    What is the difference between third and first class memberships? I just joined (using a prepaid visa, of course) and I couldn't tell the difference. Thanks!!

    First class gets you the magazines earlier, IIRC

    I had the same question. Will it affect the shipping for the free exclusive?

    I've always done third class. Magazine gets in way, way after the first class mail members get theirs, but I've never had it affect the shipping on the exclusive figure.

    That works. I joined mainly for the figure, so no big deal on the delay on the magazines. I'll give those to my kids anyhow.

    Thanks for the response brother!

    Usually get magazines about 2 weeks after 1st class peeps get them. On shipping of the free figure though I'm not sure. It seems I usually get my free fig a couple weeks after some other people report getting theirs so it might effect how fast you get the free fig as well. It does not effect any other exclusives you order from them though. That's just first order first mailed basis.

    No problem.

    afaik you can't even ship small parcels like the small box with the exclusive fig third class, as third class is just for bulk/junk mail/etc. Could be wrong, of course, I'm not a postal worker and their regs aren't easy to look up.

    I had the first class membership for the first 3-4 years FP had the license and a third class for the last 3-4 years. With first class, I still got my magazine a week or more after people dished about the content online. As for the free figure, it had no effect on when it arived.

    My suggestion is save your money and go for 3rd class.
