    No more Christmas single you can't play because you have no turntable.
    No more magazines with blurred pics.

    You must be insane!

    Now if only anther 350000 of you fuckers would leave I'll be right up there.

    I'm dissapointed that my membership number dropped from 198000's to the 412000's, I believe I had a few months lapse once a long time ago. But I have been a member since 2000 so I feel like that was a crappy way to treat members.

    I can get better seats off stubhub and friends with tickets to special shows. I saw them at lollapalooza 2008 and that was every fan for himself, so i got a way better spot there than having to suffer through 10c tickets. I got to see them at the beacon theater with a friend who had tickets, and that was also a lot easier and less betraying than letting 10c shaft me up the buns.

    Now that I can get new album releases including the hard bound packaging and the vinyls from Independent record stores and Target, I have no need to pre-order them through 10c's goods store and suffer from late shipments, incorrect shipments, and missing items (yes i've had all 3 problems happen to me)

    My renewal is coming up this month. I know this doesn't reflect the band, it reflects the dissapointing policies and slow overhead of 10c. Yah i know, i won't get the xmas vinyls or the newsletter. But so what - I enjoy hearing them at the concerts, that's what matters.

    I won't give you shit about it. I'm planning to do the same. Mine has lapsed right now, but it's still in the grace period. I get pretty good seats (187XXX) but I figure I could do just as well buying tickets on my own. Honestly, I couldn't give a shit about the newsletter or the holiday single, so all I'm in for is the tickets and the occasional exclusive (like the Vic). But I already had lightning strike once for that, so I figure it's someone else's turn, and since they only tour where I can see them every 2-3 years, I might as well save the membership $ and scalp. I don't travel to follow the band like I used to, so it just doesn't seem to make much sense to me. The thing I use the most is this place, and it isn't worth $20 a year ;)
    deserve's got nothing to do with it.

    It was worth it for me to join before I ever knew about seniority and ticketing.


    The fact that I get great seats is just a bonus.

    beinga once big collector it's worth it to me to stay I live for my Christmas singles, and seeing that I HAVE to have a turntable to listen to it on ( that and all my old school punk rock records, not to mention my full Doors collection and The Beatles, and old Metallica on lpetc) so I think I'll stick around :D

    Well I keep everything I get from the Ten Club..... but let's say I wanted to turn around and sell the holiday single and two deep magazines, I would be able to score $20.00 back easily.

    Now on top of that I have opportunities to attend special events. If I could have made it to Chicago I would have been in for the Vic show. How much is that worth? Well for anyone who went on Fan Club opportunity I would guess far more than they ever spent on membership dues.

    I had a chance to get into the Fonda show for free in 06. I didn't win, but those who did probably think the membership has been worth it.

    Don't think it adds any monetary value, but the fact that I frequent this board and post a bit makes me happy. That is added value from the membership.

    Member only contests and giveaways. They don't happen too often, but it's fun when they do.

    Collectibles. I've ordered plenty of merchandise and posters that only members have access to. That is good for me, not everyone I understand, but good for me.

    And add on to that the fact that I have received great seats for EV solo shows, as well as all the Pearl Jam shows.... well $20.00 is a steal. IMO. (even without the ticket opportunities).

    I'd be afraid to renew for several years at a time, afraid that come 2021 I'd be senile and forget. :)

    If I renew until 2021 and I drop dead can I bequeath my 70xxx number to my dependents?

    Prepaying many years in advance is poor financial management. Some basic principles are to deposit cash as soon as possible and pay bills as late as possible without incurring penalties. You're just dispensing cash which could be used in the short term without any additional benefit. For example, there's no offer like renewing for 5 years and as a result getting your 10c number lowered, or anything like that. Nowadays, 10c sends an e-mail reminding you that your membership is going to expire. So the 10c renewal is no different than an insurance renewal or renewing a magazine subscription. I don't think $20-$25 once a year is too bad. Everybody has their own financial situation and priorities which need to be weighed against the benefits 10c membership provides vs. other priorities. For me, the $ to renew is no big deal. I'm not sure how anybody that cares would let their membership lapse. The reminder e-mail is really convenient.

    I have a mediocre number #251xxx. I thought I was forever banned to having mediocre to bad seats. But at LA3, I had very good seats, non lottery. I have all of the singles unopened. One day they may more than pay for the membership if I had to go that route. I dunno, it doesn't seem to be something people should get so emotional about.

  • Funny how most of the disgruntled members don't have member numbers in the 100's. Those of us that do, and know what sitting in the first 10 rows is like, are more than willing to drop $20 a year for freaking fantastic seats. And a single.

    How can we piss off all the members under 114 because I'd like to move up?
  • how about if we aim for numbers under 8300 because that is where I am :D

    the opportunity to score Vic tickets alone was worth 15+ years of membership fees in my case. the 13+ years of outstanding PJ tix, and most recently eV tix, is just gravy,...

    Nah, it's not just the ones with good numbers that are happy and not going anywhere... I have a crappy number and am never letting my membership lapse again, $20 per year is well worth it and I'm just busting with love for this band still and I don't see that changing. Bring on Philly! ;)

    Well anyone who is pre-paying is probably not looking at the investment implications, BUT I will say this, if membership dues ever go up (and they are overdue to), then those of us with long paid dues will benefit from having been grandfathered in at the lower cost.

    That is a risk reward scenario, as is the idea that if they broke up next year, I would have thrown away some cash.... but none of that is a concern for me.

    I like seeing the expiration date at 2014, and if I get the inspiration it might soon say 2022. 8-)

    it is $20 a year, you could drop that on the ground and lose it, you might be pissed off for an hour, but then you forget about it.
    or how bout i put it this way. It coust you about 5.5 cents a day to be in the 10c :o

    think of the things that you might miss and be pissed off about, and all because you did not want to pay 5.5 cents a day

    You are right - I bet a lot of people here spend more than that at a single show on beer.

    Will never let my membership lapse - joined in 02 and its nice to be moving up. I may forget to pay the electric bill on occasion, but never my 10C membership :lol:

    MEMBERSHIP INFO
    Your membership is current. Your membership will expire on Nov 1, 2014


    Your member number is ..

    there is always a way to keep your membership number :D

    Last time I called and asked the club told me my member number was on the shipping label of my holiday single. My original number was 5 digits.
    I had a number in the 100,000's. I had a number in 170,000's I had also had number 231709. A few in the 400,000 and 500,000. Now it's 600,000 maybe. It's just a random number. I've had so many. I can't look through years of mailing labels to list them all. I've never needed it for anything any ways

    Honestly? I really don't think it matters. But have fun Dude?
    Don't let it expire if you like numbers.

    Do you really think you are leaving????
