    Yes. The $30 perks I'm assuming will apply each time you sign up. Since it wouldn't be fair to 6 months from now say 'Nope! You get the $10 tier but are paying $30 for it". Since it is a 6 month membership, I see it as two separate transactions, and as such, you would receive two separate pins/$10 shop comp.

    While I'm sure we'll all have reason to use our $10 relatively quickly, if for some reason we haven't used it within 6 months do you think it will roll over when we top up our membership or be lost forever?

    Yeah, I'm wondering how long those vouchers will last actually.

  • CowpuppyCowpuppy Squirrel Squad (EAST) Registered User regular
    I believe it's a gift card, and those usually have an expiration date longer than six months, if they have an expiration date at all. That's just conjecture, but I think it's likely to be separate $10 gift cards issued after each 6-month period.

    Looking for Pins: DLC

    There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?
  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    I think it will just be a discount code as usual. They sometimes have a time limit.

    Also, what if you do $30 now, $10 later, do you still get a pin? Do you get a pin per payment, could it be toed to a date, say, be a member by this date and get year one pin, next date for year 2 etc. Just some things to think about, maybe add these to the next FAQ

    If anyones wondering if their club PA payment went through, check if you can see the staff podcast. Works for me, downloading now :D

    On the main page where you click your username up top, it shows me that I'm in the 30+ category.

    Time to look for this podcast though.

    I'm wondering if there's a slim possibility of a new pin in six months. Otherwise why wouldn't you alternate between the two tiers (other than for trading stock). Maybe we'll get a tychocentric design with a similar 'year one 2014' banner...

    Wishful thinking?

    Oh it's up already? Nice.

    Also I see season 3 of DLC starts today! (well probably tomorrow for me).
    On the main page where you click your username up top, it shows me that I'm in the 30+ category.

    Also you shouldn't have any ads.

    Although if I refresh the page after it's loaded it seems to think I'm not a member temporarily.

    Question about staff pins, will anyone be collecting a 'full' Staff set as part of a 2014 collection? Im thinking i'll just go for Kenneth. I guess this goes for any pin they decide to reuse. Like if Valentines pin gets used again next year would you buy it again?

    I don't think you can, I remember reading something about how they aren't doing staff pins anymore because it gets in the way of the staff doing their jobs.

    Is it under the club PA site or something? The site seems to have forgotten I've signed up so I can't check right now..

    EDIT: Just emailed support.

    It definitely is. Just watched it.

    Go to PATV, then PA the series. Season 4 Episode 1 should be there if you are logged in, wont show up if you're not

    It's a fantastic deal any way you look at it. Absolute no-brainer for Pin Pals especially.

    I am going to assume that 2014 pin will be for the first set of 6 month memberships (basically, until next February). And then if you re-new next February, you get Year Two - 2015 (which I would assume would be a Tycho shirt version).

    Not sure if anyone bothered to post the Club PA pin.

    edit: I see myself just getting all the Club PA pins and them having their own little shadow box. I can't wait.

    I would love it if this pin stayed the same shape every year, with alternating Gabe and Tycho colours and centre image. A whole row of theses would look rad!

    Ideally, you would have something like...

    2014 - Gabe design
    2015 - Tycho design
    2016 - Fruit Fucker design
    2017 - CTS design
    2018 - Lookouts design
    2019 - Etc, etc

    This doesn't make sense to me. The first set of people signing up would have memberships ending in August. Hence if you RE-register for a 6 month membership for the 30+ to me if would be as though it is a whole different membership, and you would get two pins, and also two $10 store comps. Otherwise, as someone said, it wouldn't make any sense to even resign up for the $30 and you'd just do the $10.

    On top of that, I think it would be difficult for them to say 'oh, this person already has a pin and got a $10 gift cert, they don't get another this year', it would just be a pain to track. If they just give a pin per subscription that is the only thing(in my mind) that would make sense, and would be rather easy(compared to alternatives) to track.

    Sent a message to customer services at Club PA, I'll let you know what they say:

    Hi,

    The pin info on the PA club offering page states:
    Each year, members that contribute $30 or more will receive an exclusive, Club PA Pinny Arcade Pin shipped right to their door!

    If I subscribe twice in one year at the $30 level do I get two copies of the pin (and $10 voucher)? I'm confused because a subscription is for six months but the reward is annually.

    I'm going for one of every pin. The year variants don't matter to me since I'll never flip my pins over and lovingly rub the year stamp. They're all mounted up already.

    Hey guys, just wanted to introduce myself as I don't post on the forums very often. I'm Scott, and I've been collecting pins since PAX East last year. I'm not super hardcore about it, but I'm proud of my collection so far: http://www.pinnypals.com/?tab=pals&username=scott

    I'll be at PAX East again this year and looking forward to maybe trading some pins with this great community. :)

    Hence why you don't do it. Do you REALLY need two PA Club pins that are EXACTLY the same? Not everyone is as into the pins as some of you. If you want to sign up for $30 again just for $10 store credit and the pin, I am sure they won't care. It is your money.

    So, you sign up for $30. You get your pin and credit. Subscription expires in August. You sign up again for $30 again because you are nuts. You get another pin and credit. Unless otherwise stated by the PA team, that makes the most sense and is how I view it currently.

    What's nuts about that? Some of us might want a second pin to trade down the road.

  • Midas244Midas244 Registered User regular
    Jamie confirmed via twitch: if you do two $30 club PA subscriptions in a year you'll get two vouchers and two of the first year pin. Every year it seems will be a new pin.

    I just got my club PA email for the 5% off discount code (it's a permanent code you have, you just have to save it/enter it for every order), and it came with the $10 off code too.

    Yay!

    I was really busy yesterday so it didn't click till just now how the Club PA logo seems to be based on the infamous watch. I knew it looked familiar, but it only really struck me now as I was looking at the logo, rather than the pin. Anyway, that's pretty cool and the pin is awesome. I think this'll be one of my new favourites.

    And in relation to my earlier post, this is one where I potentially would sign up for $30 again in 6 months, to have one pin for my collection and one to wear around as a sign of membership (so if it does fall of, that's sad but I've still got my other one in my collection). *starts looking up those posts on locking pin backs anyway*

    what is this......"infamous watch"..... you speak of...

    I think i would do $30 all the time. It really isn't that much more for a 6 month time frame. If it were monthly, id definitely cut down. Also the extra pin and discounts make up for it i feel.

    Yep, true. It basically pays for itself.

    The watch I'm referring to is The Pac-Man Watch that Gabe and Tycho fight over in the comics sometimes.

    A good picture of it (or a variation) is on the TF2 wiki, where you could win this item by beating Tycho in Poker Night at the Inventory.

    EDIT: Ha, just noticed if you view a comic on the new site and scroll down, there's an ad for Club PA and the logo there actually has a little bit poking out the right-hand side, that looks a lot like the little bit you use to adjust a watch.

    Oh, good to know. I assumed it would be sooner. Hard to guess sometimes, when they'll ship. Like, the 15th Anniversary Pins shipped that day, but it's good to know these will take longer. I know some people have gone a little crazy camping their letterboxes for pins. Right, @Ayefkay? ;)
