Thinking about subscribing so that I can pick up promo cards. When I subscribe, do I pay for everything then or am I charged as each one comes out? Site is confusing me. Thanks.

charged as each comes out.

Here's a good link on the Paizo site.

I asked because I put it in my cart and I went to check out and it showed $63 and change as cost which made no sense.

Are you starting with the base set and the character add-on deck? If so that cost sounds about right. The two combined are $80 retail. With a 20% discount it is just under $64.

You have to pay attention. Right now, it gives you the option of the base game and character add-on OR the second adventure pack. You just have to pick the 2nd option if you want the adventure pack. It will work just fine though I'm wondering if there are supposed to be 2 promo cards or just one. One is all that showed up in my subscription checkout.

Not a huge deal because the best reason to do the subscription is that it will cost all of $22 and change instead of $16.99 + $7-10 shipping from most everywhere else I've seen. If you're buying a lot of games (or other stuff from Amazon), the shipping won't suck quite as bad for something that weighs almost nothing.

Another question. I ordered the base set and add on from Cool Stuff Inc. should be here Monday. Anybody ordered from them? Will I get promo cards with that order or do I need to buy add on deck from Paizo and send the deck back to CSI?

Actually, I got my base set and character pack from CSI and I got the Poog of Zarongel promo (did not get Fire Sneeze).

I was considering getting the subscription to Paizo as well for the rest of the promos, but Amazon has the next pack for $15ish, and I'm already Prime. Paizo came out to about $22.50, and I just wasn't sure the extra ~$7 was worth one card.

It might be if you think you'll ever want the card(s). They're going for about $20-30 each on eBay.

The other factor I seemed to grasp, is that you get your Mailer before the release date. So for me, that was worth the $7, considering the promos are ungodly high, and you get it early... yeah...

My order from CSI should be here Wednesday. I hope it has both. I signed up for the subscription and had them start with add on pack so that I can get the cards. According to an email from Paizo, that will be charged to my card with the first expansion on Thursday. Hopefully I get them from CSI and I can cancel with Paizo so I don't have to get rid of an add on deck.

You were one of the lucky ones. I have seen some people post they got the promo, and others did not from CSI. They seem to include it randomly.

I did go with the Paizo subscription. I'm not rabid about promos, but I do like them. I also figure I don't mind paying a few bucks premium so Paizo gets the retail sale over Amazon or Cool Stuff. (Incidentally, I ordered the base and the character pack from Cool Stuff. No promos.)

My base set and character add on just got here from CSI and I got Poog only.Guess I will still get the character add on with my subscription so that I get both cards. Hate to deal with ebay but should be able to sell my extra character add on deck and extra Poog card there.

I wrote my concern to Paizo, but want to ask here to see if anyone received the same message.

I'm planning to do the subscription route, starting with Skinsaw. At checkout I get this message:

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game—Promo Card: Blessing of Zarongel~ was removed from your shopping cart because it is not available.

Why would I get that message? Is it because the promo is a pre-order and I will receive it once The Skinsaw Murders adventure pack is released?

I didn't think there was an option to start a subscription with the character add-on, so you may want to look into that. You either start with the base game and character pack, or with adventure pack 2. I don't believe there is an in-between option.

Nope, you can totally start with the character add-on only. It's what I did and I got both promos from it

Edit: you had to message Paizo support and tell them you want to start your subscription with the character add-on not the base set.

I got the same message and asked customer service about it. Here was their reply:
Paizo Customer Service wrote:
There is currently an error with the Adventure Card Game subscription that is causing that display issue you are describing. Let us know once you have submitted your subscription and we would be happy to make sure the 3rd promo card gets into your order.

A subscription beginning with the Skinsaw Murders will receive the 3rd promo and you will continue to receive a promo card with each release. If you would like to begin your subscription with either the Base Set or Character Add-On deck, just let us know after you have signed up for the Skinsaw Murders and we can add those items as well as the first 2 promo cards to your order.
