You know? I had the same confusion! This was my first time making an advanced album purchase. Initially I thought that WB was just breaking up the payments (Didn’t understand why, but I knew at least who it was and it was for the CD) and I didn’t want to get all paranoid for nothing.
Unfortunately, Zoelinkingal is right. I had to double check my confirmation email and it does say that it is a monthly subscription and that it is $5.00. (at least, mine says 5)
But see, this is what bothers me…
Taken from the website itself:
All Purchases Include:
Instant mp3 download of "BURN IT DOWN"
Digital download of the full album, delivered on 6.26.12.
Early access to tickets for the just-announced Honda Civic Tour in North America.
Subscription to LIVING THINGS REMIXED. You will receive one new remix per month for the next 8 months.
When I read “all purchases include” I assume just that; that this subscription is to be included in my final purchase price, not something WB will continue bill me for over the next 8 months, which is also why I didn’t think to double check that particular item when it came time to confirm my billing information.
In my opinion I think they should’ve worded that differently, or at least let it be known that while it is part of the bundle, it would be treated as a separately charged item. The way it’s stated now makes it seem to be a perk for buying directly through them (WB)
Worst thing is? I still want the remixes, so I’m gonna have to eat the estimated $40 for 8 songs. Not to say LP’s music isn’t worth it, but 5 bucks a track is still a bit pricey for a single track.
It would’ve been nice to know up front about this little bit of information before I made the commitment to buy. I would’ve liked to have known that I had a choice on whether or not I wanted those remixes.
Right now, I just feel like I’ve been lied to.
