The holiday season is fast approaching, and the spirit of gift-giving is in the air! Last year, we teamed up with the good people at Coil.com to start building a product for people who want to support Imgur and get some fun perks while doing it.
With their help and your support, Imgur Emerald has enabled us to work on new Imgurian-requested features, including ad-free browsing, Accolades, exclusive avatars, comment image uploads, and loads more for just $5/month — with more coming in 2021.
Now we’re introducing a new way to spread the love with Imgur Emerald gifting! Make someone’s day by giving them all the perks of Imgur Emerald.
Imgur Emerald is a great stocking stuffer for your lucky Secret Santa recipient or the perfect way to show your appreciation for a fantastic Imgurian. You can gift Imgur Emerald directly from someone’s profile by clicking ‘Give Emerald’. From there, select the number of months you wish to gift, anything between 1 and 12, and whether or not you’d like to send the gift anonymously (how mysterious). From there you’ll be directed to Coil to complete your transaction.
If you’re the lucky recipient of an Imgur Emerald gift, you’ll receive a notification letting you know! As Imgur Emerald is powered by a Coil Subscription, to accept this gift you will be prompted to create an account on Coil; you can use any email address you prefer for this, it doesn’t need to match your Imgur account. Once you’ve done so simply select “Claim gifted membership” to be sent back to Imgur with your Emerald benefits activated!
Please note: Imgur Emerald is not available on iOS. You’ll be alerted when gifting to someone who recently used an iOS device. Gifted Imgur Emerald cannot be redeemed on iOS, but can be redeemed on desktop or Android at any time.
