Has anyone had any problems with their pre orders?  I haven't but apparently some have.  I got an email from the Jars team giving a free copy of Under the Weather.  They are also offering a free private StageIt even.  Pretty cool stuff.

Thanks Jars.  You guys are the best with the way you treat your fans.

I got my coke bottle green vinyl this morning! But I thought the $50 pack included 

- CD
- lossless audio format 
- meet&greet pass
- signed poster
- digital download of remixes
- vinyl 

I got the pass, digital download, and vinyl. I didnt get a CD or Poster.

I got mine today. The CD was in the sleeve of the album, sort of hidden that way.  The CD came just in a paper sleeve. I thought we would get the entire CD with jewel case and artwork/liner notes, etc. Now I will have to buy that. Oh well. Regarding the bonus songs, they were emailed to me with the album download. I also thought we were getting posters, I did not get one. I did get the meet and greet which I'm sure I will never use.

I didn't get a poster either, and I thought that was part of the $50 pack, too.

I wish I could find a list of all the stuff we were suppose to get. Not complaining! Just wondering. To put my mind a ease.

You were supposed to get the poster. From the email it said a lot of the packages went out incorrectly and Dan only dropped off the posters Thursday or Friday. 

I have yet to get my package but when I do I'll update. 

Either way, I will be very happy to get my vinyl. I can't wait to hear the new album on it!

If you received your INLAND CD but no poster, rest assured, many have been shipped separately in a mailer tube.

I haven't received mine. I live in the Philippines so obviously it will take longer but I really hope the poster will be sent together with the package.

Oh excellent- I thought I was supposed to get a CD (and I couldn't find the package details listed anywhere anymore), but didn't notice it stuck (literally) down in the vinyl sleeve. Thanks for pointing that out! I am looking forward to getting a frame for the poster, too.

So was that the green vinyl with the CD hidden inside? I'm getting the black vinyl, but I'm assuming that it doesn't have a CD inside, since it's still available separately at the webstore and doesn't make any mention of a CD. So I'm hoping that will come with a CD with full artwork/liner notes.

I picked up my package and couldn't be more disappointed:

- no meet and greet pass
- CD in a generic CD-R sleeve
- disappointed about offering a digital download, advertising FLAC/Apple Lossless digital downloads, but delivering MP3
- shipped in two packages (I got charged a double-fee from the package receiving company that I use)

On the plus side:

- awesome green vinyl
- beautiful poster

And on top of all that I still haven't received my Stageit Top Tipper prize from 2 months ago!! :-(

You should contact Jay, who sent the apology email. I also did not get the cd. The poster should come seperately. Mine did.

I got all my stuff, and things happen....it's a process when you're doing it all on your own now, so slight delays are understandable.

In the grand scheme of things it's really not a big deal if comes late as you know you will get your stuff.

Here is an update on the generic blank CD sleeve:

I've been in contact with Jay about my concerns with what I received (or didn't receive) and this is his response:

"Vinyl albums manufactured today usually come with only an MP3 download code. Since we are also audio geeks- We opted to go with the higher end version to offer Lossless files to the fans via a CD form. Our manufacturing partner was set-up to offer a ”raw” CD to meet our higher end request. Please note that we had thought since we were already going above and beyond by offering a silver CD with full res audio that we were offering more of a value to the fans. What you describe is a situation where you actually wanted the Retail CD release (with packaging) which is not industry standard nor what our pressing plant offered"

<removed personal comment from Jay to me>

"We also had a disclaimer in the package image that stated “final items may look different” as we knew it would be hard to just show the CD that came inside the Vinyl and opted to show it with the cover so fans could see that it was the CD. This was not meant to deceived anyone."

Jay offered a solution to me, so if anyone else feels that a retail CD packaging should have been included with their bundle, then please contact Jay directly through his email that he sent out to purchasers.

I was also under the impression that we would get full CD's. But I am not going to ask them to send one. I will help the band out and buy one from ebay or amazon later on

I was expecting the retail version to be included in the package, but it now seems I'm getting a plain CD. Oh well, I'll follow tj's example.

Most vinyl releases that come with a CD are like that. From any band.

I guess I'm in the minority in that I assumed it would be distributed the way it was...huh

I expected it this way as well.  In my experiences, most just send a card with an mp3 code, rather than the cd for lossless sound.  So even though it was written in the description it would be included, it's a nice touch.

So I just got my two vinyls with a meet & greet pass. No poster(s) yet.

My green vinyl came unsealed, so I was (obviously) able to verify that it was the green vinyl. The other one is still sealed. How did yours arrive? Were all the black vinyls sealed and the green vinyls unsealed?

I haven't gotten a thing yet... Apparently my order was shipped back to MerchMo...

I didn't think it was that hard to ship something from the States to Canada.

Oh Steve, you and I are at the short end of the stick my friend.

I'm still waiting for a JOC delivery from early July!!! As long as it eventually arrives is all that I care about.

A different delivery got stuck in customs for a long time, and it wasn't until I contacted JOC through their Twitter account, that I was able to get them to follow-up with customs to complete the necessary paperwork.

I shipped my Inland order to a company called US Address. Are you close to the border to use a service like that? It costs $5 per parcel, and I've never had any problems.

I'm a few hours away from the border.  What is weird is that I have ordered plenty of items from the Jars' store before, and it has always come in on time. 

I just have no idea  why there is such a mix up with my order this time around.

I think all of the green vinyl's came unsealed. Mine did, anyway.
