U2.COM SUBSCRIPTION / RENEWAL UPDATES 2015/16
Q – I renewed my subscription after October 1, 2015 and selected a gift I had received previously. Will I be sent the 2016 gift once it’s available?
A – Yes, we’re now not dispatching gifts with renewals after October 1, 2015 but all those who have renewed will automatically receive the new 2016 gift once that’s available in 2016.
Q – I let my subscription lapse after October 1, 2015. Is it correct that my subscription has now been re-activated and will now expire on Sunday, Jan 31, 2016?
A – Yes, if you did not renew after October 1, 2015, we have re-activated your subscription and it will now expire on Sunday, Jan 31, 2016. We wanted to make sure you had all the information on the 2016 subscription offer before deciding whether or not to renew.
Q – Even though you have extended my subscription until the end of January, if I renew now anyway - so there’s no risk of me forgetting nearer the time - will I get the 2016 gift once it’s available?
A – We suggest waiting to renew your subscription until the new 2016 offer is announced in January. We’ll be emailing you with that information and you can then decide if you want to renew. (If you do renew now, we won’t be dispatching gifts related to earlier offers - such as the double vinyl album Another Time Another Place or the book North Side Story. )
Q – I have already renewed my subscription after October 1, 2015… when will that subscription term end?
A - If you’ve already resubscribed for 2016 AND your expiration date was between Oct 1, 2016 and Jan 31, 2017, you’ll also receive an extension. Your renewed subscription term will now end on January 31, 2017 and you’ll be sent the 2016 subscription gift once this is available.
Q – My subscription lapsed on or after October 1, 2015, and I understand you are re-activating my subscription to now expire on Jan 31, 2016. Does this affect my priority group as a subscriber?
A – No. Subscribers will remain in the the priority group they were in before this extension.
