A Letter From Mr. Piggy About Expiration Dates

Dear Lomographers, we apologize but many of you received a mistaken email recently saying that your Piggies will expire soon. Don’t worry, if you already had Piggies in your account, your old expiration date is still the same, we've just added 10 Piggies to it! Read on for a more detailed explanation.

We are very sorry that many people received an email with mistaken information yesterday. Mr. Piggy said that your Piggies are due to expire but he forgot that, if you already have Piggies in your LomoHome account, the old Piggy expiration date remains the same (but still you received 10 additional piggies). The fail-safe way to check when your Piggies expire is by heading to this page (when logged in): http://account.lomography.com/piggies. At the bottom of this page it says your true Piggy expiration date.

If you have any questions about this, please write it in the comments and we’ll try and answer as soon as possible! Thanks and Oink Oink!

    so if the expiration date is january 31 in this page everything is ok..
    i'm still a bit confused, i received holidays piggies and they extended the expiration date to january 31 2012,, and after this i received other piggies etc..

    @icomewhenieatcaponata - Yes, if it says your expiration date is Jan 31st on this page http://account.lomog(…)com/piggies then that's when your Piggies will expire - thanks!

    @aranmanoth - The 10 Piggies we talk about in this article are the 10 free Piggies you will have already received on November 14th - So there are no new Piggies coming; we just wanted to apologize for the confusion about the email which was sent recently - thanks :-)

    @missnothing Queridos Lomógrafos, pedimos disculpas pero muchos de ustedes han recibido un mail erróneo diciendo que sus Piggies estaban por vencerse. No se preocupen, si ya tenían los piggies en su cuenta, la fecha de vencimiento anterior sigue siendo la misma, sólo que agregamos 10 piggies a su cuenta!
    Sentimos mucho que muchas personas hayan recibido el email con la información incorrecta ayer. Mr. Pig dijo que los Piggies estaban por vencerse, pero se olvidó que, si ya tenían Piggies en su cuenta, la fecha de vencimiento de los Piggies anteriores es la válida (aún así reciben 10 Piggies adicionales). La manera segura de chequear el vencimiento de los Piggies es yendo a la siguiente página (habiendo iniciado sesión): http://account.lomog(…)com/piggies . Al final de esa página se encuentra la fecha de vencimiento de tus Piggies.

    Si tienes alguna pregunta sobre esto, por favor escribe en los comentarios de este artículo e intentaremos responderte lo antes posible.
