Updated terms and conditions for Lifetime Members!
For this special sale price you may choose either the Nelson or Jeanette lifesize bust (not an oil painting or Anna May Wong bust).
Also, if you are a current paid-up member of the Mac/Eddy Club, choose the upgrade feature and your $50 US or $55 overseas dues will be applied to the Lifetime Membership. (If you can’t figure out how to do this, we will adjust the credit on our end.)
Finally, a Lifetime Member receives 10% off anything else that is ordered. If you purchase a Lifetime Membership and other items in the same order, the shopping cart will not show the discount on the additional items but it will be adjusted on our end before the charge is put through on your card. All future orders will automatically apply your discount code to every order.
We are now offering the Anna May Wong bust sculpted by Nelson Eddy as a choice for your special offer with purchase of a Lifetime Membership. So this week – for the price of a replica sculpture by Nelson Eddy – either his self-portrait, his bust of Jeanette MacDonald or of Anna May Wong – you also get a Lifetime Membership with all its perks! Or – you can choose a custom 16×20 oil painting of Jeanette and Nelson from one of their films instead of a bust – it’s your choice! Make sure you specify what item you want for your special offer in the “comments” section when you check out with the shopping cart.
A Lifetime Membership in the Mac/Eddy Club gives you many benefits and helps our club. A basic $50 membership covers the cost of printing our glossy magazine and the mailings that go out to you and the membership. It does not begin to cover the many other expenses involved in running the club which include all the projects in research, preservation of materials, administration of the website, and bringing in necessary outside help to assist in bulk mailings and major time-consuming projects.
Many thoughtful and understanding members donate extra funds as they can (which is always appreciated), or when renewal time comes around. However, we also offer a special Lifetime Membership, that you might want to take advantage of. It entitles you to the following:
* Receive all club journals at no additional charge
* Free admission to any club events anywhere in the U.S. or the world, including luncheons, dinners and special events (excludes cruises)
* One copy every year of our glossy, photo-filled Mac/Eddy calendar
* A 10% discount on most items you purchase directly from the club. This includes the following: books, magazines, DVDs, CDs and calendars, etc. It does not include any third-party vendors such as our CafePress boutique (makers of our mugs, shirts and mousepads), our stamps at Zazzle.com or any of our future products that are sold or shipped to you by a business other than Mac/Eddy.
Here’s how it works. With purchase of a Lifetime Membership you may choose one of the Limited Edition life-size busts sculpted by Nelson Eddy, either of himself, Jeanette MacDonald, or Anna May Wong. With our special sale this week, you are virtually paying for the bust of your choice…and getting the Lifetime Membership for free!
The other option: You can choose to have an original oil painting by the Larry Williams Studio that will be used on an upcoming cover of our magazine, Mac/Eddy Today.Our magazine covers are original oil paintings taken from a black-and-white photo. You choose the photo of the team that you want, as long as it is not a photo that we’ve already used. If you don’t know which photo to have for your painting, just let us know which film you prefer and we’ll show you some suggestions and help you make your choice! Once your painting is done, we will “shoot” it for the magazine cover and then you will receive the original–in an expensive and beautiful frame!
For those of you new to our club, Larry Williams was our cover portrait artist for Mac/Eddy Today from 1977 until 2002. His paintings were commissioned by several Presidents, including Bush, Sr. and the Clinton White House, and last time we checked, his paintings of Jeanette and Nelson appraised at over $2500 each! His portrait studio is still active, as he turned the business over to his daughter and trained others to continue his work. The gorgeous covers for Issue #65 -68 are an example of the new “regime” carrying on Larry’s excellence. See below for an example of how you can have an Jeanette-Nelson oil painting done.
If you are a current member and wish to upgrade to a Lifetime Membership, you can credit your current dues toward the purchase. When you purchase your Lifetime Membership, please indicate whether you prefer a bust (and specify which one) or an oil painting. Thanks for your support!
