- free stuff
Please note: Racket Records Credits have now been discontinued. However, you will still be able to use any existing credits that you have to purchase items in the Racket Store. Racket Gift vouchers are still available, but are now available at 'Face Value' so 10 credits cost £10.00. 20 credits will cost £20.00.
Currently, you can purchase all Front Row Club releases on CD or Download, all Marillion Racket Records Download releases, most Racket Records releases on CD and DVD, and the majority of clothing,
However, any Club Releases on CD or Download will ONLY be available for purchase with credits. We will have made previous Front Row Club titles that are out-of-print on CD available again as Front Row Club Downloads - again, only available to purchase with Credits.
Things you CANNOT pay for with Credits include all Solo releases, CDs by other artists, Web membership, high-value or limited-edition merchandise items, special-offer items, shipping charges, and (of course) more Credits!
First, you much purchase Credits separately, or otherwise 'Top Up' your Racket Records Credits BEFORE purchasing any Club Releases or Downloads.
When you log in to your Marillion Online Account and make a purchase, before reaching the payment stage you will be able to choose which items you wish to purchase with Credits, and will be shown how many credits you have remaining.
You can use the + and - icons to add and remove credits from certain items until your credits run out, or the >> and << icons to use or remove the full amount of credits against an item. Then you simply continue through the 'CHECKOUT' stage as you would normally.
You can combine 'credits' and 'normal' purchases in one shopping basket A weight-based postage charge will be added on accordingly on any physical item that we need to ship to you; unfortunately you cannot pay for postage in credits.
Don't worry about having left-over credits, the new system will allow you to part-purchase items with a combination of Credits and cash.
For example, you only have 3 Credits remaining and decide to buy the 'Friends' Download album. This is priced at £5.99 or 6 Credits, so you could use your remaining 3 credits up, and pay the 'difference' of £2.99 (plus any shipping charges) by Credit Card or PayPal.
This way any 'left-over' Credits can always be used up AND you can purchase items other than just Downloads or Club Releases.
