U2.com 2018 Subscription FAQ Thread

Obviously, I like the way you think...and write. :) (I was the one asking how the gifts are decided and by whom, btw - but I'm sure there were others too.)

I know I probably annoyed some by writing in such an impassioned fashion about what I thought - I was sitting on many of those thoughts for several years now. The current state of affairs was the metaphorical "straw-that-broke-the-camel's-back" - problems don't get fixed unless grievances are aired in a timely fashion.

I would like it to be part of our account info page, i.e., a question is asked during the renewal process, "If the U2.com gift is music in any given year, in what format would you like it? A - vinyl, B - CD (or lossless/WAV download), or C - mp3?" It would save the site money too because to make and mail vinyl to everyone even when many don't want it is just wasting money - vinyl is expensive to make and to ship, much more so than CDs/downloads. I just don't know why this would be too difficult to execute.

You made great points - thank you for all of your posts.

I think it must be really hard for the mods to explain and defend U2 and their managements decisions re tour presale arrangements, ticket pricing, ‘gifts’ failure to deliver said gifts until halfway through the following calendar year., and also clearly not listening to the opinions of their fan base.

i really don’t know how they do it. 

Well, it's not really the Mods' task to do any of the things you listed, is it?

If they do a 30th Anniversary box set of Rattle and Hum (which I admit I'll buy just to have it) when they didn't do POP last year, I'll riot.

Yes - it was curious that there was no specific commemoration for POP. As much as many people like it, it never gets the due is deserves.

"Zooropa" indirectly got one on the deluxe boxsets for AB, although I hope they do an expanded version for it as well. At least the POP fans who like vinyl will finally have it in that format.

Count me as another person who is very disappointed with the gift. I have no use for vinyl. The last two sets have been given to a friend who loves U2 and does love vinyl. He loved it. In exchanged, I didn't even get WAV or Lossless? That is crazy. 

The bigger problem is the actual content. 2 lousy remixes and a decent remix of Desire I already have? Rattle & Hum remixes? I might actually be less interested in this than Duals. 

This is making me really upset that I never got the Rarities gift. Somehow managed to miss that one because my subscription date was November at that time. Had a weird overlap with trailing and future gifts. Sigh.

This has turned into a very disappointing U2 year for me. I actually managed to get a ticket to the tour, then I had to sell it because I got booked for a gig of my own in a different city that same night. Can't see the tour, subscriber gift is pointless.....Starting to ponder maybe not resubscribing.

I'm also disappointed. Is there a way to change the subscription gift and get the 7" records instead ? (I guess not but I'm asking anyway because I'm really disappointed)

You may contact customer service via the help page and ask there. http://www.u2.com/help
