Well isn’t this a fine Friday morning surprise?
An email received from the G.I. Joe Collectors Club reveals that they have started shipping their membership exclusive figures for 2012! For us 3 3/4″ Real American Hero fans, that means Footloose should be in hand within the next few weeks! Woo hoo!
The letter also provides some instructions for renewing memberships within the new Club online store system. Check out the full email below!
Here are the latest updates from the G.I. Joe Collectors’ Club:
SURPRISE! This week we started mailing the FREE membership figures for 2012! We were able to get these manufactured much earlier this year, so off they go to you! It will take several weeks for them to reach all of the membership, so please be patient. If you don’t receive your figure by the end of May, please let us know.
In your April issue of the Club Magazine, you will find a letter that offers: credit card fraud counseling; instructions on how to place a credit alert on your accounts; and a free one-year subscription to a Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Recovery Service that we have purchased on your behalf.
If you have received any evidence of fraud on your credit cards, please call and make a report with the 800 number listed in the letter for the recovery services.
If you desire to take advantage of the Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Recovery Service, your letter contains an individually assigned certificate number that will allow you to activate the service. Do not share this certificate number with anyone as it is a one-time use certificate. In addition, you will need to activate your service by June 15, 2012. This service will last for 12 months once you activate it. Again, we apologize for any issues this problem has caused our membership.
Please note that your Club Magazine will be approximately 2 weeks later than normal as we wanted to give you time to check your mailing addresses in the new Club Store before we used it for the first mailing. You should receive your issue by May 4th. Please contact us after that date if you have not received your magazine.
Next week we will have the memberships back in the store. If you need to renew, all you have to do is put a credit card on file before your billing date (see My Account when you log in). The system will bill your renewal on that date. If you expire, you will need to go to the store, select the membership of your choice and check out. Then you will start again with the next mailing.
Finally, we are still working on getting all of our software and process back to normal. We hope to have registration available for G.I. Joe Con soon. We will send out an email when this is online.
Thanks for your support!
I thought this was the biggest news in the email when I read it last night: “and a free one-year subscription to a Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Recovery Service that we have purchased on your behalf.”
I’m sure the habitual complainers will still feel entitled to free toys and refuse to cut the club any slack, but that’s a great (and unexpected) move on their part.
I agree that it is both a significant gesture and an appropriate course of action.
Awesome. Hope to see him soon! Living three hours south of the club it would be a nice weekend surprise.
Good stuff! I think the Club are a stand-up bunch, and it’s pretty nice to see some good news from them after a string of bad.
i joined the club (1st time member) and have yet to even receive a single email from them.
however, i dont need a penpal, just my footloose.
