Just got an email offering 20% off credit packs if bought within the next 24 hours.

"One day only    
Save 20% on any iStock credit pack for the next 24 hours using promo code xxx. Then do a little happy dance because each time you download an iStock file youre bringing us one step closer to our giving goal."


So I guess contributors are having to pay as usual for the reduction, ergo we are paying for their charity giving thingy despite the promise that we wouldn't.
"In case youre wondering, this will have no impact on your royalties. You might even see a nice boost in downloads."
See, always ambiguities, as we'll have the same royalty percentage on a lower total. Maybe we'll see the 'nice boost in downloads'. </Pollyanna>

I don't have that, but I do have one from last week saying Agency files were 30% off - is 45 to 175 credits less than they were before? I've lost track (and that doesn't really affect me).

However, the pricing is now really odd - the same image is much, much cheaper on iStock than it is on Getty. See a Rubberball image on iStock (number 14628342) from $79 to $255 and on Getty Images, (number 104302741) from $25 to $600 (the size closest to the $79 version at iStock is $205 on Getty).

$255 vs. $600 is a huge difference...

I didn't get that one.
Have you been a buyer in the past? I've only ever bought two files, so I guess they probably guessed I wouldn't be in the Agency target market.

I've never been a buyer. Ages ago I created a test account when there was some bug that I was gathering data on. That test account has never uploaded or downloaded, but I still keep it around to see what e-mails it receives.

I just received the 20% off any credit pack e-mail - coming to my contributor account, and nothing to the test account that received the 30% off agency e-mail.

Just got mine, so yours might just be delayed. My account is a contributor and buyer account, and I've purchased more than I've contributed, #s-wise.
