Paying for Premium membership using Linden Dollars



A couple of days ago, we blogged about the 50% off Premium offer for Second Life.
For this quarter Premium is just US$11.25

It is worth mentioning that you can indeed pay for your Premium account with Linden Dollars by cashing them out and holding them on your account.

Here's how: Log on to your dashboard at Secondlife.com and look for the Linden Exchange panel on the left hand side. Click manage, then click Sell.

The amount you need to sell from your Second Life account is L$3,100 and this will raise US$11.37











You will be asked to confirm your password and then your order will be processed.

At this point, this is usually where you would go to the Process Credit part to request funds to be sent to you in US dollars.   But for this method of paying for premium subscription, you leave the money in your account.

Finally, you head over to https://secondlife.com/premium and upgrade your account.  Whenever any payments for Premium, Land Tier etc is taken by the lab, it always checks to see if you have US Dollars on deposit on your account and will always take from that pool first, before debiting your credit card.  Therefore if you wish to remain as a quarterly premium member, you would need to repeat this process every 12 weeks (selling 6200L).  Alternatively, keep an eye out for deals on annual Premium subscription which is an even better offer.


Limited time 50% discount for Premium Membership - They pay you!



Linden Lab is currently offering 50% off Second Life Quarterly Premium Membership.


We have worked out what this means in sterling:

Second Life Premium - Equivalent of just 26p a month




It has to be said, the removal of VAT charges for those of us in Europe, is a huge incentive to encourage new Premium Members.

VAT is no longer charged for Premium Membership!

Second Life Monthly Premium Accounts, just got even better with a price reduction from $9.95 to $9.50 per month.

Let us break this down for residents in the UK, although of course it applies to all countries where VAT is charged.

Old Monthly Price $9.95 plus 20% VAT = $11.94   =  £7.74 per month

New Monthly $9.50  = £6.16 per month
Quarterly $22.50  (with VAT £17.50)  now without VAT £14.58
Annually $72.00 (with VAT £55.98) now without VAT £46.65

Also, you receive 300 L$ every week when you are a premium member.  This is the equivalent of £3.35 per month.

You also receive a one off 1000 L$ bonus, applied to your account after 30 days of being a Premium member worth £2.59

This is a total of  16,600 L$ that you will receive credited to your in-world balance over the course of the year, or in real money £43.56.

So if we take off the money you receive back from being a Premium Member, the equivalent monthy payments for a Premium account become:
Monthly   £2.53
Quarterly 97p
Annually 26p

Benefits of Premium Accounts:

A Linden Home -or- a 512 sq meter parcel for you to build on supporting 117 prims.
Expanded Support, now including Live Chat
Exclusive Activities including Dune Buggy Racing in Racer's Gulch
Free Premium member gifts
Access to Premium member only Sandboxes
Increase from 42 to 60 groups!
Increase from 25 to 50 offline messages!
Other offers and incentives offered constantly.

In conclusion,  If you regularly buy Linden Dollars for purchasing goods, it most definitely worth your while in upgrading your account because of all the added extras you get.  If you regularly purchase more than 1200 L$ in any given month, you could be missing out by not having a Premium Account!

You also significantly benefit all of Second Life.  Subscriptions bring in a regular income for Linden Lab and the team of Developers, but also places another 300 L$ into the virtual economy, per premium member, per week, ensuring that there is a healthy influx of new cash entering the grid on a regular basis.

60 Groups for Second Life Premium users



Second Life now supports 60 groups for its premium members.   Linden Lab writes today:

Today we’re thrilled to be rolling out another perk for Premium members: now you can be a member of 60 groups! Groups have been a consistently popular feature among the Residents of Second Life. It may not be obvious, but group membership can have an impact on the performance of a number of systems. That's why in Second Life's early days, Residents could only join a maximum of 10 groups. Over the years, we've made improvements that enabled us to raise the group limit to a maximum of 42, but we know that for some power users, even that isn't quite enough, and today we're happy to raise the bar for Premium subscribers.  We must make sure that the recent gains in group performance are not jeopardized, so for now the new limit is a pilot program. If there are no problems, we will look forward to raising the limit further (stay tuned!).

Premium members can immediately take advantage of the new limit. Downgrading from Premium membership will not remove you from any of your groups, but it will mean that you cannot join any new groups until you remove yourself from enough groups to get below the Basic account limit, which remains at 42.


Before you upgrade solely for this feature, make sure your viewer supports 60 groups. Many do not support more than 42 at this time.
