We addressed the many troubles Europeans, and in particular Germans, have to go through to get the subscriber's gifts in detail in the following thread (and showed how to easily solve this issue through correct labelling):


Unfortunaly, someone decided to archive it, though nothing has been solved yet and it seems that the packages will AGAIN be sent from the US (and from experience, I'd say that the will AGAIN be labelled incorrectly and cost us fans in Germany a lot of effort, time and money to retrieve from the customs offices)
John (@bigwave) - you said that our issues were going to be sent to LN in February. Has any response surfaced since then? Looking forward to your response (this is Sabine from Hamburg ;) )



Hi Sabine,

I actually wrote to the LN support via the contact formular because I am a bit upset about the fact they still didn't ship the subscriber's gifts yet.

I won't get it because I leave for the JTT in the 2nd week of November, and I know from the past that it takes minimum 3 weeks after they've sent the e-mail. Even if they send it out next week, it's too late for me to pick it up from the customs if the item gets stuck there. 

Their answer is annoying:

"Thank you for contacting Fan Club Support. 
Unfortunately, we do not ship from the UK. Gifts are shipped to all parts of the world with no issue, you should not have any issues receiving the gift once it has been shipped. You will receive an e-mail letting you know when the gift is on its way. We hope this information has been helpful. 
If you need anything else, just reply to this email."

After I got this mail, I wrote a very detailled description of the way it is going when the item is being hold back from the customs. Almost with the same words of your reply of Jan 13 in the other thread. And you won't believe what their reply was:

"Thank you for connecting with us.  I believe this email was sent to us in error. "

As you can imagine, this is upsetting

Currently I think that the band should think about the way how to deal with the fans in e-mails and also generally at U2.com.  regardless of whether some fans have no problems with their gifts.  It's simply about the fair dealing with the fans should not forget.  I also had bad experience with the u2 support.  as long as we always pay everything is ok.  but if we want something we have to wait.  For u2 nowadays only money counts.  very disappointing

I think you're completely right.  Ripping fans of with coloured vinyls is showing them lazy moneygrabbers.  They could do a lot better.

I've been outspoken about all of this.  I'm okay with this process.  I understand why others are not. We have a new tour in a part of the world that has huge language barriers.  The logistics must be incomprehensibly staggering.  The presales seemed to go quite well, even with said language barriers and completely different ticketing systems. The mods helped everyone, who needed assistance, maximize our chances of getting tickets. There are a lot of very happy posts in the presale threads. Long after last year's gift thread was hot.and most of us had our gift-the mods were still helping those of us who had not received them. They followed up, after the fact, to make certain everyone got them-regardless of how we felt about the vinyls.  Not one Zootopian was excluded.  I'm not cricizing any comments about being upset with this year's gift, or its timing.  I have bitched, pissed and moaned about a number of things, on this website, in the past. The right to do so is part of our subscription. We don't even have to pay, yet are still afforded the ability to express or opinions in the free forums. U2 makes certain that none of us is disrepected on this website, whether we subscribe or not.  I find all of it to be exceptional  It makes me appreciatie and realize how much I love this band.  I don't know what I'd do without them.   
I do wish they'd get this giift's shipping started.  It would be a bit U2 if the bugs were finally flushed and things got going right as The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 begins.   😉

I did too. 😎

So, now all complaining can now officially shift to how long it takes to arrive (and whether anyone has to pay customs duty - that really ought to have been fixed by now).

Should I hope to have it by American Thanksgiving or is that hope too optimistic?

Depends. Which Thanksgiving do you have in mind 2019 or 2020?
