Linden Lab is offering a 50% discount on premium accounts, good until August 11, 2013... but only if you choose a Quarterly billing plan. And only for the first quarter you sign up. ("[A]ll future charges will be at the regular Premium price; price will return to USD 22.50 [per quarter].") So a good deal for a short time if only for a short time. Still, can't hurt to help boost Second Life's shaky revenue base. In that sense, it feels related to the recent restoration of the 50% education/non-profit discount:
That is to say, an attempt to offer discounts to existing revenue streams and discounts to recapture lost revenue streams, in hopes of restoring revenue lost from continued attrition to its core revenue stream of private sims.
