flickr Existing Flickr Pro Account holders as well as those of you considering purchasing one, listen up: Flickr has a deal going on for the month of January where you’ll get three free months! It’s not a bad deal at all, but you’ll have to act soon, and it does work a little differently than what you might expect.

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Go to the Flickr gift site – this is where people go when they want to purchase a subscription as a gift
  • Purchase a 12 month gift subscription which will cost your $24.95 (this gift will end up being yours)
  • Once you do that, you’ll get a gift code to use here to redeem the 12 months
  • After the purchase has been made, three free months will be added to your account

The whole idea behind this is that while you are giving an account to someone, you’re getting rewarded by Flickr adding three free months to your account. It reminds me of certain places like restaurants around the holidays that will offer you a free $5 gift card for you to keep if you purchase a $25 gift card for someone else. In this situation, the “gift” subscription will be for you as well.

Just keep in mind that the offer ends on January 31st and both existing Pro account members (this will renew your current account) as well as new ones are eligible.
