A Notice About Your Account
Greetings from Photobucket. We’re reaching out to let you know that your free account is scheduled to be deleted as Photobucket is moving to a paid subscription platform. If you’d like to keep your photos, please log in and upgrade to any one of our subscription tiers. We look forward to storing your memories!

RE: A Notice About Your Account
Hi there from Photobucket. We noticed you haven’t upgraded your membership yet, so wanted to circle back and say we get it—life gets in the way. But you’ll want to make sure to upgrade as soon as possible or else risk losing your photos. Might I recommend the Premium plan for $8 a month? For that, you get one terabyte of storage, plus sharing. I know, crazy deal. Store you soon! :-P

RE: RE: A Notice About Your Account
Maybe we weren’t clear before, but this is no joke. Your photos will be deleted. We can’t say when exactly, because the tech team has it all automated on a rolling basis, but it’s happening. And soon. Does that not stress you out? Because it stresses us out. A lot.

Do you really want to risk losing memories like this?

Or this…

Or the three other photos that look like they were unintentionally uploaded from a 2008 Android phone? We don’t think so.

If the Premium tier is too much, try the MyBucket plan. It’s only $5 a month. It doesn’t include sharing, but you could always upgrade later. Please, let’s work together on this. Act now.

Look, we didn’t want to have to do this, but you’re forcing us to remind you of this…

We don’t know what this is. And we don’t want to know what this is. But we’re willing to bet it’s compromising. So here’s what you’re going to do. You’re going to sign up for the Premium plan. You’re going to sign up at the annual rate and not the monthly rate, which will save you $16 a year, because we’re nice. Then you’re going to store photos. You’re going to share photos. And you’re going to tell everyone you know how amazing this service is because… This. Has. To. Work. We can’t just store random screenshots for free anymore. It’s not a tenable business. We have employees and families and crushing credit card debt and the simple dream that one day we’ll get a call that Uncle So-and-so died and left us everything. You understand that, don’t you?

Your free Photobucket account is teetering on the brink. And now? So is your public reputation. Comply with our demands, or we show the world.

RE: RE: RE: RE: A Notice About Your Account
There. Your account has been deleted. Are you happy? Because we’re not happy. We’re miserable. Sure, we want to make money like anybody else, but we got into this business to save memories, not destroy them. But I guess that’s just the way of the world today, isn’t it? Everybody shuffling along, blinkered to the plight of others. Everyone out for themselves.

At the end of this message, you’ll find a voucher for six months free of Photobucket Premium. And another voucher for three free months of Fubo, whatever that is. Why we’re rewarding your apathy and disregard is a mystery to us. Some algorithm in a corner office somewhere told us to do it, and far be it from we mere mortals to question the mighty algorithm.

We hope you’ve enjoyed Photobucket. May God have mercy on your soul.
