What is up, y’all?. This is the update you’ve been waiting for: your biggest and most burning questions about the RT Box and Double Gold will be answered - TODAY. Probably. Anyway, let’s first talk about the final monthly box. The March box. I can think of no better way to end the monthly box than for it to be a couple of weeks late. Which it is. For those of you still waiting, those will be shipping out next week. Now, onto the cool new stuff.
Sign-ups for the New RT Box Membership Go Live on Wednesday, April 4
That’s just next week, people, so get ready. This will happen at about noon CDT, but keep an eye on the usual channels for confirmation of when it happens. The moment you sign up you’ll be charged $64.99 and be eligible to receive the Season 1 RT Box, which carries the theme of those lovable idiots over at Achievement Hunter! As a note, these RT Boxes are limited edition so if you take your time signing up, we may run out of inventory! Seriously. Limited.
As mentioned in my last update, each season the box will feature a different theme. We’ll announce what the theme is around the beginning of each season (every three months, or “quarter” as we say in the fancy business world), which should give you enough time to decide if that box is right for you.
Let’s Talk About Shipping
Domestic Community Members: USD$64.99 includes standard shipping for you! Yay.
International Community Members: You will have to pay an additional USD$11 on top of the box price, BUT the shipping cost will include customs and duties.* Double yay!
*(Be aware that there is still a chance that your local government may add on additional costs we have no control over.)
Billing and What It Means for You and Your Calendar
Remember with Double Gold how you got billed on the first of every month? Forget it. Things are changing, for the better.
The RT Box membership runs in 90 day subscriptions.
You will be charged the day you sign up and enter into an auto renewal plan.
You will then be charged three (3) months later on the 1st of that month (see below for example timeline).
For example, if you sign up May 6 (5/6/18), you’ll receive the Season 1 RT Box, and you will be charged again on August 1 (8/1/18) to receive the Season 2 RT Box, then three months later on November 1 (11/1/18) to receive the Season 3 RT Box, etc… As long as you maintain your auto-renewal on your subscription.

More Questions? We Have Answers.
Q: What happens if you run out of inventory? Do I get billed and then get shafted with no box?
A: Nope! If there is no remaining inventory for that season you will NOT get billed.
Q: When do I get the box?
A: Once you’ve been billed, your order is created and will ship out as soon as that season’s boxes are ready to ship. We are planning for boxes to be ready to ship around the middle of each season.
Q: When do I need to sign up so I can be first to purchase RTX London tickets?
A: You must sign up by April 16 at noon CDT (6 p.m. GMT) in order to receive a code to be first in line to purchase RTX tickets. If you sign up after that time, you won’t be eligible to receive a code.
Remember, with an RT Box membership you’ll still get:
An RT Box every season packed with about $140 worth of high-quality, exclusive merch
A 10% discount on all purchases in the Rooster Teeth Store after you sign up and are billed for your RT Box membership
Access to purchase live event tickets, including VIP passes when available, before anyone else
Gold double star on your community profile
And remember, you will have to sign up for FIRST membership separately to continue viewing the FIRST content that you love so much. (Not a FIRST member anymore? Go ahead and sign back up today HERE!
