The holidays are a wonderful time of year. It’s a time for fruit cakes, egg nog and ugly sweaters. But most of all, it’s a time for giving. In that spirit, we’ve decided to give all of you a little something special, and also allow Premium users to spread some love.
More monthly uploads for everyone!
This is how I think Oprah might handle this announcement: Look under your seats…You get a higher monthly allowance! And you get a higher monthly allowance!
It’s true, we’re raising the monthly allowance for all of our users, Free and Premium.
- Free users are getting a bump from 40MB to 60MB of new notes per month.
- Premium users go from 500MB to a whopping 1GB of new notes per month!
So, you’ll be able to remember more notes, more clips, more pictures, more files…more everything!
How does monthly allowance work?
This is a good opportunity to remind everyone about how Evernote monthly upload allowances work. First off, there’s no limit on the total size of your account, only on how much new stuff you can create in a given month. You start each month with 60MB or 1GB, depending on your account type. Anything new that you add during that month, either by creating a new note or adding to an existing note, subtracts from your monthly allowance. Deleting stuff does not restore used allowance. Then, on the first day of the next month, your allowance is reset, and you get a free 60MB or 1GB.
Don’t forget, if you ever decide to go from Premium to Free, you won’t lose any notes or content.
If you’re Premium, for the next month you get a magic power: you can turn your friends into Premium users!
Here’s how it works, invite as many friends as you can to join Evernote. The first 10 friends to create a new account by clicking on the link in your invitation email will be given 1 month of Evernote Premium. Have fun with this!
To invite friends, log into Evernote Web and click on the Invite a Friend option at the top of the page.
– Happy holidays from the Evernote team!
