Changes Are Coming To LinkinPark.com
Dear LinkinPark.com community member,
We are getting ready to migrate LinkinPark.com to a brand new platform. Below is helpful information on what’s to come in the upcoming weeks.
Please read carefully.
Your LinkinPark.com Account
Your account is currently registered under the email address where you received this message. You will need to use this same email address to activate your new account, and you have until August 14th to update any of your information. Making any changes to your account after August 14th will not be possible until on or around August 29th.
When will the migration take place?
On or around August 29th, you will receive an email with instructions on how to activate your new LinkinPark.com account. LinkinPark.com will look the same, and we are working on launching a brand new design for the near future.
I’m an LPU Member, how does this affect me?
Your membership expiration date won’t change. We will be bringing over all of your LPU membership information onto the new platform. On August 15th, the LPU Store and all LPU Membership products will be unavailable for purchase until the launch of the new LPU Store. LinkinPark.com and the LPU Hub will look the same for now.
Can I still buy an LPU 15 Bundle or renew my membership before the migration?
If you haven’t purchased an LPU 15 Bundle, or renewed your membership, we encourage you to do so before August 15th. You will also have the ability to purchase an LPU membership or LPU 15 Bundle after the new LPU Store launches.
Visit the LPU Store: LinkinPark.com/LPUStore
