How do gift memberships work?
VMP Gifts work just like a digital gift card. First, select what type of membership you'd like to give and where the recipient is located (United States or International), then click continue. In the checkout, you will be asked to enter in the recipient's name and email address and we will send them an email with instructions for redeeming their gift. You can select which day you'd like the email to go out and include a message to be inserted into their gift email. All emails go out at approximately 2 am EST that day and will include steps for redeeming their gift. You can set the date to go out on a big holiday, their birthday, anniversary, wedding day, or just a casual Saturday (those are the best kinds of gifts).
How does someone redeem their gift?
When the selected day comes, the recipient will receive an email with steps for redeeming their gift. For people who are not currently members, we will activate a membership for them and send out two bonus records with their first shipment! If the person you're giving the gift to is already a member, they can redeem their gift to get the full gift value (i.e. what you pay) deposited into their member account. From there they can upgrade their membership and/or use the credit toward VMP Store purchases.
What does a gift membership include?
After a gift is redeemed, the recipient will receive the following for the duration of the gift membership:
- One monthly record pressed exclusively for VMP members, from any of our genre-specific Tracks.
- Access to member-exclusive products in the VMP Store.
Each membership also comes with the ability to Swap the record of the month. If the recipient doesn't care for a record we're about to ship out to them, they can swap it out for something else from our archive or a limited selection of store titles.
Trust us, your friends and family are going to love you for this.
What should I select for shipping destination?
We have different pricing for U.S. Domestic and International Membership due to different shipping costs. If the person you're giving the gift to is located in the US, select "United States." If they're located outside the United States, please select "International." People will not be able to redeem Domestic gifts with an address located outside the US.
We ship to a limited number of countries, please reference this page to see a full list of available countries.
