Seriously, though, it was a limited time thing promised to kickstarters who backed above a certain amount and have always paid the $5 a month (seems like a bargain, but remember, kickstarter and they have–and will–kick you off the second your $5 payment lapses, whether it was intentional or not.)
The answer is you cannot. And if this ever changes I will be the fist person with the pitchfork at WCC and/or Meh HQ.
I was a VMP early on. I cancelled after a while. Indeed there was a memo stating something to the effect of “you can sign back up on a per month basis.”
I hope I’m not steering anyone astray here in case all accounts are not coded the same. But yeah, I watch the deals until something comes up that I can’t resist. Go over to meh and get VMP for $5. Buy stupid amounts of wine for a month plus some random shit from meh. Then cancel. All free shipping.
Please, if you’ve done Kickstarter or paid month after month, don’t be mad at me. I’m just offering this up for the community.
@InFrom@kristian This was what I see from 2017. Starting March 1st, we’re turning off sign-ups for VMP, our $5/month membership with free shipping and other benefits on Mediocre sites. We’re going to rethink this whole ‘membership’ thing, and have some ideas we’ll try out soon, but the first step is ending VMP for new customers.
So VMP is no longer allowing people to join, a V symbol. It includes a long list of perks. The K symbol is people who have backed one of the two kickstarters. (Wish I had a K squared). A heart symbol is “membership”. Which also includes free shipping, but from what I can see nothing more. However, I don’t see casemates listed with free shipping. If they are including it great, but you may also have found a bug.
@jml326 I’ve been asking casemates about this for a while. They keep saying that there is a membership button at the bottom of their screen, but there is not (and I’ve pointed this out).
The meh membership does not list casemates at all and I really have no interest in the other stuff they sell. I used to be a member but went through a dry spell of buying and cancelled. For $5, I guess I’m going to give it a spin again.
