Well, It's Official... :(  
After looking at my finances, the permaccount is still going to be just out of my reach this year. I'll be lucky to get all of the gifts on my list this year at the level at which I wanted them. One way or another, I will beg, borrow, or steal the money the next time they put them up. But the price is just way too insane right now.

But YAY for all those that have them and the now insanely awesome amount of icons! My jealousy knows no bounds. :D

I can't afford that stuff either. Oh well.

But congrats to the ones that are able to get their accounts.

It wouldn't bother me so much not to have it if I didn't use this thing so much. But yeah, it's just too expensive.

I can't afford one either - I'm not sure I could justify to myself spending that much money even if I could. Though I thought they were expensive when they were only 100 bucks - should have gotten one then, I guess.

Oh well.

I see I'm not the only one that noticed that the price is just moving steadily upward, then? And me neither on the spending, although I'd do it in a heartbeat if I knew I had the money. :(

Yeah the price keeps going up. From what I understand they raised the price to give $25 of it to some charity though. Not that makes it any easier to afford.

Aww *hugs* I know what you mean, I don't have one neither and I know I won't have one anytime soon this year. Oh, well...

I think the main reason it bothers me is that I'm always worried that I'll forget the pay date for my account and lose all of the goodies I have. It would be so nice just to not worry about having the money again. I know I sound like I'm just whining, but there is a reasoning behind it. :)

You know, I forgot to pay on time, once, and I didn't lose all my stuff, they were put on hold, not being able to be use, but not deleted. So even if we pay a bit late, they won't disappear. Not much a consolation, but it's good to know, no?

*huggles you anyway* ;p

I feel your pain. :( The elusive Permaccount is there, just out of my reach. >_< Even if I get that money soon, I've still gotta spend it on bills, healthcare, and a new stove. *fingers crossed*

But meh. It's just icons. I can - *gasp* - live without more... O_o *trembles*

Same here. It just sucks that there's no discount for those that have been here a while and that the price creeps up higher every year. And I don't even just want it for the icons (hard to believe, but true). I just have the fear of forgetting my pay date and losing the goodies I have because I can't afford the extras on the next pay cycle.

If it makes you feel any better, I had to do the same thing.

I think next year they need to give a discount to those who have had a paid account for a certain amount of time.

SERIOUSLY!!! I've had a paid account for almost 7 years now!

*LOL* They should give you yours free then, Lea. ;)
Lois: Clois :: Clark Lois Paperkalalanekent on December 5th, 2008 06:19 pm (UTC)
I'm in total agreement! They really should. Then again, it went up, what? It seems like it went up $50 this year? I know I remember seeing $120 last year...

Aw, sweetie... you know I would still be "paid" if not for my fairy... *hugs*
Lois: Clois :: Comfortkalalanekent on December 5th, 2008 06:22 pm (UTC)
Not your fault, Mom. And I know that the 'fairy' thought that you especially needed it because of your fanbase, which is very much the case. I just should have tried to buy one last year. *hugs*
