In a letter recently released by Funko, it seems that they are discontinuing their annual subscription boxes. It’s uncertain why such change came about, or if they will bring it back in the future. There is also no mention of what will be done about “member only” exclusives, such as access to previous boxes and trophies for “boss” members, but it seems that these will likely disappear.
You can read the full letter below:
|Dear Valued Subscriber,
At Funko, we are continually working to deliver products and services in ways that are most meaningful to our collector community. While we work to assess our subscription programs in 2018 to align them more toward the ways our customers collect, we are discontinuing our annual subscription options starting January 1. As an annual subscriber, you will be affected by this change.When your annual subscription is due to renew in 2018, it will automatically convert to a bi-monthly subscription at the price of $25 (plus shipping and any applicable tax) per bi-monthly period, and your payment card will be charged this renewal price every two months until you cancel.
No action is needed from you unless you do not wish to renew as a bi-monthly subscriber at the end of your annual program year.
If you want to opt out of this change and cancel your subscription, simply log into your account and turn auto renew off before your next charge date.Step-by-step instructions are included below. Turning auto renew off will not affect the remainder of your current annual subscription or your upcoming anniversary gift, which you will still receive.
For questions or assistance, contact customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for being a loyal subscriber, and we look forward to an exciting future with you as part of our collector community.
