In my opinion, the membership is only worthwhile if they can guarantee ticket pre-sale or something similar to that. Their "exclusives" aren't that great, and pop up on other sites pretty quickly.


After the 2005 ticket presale fiasco, new memberships from the end of 2005 specifically did not mention participation in pre sales. So there is absolutely NO guarantee that being a member of u2.com will allow one participate in ticket presales.

Of course they could reverse this, but they are playing it safe after the last presales which were a bit of a disaster and fans were up in arms, resulting in Larry apologising at the Grammy awards.

I renewed my membership so let's wait and see what becomes of it . To be quite honest all I want is the opportunity to get my hands on pre ticket sales and get the closest I can to the band . They could keep the 2nd copy  of Slane and t-shirt . I already have them and quite a few t-shirts as well . I just want to be in front of the stage ! Is that too much to ask ? Ok .I'm dreaming , I know .....

Hopefully we can get our hands in some pre sales tickets. That would make everything worthwhile........

I just got the November update from U2.com.  I am sure most of you have gotten it by now but I thought I would let you know it says the entire site is getting a new makeover for 2009. They always promise to be the first to let us know about things but I always found @U2 to be the best source for all things U2. I read things here first many times.  Anyway, they say the Shop will offer many new U2 t shirts as well.  The shop has a pretty good sale going on right now. I just bought my sons the youth Boy t with Peter on front for only 8 dollars each. That was a good buy.  I only joined in October and to be honest I am hardly ever on there. I mean no disrespect to the team who run it, but I don't like their forum.  I never posted there.  That is probably because I am too busy here!  I better switch to the I'm Addicted To This Forum thread!!

I read that also , that's cool if your looking for t-shirts . The make over is for u2.com store. To get back to the the membership package, being a paid member loyally and faithfully each year , I would like more details about the actual membership renewal package.

Fantastic news from U2.com!!!  Check this out from Zootopia about membership renewals:

"NEWS AS OF 11/27/2008

Ok folks

Many of you have probably started to get the emails we are sending out to all our subscribers.

The gist of the matter is the following:

#1 ALL account that are due for renewal in the next month or so have been extended (remain valid) till the start of the new year, and possibly a little past that because.....

#2 We are updating the site with the new look ( it's going to be purty)

#3 If you got the OLD gift (SLANE/T-Shirt) and you renewed YOU WILL ALSO GET THE NEW GIFT, when that is launched. You do not need to send me a PM about it, you are already in the system.

#4 No, no word on what the new gifts is yet (I know, I know, I was told this week, I just pass on the info) *sigh*

#5 The account extensions should fix the "My account expires and they haven't announced the new gift yet" issue *Does happy dance*

#6 Access to your renewal page and the date of renewal on your profile, is temporary offline. It will come back when the new site is up.

#7 No, I do not know about the accounts that already renewed if they get extended, I will ask and post the answer here.


At this time, that is all

Have a HAPPY TURKEY DAY for all the USA'ians

Baja"

And it's true!  I haven't received the email yet, but when I logged in there was no link to renew my subscription on the homepage or on my profile!  Have any of you received the email?  Oh, and you know what this means, right?  The U2 machine is warming up... ;D

Well if that's true which I hope it is , I just renewed in November based on the same package as last year , so what I am understanding is that I will recieve the same package and then later the new one ? Am I correct in assuming that ? That works for me if such is the case.

I re-subscribed last friday...

I also send them an e-mail telling that I was disappointed to receive (again) the t-shirt and CD since I already got it (twice) last year. Their reply was " Thank you for your email. At this time we have not received any informationon any new "Membership Gifts" being offered for U2 Renewals.  Please continue to check the website frequently for more updates " and I received it on the same day as the other one.

At least they're doing something about the gift package...

The U2 machine is warming up...  looooool   
You can feel it in the air ! Here we go........it's like the World Cup, or the Olympics every four years u2 take over the world.
U2.com was very disorganised 2 o 3 years ago but they do seem to be better now. Bajagirl is amazing ! Apparently she' doesn't even work for Fanfire which makes it even more amazing.

At the end of the day everyone who subscribes to u2.com is hoping for preferential treatment when it comes to tickets. And IMO we should get favours for being a member.
Noticed Kings of Leon made a cool move on the eve of their shows in the UK, they released additional tickets that were either standing or fantastic seats right by the stage which helps beat the touts but the clever thing was they can only be collected from the box office by the credit card holder.........are you listening Mr McGuiness???

I did receive an email about my account being extended until the new site is up and running.  I am up for renewal soon, but don't remember exactly when, I think Jan.  Unfortunately I cannot access my email at work, so I will try to remember to post the email later tonight when I get home.

I recieved yesterday in the mail my 2nd copy of Slane + another t- shirt .
Now to wait for the new package , I guess that will be sometime in the next few months  after the release of the new album . Lucky for those who can hear the new song that just came out yesterday, I am not equipped for sound , I guess I will have to wait till it gets airplay . I hope you are all enjoying it .
