Hey you. Yeah, you there. You recently signed up for a Vinyl Me, Please subscription, right? We’re betting you signed up for our November Essentials Record of the Month, Songs for the Deaf. And now that you’ve slammed your finger on that purchase button, you’re curious about what, exactly, you’ve gotten yourself into.
On behalf of the Vinyl Me, Please staff, welcome aboard. We launched VMP in 2013 with a mission to build great record collections, discover new music, and find a community of like-minded music lovers along the way. Each month we seek out artists and albums across every genre, both new and old, that warrant a place in every collection. We go to great lengths to create the best possible products, paying attention to each detail with an artist’s spirit and a collector’s eye. We tell real stories around each album to provide you with why we picked each album, and we create spaces for our community to connect & celebrate together.
Since launching, our community has grown from 12 people to more than 30,000 music lovers across more than 40 countries around the world. While a lot has changed over the years, our mission remains the same.
Basic Info About Your Subscription
While you get excited for your first box to arrive — here are a few pro tips to ensure you get the most out of your membership.
During the last week of each month you’ll get an email announcing the curated record for the upcoming month. It’s a very exciting day around the VMP office as we reveal our Record of the Month picks, tell the stories behind these amazing albums, and explain all the exclusive package details.
Music is personal and we want you to be excited about every Vinyl Me, Please box that arrives. Not feeling the chosen record one month? Simply Swap it out for 25+ titles from our Swaps menu by the 1st of the upcoming month. Don’t worry — we’ll remind you.
Change or Add Tracks
There are three Tracks available through the club — Essentials, Classics, and Rap & Hip Hop. It’s easy to change or add Tracks on a monthly basis — so you can get ALL the records you want each month.
VMP Store Drops
Every week, the VMP online store gets refreshed with exciting new titles. We’ll send you an email that morning to notify you that new titles are available and a few highlights of our top favs from that week’s drop.
Members Only Access
As a VMP Member, you get first dibs when it comes to things like VMP exclusive pressings, limited-stock titles and early access to our sales. Some store titles can sell out pretty quickly, so we want to make sure our members get in there first.
Any additional items you order from the store — ship for free. VMP exclusives will be bundled with Records of the Month in your monthly box and other curated titles will ship out to you on their own — all for free, so load up that box!
Support If You Need It
If at any point, you need help with your subscription, or if your record arrives damaged, you can get in touch via the chat box that should be appearing on this very site. If that doesn’t work, write into firstname.lastname@example.org and our support staff will help you get straightened out. We want you to love our records as much as we loved putting them together.
