Flickr Pro is going free for three months, grab an account now


Yahoo! and CEO Marissa Mayer have been on the right track lately, and they’re looking to continue that straight through this holiday season. It might be the holiday season, or it might be because of a certain other company’s recent stumbles — either way, it’s a pretty good deal.

Yahoo! is now offering Pro accounts on Flickr for free until January 4th! What is normally a $25 per year subscription will now be free for anyone, new or old users alike. Current Pro users will also be getting something pretty good — their payment dates are being pushed back three months.

If you’re an Instagram user feeling burned about the recent changes to their TOS, this might just be the best deal out there for you. If you’re worried about all your favorite filters, they can be found on Flickr’s recently updated (and very nice) mobile app. And if you’re a professional photographer, then Flickr will make you feel right at home with all its sharing features and established Pro community.

    @dan: Oh, really, Dan?!? And what about that woman at the market in the enticingly fitted black jeans you’ve been ogling? ;-) Of course, that was w-a-y before you committed to your present significant other who is the second-most attractive person in the world… just after Lucky Ashraf’s wife.

    Seriously though, What’s wrong with Flickr giving a “free sample” to get you to try and, perhaps, to buy their service?

    @Tom: Thanks for the clarification but enticements are not for me.

    @dan: Hey Dan, Per Flickr … “3 months of Free Pro!”

  • dan

    I’m confused: is this offer free for life or just for the first year?

  • I only got it for 3 months, not a year

  • JMJ

    @Tom: Nope, Tom, not just you.

    Thanks, Enrique, for this and all your work this past year. I’ve enjoyed following you.

    All the best to You, your Family and Associates this Holiday Season.

    Perfect timing to test out my Eye-Fi card. I’m a current Picasa user, but Google’s photo/storage size limits are too confusing to keep up with. Hopefully Flickr is simpler.

    PS: Maybe it’s just me, or it’s related to the recent site crash, but the Forums all go “404” when I click a post/topic.
