.Mac Subscriptions Extended

Apple has offered an incentive for users to join .Mac earlier:

As a former iTools member, now when you convert from a trial to a paid .Mac membership before September 30, 2002, your first year of .Mac membership will automatically be extended to September 30, 2003.

According to Apple Hotnews, this appears to be retroactive... offering all current .Mac subscribers an extension until Sept 30, 2003.
