It's December holiday promo time!

Hello, all! It's December, and long-time Dreamwidth folks know what that means: it's time for our December holiday points bonus! Plus, we have some good news for those of you who pay by check/money order...

For the month of December, all orders of points and paid time in the Shop, for you or as a gift, will get 10% of your completed cart sent to you in points after you finish the transaction. For instance, if you buy an order of 12 months of paid time for $35 (350 points), you'll get 35 points when the order is complete, to use on a future purchase.

This bonus only applies to orders of paid time and points: rename tokens and bonus icon slots don't receive bonuses. If you buy paid time for a friend, the bonus points will be sent to you, not to them.

The order must be completed in the month of December. IMPORTANT: "the month of December" is defined by server time (which is in UTC), not by your local time zone. So, if you're in EST, the promo ends on December 31 at 7PM your time. Every year a few people think that they have more time to make an order than they do, so if you want to take advantage of the promo, it's a good idea to do it before the last day.

This is our way of saying "thank you" to all y'all who make this place home and believe in it enough to help us keep it running. We may not have all the bells and whistles of other social sites, but unlike them, we don't accept advertising or venture capital and we don't mine your data and sell it to third parties -- and we never will. Your support are what has let us keep that promise for almost a decade now, and it's our tradition to end the year with a promotion that acknowledges that. (I seriously can't believe we've been at this for almost 10 years now.)

The good news for people who pay by check/money order: I don't think there's a one of you who hasn't gotten frustrated by the delays our post office causes with their terrible service and irregular hours. We're in the process of switching to a private mail forwarding service instead. The switch isn't complete yet, but as soon as it is, we'll update the address that the shop tells you to send your payment to. If you're paying by check/money order, please watch out for an address change! And one other change this will require: the new service won't let us have you include the order number on the front of the envelope, so you'll have to make absolutely sure that you include your order number on the check itself or include a piece of paper in the envelope that has your order number on it.

We hope you all have a good December no matter what holidays you do or don't celebrate, and wish you all a wonderful 2019.
