It's Free Premium Membership Day!

Thu Jan 19, 2012, 12:03 AM

Welcome, one and all, to Free Premium Membership Day!  Today, we're giving every deviantART member an all-access Premium Membership pass!  

:eager:  Here's the deal!

Your username's symbol might look the same, but your account has been granted all the privileges of a Premium Member!  Think of the day as an open house -- stop by, grab a cookie, and check out the features and goodies your Premium Membership has to offer.  

For today only -- from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM Los Angeles, CA, time on January 19th -- all deviants can enjoy:

:bulletgreen:  JournalSKINS!
Browse through the Installable Journal Skins category to pick your favorite JournalSKINS.  (Any journal published today that includes a JournalSKIN will keep its fancy design long after Premium Membership Day is over -- until it is edited.)

:bulletgreen:  No ads! 
Browse deviantART to your heart's content with no advertisements.

:bulletgreen: Browse up to 400% more deviations! 
View more deviations by turning up your browse setting to 120 thumbnails per page.

:bulletgreen: Enable Critiques! 
Enable Critiques on your work to encourage enhanced feedback, and help your fellow artists by giving Critiques freely.  All Critiques approved by a deviant with an active Premium Membership will remain, even after the clock strikes midnight. 

:bulletgreen:  Grab Prints or deviantWEAR for less! 
All Premium Members receive 10% off of Prints or deviantWEAR purchases. 

:bulletgreen:  And more! 
See a full list of benefits herePlease note that, for today, Way Back browsing will not be available. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

My personal favorite Premium Member perk is exclusive access to PremiumMembers.  Not only does this group keep deviants up-to-date on the latest Premium Membership benefits, but it also hosts weekly contests and events for Premium Members -- normally on Thursdays.

:heart:  We're sharing the love!

As luck would have it, today is Thursday, which means it's contest day for those with active Premium Memberships.  And guess what everyone has today?  :la:

For a lucky few, Premium Membership Day will last for an entire year because we're looking for new inductees into the sacred order of Premium Members... so we're giving away 50 one-year Premium Memberships! 

How can you get one of these?  It's simple.  Just tell us how you're celebrating Free Premium Membership Day in the comments of this journal and you could win! 

Is it with a rousing ditty of Premium Membership pride?
Or by posting a journal using the skin you've always had your eye on?
Perhaps today you'll give five Critiques to deserving deviants.

You tell us!

We'll choose our favorite 50 with the most deviousness, and those deviants will each receive a one-year Premium Membership!

Spread the word and let it be known!  Free Premium Membership Day only lasts from 12:00 AM to 11:59 PM Los Angeles, CA, time.  So, use it and abuse it!  ;) 

:onfire: Update!

Thank you to everyone who participated in Free Premium Membership Day! We had a great time, and we hope you did as well. :woohoo:

Check out the 50 winners of our one-year Premium Membership giveaway! Please note that all Premium Memberships have been applied, though there may be a delay in receiving your upgraded user symbol.

Does this take place on Jan 19 every year?
dragontamer155 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This is so unfair! They deleted all my stuff afterwards!!! What was the point of that if I can't keep any of it?!
CaraMistwolf Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
IK! I spend an hour decorating my page then they delete it all!
dragontamer155 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yusss AND it was on a Monday so I barely got time to do anything amazing!!!
CaraMistwolf Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
that sucked soo bad, I wish I could keep what I got on that day, the only kepable thing is journal skin and it will dissappear if you make a nother one, that sucked eh

I knowwwwwwwwwwwwwww blahhh

I agree! The ad-free browsing is nice, but what's the point of letting people request critiques and make polls if it's gone the next day? One day isn't nearly enough time for most artists to even get a little bit of feedback.
dragontamer155 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Exactly! It would have been nice if we could at least keep the skin on the journals we had them on. I need to add some stuff to one but I really like the skin on it, so I can't!
