So, I had planned on buying my friend a 1 month crunchyroll membership for her 17th birthday. She has a bunch of anime things in her room, and I know she'll love this. I had checked the store earlier this week to see if i could gift, and I could. I came back today, however, and to my amazement, I can no longer buy a gift within the US for some incredibly stupid reason.

"This item isn't available in your country."

I hope there's a good reason as to why I can't purchase. I got cockblocked pretty well by this site -- I just hope you get it fixed soon, or you're out on two potential returning customers.

I hate that they haven't found a better way to handle that. Like being able to exempt the memberships from the sale, and just say they are excluded in not-too-small letters somewhere.

ETA: Awww. someone (and I know who it is) deleted their post after I went through the trouble of grabbing a screenshot and using my MS Paint skills to point out the sale.

And just 5 seconds ago, there's a Site News about it. sonic720 is sure on the ball!!

Thanks for the info guys.

Looks like I will not be purchasing from here then. Seems like this company is run by a bunch of fools.

close the thread please.

There IS no sale on right now, and I can't do it either. Not Available In Your Country. Both Canada and in the US.

The 1 month gift should be available. The longer term memberships are currently not available. Sorry about that.

Um, nooooo I tried to buy a gift membership just now and it said "out of stock". How can a subscription be out of stock??? This is stupid. I'll just give my friend my login info and share my account instead. Problem solved.

That post was from a month ago, so they may not have been reactivated yet after a recent sale.

Personally, I would advise against sharing your password with your friend, unless you have absolute trust in them, or don't about any changes/charges occurring on your account.

In most cases I would not share my login but this particular person I trust fully. Honestly, I prefer to buy a gift subscription because CR loses out on money by my sharing my account. But if I'm not given an option to buy a GS, idk what other choice I have right now. Old friend having a hard time so I wanted to do something nice for him.

Du kannst jetzt auch mit Paypal ganz normal 'nen Abo abschließen inklusive 2 Wochen Probeabo - sobald deine aktuelle Gift Membership vorbei ist. Wir haben übrigens auch deutschen Support, wenn du denn die Seite auf Deutsch nutzen würdest :D

//edit: Ich sehe grad, dass du das Probeabo schon in Anspruch genommen hast, aber dann gekündigt hast. Das macht es dann doch etwas komplizierter.
