    ha ha, like all governements in the US & Europe, massive state investment to (try to) stop the crisis! :))) Hope there's is no such crisis in Piggyland and in the Lomoconomy!! :) But these piggies are going directly to us and not to the bank & insurance companies...! :)))
    Thanks LSI! :)

    Thank you very much!

    But my piggies' expiry date didn't get update itself, like extended for another 90 days?
    How about after I got my LomoLocations' piggypoint?
    Is that it will just stick to the current remaining days?

    Please correct me if I'm wrong :)

    Too bad i was 5 minutes too early with my Ringflash snatch! purchase... But I'm sure I'll get around to order more stuff before they expire...

    However, Reinertlee raised a question I've been meaning to ask for a long time, what happens if you have several piggies with different expiration date stuffed in your bank?
    Let's say these 5 piggies expire on Dec 1st, but by the end of November I get an injection of 10 lomolocation piggies that are due to expire just before New Year. Does these 5 free piggies extend to the latter expiration date or do you still withdraw 5 of them on Dec 1st?

    Once again, thanks for the freebie and cheers from Sweden!

    @ reinertlee

    All piggies earned in the magazine (locations, films, rumbles, etc) are valid for 30 days. Piggies earned someplace else are still 90 days (lomo home of the day). For the piggy giveaway a date was set in the email that was sent out. We also extend the date only if your current date is less than what you would of earned with your current award. So if you have 40 days left and get an award worth 30 days, this means that your date does not change. If you have 10 days left and then get some piggies your deadline will extend to 30 days. Hope this helps :)
