OMG, an actual CD (and photo book)?!  I was all ready to hurl something at my computer screen if it turned out to be another vinyl gift. Thank you U2.com!! :) :) :)

 

I felt the same kind of relief as well - I didn't want to throw something at my computer again either! :lol:

Dear @mich40 @Max Tsukino @bigwave 

This sounds like a really cool gift, and I would prefer it to the JT vinyl I had to choose when I renewed my membership 2 weeks ago. 

I wish there had been at least an option for choosing a "2019 subscriber gift TBD" much sooner. That there was not one or an earlier announcement of this new gift is not your fault, and is perhaps no one's fault, maybe it could not have been prepared or announced any faster, but I am not the only subscriber caught in a less than ideal situation.

The additional gift of an extra and early subscription renewal is very generous, but I don't need and can't afford to resubscribe again so soon. It was a considerable financial sacrifice for me to resubscribe 2 weeks earlier, I was compelled financially to wait until less than 24 hours before my subscription lapsed to renew it. I made the renewal with the understanding that I would receive a new 2019 gift, and was perplexed to find that there wasn't one announced yet or an option to select a TBD "mystery" gift.

I believe that people who have already renewed their subscriptions for 2019 should receive this 2019 gift without having to renew their accounts again, and personally, this would be a much better gift for me, since I do not have a record player for vinyl but I do have multiple CD-playing devices. I don't think it's fair for subscribers in my position to be compelled to pay for another subscription for 2020 to receive the 2019 gift.

Is there anything that you can do?

Thank you so much,

Europa Thomas

Please contact customer support service and explain your situation - have in hand and mention all emails/dates/relevant information associated with your renewal.

Please come back to us (via PM) if/when they answer, whichever it is...

Does anyone know why U2 left it so late to sort out this 2019 gift??

 

I'm left with the crappy vinyls that were on offer last week and I can't change.

 

Also, I have had no satisfactory responses as to why the U2 online player does not work. Contacted customer service multiple times.

 

Additionally, I asked for a refund of my subscription due to all this crap and poor service. Again no response - even though I am entitled to a full refund for online purchases within 14 days under EU law.

 

Really disappointed that U2 would associate with such a poor online platform and service.

see previous posts in this thread, if you re-subbed recently and would rather have the new gift, try contacting again via the Help page with you circumstances, see what they say, and let us know outcome
