All-Access VIP coming soon
About All-Access VIP -- Live now on 247Sports
All-Access VIP (AAVIP) is a loyalty program established to give 247Sports subscribers more value to their membership at no additional cost.
All-Access VIP has been the most requested feature/product from users since we launched the company in August, 2010. This is our opportunity to say "thank you" for your support.
All-Access VIP allows both annual and monthly subscribers to read ALL content in the network including articles and VIP posts on any site in the network. Monthly subscribers qualify for AAVIP after their third month of subscription service (billings do not have to be successive), and Annual subscribers qualify immediately following the free trial period. AAVIP members will also receive a special AAVIP message board badge and enrollment into the text alerts service.
With All-Access VIP, members will be able to read not only news and analysis from their team site experts, but get insight from all experts across the 247Sports network. AAVIP will allow subscribers to gain additional news on their team and recruiting targets while providing more entertainment.
All-Access VIP does not give qualified subscribers the ability to post on all message boards throughout the network. AAVIP subscribers can only post on their designated team site message board unless a message board is already set up to allow posts from any registered user.
All-Access VIP is not available during any free trial period. If you wish to obtain AAVIP during your free trial, there will be an activation option, which will charge your credit card the appropriate amount depending on your subscription type to achieve All-Access VIP and give you instant access. Any unused free time will then be added onto the end of your current subscription.
Below we’ve included a FAQ on All-Access VIP to answer any questions you may have regarding our new premium access level.
When is AAVIP available?
The product went live on June 13, 2013.
What is AAVIP VIP?
All-Access VIP allows annual subscribers who have been billed at least one, or any monthly subscribers who have been billed at least three months to read ALL content in the network including articles and VIP posts on any site in the network.
Who is eligible for AAVIP?
All-Access VIP is available to any active annual subscriber and monthly subscriber that has been billed a minimum of three months. Billings do not have to be successive. All-Access VIP is not available during any free trial periods.
I just signed up for an annual free trial and don’t have AAVIP?
All-Access VIP is not available during any free trial periods.
How do I obtain AAVIP?
Remember, if you are past 3 months on your monthly subscription and out of your free-trial period on your annual subscription, you will automatically be enrolled in AAVIP at no additional cost. You do not have to do anything but view all of the additional content/posts for free.
If you wish to obtain AAVIP during your free trial period or before you hit 3 months with your monthly subscription, there will be an activation option, which will charge your credit card the appropriate amount depending on your subscription type to achieve All-Access VIP and give you instant access. Any unused free time will then be added onto the end of your current subscription.
For example, if you signed up for an annual 30-day free trial and want to upgrade to AAVIP on day 15 of your free time, your card will be charged the annual rate. 15 days will then be added onto the end of your year subscription.
For example, if you are a monthly member and have already been charged for one month ($9.95) and you want to activate All-Access VIP, your card will then be charged for two additional months ($19.90). Two months plus any unused time from current month will be added onto the end of your subscription. In this example, you are not paying any extra money for AAVIP, you are only prepaying the upcoming two months so that you can have AAVIP without waiting until you reach the three month requirement.
Does AAVIP allow a subscriber to post on any message board?
All-Access VIP does not give subscribers the ability to post on all message boards. All-Access VIP subscribers can only post on their designated team site message board unless there’s a message board already set up to allow posts and replies from any registered user.
My AAVIP badge is not showing up?
Your All-Access VIP badge will take the place of your VIP badge once you upgrade to AAVIP. If you have two custom badges, the AAVIP will not replace those two badges.
Can I post VIP content from another site's message board over to my main team site's board?
We have instructed all moderators and publishers to delete VIP content that has been copied from one site to another. Users are permitted and encouraged to post links to the original site for discussion purposes. Paraphrasing is permitted as long is it is not a direct and extensive copy of the material. We encourage viewing all team site message boards in the 247Sports network, but ask that you do not copy posts (cut and paste) from board to board.
Re-posting VIP content could result in an immediate blacklist/ban from viewing posts from the message board that contained the original message board posts. Banning or Blacklisting is at the sole discretion of each team site's moderators and publishers. General discussion of posts from board to board is permitted as long as the purpose is not to troll or instigate and provoke fans from opposing schools.
What happens if I am banned from viewing posts from a team site message board, do I still have AAVIP?
If you have been banned from viewing message board posts from a specific team site message board, you will not have AAVIP for that specific site. You will be able to view posts from other team site message boards, but not from the site that you have been banned. You may petition the site's moderators or publisher for restatement. Restatement is at the sole discretion of each team site's moderators or publisher.
Why is 247Sports providing subscribers AAVIP?
There are four primary reasons why 247Sports is adding AAVIP to our arsenal of products and services:
1). 247Sports is all about giving users/subscribers more value, more products and better service for your money. This is our way of giving you MORE value at no additional cost.
2). 247Sports is built from the ground up of a TEAM of reporters, scouts, publishers, employees and engineers that all work together. 247Sports is not a collection of individually run team sites and message boards, but rather one network that works together under a common mission. It is important to us that all users/subscribers have access to all of the network's talent, products and services.
3). AAVIP gives users/subscribers more inside scoop than ever before. In addition to the team of National Recruiting Analysts, 247Sports also has 70+ Regional Analysts and team-based recruiting insiders. AAVIP users will be able to view scoop from the entire team of insiders across the network. When a key recruit is deciding between two teams, or when conference rivals go head-to-head, AAVIP users will have a better understanding of the inside scoop by being able to catch up on both sides of the story.
4). As we have stated on numerous occasions, we are just getting started building the future of our product offering. It would be extremely restrictive and prevent us from adding many of the new and exciting products that we think will be a staple of our industry for decades without adding AAVIP. Many future services; including feeds, community threads, @ tags for posters, reporters, players and recruits, short form content system and several new mobile products will require AAVIP.
