The Jalopy Journal
Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by RICH B, Sep 29, 2015.
Just rec'd an email that they are going to have some more lifetime subscriptions for sale Wednesday.
New price $300+$10 shipping for domestic.
Have to? Gary
What is "have sell"?
Early A.M. typing..... fixed it
I don't understand. $10 every year? A one time charge of $10 for shipping? Wtf?
where did you see 10. every year?
The email said $300 if you are in the U.S. and $10 shipping. But that's all it says. So is that a one time charge?
..............I'm guessing that's a one time deal to cover the shipping on the "goody package".
I was fortunate enough to get in on the Lifetime subscription the first go around but even a 300 bones I think it's still a bargain. HRP
$300 lifetime is lifetime of the mag not yours. Many mags have gone under in the last few years. Is this a sinking ship also? Not trying to put the mag down it's great. But??
Anythings possible but the way I saw it on the first go around that a yearly subscription is about 50 bucks a year so I would spend 200 bucks in the next 4 years anything after that would be a bonus. HRP
Pretty cool that they are offering it one more time for the folks that missed it earlier!
I concur with HRP, anything after four years is gravy
Yes, I wondered about, and posted the question of viability the first time around. OTOH, as Danny says, after 4 years if TRJ and I are still cooking it's a good deal. Plus, I am willing to invest in the possibility of the journal continuing on. As for whose lifetime is longer-well we're all alive today, can't tell about tomorrow. So far so good. So sit down and read some TRJ. Live well.
NO it is Not a sinking ship. I've known Steve for 35+ years and we recently talked about this. There are some things he is looking to do to expand TRJ's business and wanted to raise some capital. The future looks bright for TRJ - enough so that I laid down my money .....
None of us can predict the future,whether it's our lifetime or the lifespan of a publication.
My investing in a lifetime membership/subscription was my way of saying I hope the Rodders Journal continues for years to come and praying I do too. HRP
I sold my "Lifetime Member" shirt for $35 so I'm in at $165. If TRJ survives the next 3 years I'll consider it a win for me.
You gotta wonder though, what happens in 4 years when over 1000 subscribers are getting their issues free? That's a lotta free issues going out every quarter.
Well said Danny, I'm there with you. I got my package lifetime member #981 and am happy to have it.
TRJ will be the only magazine I ever subscribe to and it's a good one.
No one else tie up the lines tomorrow, that is until I get my order in. (missed it the first two times..grrr.)
Good luck! HRP
Nothing like lowering the initial investment, capitalism in action!
I'm sure Steve consulted with his accountant to make sure cash flow would continue smoothly in the future with offering these lifetime subscriptions.
Even at $400 CDN I think its a deal. I love this Magazine/book.
I will be taking an early coffee break tomorow to try my hand at this again. Third time lucky?!?!
I cant find a phone number
toll free (U.S.) 800 750-9550
toll free (Can.) 877 479-2627

The countdown is on!
Lifetime subscriptions are now in the online store...
Just got mine! I plan on living for awhile, so it's a great deal.
TRJ isn't going anywhere...it'll be around for a loooonngg time.
Weird thing is, the e-mail I got a few days ago said the sale would begin @ 9:00 west coast time. But, I went on line at 8:45, and it said the same thing except when I scrolled down to the bottom of the page, it said the sale will start @8:00 west coast time. I ordered at about 8:50 am.
Hope everybody that wants a subscription will get one...
I got mine on the first try today.
3rd times a charm. Got mine this time around. Hope it's here to stay.
