Summer Subscriber Week 2023 - FAQ

#1. What exactly is Summer Subscriber Week?

The first seven days of July will be our first Summer Subscriber Week. We will be offering VS Subscriptions for July through the end of the year during this seven day period, along with all kinds of other goodies and deals.

The festivities at VinegarSyndrome.com will kick off exactly at 12:01 PM EDT on Saturday, July 1st and will continue through Friday, July 7th at 11:59 PM EDT. 

We will also have a special section featuring discounted products, refreshed on a daily basis at 12:01 PM EDT. This will include all types of releases: VS, VSA, VSP, Peekarama 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 July 16th. 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?

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 VS branded title released during your subscribership (including all slipcover editions, mystery and surprise titles, etc.) at 50% off SRP, but your monthly packages 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 during your subscribership: Vinegar Syndrome Archive (VSA), Vinegar Syndrome Ultra (VSU), Vinegar Syndrome Pictures (VSP), Vinegar Syndrome Labs (VSL), Peekarama, etc. Subscribers will also receive 50% off SRP on our growing roster of Partner Labels titles released during your subscribership. Just explore the Partner Label section of our website for a glimpse into the eclectic mixture of Labels.

Important Note: For clarification, exclusive 50% off SRP discounts are not available for any products released before the start of your Subscription starting in July. 

 

#4. What Subscription can I get in July?

We sell our annual Subscription in January during our regular Subscriber Week. In July during Summer Subscriber Week, we will be offering a Subscription which will include all VS titles released in July through the end of the year. Subscribers will also receive 50% off SRP discounts for all VS related sub-labels and Partner Labels released in July through the end of the year. 

 

#5. How much will this Subscription cost?

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

Domestic U.S. = $TBD
Canada = $TBD
International = $TBD

 

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

Good question. If you are looking to become a Subscriber during the Summer Subscriber Week event, 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 Subscription package shipping later in July.

 

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

Important note: the '4 Regular VS' titles are included in the 2023 Subscription. Everything else will be available at a discounted rate (50% off SRP) for Subscribers.

#8. When will everything ship?

We will begin shipping orders placed during this period on July 17th, with Subscriber packages being shipped first. Please allow extra time for shipping due to expected high order volume. We hope to have everything shipped out by August 1st.



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

We are expecting to have all Halfway to Black Friday orders shipped out before Summer Subscriber Week begins.

 

#10. Important notice regarding adult products starting in July 2023.

Beginning in July of this year, all hardcore and some softcore titles will no longer be available for purchase at VinegarSyndrome.com. We will be launching a special website on August 1st that will specialize in all things Sexploitation. By separating these films, we will not only be able to streamline the checkout process on the VS website, but we will be more than doubling the number of sex films released on home video, including adding more diverse film selections into the mix. We are very excited about this development and look forward to sharing more information with you soon.

A few important notes:
1. We will be allowing cross-site purchasing / Order Stacking. If you have an open order on one site, you will be able to add to that package on the other.
2. Hardcore, and some soft, titles that were released with the VS branding (inclusive of all older Peekarama titles, standalone releases, and some Drive-In Collection films) will be phased out. For example: once a sex film with a VS catalog number sells out, its VS edition will be OOP. Select DVD only releases will eventually be re-pressed as BDs on the new site. Due to this, all VS branded sex titles will be heavily discounted once the new website is live.
3. In addition to increasing our hardcore and sexploitation output, several other labels will be joining this new website, including one of the most prominent and historic American sexploitation/hardcore film producers whose vast catalog will be put into release.
