Eugene Toporov

So, what do you think about the Mayan prophecy? Are we all doomed and the world ends tomorrow?

While we all wait in anticipation, here’s something else that may interest you.

Starting now and only in the next 24 hours until Friday, December 21, 2012, 5:11 am CST (GMT-6), most JetBrains products are available with an unprecedented discount of 75%. …Yes you read correctly, 75% off new personal licenses AND upgrades!

We don’t know about the world, but the offer will end tomorrow. So get it today!

If we still meet the day after tomorrow, then
Happy Holidays, everyone!

    Still no luck. I keep getting 404 while trying to buy 🙁

  5. John says:

    December 20, 2012

    Yeah, 404 or alternatively maintenance mode is all I get :/

    December 20, 2012

    There was 3rd option too. “too many redirects” 🙂

    😀 maybe the end of the world has already knocked on jetbrains’ door?

    Can’t renew my subscription, hope this is back before the end of promotion.

    Love PhpStorm & RubyMine, keep the good work

    That look like a lottery. The main page works and does not feel under heavy load but when you want to buy the page is not available 😐 The end of the business day is coming. I am afraid that after that it will stay down until tomorrow’s morning.

    @Pierre, @John, @everyone
    Please excuse us for the temporary issues related to an overwhelming traffic increase at
    We knew we were popular but we couldn’t imagine the extent.. )

    We’re working on getting the web site back and running as soon as possible. The current estimate is 2 to 3 hours.

  11. krivda says:

    December 20, 2012

    Well, guys, maybe you should reconsider you normal prices for pers licenses if you got such an overflow on discount-day?

  12. Pierre says:

    December 20, 2012

    Ready for one more year, thanx for the promotion.

  13. Matthew Payne says:

    December 20, 2012

    I keep trying to order……

  14. dex says:

    December 20, 2012

    Should my credit card be charged instantly after buying? Managed to go through all the steps, but received no email confirmation and my credit haven’t been charged yet. Not sure whether everything is fine or should I reorder?

  15. Nikodem says:

    December 20, 2012

    Hey guys, are you planning to postpone the end of the world? Cause You better do that if this order page won’t be up on time 😉

  16. Robert Demmer says:

    December 20, 2012

    @dex, you should be fine. If you have any concerns please contact

    @Nikodem, we are working on, really. it will be fixed and if necessary the offer extended.

  17. Naveed says:

    December 20, 2012

    Is there a coupon or something? I get the full price when I add to cart.

  18. melgart says:

    December 20, 2012


    your site is back up, but when trying to buy a personal copy, still seeing the $199 price, while the promotion is theoretically still on?

  19. Naveed says:

    December 20, 2012

    Down again

  20. Mike says:

    December 20, 2012

    Unlucky person here, bought resharper 4 days ago, if only I knew this 75% off was coming (unless you kind folk want to give a partial refund!)

  21. Pascal says:

    December 20, 2012

    Hi Mike,
    I am in the same situation as you, bought Intellij IDEA five days ago. Let’s look at it from the positive side. We could at least use it for 4-5 days. For all those buying it today, they won’t have to joy to experience these great tools much if the world goes under tomorrow 😉

  22. Chris says:

    December 20, 2012

    Love using WebStorm at work, couldn’t pass up this promotion so bought IntelliJ for personal use. Haven’t got the key yet, but can’t wait

  23. Stavros says:

    December 20, 2012

    I have ordered IntelliJ IDEA two hours ago, and I also got a ref number but I have not received any email yet.I also contacted the sales department about an hour ago to check the reference number I’ve got.
    Any ideas guys on what is going on here?
    Thank you.

  24. Scott says:

    December 21, 2012

    For the people that haven’t gotten confirmations yet…. my order went through at about 1pm EST today and I haven’t gotten a confirmation email (just have that reference #). If you remember on the confirmation page it says it might take 12 hours. A co-worker bought IntelliJ a few days ago and said it took about 5 hours to get his key. Considering they weren’t under load them, I’m thinking it will be a bit longer.

  25. GCF says:

    December 21, 2012

    16 hours are gone since my order and still no confirmation or anything else :/

  26. LL says:

    December 21, 2012

    15 hours since order, emailed Jetbrains sales 3 hours ago, nothing… :/

  27. Jeroen says:

    December 21, 2012

    Oh darn… because I didn’t get any e-mail and haven’t seen any charges on my credit card I tried ordering twice… Will JetBrains now charge me twice or is there some manual process handing out the keys that will save my ass on this one?

    (Already mailed sales about it. I am expecting JetBrains to be really cool about it. They also must’ve had a blast the last 24 hours. Cause what does all these discount licenses result in? Super happy users that will gladly pay full price next year. 🙂 )

    • Vladimir says:

      December 22, 2012

      Same thing with me… I’ve been charged money two times for duplicate orders.
      Have you resolved this issue?
      I have already mailed sales about my mistake, too.

      • Eugene Toporov says:

        December 23, 2012

        The sales team will resolve it, no worries.

    • Eugene Toporov says:

      December 23, 2012

      We will of course sort out all duplicates and will issue a refund. Good that you contacted the sales team, they will get back to you.

  28. Eric says:

    December 21, 2012

    I placed an order yesterday but I havn’t recieved a confirmation mail and no money has been drawn. Do I need to place a new one?

  29. GCF says:

    December 21, 2012

    I’ve got my confirmation mail few minutes ago 🙂

  30. Eric says:

    December 21, 2012

    GCF: Nice. When did you place your order?

  31. Eugene Toporov says:

    December 21, 2012

    Guys! Please be patient, the systems are up and running and working hard on processing the huge queue of orders. Everyone who placed an order will receive a confirmation and a license(s).

    Thank you for understanding!

    -Eugene (JetBrains)

  32. Stavros says:

    December 21, 2012

    Let’s hope you’re right my friend Eugene, because my order has been placed about 15 hours ago!!!

  33. Prafulla Paraskar says:

    December 21, 2012

    The order page is down. Is there any other way to pay?
    If not, can you please extend the offer to at least the “failed payment folks”?

  34. Kirill says:

    December 21, 2012

    Hey guys!
    For those of you who are not sure if their first order was processed or not and haven’t got confirmation email, you can check all your orders at (just enter email and last 4 digits of CC)

    • Stavros says:

      December 21, 2012

      Damn!I don’t see my order here!Only some old ones!What is going on???!!!!
      (I have kept the reference id, can I use it?)

      • Vincent says:

        December 21, 2012

        Yeah, I only see the second order I placed.

    I was waiting a discount like this for months.. but i was tracking . I just want to shot myself. 🙁

  39. Vikrant Navalgund says:

    January 7, 2013

    This is so sad and frustrating, I kept on hitting the blog everyday since Dec 20th till Dec 31st in the hope that there would a discount sale.
    I have used IntelliJ for few months now and was hoping to buy the personal edition.
    How would anyone know what all blogs to hit to get the latest news on the product ?

  40. Miguel says:

    February 6, 2013

    I just noticed this now 🙁

  41. AlmogBaku says:

    February 6, 2013

    Its time for new sale! 🙂
    I really would like to buy it.. but I cannot afort it with the current price 🙁 (I am Israeli soldier.. my salary is only 170$/month 🙁 )

  42. Anupam says:

    February 18, 2013

    same here.. noticed it now ! duh ! Feel like #@$%&.
    Waiting for this discount to buy Idea 12 right away (from a not-so-cash-rich IntelliJ lover).

    Hoping, the sales can hear these voices and feel a little generous 🙂
