So, I plan on subscribing to receive Soylent every month in their monthly plan, but considering I only pre-ordered a month, and they estimate 10-12weeks, does that mean I’m going to run out of my Pre-Order Soylent and have to return to muggle food for a month or 2?!
I believe Julio said to order from the new site using the same email and they will go through as a reorder. I would probably shoot him an email or PM after you place the order to insure it goes through correctly.
Did they mention anything about family plans? I ordered 2 months–one for me and one for my brother. I would like to get a subscription, but at that point, the most I will be able to reorder would be a month’s worth every 4 weeks, leaving one of us without Soylent.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to place a new separate subscription order for your brother, and he may have to wait the 10-12 weeks.
But… when we all placed our initial orders, we couldn’t have anticipated needing to place multiple orders for multiple people, so perhaps you can send an email to Soylent explaining your situation and asking for your brother’s new subscription to be shipped with priority along with yours. I actually suspect they may be able to accommodate you.
I’m almost certain that members will also need accounts and then Rosa will likely join the accounts under a single family. The account will be tied to an email in that case and signing up now will not hurt, as they are still figuring out how to do this and it may take longer than 10-12 weeks to implement the change. As this is much more complicated to implement than it seems on the surface. Perhaps @JulioMiles might advise us on the best course of action/inaction in the interim.
Yep I just used the same email and it did the right thing. I placed the reorder on May 1, and it’s now May 13 when it shipped, so that’s just about 2 weeks to ship. Glad I placed it when I did. If that pattern holds, then I’m going to have to place my next reorder already in the next few days.
I sure hope they release information about how shared/family subscriptions are going to work! We want to get on a subscription really bad but as it is right now, it seems that we’d get 2-3 weeks worth every 28 days. That would be bad. =(
I’ve noticed a trend on these boards, a lot of people sound like drug addicts when they talk about getting Soylent, sorry “needing” Soylent, as if it was as essential as the air they breath or something, many of whom have not even tried the stuff yet. I’m hoping this is just hyperbole, or we are going to have a lot of Soylent detoxers wandering the streets if this company doesn’t survive.
