Subscriber Week 2024 - FAQ

#1. What is Subscriber Week?

The first seven days of the new year will be a celebration of all things Vinegar Syndrome! We will be offering Subscriptions during this seven day period, along with all kinds of other goodies and deals.

The festivities at will kick off exactly at 12:01 PM EST on Monday, January 1st and will continue through Sunday, January 7th at 11:59 PM EST. New products (disc releases & merch) will be added to the site everyday at exactly 12:01 PM EST.

We will also have a special section featuring discounted products, refreshed on a daily basis at 12:01 PM EST. This will include all types of releases: VS, VSA, VSP and some Partner Label titles. Inventory in this section may be limited, so it will be first come, first served.

#2. Will I be able to add to an existing order during this period?

Yes! Order Stacking will be enabled during this 7-day period, and will continue through January 14th. Just pay for shipping on your first order, and on all additional orders throughout the event you can use the special "Add to my existing order" free shipping option at checkout.


#3. What is a Subscription? How much will it cost?

Being a Subscriber is hands down the best way to experience all things Vinegar Syndrome. The benefits are absolutely massive. As a Subscriber, you'll not only get every single 2024 VS branded release (including all slipcover editions, mystery and surprise titles, etc.) at 50% off SRP, but your orders will ship before everyone else's! And we're not done yet: All subscribers will receive exclusive 50% off SRP discounts good for each and every title released by our sub-labels in 2024: Vinegar Syndrome Archive (VSA), Vinegar Syndrome Ultra (VSU), Vinegar Syndrome Pictures (VSP), Vinegar Syndrome Labs (VSL), Cinématographe (see below!) and even releases on our sister site Mélusine. Subscribers will also receive 50% off SRP on our growing roster of Partner Labels for 2024 releases. Just explore the Partner Label section of our website for a glimpse into the eclectic mixture of Labels.

We sell our annual subscriptions as a single purchase and we expect the prices to be around:

U.S. = $1000
+ additional shipping costs for Canada and International customers


#4. I'm a current Subscriber in 2023, what do I need to know?

Big thanks for being with us in 2023! You will be receiving an exclusive $75 Renewal Coupon later this month, good towards renewing your subscription in 2024.


#5. What about Subscriber related discounts during the Subscriber Week period?

Good question. If you are looking to become a Subscriber in 2024, you should do that first before purchasing anything else. Immediately after completing checkout on a Subscription, qualifying products will automatically be discounted to 50% off SRP and future orders will automatically be added to your first Subscriber package for the month of January.


#6. Do you have a day-by-day breakdown of what products will be added?

Important note: the '3 Regular VS' titles are included in the 2024 Subscription. Everything else will be available at a discounted rate (50% off SRP) for 2024 Subscribers.

#7. What is Cinématographe?

Taking its name from the Lumière Brothers invention of the same name, Cinématographe is a new sub-label from Vinegar Syndrome that seeks to fill gaps in the canon of American cinema. Offering a mix of auteur driven studio films produced during the New Hollywood era of the late 1960s and 70s all the way through the indie boom of the 1980s and 90s, Cinématographe will explore the wide breadth of American moviemaking, spanning numerous genres and scales of production. Curated and produced by Vinegar Syndrome's Justin LaLiberty, each limited edition release will be housed in a specially designed, cloth-bound, media book with embossed foil titles and custom molded disc trays accompanied by a slipcase featuring newly commissioned art and an individually numbered J-card.


#8. When will everything ship?

We will begin shipping orders placed during this period around January 15th, with 2024 Subscriber packages being shipped first.

#9. This is all great, but my Black Friday order still hasn't shipped yet.
