had some time to save up for it. Remember, the Permanent Account sale is very temporary. We don't want anyone to miss out, so tell all your friends that the sale starts November 20 and ends November 26. After that you'll have to wait at least another year for your chance to buy a Permanent Account.
When you purchase a Permanent Account, you can gift a friend with any balance of paid time or extra userpics you might have. Look for more details in the next news post, and keep an eye on the Gift Shop to buy your Permanent Account as soon as they go on sale!
Wow! These have gotten expensive. I have a perm account and I am sure it was not that much when I bought mine a couple of years ago.
