Here's an important message from Funko regarding their Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty subscription service.
Dear Valued Customer,
Important changes are coming to the Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty subscription service that will impact your Annual Subscription and require your action in order to purchase future boxes. Please review the changes below and visit the Smuggler's Bounty blog for more information.
Changes to Your Subscription
In an effort to allow Funko to focus on what they do best - creating unique, quality collectibles, Funko will be discontinuing the subscription offering for the Smuggler's Bounty box on September 16, 2018. Prior to that date, Funko will continue to offer collectible boxes on a bi-monthly basis to account holders but the process is changing.
Transition to Retail
Have no fear! The boxes aren't disappearing completely. After the discontinuation date of the subscription offering, Funko will be transitioning the Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty collectibles box to retail. Funko will be partnering with an exclusive retailer to deliver the Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty box as a retail offering. Stay tuned for upcoming details.
Important Account Changes and How to Purchase Boxes
In preparation to transitioning this service to retail and due to limited inventory, changes will be made to the Smuggler's Bounty offering and to your account. As of today, Friday, February 16, 2018, all annual subscription accounts will have auto renew turned off on their annual renewal date. Therefore, upon your annual renewal date, your account status will move from an active subscriber to an account holder. Until your annual renewal date, you will continue to receive your allotted subscription boxes.
As an account holder, you will:
Receive prioritized emails communicating that new boxes are available for purchase.
Not be guaranteed future boxes when new themes become available for purchase.
Need to log in to your account to purchase each future collectibles box as part of the Smuggler's Bounty Subscription service.
Steps to Logging in and Purchasing Boxes
Click 'My Account,' enter your email address or username and your password, and click 'Sign In.'
Navigate to the Members Exclusives section where you will find the current box, Endor, as well as past boxes.
Add the Endor box, and any past boxes, to your cart and proceed through the check-out process.
Your entire cart, including the Endor box, will be processed for payment upon check-out.
The current box, Endor, will ship in mid-March, while any past boxes ordered will be shipped immediately.
Once the Smuggler's Bounty Subscription service is discontinued, any refunds for annual subscription boxes that are not fulfilled will be processed back to the credit card currently on file in your account. For example, if your annual subscription was scheduled to renew in November 2018, you will be refunded for the balance of your annual subscription between the discontinuation date and your original November 2018 renewal date. Please ensure that the credit card and billing information for your account is up to date.
As an Annual Subscriber to Smuggler's Bounty, you will receive your annual subscription gift. Even if your annual subscription is not completed and Funko issues a refund for boxes not fulfilled, we will still send you the Smuggler's Bounty Annual Subscriber's gift. Annual gifts will be delivered within a month of your annual renewal date.
The inventory of the Star Wars Smuggler's Bounty collectible box, offered by Funko, will be limited. Existing Annual Subscribers will be guaranteed a box, with the balance of inventory offered to all Account Holders. See steps above to secure a box.
Your Action Items
After your annual renewal date and being moved to an account holder, if you're interested in a specific Smuggler's Bounty subscription box, you will need to log in to your account to purchase. Quantities on future boxes will be limited.
