After reading this I am now officially anxious to get the Prop Letter

Well, this was posted on Atu2 and answers a lot of questions:

Dear U2 fan and Propaganda reader

We trust you have received your letter and unique ID number outlining
the
special U2.Com membership offer for all Propaganda subscribers.

We know that some of you will have more detailed questions about how
this
special U2.Com Membership offer works - and we wanted to answer some of
those questions promptly.

The following FAQ will hopefully answer most of your questions.

Q - Will there be any more issues of Propaganda ?
A - No, the band have decided that its moment has passed and that the
net is
now the best way to communicate with the global U2 audience.

Q - As a subscriber I used to get priority booking for U2 concert
tickets -
will I still get this priority ? A - Yes, by joining U2.Com. Because
your
subscription to Propaganda was partly unfulfilled, U2.Com is now
offering
you half price membership to the all new U2.Com site. This membership
also
qualifies you for priority booking of concert tickets before they go on
general sale in January.

Q - What about non-Propaganda subscribers who become members of U2.Com
? A -
All U2.Com members will be able to buy tickets for the 2005 Tour but
Propaganda subscribers who join U2.Com go straight to the front of the
line
when the concert tickets are made available.

Q - Are all Propaganda subscribers getting the $20 reduction in
membership
of U2.Com ? A - Yes.

Q - How many tickets will I be able to buy under the priority booking
arrangement as a member of U2.Com ? A - You will be able to buy two
tickets
for any indoor U2 show or four tickets for any outdoor U2 show.

Q - Why is the unique ID number on the card I have been sent so
important ?
A - It enables you to join U2.Com at 50% off. If you want to take
advantage
of this offer, you will need to protect your ID number and make sure
no-one
else can access it. Once this number is used to join u2.com and take
advantage of the ticket offer, it cannot be used again. (If someone else
used your number to buy tickets, you would not be able to use it
yourself).

Q - What other benefits do subscribers to U2.Com receive ?
A - As well as guaranteed priority booking for concert sales, U2.Com
members
will also receive a special introductory gift - a stunning
credit-card-shaped U2.Com membership card in silver, red and black.
Members
can also immediately set up their own U2.Com e-mail address (eg.
George@U... ) with a web-based mail service like Hotmail. With their
unique log-in details, U2.Com members will gain access to exclusive band
stories, features and other online content, including on-the-road
reports
and diaries when the tour kicks off.

Q - Sounds good, anything else ?
A - U2.Com members will also be able to gain free access to full length
audio and video streams along with downloads of new U2 material and
rare and
unseen material.
Plus:
- access to all archived U2.Com news, including features from
Propaganda.
- Digital Content such as screen savers, on-line calendar and other
tools.
- Members-Only' message boards and discussion forums within Zootopia
along
with a regular email newsletter to keep you up to speed with band and
site.

Q - How About U2 Merchandise ?
A - All U2.Com members immediately qualify for a 25% discount on their
first purchase from the U2 Online Store - just in time for Christmas !

Q - Does it matter when Propaganda subscribers join U2.Com ?
A - All U2.Com members will be given access to buy tickets one week
ahead of
the general public. The more people in membership prior to the general
public sale, the more likely we can guarantee your ticket choice. This
offer
to Propaganda subscribers puts them first in line if they take up
membership
of U2.Com - guaranteeing priority ticketing. (When U2 tickets go on
sale,
there is usually quite a rush!)

Q - When can I become a member of U2.Com ?
A - With the launch of the new U2.Com site in the week beginning Monday
November 22nd, coinciding with the worldwide release of 'How To
Dismantle An
Atomic Bomb'.


Look forward to meeting you all in the new U2.Com - and on the road
with the
greatest live band in the world!

Best wishes
U2.Com Team

Edited to say: Now I will be freaking out about getting that fucking letter from Propaganda.

This is the 'special' gift?

I think that was a list, I didn't interpret the gift as being the card, but I could be wrong.

Personally I couldn't care less about the gift, it's the priority status for tickets for former prop members that interests me.

I think it kinda sucks that Prop subscribers get priority before even other U2.com members.

They should at least offer 2 tix for 2 shows like last time around.

Now I am tempted to purchase a membership for various members of my family, including the dog just to get more tickets, but of course, I stand the chance of getting shitty ones either way.

That was my reaction. I'll probably be attacking the mailman for the next several days.

I really fucking hope I get this letter.

Especially since I read something on the Prop website's FAQ that said something about 3rd class mail not being forwarded.... which means it will most likely end up being sent to my old addy (which is ok, it's my mom's house) if for some reason my addy change didn't take.

I HATE this part of things!

This is the very least (and I do mean least) Prop can do for all of us who paid our $40 nearly four years ago and only got one issue of the magazine.

i'm definetly getting like 3 memberships, have to to gaurantee good seats. I want to get a show with GA (if there is GA) and one with really good seats. Maybe $$ for one more?? I don't know. It's not a bad deal, going with a friend you basically pay $20 extra a ticket per person.

I am a Propaganda subscriber who still had 2 issues left on my subscription. I joined at U2.com earlier this week just to insure my membership...but I never received a letter from Propaganda. Will they recognize that I am a Prop. member over at U2.com?? Will they refund me my $20 since I was a member of Prop. previously??

Who can I contact to clear this up?

i wonder how many scalpers will buy a membership and get 4 tickets to a stadium show. $40 is nothing compared to the major $$ they'll turn on those tickets.

I don't remember how many issues I received. That is, I am not sure if I am still one of those unfulfilled memberships and am unsure if I should be expecting a letter. Does anyone know of a way I can check?

Wow. I get to pay twice as much as a prop member, and still don't get guaranteed tickets.

No thanks.

Well I was a Prop member long before that and they screwed me over so I never renewed. I guess since I haven't gotten screwed over in the past 4 years I should get pushed toward the back of the line

It should be equal for all members of U2.com, we're all paying.

Lord, why are they so disorganized? I only got 2 issues and still haven't gotten my letter. And is 50% off really a good deal when we already PAID and didn't get what they represented to us. I'd hate to be the person who joined Prop late and got no issues or 1 issue.

What worries me is that the FAQ says something to the effect of, "we trust you've gotten your letter." Duh, is it that hard to print out mailing labels for all the subscribers and send them out?!

NOTE TO PROP/U2.COM: WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN OUR LETTERS!

I've been subscribing to Prop for 20 years...and before that the pre-Prop zine. After the last tour I think my subscription ran out, but of course at that time they were no longer accepting subscriptions. I've already purchased the new membership, but from the sound of this letter it may not help me much. I guess I'm at the back of the line as well...behind those who just joined up in Prop's 11th hour...some of whom will be paying $60 to not get what Prop still owes them??? This whole thing's kind of messed up, but I'll feel a lot better about it if I can still get good Miami tix.
