Vault Platinum Member Store

Post by Bikedo » Fri Jan 25, 2013 3:31 pm

Although a bit premature maybe, I believe this deserves it's own topic.
If there's already a topic about this [couldn't find it] then delete it please.
This could be really interesting, exciting and frustrating as usual.

HI all... I'll try and address some of these concerns if I can since it seems like people are getting pretty frustrated here. First and foremost, us selling these items is something that has been requested of us time and time again over the past 3 years. So the idea for this comes from the fans and we're trying to give folks what they want here. These are limited items, some we have more then others so the difference in prices reflects that. If we posted everything at once or gave notice when they gave up, we feel it would have been more difficult for people to get them. So the idea of doing it as pop up sales is so it is more random and more people can participate. We have it set in the system that it is 1 per order. Fans are not able to buy more then 1 item per order. I'm sorry if the shopping cart issue is frustrating to everybody, but we simply do not have the functionality to reserve the item for you in your cart until it's paid for. Please always keep in mind that just because it is in your cart it is not yours until you get through the check out process. Now, saying all of that I would again like to state that there will be a Vault member only store in the future where limited items will be sold only to Platinum members. It's a work in progress and it's happening in the coming months. If there are more questions not addressed here, please leave comments and I will try and help. Thank you and we appreciate the support!
I'd like to sleep 100 days, my feeling has gone, flesh cold and numb.

All I want to know at this point is... How many "coming months" until this happens?

And how long are those months? Are they Gregorian calendar months, or TMR calendar months?

All I know is that there is to much speculation, (which I hypocritically aid). I want answers, damn it!

I'd like whatever goes on sale there to be a large run, like the inverted bolts rather than having to rely on being online at the right time to catch them. Maybe put an extra item or two on sale that quarter for ~$20, so it's an additional item you can buy outside of the regular package if you wish to.

I agree. Those of us who have to work have a tough time catching some of these limited runs.

I don't think there's a point to a 'vault only' store. Any flippers are already vault members..

I don't think we should be thinking of anything until we know what this thing will actually be. For all anyone knows, you'll still need to go to Nashville &/or chase the RRS for some items.

They really need to stop dropping hints on things that aren't ready to be announced. Nothing good comes of letting us stew and speculate ;)

Even if the shipping is $8,000 per record?
