@lynnr13 Very Mediocre Person it’s like a club for the weird dysfunctional people who like shopping on websites with below average sales and below average product offerings most of the time except during battery candy corn and other select periods
@ctheiner You are a mere ordinary member. With a heart in your shield. VMP’s have a V.
The program was originally called MVP. Then they stopped it, reduced the benefits (from not much to even less) and changed it into being just a member. VMP’s were grandfathered in, but heaven help them if they let their membership lapse as then they can’t get back in and have to join the mere mortals as a lowly member.
@therealjrn I am sure the people who care about historical accuracy would appreciate it if you’d post a more accurate history than I did. I don’t recall all the finer points of what VMP used to be like. I vaguely remember we’d get things like free mediocre socks and a few other things. I joined and dropped it several times prior the final call. Free stuff stopped well prior to meh ending the program. Now shipping is the same deal as members and pretty much the only perk we get now is VMP hour. Well and the cool badge.
@therealjrn Well since I am not a robot (I got one of the first round IRKs!!) I don’t have a perfect memory. And I don’t really care one way or another anyway. It is close enough. It existed. There were perks. Most went away. Then the program went away and if you drop you can’t get it back (well outside of the wine site where they let people on for a limited period of time if they contributed to the kickstarter maybe? I don’t remember anymore). Now all we have is a cool badge and VMP hour. If it bothers you fix it. I am not a historian.
I feel like after so many meh clicks you should automatically become vmp since there’s no way to go about becoming one anymore. Sadly I lost mine due to a precious lost card and account and had to recreate a new account but I always hope that maybe by the meh overlords that there will be a chance to become one again.
@Apostlii did you contact support when that happened? I know they fixed it for someone else who had (I think) a credit card expiration update and didn’t get it fixed here in time for the credit card charge.
@arbdef I had planned to end mine and then got a surprise. Someone sends me a $5/mo allowance with strict orders I am to use it to pay for that. So I still have it. But the benefits aren’t much at this point if you don’t buy much.
@membrr men’s medicare socks - had mediocre woven into them. Sad there were only men’s sizes though. I gave mine away in an exchange since they were too big. I think I sort of recall them also either showing up in a fuko later or maybe even sold?
I am K and VMP. I got free socks and two VMP tee shirts. ( Don’t remember if I paid for them or not). I toss around stopping it but I get a major case of FOMO. It seems though the only thing we get for our 1¢ more than “member” is the VMP hour. Am I wrong?
