Cut all ties and don't pay 'em a dime! Host your pics on your device, dropbox or google drive. Upload them to postimage when you need a host.

It's kind of cute that photobucket thinks their service is worth that much.

Bandwidth is expensive so I understand that but $400 a year is a bit much.  And they aren't that useful.
